I went in to place a "to-go" order. While waiting I heard a small child crying. He came out of the bathroom and it was obvious he was the child of the owners as he had a table full of toys. He cried all the way to the table then sat down and busied himself. A few minutes later the... More

Very good high quality food, quiet dining atmosphere, white linen table clothes. It is one of my favorite places for Asian food.

The is a typical family-run Chinese restaurant- where if you go to lunch late, the family is gathered around a table sharing large bowls of food that doesn't appear on the menu. I like their $6.75 lunch. You can choose one of three soups- or a salad. One of three appetizers- or an egg foo young pattie. Next, you choose... More

This place has been consistent for years. A very busy lunch crowd and always friendly staff. The best Hot and Sour Soup in the area or anywhere I have ordered it. They have great lo-mein dishes and the most-ordered dish: Sesame Chicken. Try here for a cheap but delicious lunch.

Recently visited here with friends who live in Hastings and have always raved about the food here. They will drive the 30 minutes from where they live to eat here and used to drive over an hour when they lived further away in Red Wing. My friend and husband are both Chinese food snobs but if they are both happy... More

They even make the chicken extra spicy for me. I love the egg rolls and friefld rice as well! The pricing is amazingly cheap for the... More

Stopped in for lunch with coworker. Kind of frozen in time and I was worried when I ordered the sesame chicken. It was very good with excellent flavor. Great price for lunch at only $6.50. I'll come back again.

I am the first to give props to a restaurant for good food and service. I wish I could say better things about the Willow Gate. We have been going there for years, like 15 years, I'd say. The last 5 times I have gone, I have experienced increasingly bad food/service/cleanliness. This time, I'm afraid it's over. My son and... More

The mango sweet rice dessert is the best, but it is not always available. Try it if you can. The appetizers you should try are Beef on Stick, Fried Pot Stickers, and Sesame Fried Cheese Wontons. For entree, try either Sesame Chicken, Kung Pao Beef, or Pad Thai. Ask for spicy or not spicy depending on your preference. Friendly service,... More
