I found the Bi Bim Bap to be rather disappointing recently. When they first opened, the sushi was good, came out quickly and the staff was pleasant. Last couple times i have been, the service was slow, the sushi was not as good and the staff was less than friendly. In a crowded restaurant market like Manhattan, this is not a good business model. We will not be returning.
I've been coming to Hunam's (Aggieville) for 10 years. This Chinese really hits the spot after a night of drinking and dancing. Always yummy, served fresh. New clean dining. Friendly service.

I really enjoy going here for either lunch or dinner. I have eaten here for at least 7 years and have never been disappointed. There is a wide selection of choices on the buffet and there is even a Mongolian grill, which is excellent. Drinks are included in the price of the meal, which is very reasonable. Try it---you will never leave hungry.

I went here with a group of friends, and we got the "reservation room," which can easily seat 20 people or more (though there's a charge to reserve it). We ordered family style, and even though we asked for less than one dish per person, we wound up with way more food than we needed. The food was good, varied, fresh, and delivered by a very friendly and knowledgeable waitress. Even when I called to make the reservation, the woman on the phone was friendly and flexible. The restaurant itself is really pretty small, but the menu has a lot of good, different choices. I'm not often in the mood for Chinese, but the next time I am, this is where I'll go.

Took friends to dinner while visiting in Manhattan, KS. Place pretty much empty at 4:30 PM on a Saturday. Two other couples came in after we did. The one hostess/waitress was noisy [loud] in cleaning other tables off gave us menus and asked what we wanted - no time to really look, then asked what we wanted to drink. When she came back with the water and iced teas she wanted to know again what we wanted. We ordered and when she brought the meals she had to ask again who got what! The Food - the Chicken looked and tasted like it had been frozen in a box for at least a year and was no presentation. The Pork and vegetables and a second pork dinner two other guests had were luke warm and massive veggies and little meat. The Fried Won Ton and the Fried Dumplings were again something out of a frozen box and thrown into a deep fryer. Before we were even done the waitress wants to know if we wanted boxes and presented the bill. Lots of training of staff and chef to prepare "Chinese" food and not thaw from a box - tasteless. Would NEVER return, nor will our friends that live in Manhattan!

From the exterior the Imperial Garden Express looks just like all those other fast-food Chinese food places stuck in strip malls all over the country. A quick glance inside can confirm that observation. It is a plain, utilitarian place to eat food. A second glance however, suggests that this restaurant may have more to offer than simply deep-frying frozen chicken chunks. On the Saturday evening we were there every other customer in the restaurant was Asian. Everyone was busy eating lovely plates of food, chop sticks were flying and conversation in Chinese was everywhere.Located near the university, it was clear that Asian students were in this restaurant for a taste from home. The typical Chinese-America foods are displayed on the menu board, but for those in the know there is a secret menu located at the counter. This is where you will find the more authentic Asian dishes, and it is where all of those students obtained their selections.Our family of six ordered from this menu, and we enjoyed a meal worthy of the most elegant Asian restaurant in any metropolitan area. There are no steam tables holding tired vegetables and soggy pieces of sweet and sour chicken. Every thing in this restaurant is cooked fresh to order. I had a pork rib dish that was so good I mourn weekly that Kansas is 1500 miles from where we live.Every member of our family ordered something different, and every dish was a winner. The vegetables were crisp and fresh. The meats were flavorful and tender. The sauces were not commercially prepared and purchased, but clearly crafted right in the restaurant.This is not a table service restaurant. You order at the counter and pick up your own food. The staff, however, appear to be actively engaged in the preparation of food, and also take an interest in your opinion of what you are eating.Obviously because it is popular with college students it is not an expensive restaurant. I thought the meal was unbelievable inexpensive.The atmosphere is pure utility, so it may not be the best place to stage a wedding proposal or celebrate a special birthday, but they have a busy take-out service which permits you to take your food to a more romantic atmosphere if you wish.You cannot go wrong selecting this outstanding little restaurant.
We couldn't find the Mexican restaurant we were looking for but fortunately we discovered âTasty China Houseâ. This is a spacious restaurant with a bit of an industrial feel. Iâm sure that the space is needed, especially on weekends during the school year in this college town. The restaurant was clean and well maintained and it included a full barâ¦We each ordered a 'small' bowl of Hot and Sour Soup. ($2.90) It was a very large bowl, very spicy and very good! The usual won ton crisps that many Chinese restaurants automatically bring to the table were not âthe usualâ. They were a couple notches above ordinary.As per Tasty China Houseâs website, the restaurant, which opened in 2012, is âdedicated to offering the best authentic Chinese food to our customersâ. The manager of Tasty China House is actually from China.For her entrÃ©e, Laurie ordered the Mongolian Beef with onions in a nice brown sauceâ¦extra spicy with brown rice! ($11.95) Can you believe how much food she got for the money? Better yet, it was excellent!I went with the Dragon and Phoenixâ¦a combination of General Tsoâs chicken and Royal Peking Shrimp. ($12.95) Once again the quantity was over the top! The chicken was very good and the shrimp were excellent!Tasty China House is not your typical local Chinese eateryâ¦ It has a number of entrÃ©es on the menu that you usually only find in big city Chinese restaurants in established areas of town. Here a few examples:Â· Sauteed or Spicy Pork Intestines ($10.95)Â· Cumin Lamb ($18.95)Â· Spicy Stewed Chicken Wings ($12.95)Â· Seasoned Pork Ear and Tongue ($9.95)Â· Preserved Duck Egg with Tofu in Spicy Red Hot Oil ($7.95)Â· Winter Melon with Meat Ball Soup ($9.95)Â· Kung Pao Squid ($12.95)Â· Spicy Dried Sauteed Whole Shelled Shrimp ($13.95)Â· Tapioca Milk Teaâ¦several flavors ($4.75)Â· Spicy Beef Tendon ($10.95)Â· Jelly Fish with Dark Vinegar ($12.95)Â· Braised Duck Necks ($10.95)We would really really like to have this restaurant located anywhere in the area where we live! The value was terrific and it matched the foodâ¦ The variety of choices offered on the menu was both wonderful and intimidating...but weâd love to have the opportunity to be intimidated on a regular basis!
