We tried the Trio Restaurant for the very first time because we were joining 20 international friends there to celebrate an occasion. Trio opened up their back room so we could all sit together and have a great time in our own private little group. The food was great! And the prices ranged from $6.00 to $9.00 a plate, which is a bargain! The quantities/portions were generous. The service was superb, fast and courteous, even with a large group. I would highly recommend this restaurant for students, professionals, families, and groups. A great place for an enjoyable evening.

I don't know if the reason so many of the chinese/vietnamese/japenese restaurants in Ames are Cash ONLY because they don't trust college students, don't want to pay the credit card fee or just like the ability cash affords one on tax day. Really aggrevating in this day and age.Service was poor, food was tasteless, no fortune cookies. For an average of $8 each you can go to Kings, eat better and more. And you can use your debit card. Nope, won't be back.
I had the vegtable lo mein, it was filling and tasty....best I ever ate? No, just middle of the road but good and satisfying. Hub had the sweet and sour chickent and it was fried first with just the sauce on the side. He was not pleased.Son loved his hot & sour soup.Service was fast and pleasant. Restaurant was clean and relaxing. I would go back, not sure hub would.

Called, ordered and delivered as promised directly to room in hotel. Accommodated special order and add on to the Singapore Mai Fun Dish, decent egg rolls, pork fried rice not the best...but BBQ spare ribs were definitely better than most...Elle cooked and glazed! Very friendly order taker on phone...you should not be disappointed!

They only take cash if your order is less than $10. Which makes for a cash only lunch menu or over the barrel to purchase more to make that $10. We were here for lunch. The soup was hot, fresh, had really good color, but was flavorless, like hot thickened water. I have to rate places on the food that I am able to at least taste. I've had food in here before and it was good. I don't remember the soup being this bad. Friendly staff. Mostly clean, but the little sign on my table that told what table it is, is grimy and has apparently not been cleaned in a very long time, having food particles on it. Ewww. Nice decorated interior, but not too fancy. Marcydiner tantrum scale of 5/5-no screaming kids. This is a family friendly place.

Place was packed with Chinese students on a team buffet dinner when I went here. I was informed they were with the Chinese Hockey team. As that perspicacious commenter of our times Butthead would observe "Uhâ¦..what?"More hard to believe word juxtapositions followed. Cold blended vegetables, cold blended pig ears, pork and duck blood tofu in spicy hot oil.Looking for something simple? How about Flavor Potato Silk? More complex? Why not Cold Blended Spicy And Sour Potato Silk? Sounds like people are clamoring for Potato Silk, why not jump on the bandwagon? Googling revealed such secrets as "a lot of people know that vinegar fried shredded potatoes sometimes didn't grasp proper metric, is affecting the taste". I hate it when potatoes don't grasp the proper metric! Don't they know it will affect the taste?! Damn them and the tubers they grew up from!Try to pierce the mystery of the stoic and enigmatic "Northern Dish". Try to pierce with your teeth "Pepper Fried Gristle". Ow! Was that a molar? Just make sure your safe word is agreed upon before venturing into parts of the menu with such fare as Slippery Meat and Mushroom Fried Rapes.Eventually "pork belly with sweet potato noodles" and "sparerib something maybe potatoes I forget I liked the photo on the wall" were procured to go. Neither were bad but neither were great. Liked the sweet noodle one better even though after cooling at least a solid half cup of fat was visible - don't accuse them of skimping on the calories!

Buffet so not everything will be in the best shape. But they do an above average job. You'll find plenty to eat you'll like if one thing you like isn't in the best shape. I've never done the grill bowl thing I just visit the steam and ice tables. Stuff I tend to like includes some of the sushi, lychee fruit, random fresh fruit, tiramasu and other desserts, garlic bread, ribeye steak, chinese soups, uh that sweet seafood thingy, uh that other beef thing, the watchamacallit and the whatzit also. Just give it a try.Hey you can get food to go for $5 a pound? I'll have to try that.

Ordered take out tonight. Wasn't impressed. Had sweet and sour chicken and it seemed like inexpensive chicken. Had to spit out several pieces. It was a take out order yet they didn't have paper plates to send with us. We were hoping for a better meal than the local grocery store take out. Cost was about $14 per person after tip.

We almost didn't go into this restaurant because of the shape the building is in. The inside didn't make us feel much better, this building should probably be condemned. However, things did appear to be clean and we had heard great reviews, so we ordered. The dumplings we got for an appetizer were wonderful, as were the lomein noodles. The service was quick and precise, but still friendly. I recommend the food, but would also recommend to take it out.

Itâs fresh and itâs got exactly what YOU want in it! See pics. I usually get the Cali Mari and veggies with various sauces. Lately, Iâve taken a liking to the curry, but tried it first on a small plate. I donât do really spicy stuff and it wasnât, despite it having a spicy logo on it. Fresh, hot food. The appetizers are good as well. Great staff. They are always cleaning around the food areas. Clean. Family friendly. MarcyâsDinerTantrumScale 5/5- NoScreamingKids. A little pricey but if you are very hungry, itâs a great deal!
