Sorry, but the food was dreadful. Tasted reheated and poor quality. I ordered Pad Thai, really substandard. Fairly pricey for low. end product.

Service was good, but the food was just not worth leaving the house for. Out of the six Chinese dishes, nothing was even close to average.

Well as the title states the guy answering the phone speaks VERY loudly and quickly. Asks for your phone number so the "delivery person can call me later". Talks over me every step of the way literally after every three numbers. Finally we get to the ordering part. "What do you order?" was shouted at me. I replied with dragon... More

Three of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals on a Saturday night. We almost walked out however after not being seated for over 10 mins and watched another group seat themselves and have their order taken. We are glad we stayed. The hibachi chicken, shrimp and chicken with vegetables and beef with noodles were all tasty and were good size portions.... More

Went here for late night drinks after work with friends, took forever to get a drink. The bar is very dark and very loud, they do however have a little deck out front if you want to get away from the noise. Dance floor is packed with people.

I have never reviewed a place negatively this is my first time. Granted I have been there the last two times at 2:30 for the lunch buffet slim selections and we had to beg for more ice tea. Yesterday Tong spent most of our lunch on the phone complaining about this and that money prices of things but the crazy... More

Nice owner and the photos on the walls are fantastic, but the buffet was very small for $13. The sign said lunch buffet for $8.99, but we were charged the more expensive dinner rate at 2:30pm.

When you first enter, you are greeted by Hoy Tong, the owner. He used to take a picture of your group and post it on the wall but I am not sure if there is any room left. The best deal is to enjoy the buffet. Unlike most Chinese buffets, most of Tong Dynasty's food is made on premises. There... More

If you are looking for a Chinese buffet, look no further. Mr. Tong is the man!!! Food is usually fresh and they put sushi on the buffet which is awesome. Always clean and Mr. Tong is very nice, make sure to chat with him before you leave.

Tong's is one of our facorite go-to places when we're in Lexington. Well-stocked buffet (which is all we've evr gotten) with many choices. Tong himself is a very gracious host. Tong's is also a favorite of the Cadets from VMI & he is very good to them, too. Many fun pictures of Cadets on the wall...homey feel.
