I finally found a place that serves one of my favorite dishes. However, I have yet to order it without commentary from the wait staff. "You know it doesnt have noodles?" Yes, I do. I will continue to patronize your restaurant on the simple fact that you serve Chow Mein. I will bear the interrogations regarding my order. Forgive my... More

I've been here several times for take-out, stopped in today to get chicken and broccoli. Asked for light sauce without rice, they accomodated my requests. Service was quick. Not the best Chinese food I've had, but it does taste pretty good. Ingredients always fresh. Not a bad option of you're looking for good Chinese food in the area.

Busy Chinese restaurants at off hours are a gauge for the quality of food, service and, of course, popularity. Orient Garden, located on Highway 54 in South Durham is always busy--take out or inside dining. Their take-out business is brisk but orders are always ready for pick up when you arrive. Favorites are Sesame Chicken and Steamed Chicken and Vegetables... More

I used to eat here a lot. Last year i went and had horrible service, was rushed out as they close at 230 and the lady even took my food before i was done eating. I decided to give them one more try today. I made sure to arrive at 130 to avoid being rushed out. We were a party... More

This restaurant has the worse customer service I have ever encountered even above fast food. They rush everything except bringing out your food. The lady standing behind the cluttered cash register area is very unfriendly and has a nasty attitude. How dare you constantly tell me at 1:45 that you close at 2:30 (I see the sign on the door)....

This restaurant has a nice menu with a lot of choices and the food is generally good, though not among the best Chinese I've ever had. The ambience is very casual and the restaurant is clean, although the cash register area is sometimes cluttered with office and other restaurant supplies. Service is friendly, although a bit rushed, even though the... More

Having used to work in an office very close to this restaurant, I frequented there often and it was always excellent. However, on my last two visits, I have felt extremely rushed but today was the absolute worst! They close for lunch service at 2:30. I arrived at 2:02pm. As the cashier was seating me, she told me that they... More

We order fried rice with extra chicken about once a month from here. Excellent. Never dry. Good value. We drive from Chapel Hill here for lunch.

We're addicted. Our friends warned us that might happen, and over a decade later we still have to frequently grab a dinner or 2 to go. Makes for a great wine & dinner for several movie nights! We can come close to making similar dinners in our own kitchen, but for the value & time, why would we even try... More
