I really hate leaving bad reviews, but I have to for this place. My husband and I got sushi and it was gross. The service was terrible, we waited 45 minutes for only a few maki rolls and when they came they all smelled terribly fishy! I asked for gluten free soy sauce, and they said they had spilled the...

We liked the Wings and Beer special watching the Red Sox on a rainy night. The owner and bartender gave us some other places to eat and drink during our stay.

We were in the area on motor cycle week and decided to go out to eat. We drove by this place and were horrified to see teenage girls in bathing suits and signs luring people in. After a young shirtless man frantically flagged us into the parking lot we were all too scared to get out of the car. The... More

Great Food and Great Service. I recommend this place to everyone. I like the fact that all of the dishes are prepared individually and are cooked to order, No Chinese Buffet in this Restaurant, it's all gourmet dishes. Plenty of parking and seating. Clean and modern. The Million dollar renovation completed a few years ago still shows like new.

The restaurant is clean and family friendly on the front side with a large bar (drinks are generous-try the MaiTai, I did mmmmm, it's a speciality), TV, music,... More

I lived in the Lakes region when I was younger and moved away after college. Me and a few buddies decided to come up and I noticed the name of restaurant changes from Oriental Gardens to China Bistro so my friends and I wanted to check it out. They really cleaned up in there. Nice decor and even the bathrooms... More

Now I know why there are never many cars in the parking lot. This is the worst place in the world for Chinese food. Buffet bar is not the least bit eye appealing. Food that should be hot is cold, food that should be cold is hot. Also ordered off the the menu and nothing was edible. Place is also... More

I have been coming to this place since the eighties. The same owner since 1984 - Imagine fresh made food - nothing from steam trays. I just love their Crab Rangoon and YoungChow fried rice. I suggest you try their General guo’s chicken and spring rolls. GOTTA HAVE THEM! A favorite of my Husband is the Walnut Shrimp, the Savory... More
