We eaten here for lunch and dinner. Both are good but the lunch buffet is a great way to try a number of dishes for one price. Everything is fresh and very tasty. The salted shrimp are fabulous!

We like Tsao's buffet, but ordering from the menu is always excellent. The portions are large enough to share. Orange Beef is one of our favorites and is always fresh and delicious. They will make as mild or hot as you wish.

Tired of the greasy foods at your typical Chinese buffet? Try Tsao's lunch buffet. Best Chinese food I have eaten in at least 10 states. Rock pepper shrimp is awesome and probably the most popular item on the buffet. The hot and sour soup is the best ever, and on Thursdays they have a potato and sausage soup that is... More

If you are looking for a quick lunch of terrific Chinese food - here's your place! This is a small restaurant in a small strip mall. Easily accessible from Area B Wright-Patterson AFB. I've dined here numerous times during lunch and its always very busy and sometimes you are forced to share a table with strangers (if you dine-in). During... More

I have been to Tsao's many times for the lunch buffet. It is much smaller then down the street on Woodman. I find that when they are on full lunch rush this means the food is fresher. They serve jalepeno salted shrimp and fried fish on the buffet which I also like. I don't recommend the egg-drop soup as they... More

After eating at most of the Chinese Restaurant's in the area, my favorite has to be Tsao's. The service is good and the food is excellent. I especially like their General's Chicken; I get it with all-white meat (an extra $1) and no breading to cut down on the calories. I have eaten at the restaurant once a week for... More

Very close to base. Good value for the money. We like the variety...they have soups, egg roles, seafood, meats, tofu and even tea included. Lots of seating available and even a room (glass walls so not super private but serves its purpose if you have a large group). Friendly staff and always nice to my kids. We love the lunch... More

If you are looking for good food at a great value, please go to this place. There are many items on the lunch buffet to choose from...the egg drop soup is outstanding. You won't regret it!

Chinese food with much of it with some heat. My favorite item is fried fish with orange sauce. New items are on buffet at times, in addition to usual Chinese fare of egg rolls, rice, three types of soup--egg drop soup is different as corn is added, green beans, etc. Because of location many patrons are Air Force or university...
