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.

The atmosphere isn't great but don't let that put you off. We have tried quite a few menu items and they range from good to great. My youngest daughter loves their California rolls. I pretty much stopped exploring the menu after trying the Firecracker Chicken. It's super spicy, sweet, and salty all at once, and it is loaded with chicken,... More

The food wasn't even good. It tasted like frozen food & canned. There wasn't any big flavors. The service was alittle slow. the tea tasted like Lipton green tea. So if it's a Tea House, would you have different kinds of teas? It wasn't something I would come back for or bring any of my friends to eat.

We ate here with friends for a special occasion. The food was freshly prepared, and the appetizers on the poo-poo platter were a meal in and of themselves. Great hot and sour soup. The folks who run this place are always friendly. This time was no exception. Our food and drinks were delivered quickly and with a smile. Prices are... More
