Like SWRestaurants, Oak Ridge has lots of Asian restaurants to chose from. Most are all equal except a few rotten apples. new China no longer has the serene view of the lake (about2 years) but they do have the only shrimp toast in town! Consistency of food isn't there. Sometimes excellent soups & descent entrees & other times everything is... More

My family has frequented ChIna Palace for years. One of our favorite restaurants for Sunday lunch. Good food, generous portions, reasonably priced. They have an extensive menu, great egg rolls and clean pleasant atmosphere in the dining room. You can also call ahead and order and pick up at the convenient drive up window.

Slightly better than a buffet. The hot and sour soup is neither hot nor sour, it is a little sweet and otherwise tasteless. The chicken in garlic sauce was forgettable, the chicken was diced into about 1/2 inch square lumps as were the vegetables, neither had much taste. The egg roll was crunchy on the outside but otherwise bland.

This is a traditional Chinese restaurant with no buffet. They offer hot tea, which to me is a staple of actual Chinese restaurants. The beef and broccoli is outstanding, and the chicken with curry is to die for. The egg rolls are crisp - not soggy. I find the egg drop soup a little weird because it has corn in... More

Ask to see Deere and say hello. You will love this food. All menu items are great. This place was once located near Melton Lake and now relocated to the center of town. Nice location. Try the Generals.....
