Kwan's is a hidden gem in southwest Minneapolis. If you're looking for good Chinese food that's more authentic than Panda Express, definitely go to Kwan's. They are very fast at preparing your food and the Chicken Lo Mein and the Orange Chicken are both amazing.

I've eaten here several times. Staff is always friendly and take pride in the food they serve. I've done take out and delivery (Via bite quad, etc) -always great, authentic food.

We met some friends here for dinner recently. Kwan's has the basic Chinese food offerings and the owner is very friendly and accommodating. There is not a lot of room inside the restaurant, but they also have tables outside that are comfortable on a nice Minnesota day. Service was quick and the price is reasonable. We all enjoyed our meals,... More

The service is good, kinda makes you feel like you're at your friends house eating. The food is very reasonably priced, ~$9/plate. The portions are not huge, it's enough that you can finish it and not be stuffed. I really like that. If you're used to eating at Pei Wei, P.F. Changs, or A typical Chinese restaurant, this place is... More

Family run. Reasonably priced. Imaginative menu with traditional favorite s. The kitchen is willing to adjust the spice "heat" level to individual taste. Plenty of vegetables used in the dishes.

Good stable menu and will make things to order that are not on the menu. I love the spicy pork and cabbage, my husband like cashew chicken, which is not on the menu but when ordered they always deliver with no question. This is my home town so I go there or pick up from there a few times a... More

We've been going here for years and the owners make you want to go back - married couple no kids surviving owning a small business over the long haul and doing it right. I could be happy with just the appetizer's - great potstickers, melt in your mouth wontons, crispy hot drummies and excellent hot and sour soup. Any dish... More

Had a craving for Chinese food and stopped in for a quick lunch to eat at the buffet. We were first and the food was just starting to come out. It was very average and typical Chinese buffet food. The decore of the inside of the restaurant was very blah, dark and what I would consider a typical mom-and-pop restaurant.... More
