Quality Chinese.

Our go to place for Chinese food in the Hamilton Mill/Buford area. A nice sit down restaurant that cares about the quality of its food. The older staff can be brash at times but we just laugh it off because the food is worth it. Never had a bad dish.

Some friends had recommended this place for Asian Cuisine, and we were not disappointed. This restaurant has a very cordial staff and is very clean and comfortable. They have a varied menu as well as a sushi bar. Food portions were more than enough, but not overwhelming. Food came from the kitchen piping hot and presented very well. We had... More

Love their selection of dishes and it is reasonably priced. Always had a great meal here. Sometimes the wait staff is busy so you may have to wait on your check. Worth it.

We have been going here almost weekly for over 6 months and always had good food and service. Beef fried rice, shrimp w/lobster space, and Buddas delight has been our favorites. The sushi is good also, but may have sulfites added as I experienced mild symptoms that I get with sulfites. Also, if you are MSG sensitive- ask for no... More

Been here many times and they are always pleasant and have great food. The sushi is very good also, made fresh in house. It's my number one choice for Chinese food in the area

Family dinner at Oriental J in Buford, GA Saturday night with mother, sister and family. The very best in Chinese and Thai food and great service by our waiter Denny. I especially enjoyed the Thai Spicy Shrimp. You really have to eat here soon. Merry Christmas.

So my son was in the backseat saying he wanted Chinese food. So I asked my husband to try and find a good Thai restaurant and we happened to stumble upon this place. I ordered the chicken masaman curries for us and chicken with vegetables for my son. All were served on steamed rice with the vegetable spring rolls. We... More

This place came on our radar several months ago due to frequent travel in the area. The service is ok but the star is clearly the food. They seem to always have everything hot and freshly prepared. The House fried rice is a staple of mine and the mix is a nice blend of beef, pork, chicken and shrimp. My... More
