“Great menu choices, family friendly portions!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

We were happy to find a place still open on a Sunday night, but were even more happy that they had a big menu with lots of options, including healthy vegetarian options, well organized. Service was fast and friendly. Everything tasted great! The entrees are family style and three entrees with soup was plenty for all four of us with a little to spare. We were staying at the hotel next door and ordered delivery the following day. The food was delivered right to our room and the person who delivered it was very kind and offered to bring us anything we needed. If you're in town, on a Sunday night or anytime, I recommend you check them out.

“Just Average, High Calorie food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Value: 3
Customer Service: 3
Food Quality: 3

I had to compare this with the rest of the Chinese Buffets I've been to throughout the US, not compared to other restaurants in Oak Harbor.

This place is "just average". However if you compare this place to other restaurants in Oak Harbor alone.... You will find that this is above the average for Oak Harbor. Nothing fancy, nothing special, just the obvious. A MASS of food to choose from, if you don't care for your CALORIE intake.

“We always love oriental style food, and this did not disappoint”

Clean, lots of choices, well prepared food. Oak Harbor has a lot of GOOD ethnic restaurants, and this is one of them! Go HUNGRY!

“A Treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

On a group trip on motorcycles and we stayed in the adjacent Best Western. It was decided we would go to this restaurant because of its proximity. Initially I wasn't too excited and went along. Well did I ever get a wake up call. The food was excellent. Service was excellent. Value was excellent. We ordered a dinner for 4 which could have easily served 5. Good thing I don't live here as I would be in China City a lot.

“Beautiful Inside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Very pretty restaurant. The interior is decorated very nicely. Located adjacent to the Best Western. The food was fresh and delivered quickly. The fried rice, sesame chicken, and chicken teriyaki were all good.
