This restaurant offers a nice little lunch buffet. It's not huge, but it's reasonably priced and the food is good.

Long wait on food sometimes but the food has always been very good and made to order. If you are in the mood for Asian in Oak Ridge this is a great place to eat.

We were in the area on business and tried this restaurant our second day here. We had the lunch buffet. Price was reasonable and the food was fresh and good. We were able to eat a quick lunch and get back to the office quickly at a reasonable price.

I had lunch here before shopping at the nearby grocery store. Lunch Buffet including tax costs $6.00, a drink would be extra. This restaurant offers both a buffet and a very extensive menu and does a brisk carry-out business. The buffet has several entree dishes including some very good Black Pepper Chicken, plus traditional main dishes including beef with broccoli,... More

This is a typical hole-in-the-wall Chinese Buffet with carry-out available too. They have one hot bar with several chicken dishes, plus at least one beef and one pork for lunch time, and a seafood option for dinner. Lunch is $5.45, so with tax your total bill is $6. That's hard to beat anywhere for an all-you-can-eat buffet. The menu for... More

Not sure where the other people reviewing have been eating but China Wok is great! Also note, the picture above is incorrect. I have been ordering from China Wok for 5 years and this has never been their storefront. This is a small, family owned restaurant. The food is always hot and flavorful when picked up on time, which if... More
