“Decent Chinese food”
Review of Tong Dynasty - CLOSED

Restaurant details
Reviewed May 16, 2014

The food, while not a large selection, was very good. They have your staple Chinese dishes but not much more variety for a buffet. The service was nice, the waitress made sure to refill my water and stopped occasionally to ask if we needed anything. I will go back next time I'm in Lexington.

A little pricey and the food was just bland. I've eaten there twice to make sure and both times was the same. There are much better places to eat in Lexington.

Not great to eat inside, but the takeout is nicely done for a small town Chinese place. Best in town.

Tong is a very nice buffet style Chinese restaurant. Their prices are very good so it makes returning more frequently much easier if you live in the area. Since this is a smaller town and area, you probably would want to go during normal lunch and dinner times otherwise the food may not be as fresh. That said, they can be very busy on some days, particularly if the local universities have a major event going on.

I like Chinese buffets rather than ordering from the menu because I like to try different things. The Tong's buffet is not huge, but there is still plenty to choose from, much more than at a smaller 'fast food' Chinese place. It includes sushi and even shrimp as well as fried and boiled rice.

It is true that most of the waiters and waitresses do not seem to understand English very well and could be just a bit more attentive, but they are friendly and do a pretty good job. I have been to Tong a few times and will certainly be going again.

We enjoyed our buffet meal at Tong Dynasty on a recent trip to Lexington. There was a good selection on the buffet and everything was fresh and good. I'm a big fan of General Tso's chicken and usually it's dried up on the buffet because it's cooked too long before they put it out there. Not the case here. Sushi was good too!
