Authentic Szechuan cuisine with clearly marked vegetarian options

This is a branch of a local chain, but the menu at this particular location marks all of the vegetarian items clearly on the menu. Most of these items are vegan or can be made vegan by omitting eggs. There is a fairly large selection of dishes, including some dishes that cannot be found at other local Chinese restaurants, and of course a large number of spicy Szechuan specialties.

The servers are helpful in checking on what ingredients are in each dish.

They offer a buffet on weekends but it does not have many vegetarian options. The regular menu items are also available during this time.

This restaurant is very popular with students and gets quite busy on the weekends, especially for the brunch.

This has quickly become one of my favorite Chinese restaurants in the Twin Cities. They have a great selection of vegan options and they are happy to answer questions about what's in the food. Some of my favorite dishes include the Scalded Chili Noodles, the Pea Tips, Triple Vegetables, and Tofu with Pickled Pepper.

The service is excellent. On a recent visit, they accidentally served us Ma Po Tofu with pork in it (our porkless one went to another table). The server checked when we asked, then the manager came over, apologized, and comped us the dish and a dessert. I really appreciated their dedication to customer service.

This restaurant shares a parking lot with the Days Hotel on University Ave. Some of the parking in the lot is allocated for the restaurant, but pay attention to the signs and don't park in the hotel parking spaces. There is also street parking nearby if the lot is full.
