We always try and visit our friends at Rainbow every month or so. The setting is wonderful for a nice date night meal. It even has a bar and hotel attached if the moment is right or you have had a few too many drinks. The food is the best Chinese I've ever had with a huge menu offering something... More

The food is fantastic but the service is HORRIBLE. The owner of this restaurant is very rude and I honestly have no idea how they are still open. (I guess because the food is good...) You are much better off ordering to-go

We tried this restaurant while staying at the hotel it is attached to. Normally hotel food is a disappointment, but not this time. The staff was welcoming and provided excellent service. We played it safe and tried two of the fried rice entree's with chicken and seafood. They were both fabulous. The chicken, shrimp and squid were perfectly cooked. The... More

We ordered Garlic Stir Fry-shrimp, Singapore Noodles, and General Tso's Chicken for take out. The staff were friendly and professional, and the order was ready very quickly. The chicken was very good. The rest was average.

It's located in a Best Western Lobby. This doesn't really give you overwhelming hope for good food. BUT, fear not... it's our favorite Asian restaurant in the area. They cover the range of Asian food pretty well. From Thai to Chinese to Japanese. A pretty large menu, really. My favorites are the fried dumplings, the Pad Thai, the Thai iced... More

Slow and unattentive service. General Tso's chicken was made with white meat. It should be made from chicken thighs because dark meat doesn't dry put as easily as white meat. Will definately not be going back.

I and a colleague visited this establishment while on business to Johnson City. In fact, we were staying at the hotel connected to the restaurant. I read the reviews on TA and we decided to give it a try. Our waitress was horrible. She was blatantly rude to us. When we asked about drinks, she merely pointed to a list... More

Driven past this location countless times and always thought to myself "how good could a restaurant attached to a hotel really be?" Visited Rainbow Asian Cuisine on Saturday for a party and was blown away by the quality of the food. VERY delicious. Entrees portions are a full dinner plate served with a an entire bowl-portion of rice. Prices were... More
