    Maybe you mean Chindian? That has a couple of mentions on the board.

      Yes- I recommend it. Delicious egg rolls, great noodle dishes, really nice owners.

        That place is excellent. The Tofu and the Calamari are my favorites but really, its all quite good.

          Yes, it's very good. Spring rolls are made fresh. Even their sweet and sour is good, a variation of applesauce/pineapple.

            i've posted that the vietnamese bun salad at chindian is one of my faves in town. always very fresh, great dressing. the owners manage the pan-asian menu in an intelligent way. i particularly like the 3 or 4 solid malaysian menu items they've added in the last year or so. even overflogged american-chinese restaurant standbys receive careful treatment and good quality ingredients at this establishment-- i confess to really liking chindian's singapore noodles, when i'm in the mood for that sort of thing.

            one of the co-owners, nina wong, comes from the restaurant family owners of rainbow chinese on eat street, her husband and co-owner is (southeast asia) indian-- chinese+indian=chindian. all in all, a great msp mom&pop imo.
