Good food and nice staff

We really liked the staff here - very friendly and making sure that we had everything we needed. Food was good - not quite as spicy as I might have wanted but probably right for the area. Prices were reasonable and my glass of plum wine was enormous. All in all, a good family dinner for us... read more

They have my absolute favorite dish (Pad See Yew) in town, and my teen daughters LOVE their sushi. But we rarely get take out or go there because they don't have enough front-of-house staff. Multiple times there were only two people who were doing ALL of the following: rolling sushi, waiting tables, handling cash register for BOTH dine-in and take-out.... More

I had not eaten Chinese in Scottsbluff for over 2 years and was looking for the one with the buffet I had eaten at last but it was no longer there. I saw the Oriental House about a block away and decided to try it. When I walked in the first thing I noticed was that the restaurant was exceptionally... More

Food portions were large but food was very average. The lunch special did come with tea which was nice. Service was ok but the place could use some major cleaning

We tried several Chinese restaurants while we were there and this is definitely the best. A rare find in such a rural area.

I've really enjoyed eating at this restaurant since I've been in the Scottsbluff area. You can get Chinese, Thai, and Sushi - your choice. So far I've focused on the Thai and Sushi menus and look forward to trying more items. The dining room is pleasant and the waitstaff professionally efficient.

I love the rounded dragon entryway and the decor that is so enthusiastically Asian. Their food is very good, the service is prompt and polite and it's a favorite for this local.

I agree that great sushi is a surprise out here on the plains. My salmon nigiri sushi and shrimp tempura rolls have always been fresh and delicious. Happy Family is a favorite and the vegetables are perfectly crisp, not cooked to death, and they aren't stingy on the meats and seafood. Great dish. Share the Pu Pu platter, it's ample... More

A friend recommended this restaurant for their Sushi and was spot on for the single plate I had. It was excellent. I tried a Thai dish called (Bai phat Ka Pow) with pork and thought it was horrible. My wife is Thai, and I lived in Thailand for 10 years. Her fish entree (Chinese) was not quite as bad, but... More
