Great dine-in experience, excellent food.

I was recently in Saint Joseph for business and had the opportunity to try this restaurant. I am not normally a fan of Chinese cuisine. As in, I don't eat it at all. (Long story) Anyway, my co-worker was really craving it, so I acquiesced and we chose this location. The atmosphere was pleasant. It... read more

Lackluster food. Place was clean and the waitress was very friendly. None of that made up for the poor quality of food. The local HyVee grocery store restaurant has better Chinese food on the buffet. They definitely need to figure out how to do better.

If I could leave a negative 5 star I would. We have been going to Oriental for many many years and have always enjoyed the food. However the disgusting things have gone on too long and it is definitely time to complain and say something about our experience. Keep in mind, I do understand that things happen in a great... More

HORRIBLE DELIVERY SERVICE!!! My order was placed at 10:36 AM and confirmed to be delivered at 11:21 AM. By 12:05 PM, I still had not received my order. I called to cancel and to have my order of nearly 40 bucks refunded. The manager was not in the least apologetic. Instead, she was rude and argumentative. I simply wanted my... More

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
