The Great Wall of China was constructed to keep roving packs of ancient pandas from absconding with the local cuisine. Succeed where the bears failed with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Chinese cuisine at Tian Jin Chinese Restaurant on West 79th Street in Chanhassen.

With seafood, beef, lamb, tofu, pork, duck, chicken, fried rice, chow mein, lo mein, and chow mei fun on Tian Jin Chinese Restaurant's menu, there's a dish to accommodate any and every Chinese food whim. But Mpls.St.Paul Magazine recommends the restaurant for its authentic Mandarin and Sichuan dishes, adventurous appetizers like the homestyle gizzards ($6.95) alongside house specialties. Sichuan specialty ma po tofu wraps vegetarian tongues in a savory bean-curd embrace ($9.95), and cumin lamb is a succulent medley of the titular meat, fresh bell peppers, and onions in an earthy sauce ($14.95). Alternately, take a dive in the tastes of the ocean with a chrysanthemum-shaped filet of sole in tomato sauce ($13.95). The Groupon can also be applied toward the weekly brunch buffet on Saturdays and Sundays ($11.95/person), which compiles dim sum, fresh Chinese fried bread sticks, dumplings, and various entrees.

No matter which dish customers request, they’re bound to discover a wealth of unexpected Chinese flavors that haven't yet danced with their taste buds or serenaded their incisors with John Fogerty lyrics; Heavy Table says Tian Jin "is doing some remarkable things with the food that sheds real light on how it’s meant to taste."
