My wife and I stopped at the Hampton Inn Salem on a trip south. We asked at the front desk for a list of restaurants that delivered, as we just spent 11 hours in the car. Without high expectations we ordered from Szechuan Chinese. What a surprise!

First the food was delivered faster than the 45 minutes described to us. We ordered Orange Duck, Chicken Chow Mein and an order of Pork Fried Rice. The food was hot and fresh. The duck was perfectly medium rare with a crispy skin. My wife loved the chow mein. She orders it everywhere. This was excellent! Hot, fresh, crispy vegetables and great flavor, the rice was also nicely done. Very Pleased with the delivery order.

Thank Steve W

There Is ONLY ONE (1) Approximately 16 Item Hot/Steam Bar Area, With Another Back Hot Bar Area Offering Approximately 10 Items. Side (Refrigerated Bar Area Of 14 Items Offers Salad Items, Deserts (Sandwich Cookies && Jello Cubes?)

Entered Restaurant, Greeted By Counter Person - Seated In Booth By AnotherWitg Silver-Ware " Hand-Off " Who Asked For #DrinkOrder Before I Even Sat Down --> OK, Cool! " Asked For COKE Or Pepsi, Whatever You Carry " Later On Bill Found Out Their Drinks Are $2.45 <--- VERY Excessive Per Local Cost ! Initial Look At Overall #Buffet Told bat This Was Going To Be Disappointing. NO Butter Knifes To Go With Soup Spoon & Knife In Silver-Ware Table Service Wrap, No DUCK, Tarter or CocktailTaso Sauces Readily Available! When Asked Waiter "wE DON'T Have Those ".

After a long morning at the VA, we were very hungry. As we headed out not knowing anything about where to eat in Salem we spotted this restaurant. The buffet must be the draw. The place was very busy most headed to fill their plates from the buffet. We ordered off the menu. The hot and sour soup was a bit on the vinegar taste. I had a vegetable dish which was very nice (from the lunch specials) which CD and with an egg roll. The egg roll was crispy, but no dipping sauces were offered. My partner had sauteed green beans. Again very well prepared. Worth the trip!

So I ordered fresh steamed vegetables and extra spicy curried chicken. What I got was Extra mushy old veggies left over from the lunch buffet and some no flavor mushy breaded frozen microwave chicken with frozen peas and carrots and a yellow canned sauce they were trying to pass off as curry. If your in your 90's and have no taste buds and want a buffet go for it. If you want real fresh food, Keep driving.
