We have been coming to the Seneca Lake Region for wine tasting with friends for the past 8 years. We decided to dine differently then previous years. We decided that we would try the Chinese restaurant in downtown Watkins Glen. The building on the outside is beautiful, the interior was pleasant but outdated. We were pleasantly and efficiently served by... More

Yes this place is under new management. The quality is definitely a step down from previous owners. The portions are slightly smaller and the prices are slightly higher.however the sushi chef is still the same and does a nice job. Watkins is all about tourism and that's the reason for the changes. Used to be a pretty good bargain. Not... More

This restaurant is under new management. The owners of the Orient Hibachi Buffet (now unfortunately closed) took over House of Hong 3 weeks ago. The excellent buffet is gone. The food is fairly standard Chinese. We will not return.

The food and service were just ok , but it seems like it is the only oriental choice in town. We had the wonton soup and 2 entrees. I would not say its fancy but it is quite nice to have the option of food in town .

While the restaurant had a good vegetarian selection, the food was average. They offer a completely separate vegetarian menu, which was awesome. The food was hot and plentiful, just not special when compared to other Asian restaurants. There is a Sushi bar with fresh made sushi to order and we sampled some of the vegetarian items but again - average.... More

The food is good here - you can tell the it's fresh. Best Chinese option in Watkins Glen imo because in addition to the food, it's got a nice sit-down atmosphere with waitstaff that will take your order like a normal restaurant. I do not eat Sushi, but they have a Sushi chef available. The only thing I can see... More

Very clean old house built in the 1800's. The food was served hot and had very good flavor. The price was fair and all around a good place to eat.

Within walking distance to our hotel. Fast, reasonably priced take-out or eat-in. Open until 10 pm. Your average Chinese restaurant.
