“Best In Town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2013

If you ever heard someone saying this restraunt is bad or worst service, don't listen to that! That's all lie! They never been mean! They are very nice. If you don't believe me, just go there and try it! It's the best restraunt ever! Never go to House of Hong! They had the worst service ever!
Oreint Buffet is nice, and if you ever had a questions or something you want to tell them, they always listen to you. They smiles mostly everytime! Loves that!

“Worst service ever”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2013

I came here with my husband for lunch while traveling in Watkins Glen, it was a truly terrible dining experience, even by $7 buffet standards. My husband elected to go with the buffet, while ordered off the menu. While I was waiting for my meal I ate half of a spring roll off of his plate...well it was all downhill from there! The server came over and angrily informed me that since we had not both paid for the buffet that I would have to pay for the spring roll that I ate. Fine - I thought it was silly but I really didn't mind. The entire tone of the service changed after this. Not only did our server become incredibly rude, but she also loudly spoke about us to the other server, repeatedly speaking in Cantonese but saying "spring roll" in English and gesturing to the table, it was truly ridiculous, as if we had intended to steal from them! On top of all this, after eating here I got a horrible case of food poisoning. I would never recommend this place and would never go back. If you are looking for delicious Chinese food in Watkins Glen go to Hongs Palace - the food there is amazingly delicious and the service was top notch!

“Best Chinese Buffet I've ever had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2013

Even though it is small, the service was superb and the food was excellent. I'm so glad we went! The food was fresh. Even though we didn't have it, the hibachi grill looked and smelled good.

“Chinese buffet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2013

I really want to like this place more. It is run by a young mother. her children are often there doing their homework and they are adorable. The food variety and quality is excellent, but the are suffering from lack of business. It is usually almost empty when we go in and so the buffet is sparsely stocked. they quickly start cooking more and putting it out, but often we are done our meal by then or you are eating piecemeal. I understand their situation, not wanting to waste food if no one is there, but..... I wish they were busier, because I really like their food, but am a little frustrated most times that I go. Maybe I'll try the take out!
