Chinese Szechuan restaurant in Golden Valley - Plymouth. Located in a building of eateries and shops plopped into a parking lot across from a movie theater and hidden away in an office and apartment area down from General Mills and Betty Crocker Dr. - sits one of the best Chinese restaurants in the Twin Cities. The interior makes you quickly forget what you saw when parking the car - the decor and atmosphere is understated with eye pleasing color, layout and murals. Better to go early or late for dinner because of the waits. There are two menus - the more Americanized one with familiar dishes - standard seasoning and spice levels - and the Szechuan menu with items that a devotee of Szechuan food would be familiar with - tending to have more nuanced seasonings and spice levels. Go with the Szechuan menu - it's what makes this place zing and distinguishes it from the standard Chinese restaurant.
