“Not too bad for a small upstate New York town”
Review of Orient Hibachi Buffet - CLOSED

Orient Hibachi Buffet
Cuisines: Chinese
Description: This is a family-owned Chinese restaurant which opened in September 2011. It features a diverse buffet as well as a hibachi grill where customers can build their own dish. The hibachi grill dish is included with the price of the buffet. Customers can also order off of the menu if they so desire. The food is fresh and delicious and the customer service is world-class!

We had Friday night dinner during the NASCAR weekend in Watkins Glen - and there wasn't a big crowd. The Oriental Hibachi is a cozy restaraunt and the buffet looked a little sparse (but we didn't choose the buffet) but the waitress told later customers they would refill whatever they wanted. We both had the House Special Pad Thai and it was quite good - the quantity of shrimp, beef and chicken was more than expected. Beer selection is quite limited, but they do have Kirin Ichiban beer.

To be fair - we went late at night, so not a lot was left. She did make some fresh shrimp for Bob. It was a small, simple family run place. Just 20.00 for the two of us and good tea.

Went here with friends. The staff are a large family including the kids. Service is excellent but they do not speak very good english so it can be tricky. The buffet has a huge selection and initially we were concerned that there was not much of each item. This ended up being just fine because they cooked everything fresh and immediately made more of anything that was running out. If you go in a large group go up last and you will get the fresh food (lol). It is very plain inside but no concerns. If you like asian buffet this is a good choice.

Food was terrible. I was with my colleague on a business trip stop in lunch time to grab a quick lunch. First of all, The waitress & waiter doesn't speak fluent English to take our drink order. By the time we go to the buffet table to grab our food there wasn't much selection there practically majority of the food was empty. We ask the waitress to refill she didn't understand us. Therefore what we had to eat was whatever selection in buffet table. Food had no seasoning & not cooked right some of the vegetable n meat was not fully cooked. Do not stop by at all the food is terrible terrible.

My friends and I went to Watkins Glen for a short vacation. We loved the Chinese food. We all wondered if there is Chinese anywhere here. We found one, called Orient Hibachi Buffet. It looks small, but its AMAZING!!!!! The foods are fresh, it is very comfy, and the price wasn't that bad. Around $9, its a reasonable price. My friends and I very enjoyed it. We sure we will come to this restaurant every time we come to Watkins Glen. We went there three times in a row! Then, before we leave, we went there again! I can't wait to come back again!
