Dinner here on a cold winter night consisting of:
1. Best Wonton soup we had ever had, hands down. Awesome broth. yumyumyum
2. Sauteed A Choy (similar to Bok Choy) that was excellent
3. Half a smoked duck. I liked the flavor but the wife found it too smoky (she generally does with anything smoked)
4. Kung Pao Chicken -- this is the only dish that came close to disappointing. Don't get me wrong, there was nothing wrong with it, but in a Szechuan restaurant I was expecting a signature Szechuan dish to be a bit hotter and more impressive. Instead it was one of the sweetest and mild Kung Pao's I have ever had. Didn't stop me from eating it but if you want it hot, you better tell them because this one seemed to be tailored to Minnesota tastes. Which is really odd because at least half of the patrons on our night seemed to be Chinese students from the U.
We had very attentive service from "Eric" our waiter. Couple other minor complaints:
1. We ordered soup and it came about 2 minutes before all the rest of our food. We waited on Wonton soup for 20+ minutes.
2. Sit in a booth! The huge wooden chairs are medieval torture devices and after I got up to leave I felt like I had been in a very hard church pew for an hour and a half.
3. Parking is....tricky. They share a lot with a Days Inn hotel and there a ton of signs saying where you can and can't park. What parking there is, is limited. We had to park at the far end of a very icy lot.
Will probably come back since we live nearby.
