“Very good food. Wonderful waiter! ”
Reviewed 23 June 2014 via mobile

I have eaten here every trip to Seward for years. We were a little hesitant this time because it was dinner time and no cars. We went anyway and SO glad we did! The food is fresh and well prepared and quite tasty. The prices are very low for AK. A lot of food for your buck! The waiter, brother of the owner, both Korean was a trip! He entertained us with origami, magic tricks, and his funny personality! Friendly and fun! The service was excellent too. We had a family dinner for 4 and all had lunch the next day too. Only $13.95 pp.
Best bargain in Seward!

“Excellent food”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

In Seward for one night, two days. This restaurant was close to our hotel, Best Western, in walking distance. Food was great. Not too many people eating there. Only one other table. The waiter did his "magic tricks", origami, spinning trays, & fixed our chop sticks so we could use them a little easier. We went for dinner and there was no buffet. The buffet is only at lunch time. I would recommend this place.

“Delicious food, excellent value”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

After hiking and touring in Seward, we found delicious Asian food, large portions at moderate prices at Oriental Gardens. During tourist season, it is particularly challenging to eat a satisfying meal at a good value. The owner was very gracious and entertained us by making different origami animals and the Starship Enterprise, which he gave us to take home. It is centrally located across from the fire station.

“Best lower-priced place in Seward...”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

Seward has many restaurants and mostly all of them will cost at least $45-50 for two people to eat. Oriental Garden had cheaper prices, good food, excellent service, and a good atmosphere. When I come into town again I will definitely be coming back here.

“Good food and service but......”
Reviewed 24 January 2014 via mobile

Its local family owned, I like the food and the service has always been very attentive, but with two guys running the place it is definitely missing a lot of detailing.
Off times should always be spent doing those extra cleaning jobs in this place is certainly lacking that. Upon closer inspection this restaurant is so filthy I just don't think I can eat here again.
Best egg drop soup and kimchi!
