Tsao's Cuisine--Best Chinese Food in Dayton Metro Area

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... read 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

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...

Went for a late lunch with family. Really good hot & sour soup, ravs and wonton soup. Twice cooked pork was excellent as well as the crispy chicken and lomein. Service was great. Would go there often if we lived nearby.

Great food and a lunch buffet that fits all needs for oriental food. My wife is oriental and this is one of her favorite places to go. It is owned by a Chinese family and they take pride in providing great food. Located right next to area B at Wright Patterson AFB. And for the people who come to visit... More

We visit here often for the lunch buffet. They put new food out quickly and it actually tastes good. Our kids love it!

I arrived for lunch about 2:15 p.m. on a Wednesday. When I walked in the first thing I noticed was an employee sitting at one of the tables in the dining area, picking the ends off of green beans. Odd, and shouldn't that be done in the back??? The lunch buffet scene was gone, and while the buffet was there,... More
