Good food, very pricey

We had a mix of Japanese and Chinese food. The rolls and nigiri were nicely done as was the agadashi tofu, although the pieces are a bit large. Sweet & sour was tasty as were the noodles. We ordered medium hot spice on a couple Szechuan dishes and did not find them overly spicy. Prices average... read more

This is one of my favourites as you can choose Japanese or Chinese cuisine. I love the Chinese combo. I also like the tatami rooms for your own little private party! but this does mean that you have to sit on the floor.

Had my first return trip to here in 15 years. The variety of Chinese and Japanese cuisine was very refreshing. Food was fresh and hot, some unique items that we enjoyed. Had a group of us and the small rooms around the outside of the room was great to both meet and socialize.

We chose Oriental Gardens because wanted a meal that was lighter fare, full of vegetables, and close to our hotel. The service was prompt and the menu extensive covering several cultures. The food was acceptable and the prices were fair. I'm not sure I would choose it again since there are many choices in Kamloops but it suited us very... More

Food is average, but the ambiance for a Chinese-Japanese restaurant is pleasant at least comparatively for Kamloops, and they have a lot of space/seating. I found it convenient for late evening dinners when I'm hosting guests. I felt their service was quite good overall, and appreciate the friendliness of the servers.

Nice staff, food excellent. Menu is huge as they offer Chinese & Japanese. Everything we ordered was lovely. BUT... the portions are huge! We didn't realise and ordered far too much (I wish they would have told us how large the plates are!) Especially like the chicken with cashew nuts! Recommended

My husband and I had our wedding dinner here 41 years ago and decided to have a trip down memory lane. As they say, you can never go back 😉. We ordered teriyaki chicken and some tempura. The food was fine but not outstanding in any way. Service was excellent however. The restaurant was very busy and filled with tables... More
