I had lunch here before shopping at the nearby grocery store. Lunch Buffet including tax costs $6.00, a drink would be extra. This restaurant offers both a buffet and a very extensive menu and does a brisk carry-out business. The buffet has several entree dishes including some very good Black Pepper Chicken, plus traditional main dishes including beef with broccoli,... More

This is a typical hole-in-the-wall Chinese Buffet with carry-out available too. They have one hot bar with several chicken dishes, plus at least one beef and one pork for lunch time, and a seafood option for dinner. Lunch is $5.45, so with tax your total bill is $6. That's hard to beat anywhere for an all-you-can-eat buffet. The menu for... More

The true hidden gem of Oak Ridge when it comes... More

This is an ok place nothing special here, good price, good food. Nothing more to say about it . The people are not friendly at all. But they get it done.

Not sure where the other people reviewing have been eating but China Wok is great! Also note, the picture above is incorrect. I have been ordering from China Wok for 5 years and this has never been their storefront. This is a small, family owned restaurant. The food is always hot and flavorful when picked up on time, which if... More

The food was cold. The pork was fat and the crab Rangoon was old and cold. Not the best way to have dinner with your wife. We will not go back!!

made from an old trolly car, this has been an Oak Ridge staple since the early years. The food is great here, there is limited seating, but they have take out. A don't miss in the Atomic City.

We went last night, having not been in a long while. Except for the loud kid sitting nearby, we really enjoyed our meal, and our selves. While the buffet has a relatively-few number of items, they selection is pretty good. We drank water. With tax, our two buffets cost less than $14. Pretty decent bathrooms -- always a positive sign.
