We have been living nearby for years, but never tried this spot until Payne ave started to come around. We are so glad we did. This is the perfect Chinese take out spot. The food is very reasonably priced and the portions are HUGE. There...More

I've been going to this place since 1957! First of all, don't expect ANY atmosphere. Secondly, prices are fair and comparable to other restaurants in the area. The location of this restaurant is iffy. "Lower East Side", plenty of crime for everyone. When they say...More

Glad to see Sui Yep back in business. It's back to being a sit-down restaurant instead of the take-out only that it was for quite a few years. They still make their own chow mein noodles too!

I like to stop every time I am in St. Paul. Not fancy but great Chinese take out. Ingredients are always fresh. It has been an East Side fixture not because it is fancy but because it is good.
