well it is a chinese or japense resturant ( i think chinese) there was lots of personal decorations that belonged to the owner sitting around in there and their grocery bags and groceries made us think they lived there in the resturant, a chinese lady who ran it her baby named chloe or something like that about 16 months old...

I ate lunch at The Onion. I had miso soup and sushi. They were both good. The outside of the place looks questionable, but it really is good food. The people are really friendly as well. I'll go back for sure.

My wife suggested that we eat out for lunch on a recent shopping trip and mentioned that Chinese food sounded good--I agreed. We have driven by the Onion for years and have mentioned on several occasions that we needed to try it. Well, yesterday was the day and, boy, were we glad we did. It's nothing fancy but the food...

It's a strange place but the food was extremely good. I ordered the General Tsao chicken lunch special. At $9.60 I thought it was priced well.

This was one of the best dishes of General Tso I have ever had. It was very flavorful, crispy on the outside and soft on inside. The rice was well cooked and the egg roll was perfect. I was blown away at how great it tasted. The hostess was fantastic and talked to me the entire time while I waited... More

The food was good. The presentation was good. The value was good. The awkward part? Everything. Finding the place and then navigating to it. Our server was well-intentioned and intent on providing good service but clearly lacked training specific to this restaurant. Every question about the menu required a trip to talk to someone in the kitchen. The "vegetarian" menu... More

This family run establishment is really great. The portions are hearty. The food is freshly prepared and the price is right. Try their fruit teas for a real treat.

I don't even live close to New Albany, but if I am in the area. I have to visit The Onion. There are so many great things to rave about this place. Be warned it is a difficult to find the right road to get to it. Turn off at the realty office and car wash and follow the road... More

This is one of my daughters favorite restaurants. They servings are big and very tasty and fairly low cost. If you come during lunch time, the lunch special is your choice of either egg drop or hot and sour soup, an egg roll and an entree for $5.95. Service is usually pretty quick and the food is always hot. If... More

This is just a little family place. We definitely found our visit to be enjoyable. The food was excellent and I love the variety of teas they offer. We had the hibiscus flower tea. If you like the little mom and pop places instead of the big corporate chain restaurants, you should stop and check this one out.
