Oriental Buffet Restaurant

Oriental Buffet Restaurant at 13461 Hall Road in Shelby Township.

As you may have guessed by now, some of us at AmericaJR dig our Chinese food. We are finally revealing our favorite, the Oriental Buffet, which features over 200 Chinese, Japanese, and American delights.

Set up along similar lines of most buffets, Mike Wrathell and I head for the back table first. It’s there that you will find sushi, cocktail shrimp and clams on the half shell on ice, and at least a dozen different sauces for dipping.

Head for the appetizer table next. There is an always-full array of spring and egg rolls, crab Rangoon, meaty spareribs, fried shrimp, and teriyaki chicken on a stick, among other items. As an aside, someone once told us that any food is good, if it is on a stick. Unfortunately, he was referring to alligator.

There is soup and salad in abundance which includes plenty of fruit, veggies and all the trimmings, as well as seafood salad . There is also lots of dim sum if you are so inclined. Head next for the protein, which includes crab legs, salmon, a fish o’ the day, pork roast you can serve yourself, and even duck. The usual traditional dishes abound, such as those with rice and noodles, but the list also includes our favorite Shrimp with Lobster Sauce, General Tso’s Chicken, and Orange Beef. Explore for yourself the remaining 175 dishes we didn’t get to and remember that they have plenty of items for kids, such as pizza, fries, oniion rings, and the ever popular and overly fat-saturated mac and cheese.

There is a full Mongolian Grill and a dessert table that includes ice cream and various pastries under a poster, just in case you are curious to know if they are actually authentic.

The personnel here are amazing. Because I smoke, we sit in a back room and generally manage to get the same table. Our server always remembers us and that we automatically receive a crab cracker and chopsticks, and never lets our water glasses reach half-empty. She is truly lovely and chats with us at each visit, telling us about her upbringing in China and asking us how we have been. Manager Audrey was delighted that we had decided to tell you about the OB. She apologized for one server who didn’t quite fathom why we were taking all those pictures because she didn’t speak English well. She apologized later, as did we, for not speaking Chinese.

The OB is quite reasonable pricewise. Depending on day of the week, an adult plate will cost you $6.69 for lunch, and $9.99 - $11.99 for dinner. Kids can eat for $3.95 up to $6.50 depending on age. The eatery also has an extensive entrée menu or you can take-out the buffet by weight if you include at least 3 items. They also have a free party room and delivery with purchase minimum, and often feature discount coupons in local publications.

About the only thing we could find to complain about was never enough large napkins for those of us that love crab legs and not being able to eat more of the yummy fare. We give it a 5 egg roll rating. Next time you are up for Chinese food, drop by “our” table and give us a hello.
