Chinese take-out in South Minneapolis

Hello everyone!

I have been looking for a good Chinese take-out place in South Minneapolis (preferably around Nokomis if possible) since I moved here, but I am having a heck of a time finding one that fits the bill. I'm looking for entrees priced between $6-$7.

Almost everywhere we have tried, it's been what I would consider to be expensive for Chinese take-out, and the food hasn't been good either. (my favorite is steamed dumplings, but at this point just looking for a reasonably-priced place)

Thanks for any suggestions!!!!

  1. Where have you tried so far?

    1. Try Ming's Palace. They also deliver and it is fast and good!!

      1. Have you tried Singapore, on the corner of 34th Ave and 55th St.? It's not strictly Chinese, but comes close. They are a bit more expensive than you're wanting, but they have some noodle dishes in the $9 range. Good food.

        I live a couple blocks from Nokomis. Chinese takeout offerings in the area are slim.

        1. I second Singapore and would also add Crystal Garden, which is in the strip mall near 46th and Hiawatha. I love their chow fun!

          1. Thanks so much everyone for your suggestions, this really helps me out! I'll have to try Singapore and Ming's Palace.

            I have tried Crystal Garden, most of their entrees look like they are about $10, which isn't a lot, but I always want to pay less for take-out, that's what I would pay for sitting in a restaurant. But I know there's not too many budget prices anymore, they are hard to find. l used to live in another state and we had a Chinese take-out place right behind where we lived that had a whole menu for under $7 but as I mentioned, pretty rare to find a gem like that.

            Speaking of Chinese food, I dined at Pagoda a couple of weeks ago (by U-M) and had their kung pao chicken and the sauce was excellent, probably the best kung pao chicken I've had yet. The only thing was that they sprinkled raw peanuts over it (it's usually supposed to be cooked peanuts) but other that I absolutely loved it and would recommend it to anyone! They had a very extensive menu and it was hard to decide what to get, but it was a great choice. I'll post a review but definitely try Pagoda if you've never been!

              If you liked Pagoda by the U, try Village Wok and Hong Kong Noodle.

              At Village Wok avoid the appetizers and deep fried foods. I like their Singapore Rice Noodles and Chicken Wor Mein (gigantic noodle soup). It's easy to feed 2-3 people on either of these dishes. Another dish I've enjoyed is the Iron Hot Beef. They also have hot pots and late night menu with congee.
