this is a small resteraunt in the corner of a bigger building. When we went in to order our food the place was quiet which made us a little leary until we returned twenty minutes later to pick it up. The place was packed. It seems that the locals know enough to call in there order for pickup. The food... More

Driving through from Alberta to Ontario I have to say we were loving this little place. We stopped for gas and I checked trip advisor to see what was around and found this little gem. When we arrived every table was taken except one. Their prices were beyond decent. I believe we paid 7$ a person and the portion sizes... More

There's a reason this place is so busy...it has fantastic food! Both the Chinese and Vietnamese dishes were excellent! Very generous servings. It's so busy with both dine in and take out clients, the wait staff is worked off their feet. But they're friendly and very efficient. Good value and excellent food! Yum!

A regular customer here as it is exceptional in quality. Generally do take out but they have several tables for eating in. It is extremely busy on certain days so best to order take out ahead. Very friendly staff who regularly have collections of items for the food bank, shelter, etc. Nice to see community mindedness in the retail industry.

Good oriental food, probably the best in Thunder Bay. They are far too busy and not enough staff on to accommodate take out and dine in. I usually take out as the restaurant is small, this time my take out order was 40 minutes late from the pick up time. I won't visit here again until the wait is acknowledged... More

We have eaten here many times all the combo meals but what stands out the most is their Singapore rice noodles....The best one We have had from Winnipeg to Toronto. We love asian food so have tasted many. Give it a try. The girl who always serves us is such an energetic and fun girl.

One of my favourite places. Eaten here a thousand times, never disappointed. Shanghai noodle, pho and the noodle bowl are all must eat

When we are craving noodle bowls, Oriental Garden is our first choice! Their other options are also excellent, but this is one of our go-to meals. Make sure you order before 6 pm, they often sell out of their Noodle Bowl!
