I invited my mom to this place and I regret picking this place. We had to wait 10 at the door before we got seated, took them 20 minutes to serve us our appetizer and it wasn't even worth the wait. Learned from my mistake

I have to avoid sugar for medical reasons, and I have pretty much given up on Chinese food. I went along because I was with a group and it worked for everyone else. I was super impressed with the fact that on any entree you can request no sugar. There were other things you could request not to have, but... More

They are okay food, but recently had a lot of health violations written up in the paper. So we will probably not be ordering from them again.

When you look at this place from the outside you think this place can't be much, but once you go inside the restaurant is quaint and beautiful. There is no buffet which most Chinese restaurants have resorted to now. The menu has a large variety and they are willing to adapt or create anything you want. Flavors are full and... More

I've passed this restaurant hundreds of times and it seemed so small, and not that busy so I didn't take the chance of trying this place out for years until.. TODAY. The place was super clean, it looks amazing inside. Our waitress Eileen greeted us with a huge smile and took time to actually talk to us and get to... More

We try to dine at the Oriental Restaurant regularly. The House Special Soup was recommended by a co-worker and proved to be an excellent selection. The Mandarin Lo Mein is also a favorite. The wait staff changes occasionally and sometimes not for the better. The restaurant is clean and the food is a very good value! My wife and I... More

This restaurant doesn't open any new doors in the world of American Chinese food, but they offer hot, fresh and tasty cuisine. The service is with a smile, and the price is right in line. We shared the combo appetizer and an entree... Perfect for two people. High marks for the tempura shrimp and pork egg roll. The sauce on... More

Tasty food, very fast and quality service, wish they would serve more vegetables with entrees. But will definitely be back. Very enjoyable.

Every time we're in St. Joe (about once every 2 months) we make it a point to stop at the Oriental Restaurant! The food is fantastic and the people and service are great. We always get the orange chicken and crab Rangoon but I can honestly say I've never had a bad thing there. If you're a fan of pad... More

I halfheartedly agreed to try this place after disappointing meals at two other "Chinese"-American restaurants when we moved to town. To my surprise, the flavors were bright, the textures were right, the service was competent and friendly. The hot and sour soup is actually both hot AND sour, unlike others around the Belt. The ma po tofu is hot and... More
