Diner Reviews
  • "Very nice, fun place, good food but extremely loud. Very difficult to talk to anyone, to place an order... you get used to the noise but still, it would be nice to be able to hear what the person sitting next to you is talking about"

  • "Chino Latino is my go to place when I've got friends visiting Minneapolis. An incredible mix of awesome food with changing specials makes Chino Latino a great place to enjoy a weekend night with your besties."

  • "We were 5, one ordered separately and the remaining 4 ordered the Laab, egg rolls, small tagine and big peanut curry, it was SO MUCH FOOD! We actually wanted the big tagine and suggested we only take the small version so very good service!! The drinks were very good too! The hibiscus margarita especially. I was really good food and great sharing concept. We also had the fried ice cream, delicious, not super enthused about the snickers fried but well that's ok. The space is HUGE and we were in the lower level, it would be nice to go again and get closer to the outdoor seating for more light but it was a cool lounge area so either way it works. I will go again for sure."

  • "I really enjoyed my time at Chino Latino. Great place to go to celebrate and hang out with a group of friends and family! The noise level is great because you don't have to worry if you're too loud or not, which is great and was one of the main reasons I chose this restuarant for my birthday and not to mention the food is AMAZINGLY delicious!!!! But the S'mores are my all time favorite!!!"

  • "Loved everything about it. Had a group of about 25 people for dinner and drinks. Very cool decor. We had a private room with small street-side patio all to ourselves. Molly, our wonderful and attentive server, took care of all of us crazy people. The ambience was such that we just stood around, eating off of platters of delicious sushi, satays, Caribbean and polynesian delights. The bar program is top-rate with fun drinks. We will definitely be back. Great for group events - take your team to someplace different. Trust."

  • "Make sure you are hungry when ordering "little dishes to share." If a guest and you order the Hot Zone Spare Ribs (Jamaican jerk) , the Salt & Pepper Shrimp, and the Bang Bang Firecracker Wings, you will be taking food home."

  • "When we first arrived with a reservation for 5, we realized indoor seating was too loud for us. We requested patio seating and they accommodated us immediately! It was perfect. Our waitress was very helpful in helping us decide how much food we should order and describing the food options. Had the Pineapple drink and it was delish."

  • "I went here for a bachorlette party I don't think I or any of the other girls would go back. Maybe we picked the wrong good, but none of us were impressed/ or sent it back because it was really unpleasant. The seceive was really good and the food came quickly which was good. I am sad it wasn't very good, because the atmosphere was amazing."

  • "China Latino has a unique vibe, delicious food, and signature cocktails. Our actual dining experience could have been negative if Chino didn't bring it together perfectly. The restaurant is LOUD on a weekend night. There is a lot of going on but it fits when the food starts rushing out. Go with a big group. Don't order more than one of any single dish. One big and one small/per person and you will be very full. The food comes out at a stressful pace, but it a fun battle for a bite of everything. Very fun."

  • "A great pklace for a larger party, we had nine, 6 adults 2 preteens , 1 child. The menus allowed us to order a wide array of uniquw dishes. All were great."

  • "My husband and I went to Chino Latino on a date night. We had never been, but had looked over the menu before hand and being international food-lovers, we really wanted to check it out. We got the Polynesian Pupu Platter and it was amazing. We split it as an entree and left more than full. We loved the variety of foods and the flavors were awesome. We had the Flandango for dessert and also enjoyed it, although it was not as good as our meal. The service was pretty slow to start off with, but still acceptable. The atmosphere was pretty neat. We enjoyed our experience and would go back."

  • "I have dined at Chino Latino many times and it has been a great experience almost every time. The food is tasty, the portions are pretty large, and you definitely get your money's worth. The service was fantastic, our server was there when we needed her but wasn't overbearing. The only small complaint we would have is that it was quite noisy and we could barely hear each other speak. It certainly could have been where we were seated, though. Overall, I would definitely recommend Chino and I will certainly be dining there again. (We would also highly recommend the sushi, it was fresh and fantastic.)"

  • "The food was overly salted that we could not finish and had to take home. Other than that great service and place to just chat and snack. I wouldn't personally order the big dishes next time if I do come back."

  • "I like going to Chino now and then. Food is almost always very good to great. Service is good. My latest vist the service was great. The only negative for me is that I think the prices are high for the portions. Drinks are on the spendy side too. But I will still go back now and then."

  • "We had awful service and we were very disappointed in how the poor service was handled. We had reservations at 8 and weren't waited on until a half an hour into our reservation. We then continued to order appetizers and didn't receive our drink order until after our food was all served and gone. After the appetizer we decided to not stay for an entree and went elsewhere. It was my friends 21st birthday, what a disappointing birthday dinner."

  • "We used OpenTable to secure a reservation at Chino Latino last Friday. This was fast, convenient and easy. Parking and traffic was a bit of a problem, but after some effort, we found a spot in the ramp by Famous Dave's. When we arrived at the restaurant, despite it being packed and very busy, we were shown right to our table. The scene was active and energetic....might be a bit too noisy and busy for some people, but we loved it! We definitely felt that this was the "place to be". This was my first visit to Chino Latino, although I have heard friends rave about it many times. The menu is a creative collection of so many choices from so many different food genres! Food was delicious. Drinks good. Highly recommend this place!"

  • "They can't decide who they are. Asian, Mexican or Indian? Floor was sooooo sticky and the entire place was just dirty."

  • "We had a reservation but they didn't seat us right away. It appeared they seated others first. I had to ask. They were very busy and seated us in the bar. Hard to hear and service was slow, at first. It took awhile to get drinks/water. Once they noticed us, things got a bit better. It was still fun. Food is great, but not "foodie.""

  • "Overall, it was nice. Booth was very dark -we could not read menus and had to use cell's phone light. Menu is written with very small letters."

  • "I brought a party of 12 to Chino Latino for my 30th birthday, and it was a great time! The servers were accommodating when we needed to move tables, the food was incredible, and the drinks were delicious. They even printed a birthday message for me on the menus they gave us, which was a nice touch."

  • "The food was wonderful. Server was very attentave, food arrived mostly in a timely manner. Drinks were really good. It was great to be able to make reservations online and when we arrived our table was ready. We went for our daughters birthday and the menus even said "Happy Birthday" on the bottom of them, nice touch. Thanks for a great evening!"

  • "I came here for my birthday to celebrate with friends and it was just was I was looking for. I knew already, that the food wasn't the best I'd ever had, but I love the atmosphere and the wide variety of options to choose from. There were tons of bachelorette parties, ect, so it's nice to go somewhere where the group atmosphere is welcomed, not frowned upon! I'd go back for a similar event, but I wouldn't recommend it for a romantic date, unless you go during the week when it's perhaps a little quieter?"

  • "Unlike most places for late night dining, Chino Latino holds a pleasant late night ambience and actual good food. The service was excellent especially with a big group. Chino Latino was great in tending to all our needs by confirming our online reservation to making sure all guests were taken care of. Figuring out the bill wasn't a headache as it usually is with a big group at other places. Overall, fantastic! Definitely coming more often! "

  • "The food was tasty and the service very good, but the décor was blander than I expected from such a reputedly fun place. The noise level on a Saturday night at 6 p.m. was overwhelming; it was impossible to talk or hear in the main seating area, so the helpful server moved us to a back booth, which was quieter but plain and airless. We four shared two large dishes and it was plenty of food, though it was weird to only be given tiny plates. Cocktails were good but fairly expensive."
