When it comes to dim sum, here's a general rule: The best tiny tea snacks are served in the biggest rooms. In the Twin Cities, that means you head to Jun Bo, which seats about 400 people, where the crowds are as abundant as the dim sum assortment. Located in a former Chi-Chi's on I-494, everything at Jun Bo is red, from the bright-colored walls to the patterned carpet to the hostesses' crimson silk dresses. With a giant golden dragon and phoenix on the wall, the effect is something like an Asian Las Vegas. Dim sum is available from mid-morning to 11 p.m., and during peak times, servers circulate the room with more than 80 varieties of dim sum stacked neatly onto carts. That means shrimp dumplings, steamed pork buns, sesame-laced greens, fried taro cakes, and pristine white blocks of coconut milk gelatin. The offerings are as authentic as any you'd find in a world-class Chinatown, from the silken tofu dessert served with a sweet, clear syrup, to the chicken and duck feet. An average tab runs less than $15 a person, tax and gratuity included—a sure sign that it's the real deal.

The food was ABSOLUTELY AWFUL! The rice paper in which the dimsum is enveloped in is unappetizing. Way too thick & oddly was fragile. Definately overpriced. I recommend Yangtze River in St. Louis Park or Mandarin Kitchen in Bloomington. Don't waste your time and money. (I'm asian if that helps any)

Jun Bo is terrific. Only authentic Chinese food in the TC area.

this is the worst place ever!!!! the food is horrible, the service is non existant, and it is incredibly overpriced. if you want dim sum i'm sure you'll have no problem since it seems that is the only thing they actually serve. they will push it on you within seconds of sitting down, but if you don't want the dim sum you might as well leave because they will never come back to your table. don't even bother asking for a menu because they are apparently only for show. they only serve food off carts they push around the dining room and even those dishes have probably been sitting around for hours. after realizing the menu was a joke, we tried the cart food. it's cold and is the worst food i have ever put in my mouth. i'd rather eat cat food. so that's my two cents. take it or leave it.
