We've been coming here several times a month for over 5 years. Why? 1. The restaurant is very clean. 2. The food is consistently good classic Chinese American food and the service is always great too. 3. They are kind people--to kids, families and grumpy...adults. 4. Our order is always correct.More

Tried this for the first time with friends in the area. The service was great, but the food was your typical "Americanized" Chinese. The presentation was great, but it lacked flavor (could have just been the dish I ordered).

A friend and I met for an early lunch. The place is very clean and tasty. The atmosphere was relaxed, and the service was excellent.

Excellent service. Fast service and very good quality food. Not oily. Food prices were extremely fair. The restaurant is clean and bright. Good choice for a family outing or even a business meeting for lunch Will eat here again.

We've been to Oriental J five or six times since moving to Buford a couple years ago. Prior service and quality has always been better than average. We've even been with a neighborhood group of 15+ people and things went well. The service is typically...good and the food has been too. That all ended this past Valentine's Day. My wife and I arrived early and there were approximately 5 tables available when we walked in. They did fill pretty quickly and a small wait formed up front. Side note - I have never been to this restaurant any other time when there was more than 50% capacity, so this was unusual due to the holiday. I found it odd that as tables paid and departed, even with the wait up front, the tables sat with dirty dishes for 15+ minutes. To begin with, we ordered a bottle of wine and two sushi rolls. After a long wait, our waitress came back to take our dinner order. Finally after about 20 minutes, our sushi arrived. Prior to ordering our dinner, two separate 6 top tables were seated beside us. Long story short, both tables received their dinner orders before we did - and we only ordered one entree - General Tso's chicken! While waiting for the entree, the manager came by to ask if we needed our check and a to-go box for the leftover sushi. I explained that we were not finished and that we had been waiting a while for our one entree. He just shrugged and walked away. I watched - he never checked on our order or even questioned our waitress. Also, waitress never stopped back by after delivering the wine. Finally, I got her attention and asked her to check on it. She said our entree would be out shortly. After about 15 more minutes, I had had enough. I asked her to cancel the entree and bring our check. The manager came over to argue and say the entree was on its way. I explained it had been way too long and I just wanted to leave. He offered no apologies, no discounts, no offers to make it right next time. He just had a give me your money and get out attitude. I certainly let him know that I didn't appreciate his customer service and he mumbled something about a gift card and walked away. We waited for him to come back which he never did, so I approached him on the way out and asked him if he forgot something. In disgust, he grabbed a gift card from the front and went over to process it and came back and handed it to me without a word. I looked and the receipt with it said it was for $5. LOL, really? I took the card to the family that had been seated beside us and I can guarantee you that i will not return. There are too many small business owners out there that actually appreciate their customers. I suggest you find one of them too.More

We are on the hunt for a favorite local oriental food place...we might just have found it! On the menu is Chinese and Thai food. The surroundings are nice. It's a sit-down restaurant with waiters. We had Chinese shrimp, chicken and basil and Triple Mongolian...with beef, chicken and shrimp. Both dishes were great. The chicken was very tender and the sauces were tasty and even with the 1 chili pepper on the menu (hottest item had only 2 chili's) they were not too spicy for us. It comes with a little appetizer, your choice from 3 different soups and main course. The main course also had lots of fried rice, a small egg roll and (forgot their real name) dumpling with cream cheese as a small dessert. We will return....More

First Christmas Day without children at home. No tree. No lights. No cleanup. No lunch. We decided to go to Oriental J for lunch. Great move. The restaurant was packed, but still plenary of comfortable seating. Soup and wontons were great appetizers. The Family Meal...for two was we’ll prepared and wonderful to eat. More than enough food. Highly recommend. Great service. Great environment.More
