Oriental Cafe Restaurant Reviews
Review title:
Liked it until up until today!! Only received 1/2 of my order. I couldn't eat the order without it, so my choice was to drive back up there with 20 before work or get a refund. Called in my problem and person who answers the phone said the amount was too small for a refund. So now out of frustration, I'm returning the entire order. This person stated Saturday would be unacceptable to return the order. They are about 1/2 hour away from me so this is a BIG inconvenience. I have to drive up there after work at 10:30pm today to return the item in order to get the refund. Very poor customer service after only 3 months of going there. Insincere attitude. Not willing to resolve the problem. "What can I do about it now?" attitude.

Overpriced and under flavored    
The wantons in the soup were raw, the rice had no flavor the hot and sour soup wasn't hot and the sweet and sour chicken was excessively greasy. I'd rather go to any of the other local Asian restaurants in the area to get 3 meals for under $25 rather than 2 here for $20.

Best in Vernon    
After trying about 8 other Chinese place in the area we finally went to Oriental Cafe. It was by far the best one we've ever been to and love Uncle Billy! We never go anywhere else for Chinese food. My husband loves the sushi as well.

Vry very good    
I have been eating here since the mid 90s. it was always good, but It has steadily improved and now the sushi and Asian dished are excellent. Kani spicy crab salad is great dish and value. Host and waitstaff are genuine, hey welcome you, work to make sure you like your tale. Just a nice easy place to eat with fiends.

Love it!    
We've been going to Oriental Cafe in Vernon for years. Billy is the best. Joe is the awesome silent partner in the background. The wait staff (go Lynn!) are friendly, efficient and just fabulous. We do take out on average, twice a month. And eat in -on average - about once a month. We meet new and fun people there and take our friends there for special nights out. Excellent full Japanese

I give it a 10    
Great Sushi, excellent general sao's chicken or shrimp. The egg rolls are f'in amazing. Billy (the owner) is a character! Excellent service, huuuuge scorpion bowls for only $11. If you give the guys that make the sushi a tip of like five or ten dollars before you order they will give you samples and chunk up your sushi roll. The only downfall is when you eat there it is way to crammed but that doesn't bother me that much just etting my fellow reader know. ENJOY!

We get take out a couple times a month. I highly recommend this place! Billy rocks!
    Review by: Jaime
Favorite local restaurant    
Love this place,recommend it to everyone and go there at least twice a month. Never had a bad meal there and the hosts are very friendly. Prices are a little high but defiantly worth it, food is excellent and scorpion bowls are never weak! Pork fried rice in house (not take out) is the best I've ever had and the sushi is always very fresh and delicious.

Bad experience    
Overcharged us by $15 and forgot items. This is the second bad experience in the past few weeks. Time to step up and have some accountability. Where is my brownsauce.

Our Favorite    
Really diverse menu (both Chinese and Japanese), great sushi, and owners know their customers. My wife and I go to the Oriental Cafe a few times per month, and when we walk in we are greeted by name. How many places do you go to today where that happens? Billy even knows my favorite drink and starts making it as soon as I sit down! I love this place.

Bad Service    
I love the food but i will never have a sit-down lunch/dinner ever again.They're pushy i felt harrased can't have a peaceful meal here with servers trying to ask questions every 90 seconds.

Awesome Food    
Best Sushi in Tolland County. Good Chinese too. Very generous and great customer service. Their Avocado salad is awesome (Wish I knew how they made the dressing). I always go here for either Japanese or Chinese and nowhere else maybe except Ichiban in West Hartford.

Great Food/Lots of Variety    
The Oriental Cafe has something for everyone. Because of the dual menus of both Chinese
    Review by: Laura
I order food from here regularly and it is very good. It seems healthier than most chinese food. The people here are very nice as well. I would tell everybody to try this place at least once.
    Review by: Unknown
Diverse and Reliable    
Food is always good and less greasy and salty than most Chinese restaurants. I've enjoyed both their Japanese and Chinese specialties on many occasions. Their dinner prices are slightly higher tham most places, but worth the difference. The Monday - Saturday lunch specials are a terrific deal and are excellent. he food is consistently good here. Sometimes, especially for dinner, the service can be a bit spotty, but never bad enough to deter me from coming back. Highly recommended.
