Tiens is a great little find in CFalls! If you are in the area and looking for a good meals this is a good option. There are good options in both American and Asian dishes that are always good. Service is good and prices are reasonable.

Tien's was great fresh Chinese and Thai food! We got to meet Tien himself, who escaped from his homeland (Vietnam) and shared his harrowing story with our table. The guy is a hero and a patriot. He loves this country and the opportunity it has afforded him. His food is fresh and tasty and the restaurant clearly supports the community... More

Service was very good. Egg rolls fresh and hot. We had Beef Lo mien and Kung Pao shrimp. Both dishes were hot and vegetables crispy, done just right. Medium Kung Pao was hot enough for us, fried rice was really good. We have been a couple of times and will be back. Excellent chinese food.

Passing through and stayed near by. Got a recommendation from the motel staff for Tien's. We shared a combo meal from the back of the menu called Glacier Chicken. It features chicken lo mien, rice, and sweet sour chicken. It came with Chinese salad which had cilantro which I thought was an odd ingredient for Chinese food. A soup was... More

The service was fast and friendly. Our server, Flo, was delightful. Dinners were colorful, tasty, and the tofu was perfect.

If you are really hungry after a full day of hiking, and feel like you can eat anything, don't be tempted and skip this place. Tien's is not quite oriental food. Taste like they bought bottled sauce from a supermarket to cook every dish. Peeked into the kitchen and saw teens cooking the food. In addition, Tien's charges an "auto... More

We came in here and I saw chop suey on the menu and wasn't hoping for much but the food was great. You can put it up against fare in any town. THe food was fresh, well prepared, flavorful.

I couldn't understand why they were voted number 1 in Columbia Falls. The sauces for mushroom chicken and kung pao chicken are the same. The differences are...mushroom chicken add mushroom and kung pao chicken you guess it, add peanut and dried chilly. This is by far the worst Chinese restaurant ever. I guess why they voted number one because its... More
