Yummy

I decided to get all appetizers and soup. Egg rolls were just ok. Potstickers were amazing. I had sizzling chicken soup and it was so good I can't wait to go back. It was delicious. Have seen this place for years but never stopped in. I will be back soon.

This is my first TripAdvisor Restaurant Review, but I believe Onion Restaurant is very deserving up a big thumbs up! My family and I have been going there for several years, and have never had a negative experience of any kind! We often take friends with us, and have had groups of 8 at several times. The staff is kind,... More

Quirky and kitschy, flavorful and not bland, great service and inexpensive; the Onion has it all. I had lunch there yesterday. For $6.50 I had egg drop soup with dried noodles, Mongolian Beef, rice, and an egg roll! You can even get a nasty combo at McDonalds for that! I also ordered the Crab Rangoon. They were all good as... More

Great food, clean restaurant and friendly staff, would recommend to anyone. The prices are very good and the best Oriental restaurant in all of Indiana.

So trying something new and different we came to the Onion Restaurant and Tea House. Food was not bad, but my taste buds just told me that this was no different than any other take with a fortune cookie. Service was good, and was seated and served in a quick and timely manner. Nothing bad to say about the place... More

My daughter suggested we go to this restaurant while we were visiting in New Albany. We are glad we did. The service was friendly and fast, our food arrived quickly. I had the "Flaming General Tso's Chicken". It came in a tray with a fire under it. It was sizzling. Fried rice, soup, and an egg roll came with the... More

This restaurant has made good use of a building that used to be a family house. There are several rooms of tables, but none too large or too small. The food was good, and the atmosphere nice. Excellent service, too. Prices were like the rooms - not too expensive, but not cheap. When the server found out we were celebrating... More

I have been eating here since they opened and have not had one bad experience ever. It can look empty because the parking is in the rear. It is a quirky and charming little place that serves great Asian food. (I think the best on this side of the river.) The owners and staff are always friendly and the food... More

I love this place. It is definitely one of our favorite restaurants. Food is always hot and delicious and I think they have the best egg rolls. Never had a bad experience here. I highly recommend this place.

My wife and I love Asian food. Having said that we do not particularly life Asian buffets. The food sits out for hours and usually consists of processed and/or frozen foods only. These restaurants are usually more for quantity than quality. Even when you try to order a single item they just take it off the buffet and throw it... More
