Best Chinese in Decatur

To me, all Chinese food is pretty similar. It tastes like it was all made in the same kitchen by the same cook. Not so with the Aloha. Gary and Susan (owners) offer unique Chinese cuisine. It's unlike any other Chinese Food I've had. Try their General Tso' Chicken or their Hunan Chicken. Not... read more

I have eaten at the Aloha restaurant for over 30 years. Their buffet is second to none with a fantastic variety of Asian food. I have never had better tasting General Tso's chicken EVER. They will even make a General Tso's Shrimp, its not on the menu but it is over the top awesome. Lo mein is awesome, Crispy Duck... More

The food quality has become inconsistent. It has become so poor that our family has stopped going. What a sad case, since we have gone for years and spent hundreds if not thousands of dollars in the past. We have made several attempts to speak with owners and staff of inconsistencies and poor quality but nothing has changed, except the... More

We have been going here for 20+ years. Still the same amazing food and staff. We have tried many dishes over the years and have enjoyed them all. As many times as we have visited the food is always consistent and never disappoints. Now that we have children it is one of their favorites as well. You will not find... More

Dropped by here after church for lunch with several friends. Waitress created a large table for our group and seated us immediately. Most of us used the self service buffet, one couple ordered a la carte. They were able to take most of their meal home afterwards in a box. Buffet had wide selection of tradition Chinese items. All were... More

If you want a great family atmosphere and wish to be treated like family, this is the place. We are always well received, whether in person on ordering by phone. We spend so much time and money there, they know our voice over phone and have our "usual" memorized. Great owners, and great staff. Can't say enough about the quality... More

A couple of Sunday evenings ago we were looking for a place to eat in Decatur. After calling several places it looked we were going to have to go with a chain-restaurant or settle for bar food...both of which are okay...just not what we wanted right then. Then we remembered the Aloha was open on Sunday evenings. Off we went!... More

I have been a faithful customer of the Aloha for 24 years. I have tried all the other places in town and none of them are as good. All the dishes are good, but I especially like the Princess Beef- which is a version of Kung Pao, only better. Most of the other Chinese places in Decatur are buffets. They... More
