Food was great. Price at lunch was to cheap. Hope they don't change it though. Two adults with drinks and only $14.65. Food to box and take home .

“Little hard to find place that's well worth trying!”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

I used to visit this place often when I worked nearby, but now that I'm not, don't get the chance to visit it nearly as often as I'd like! This place can be a little tricky to find, even though not really hidden. I've almost driven by it several times because it sits back off the main road a little and the paint scheme and sign are not real visible or noticable when you are driving, However, I've not only eaten there a lot in the past, but have probably had 90% of the dishes on thier lunch menu (Best time to go), and the food has always been great! The dishes are always fresm hot, and full of flavor! And even though they have a lunch special menu (& prices) it is often necessary to carry some home because of the portions! I honestly feel they have some of the very best and Top flavored Eggdrop & Hot & Sour soup in the Indianapolis area! And if it were not for the really great main dishes... I could very much go for a huge bowl of both for my meal instead! I've been to hundreds of Asian places to eat & have also spent 8 years in the Far East (Asia - etc) and they indeed can compete with such, especially in comparison to so many others in Indiana. Prices are very reasonable for what you get in portion size, and hey! Who cares when you also get fantastic flavors and nothing bland on your plate! Oh! If the dish says "Hot", you can bet it'll be spicey! Yumm! Service is always friendly and fast, and you don't have to wait long for your main dish after finsihing up the Soup! The Oriental Chips are fresh made there everyday,and the Green Tea is really great! If you like Asian food (primarily Chinese), you indeed need to visit this place! I can't believe it has not been rated in the top 20 Asian places in Indianapolis to go! Not a Fast food joint... and a very comfortable & relaxing atmosphere!

“Regular visits will be in order!”
Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

After having spent a good amount of time being spoiled by chinese food in the San Francisco Bay Area, Oriental Inn was a great find here in Indianapolis. I can honestly say that there is nothing else in Indy that comes close to Bay Area quality and authenticity. Sure they have the Americanized stuff, but for example try the hot and sour soup. Clearly they are using the traditional types of mushrooms, etc. We're regulars, and I'll bet you'll be too.

“Best Crab Rangoon in town!”
Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

My family and I have been going here since I was a grade schooler. I've eaten at a lot of Chinese restaurants in Indianapolis and beyond. Oriental Inn offers the best Chinese food in town. No other Chinese restaurant can compare. Their crab rangoon reigns supreme as the creamiest, tastiest EVER!

They have both Chinese and Korean menu items. If you have craving for good jajangmyeon, this is the place for you. Hidden gem in Indianapolis. Friendly....good for family.
