I've always wanted to eat here and haven't. Wish I had a long time ago. Very good Hunan rice. Veggies and meat are fresh and top quality. No yellow rice here. The WonTon soup was very delicious. Service was top notch. My only complaint is I never was brought chip sticks. Order whatever you want. Other tables had dishes that... More

I love this place and the only reason I can't give it five stars is that a couple of times over the last year the chicken has seemed not so fresh. We get carry out here at least once a month, Most of the time the food is incredibly fresh, vegetables are always crisp and the meat is usually very... More

Some of us are old enough to remember when Oriental food came to Louisville..my family loved Hoe Kow (I still miss their war sue gai) but when that closed, we had to branch out. I love Oriental House! They have the most tasty moo goo gai pan I have ever had....most moo goo gai pans seem bland, but not here.... More

The dim sum was very tasty, shrimp and pork rolls, turnip cakes, rice crepe with pork, and shrimp and green onion Definitely a good choice for... More

My Chinese wife and I have visited the Oriental House quite a few times. Mostly just the two of us for lunch or dinner but a couple of times with a larger party (5-6 or larger) and it has most always been very good. Witness my other 2 or 3 other posts here. Tonight (Chinese New Year Eve) was the... More

We had a friend in from out of the country and he wanted duck for dinner. We chose this restaurant based on very good overall reviews we saw on TripAdvisor. All three of us were very disappointed with our food. My wife received her beef and broccoli dish first. My friend received his duck dinner about 3 minutes later. About... More

Yes, I've been coming to Oriental House for more than half a century. Back then it was the only Chinese in town. Today, it's not and some things have changed but the food's still quite good even though there has been at least one ownership change. The bar is new but the red decor has not changed since the 1960s.... More

We go here anytime we are near the place! Their lunch menu is just the perfect amount. We get the lunch portion even at night. They have the best War Sue Gai I have had anywhere! Egg rolls are great too. My husband loves their egg drop soup.
