If you don't want to eat in a gas station -- Sally's Kitchen -- this is probably one of the better Chinese restaurants in Fort Collins. Place was empty on Presidents' Day evening at 7PM. Waiter and manager (owner?) were very solicitous. Best hot and sour soup in Fort Collins since South China closed. Other dishes came right from kitchen... More

My husband and I ordered the Family 2 meal: fried rice, egg rolls, sesame chicken, spicy Szechuan noodles with chicken, hot and sour soup and egg drop soup. First of all the fried rice was the worst fried rice I've ever seen. It was basically very dry rice and soy sauce. No onions, no carrots, no peas, nothing but dry... More

I come here for lunch probably once a week and I've never ordered anything I didn't like. The food is consistently good, the owner is friendly, the atmosphere is pleasant, the prices are reasonable and the portions are just right--enough to fill you up but no leftovers.

We went here with our daughter and her friends. We tried to get in the Thai resturant next door but it was jammed. This place was empty except for us and one other table. Three of us had the sesame chicken and it was too much for all three of us, we should have shared the entree. We also had... More

Tiger Lily is the only Chinese restaurant that we go to. The food is always fantastic and the service is great. Very friendly owners.

We found this place by chance and were pleased we did. It is in a strip mall near the CSU Campus on the Western side of Ft. Collins. It is not fancy, but the food was good. We found on the menu the dinner special for two people for $25. We ordered two different meals and got soups and eggrolls.... More

Affordable, yet they use the BETTER higher cost ingredients to assure better flavor and health, such as only breast of chicken, local untreated vegetables, low-sodium soy, canola oil, NO MSG or artificial food coloring, fresh spices that can easily be customized for your tastes. Uses a golden light batter for deep frying, made from 40% natural whole wheat, oat flour,... More

We've been eating both eat in and take out from Tiger Lilly since they opened and it's always fresh, hot and very tasty. It's not the cheapest Chinese in Fort Collins but the prices are very fair for the quality of ingredients and portion sizes. I grew up on home cooked Chinese, have visited China and ate Chinese takeout at... More

Stumbled across this restaurant on a walk down Elizabeth St. and am glad I did. The unassuming/underwhelming exterior and interior belie the exceptionally delicious food that I had inside. I ordered the Sesame chicken and Mongolian combo with multi-grain rice. The sesame chicken was amazing- the crunchy texture, moist white-meat chicken, and tasty sauce made this one of the best...

The food here is NOT GOOD. The food has heavy, thick brown gravy with bland flavor. There were no crispy vegetables, color or healthy qualities to the dishes. The egg rolls were bland, limp, cold and expensive. The service was very slow and then the food came to the table cold. The white rice was poorly prepared, sticky, undercooked and... More
