Chino Latino Ratings and Reviews

Impeccable service, great food, astonishingly good margaritas. Wholeheartedly recommend the pork buns and sushi sampler. Astonishing to me that this place is still thriving after so many years. Hard to maintain the cool the way they do.

My out of town guests really appreciated the ambiance and the food. They loved it! I personally loved the Senegalese Peanut Curry. The only complaint came a day later when we realized that there was a bit of a wham bam thank you ma'am experience. We would have loved for the shared food to come staggered and to have been there longer. Overall great. Next time we will order one food at a time.

I brought my daughter in for a celebration meal as she had gotten her first job.. She liked it, s I didn't give 5 stars on service because I felt rushed. she was eating the last of her tacos, and someone walks by and takes her plate. I almost said something to management , but didn't. I didn't like that though. otherwise it was okay.

We dined at ChinoLatino last night for my granddaughters birthday. The service was ok, the waitress was busy - it looked like she had many tables she was serving. Very disappointed in the food, we had the queso dip - it was very runny, more like a sauce than a dip. We requested more tortilla chips and were given some in a bag. We ordered the Molcajete, the beef was tough and gristley, the chorizo was stringy. The grilled onions were impossible to cut with a butter knife. We had the S'Mores platter for dessert, it was way overpriced for what it was. We will not be going back.

I love the atmosphere at Chino! I also love their pineapple mojitos! We had a party of 11 and I wished they would've given us a little more room, other than that super service and food! They were kind enough do separate bills, I just forewarned them. I'll go as long they're open! They even printed happy birthday with my sisters name right on the menu. 5☆

Chino Latino was awesome and so much fun! My husband and I were visiting Minneapolis from NYC and a friend recommended it. Awesome atmosphere, great service, and delicious food --we ate the leftovers all weekend long! Super unique place. Would definitely recommend it and would go again!

The food was fantastic! The service was very fast and informative. We ordered the house margarita, and our server explained it was an authentic margarita, without sweet and sour, but with lime juice. He said it might taste stronger. It was superb! Just what a margarita should taste like! We tried the jerk chicken skewer appetizer. Although they were tasty, I did not reminisce about Jamaica while eating this, as cilantro has no place in "jerk" seasoning, in my book. Still good, though. We split a large type of make your own soft taco meal. Out of this world! SOOO much food. Very, very good, with every possible add in you could want. Barely saved room for dessert, but had to try the fried bananas with coconut ice cream. The perfect finale. Not too sweet, great mix of hot and cold. We definitely will be craving a visit back here!

I love the energetic and sleek feel of this place – like a high end classy restaurant. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The plantain nachos and the "Swinger" Platter were good, but too big a portion. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable.

Wow! Where to begin? This is a fun mix of cultures and foods. The place was packed, even on a Sunday night. Food was very diverse and served hot. Everyone in your party will be able to find something to enjoy. The drinks are fun and stand out, using fresh (whole) pineapples and coconuts as the "glasses". Overall the food was good to very good, but the place is a fun experience. Will be back.

Love the pork belly steam bun appetizer. It's always good, but this time we ordered w extra sauces on side, and that took it to fantastic. Requested a booth, and although there were at least seven open booths, that request was completely ignored. Next time I will call first and make sure. It makes all the difference! The sushi sampler is always good.

Chino Latino was awesome! Great drink menu and the place is just a cool place to be in. I had an awesome experience with service and all the staff I encountered. I work in a restaurant and so I feel like I have slightly higher expectations when it comes to service and Chino rocked! Would definitely recommend going

I've heard really good things about Chino Latino and I decided to make my first visit on my birthday, I ordered ceviche, and the waiter came back to tell me they had ran out of that, on my birthday and I got popusas which I did not end up eating, the waiters did nothing about The inconvinice, besides that it was a fun place to be

The food quality does not match the pricing in many dishes. The Cuban Pork had little flavor and there was gristle in the barbacoa tacos, but the waitress did not offer a discount or no charge for it when we told her.

Disappointed. Haven't been here in years and was so excited to go back. I was even present at the grand opening 16 years ago!
Our experience tonight was quite disappointing, however. We ordered many dishes including tacos, sushi roll, shrimp fried rice, green beans, among other things. We had three children present at the table and the server did not bother to reiterate or point out how spicy some of the dishes actually are. The children were only able to eat less than half of what we ordered. When I pointed this out to the server, he responded matter-of-factly that what I ordered was intended to be spicy. My point is that good servers should make customers aware and point out these things when they are not obvious. He did not even offer or suggest an alternative he-- just rushed off.
Besides that, nothing was great. Everything seemed over-marinated/sauced. Definitely lots of sodium and sugar in almost all the dishes. The fried rice was wet. They had seemingly poured some kind of sauce all over it. The beef and chicken tacos were also drenched in sauce. I love sauce, so this is not about that. It's more about balance, which none of the dishes had.
Disappointed. Would not recommend. I wish we had not gone back so we could still have the same good memories of more positive experiences in the past.
