Nice variety, very friendly owners, fair prices. This looks to be a favorite of locals (I was just passing through) given how many people were here.

Traditional Chinese dishes are very very good. There are 4.5 years we go to eat sushi and sashimi in this restaurant, and EVERY TIME it's great! Great service as well.

Have been going to this location for over a year and consistently has been the best place for sushi rolls and sashimi. We always get the Orange Beef/Steak as it has been one of the only places that doesn't have a lot of breading packed on. The spring rolls, dumplings, and negamaki are other favs. Happy hour is legit.

We love the Oriental Cafe. Always a great experience. We go for lunch and the variety of special lunch offerings is extensive. Personally love the General Tso's chicken--spicy with extra broccoli. My husband is a fan of the sushi lunch. His favorites are the spicy tuna roll and the Japanese bagel roll. We tend to bring take out home for... More

On our way to the Smokey Mountains, we stopped in at a restaurant recommended by Trip Adviser reviewers and we were very pleased we did. A charming eatery, the Oriental Café in Harrisonburg, VA offers quite an extensive menu. We were surprised how quickly our dishes (in generous portions) showed up at our table, an indication that this would be... More

Ate lunch at the Oriental Cafe with a good friend today. I had never eaten there before but my lunch partner had and recommended that we give it a try. The restaurant is nicely appointed, comfortable, relatively quiet and the food was very close to a rating of excellent. Even though Harrisonburg is a town of only 50,000, there are... More

We typically order take-out and truly enjoy the chicken with broccoli. Have never been disappointed with the food being ready and how great it is. Will be back many more times.

There were 5 of us for dinner on 17AUG that took 15 minutes to get waited on for drinks. There were only three other tables and they all had their food. The waitress looked at our table a half dozen times and never came over to wait on us. We figured out later she was leaving early so we assume... More
