Better than the last time

Previously, we were disappointed in both the buffet food and the overall decor. This time, the food was better. The variety and flavor was better. Sadly, there wasn't enough of it set out on the buffet tables. There were several empty or nearly empty serving trays. There seemed to be only one... read more

Oriental Jade has been around since 1978 on the perimeter of the Bangor Mall. An independent restaurant in a sea of chain restaurants, the Oriental Jade I believes tries harder to make their dining experience a bit better than the chains. I usually get to the restaurant once a year and I've found it to be consistent. I've never ordered... More

The duck stir-fry with vegetables was the best! The duck was cooked just right and the veggies were cooked to perfection. Portion was very generous. Will definitely order this again.

I have always been a huge chinese food lover, and since moving into Maine I have always travel around to find a good place to eat, and on the outside this place is impressive but the food is not really good, I wonder if buffet was a bad choice but either way, the food was ok

I got to the restaurant and explained to the young woman at the front desk that I only had 30 minutes because I had a night class that I was teaching, and as the instructor I cannot be late. She assured me that my order should take no more than 5 minutes because it was after all just a bowl... More

Ate here with family while on vacation. The buffet had a large selection, but the food was awful. Service was okay... the servers and hostess seemed very friendly. Unfortunately, I would not recommend and will not be going back.

This is a great buffet with a little bit of something for everyone. Lunch is just as good as dinner and is a little cheaper.

Been going here for years. I do not get the buffet. Not into the all you can eat. I sit in the Sampan Grill area and order off the menu. Great ambience. Try the crab ragoons, the pad thai, the wonton soup, the pinapple chicken rice.
