We traveled from Hampton, NH to The Lo Kai restaurant for a change of pace. We were not disappointed. Mike, the owner was quick to welcome us and spent a few minutes letting us know hop pleased he was to see us back again. To our delight Tom Pitman was entertaining us for the evening. We could not have picked... More

I have never ordered from the buffet, but the food off the menu is superb and my family loves the place. My sister comes up from FL and orders extra food to freeze and take home because there is nothing like it down south. Drinks are awesome too. The staff are more than attentive and friendly, and if you go... More

Went here a few months ago for a party. The party room seems to be stuck in the early 80s complete with disco ball and dance floor, but the band was entertaining. The food on the other hand was awful. We did the Buffett and the food was gross. Seemed old and had no taste. There are other better places... More

My wife and I drop in once in a while for dinner, we get the buffet. Some times its ok. Tonight it was way less than that. We walked in after 5 pm, this is as a rule the food has been changed over. Not tonight. The boneless ribs were grissily and no flavor to them. The chicken Terriaki was... More

Not a bad place for a few drinks and dinner on a budget. The buffet is always good too. However, They should do some updating.. It's very outdated.

We've been going here for years and find it to be very good. The restaurant is popular for their lunch and dinner buffet. Also, they have a comfortable bar setting. We usually order the pupu platter with rice. Have also ordered the dinner buffet which is a very good choice. Plenty of parking and handicap accessible. This is close to... More

What was once one of our favorite Chinese restaurants is in need of some serious updating. Their buffet can be fairly good if you get there at the right time, but if not the food can be dry and they don't refill everything when it's later.

This is is the 2nd year in a row we went to the New Year's Eve party at the Lo Kai in Dracut. What a fantastic time! The music (Tom Pittman & Linda Chase) were fantastic and played music from the 50's to present day! Everyone was dancing and having a great time. The buffet food was fresh and quickly... More

Friday and Saturday nights in the lounge has different bands and attractions. Drinks are good, food is not bad, they have a buffet that you should be able to find something to please you. Wait staff is good always a smile. Plenty of parking. Located on Lakeview Ave. next to Speed way gas station. (Use to be a Hess ).
