The food at Chino Latino is incredible! I don't think there will ever be a restaurant that will rival this one. The environment of this restaurant is tremendous, I know it, you know it, everybody knows it. I came here with my best friend, Donald. He throughly enjoyed the meal. We ordered 13 items, and we ate everything. The food... More

This place was so great! Staff was friendly and helpful and I loved the atmosphere. The theme is foods from around the equator. My BF got a drink from an entire pineapple. We did the sake bombs which they recommend to wait for the end bc it's messy. We ordered several small plates and it was more than enough food... More

My adult daughter and I visited Chino Latino for drinks and a light dinner before going to a concert. We chose to sit at the bar vs the dimly lit and lonely dining room. We arrived at 5, so probably a little earlier than most people go out for happy hour. Our bartender, Scott, was super friendly and offered great... More

The food is amazing. They have solo portion entrees, as well as small and large sharing plates. There is something for everyone. You definitely need to be a bit of an adventurous eater, but everything I tried was incredible. Great variety of both food and drink and a very modern and trendy atmosphere.

Started going here about 13 years ago. Excellent vibe, fun food, great for sharing, right in the heart of uptown. You will not find a place with more interesting food choices combined with a hip and lively setting. Definitively recommend this place!

Chino Latino truly provided an eclectic experience for our business group. From potstickers to wings, the food did not disappoint. The atmosphere stole the show.

The atmosphere is interesting when you walk in and we were greeted kindly by several people/staff. There was no line walking in. We were a family of seven adults, celebrating the youngest members 21st birthday. We were seated upstairs by the window, and it was chilly and not as nice an ambiance as the lower seating area (kind of cheap... More

This place is too much fun to not give a good rating. My asian food was good, and presentation is outstanding, but my husband was disatisfied with his mexican dish. The place is 'where it's at' in Uptown. Two floors and full on a weeknight!

Really cool place in uptown Minneapolis serving great food with a Japanese Mexican twist. Really nice cocktails and a fun atmosphere. Great desserts too! Have the banana split!
