For a few years, my family moved to Kamloops and one of our restaurants we frequented was Oriental Gardens in the early 70s, driving through Kamloops last month we decided to stop in for dinner at this restaurant and although it was very clean, it seemed nothing had changed, the look was still authentic, the tatami rooms were still there,...

Japanese and Chinese food are both very good here. It is a nice place for an intimate dinner when you request a totami room where you can sit with your guest(s) in a secluded room away from other guests,. They serve you in this room and it is fun and and experience to remember. Its Asian Fine Dining

Food was only okay, not what reviews trumped it up to be... I had a combination; only one option...sad face. Combo was basic, s&s pork, chow mein, chop suey and prawns. At least it was hot, hottest I've experienced, almost burnt by tongue! Was cold where I was sitting (near private dining rooms); only got one beer, waitress was busy... More

This was my second time here and both times were very good. The staff are friendly and the service was super fast. We tried both Chinese and Japanese food and enjoyed it all!

The best item we tried was their squid. It was sautéed and seasoned perfectly. Their stir fried noodles and fried rice are decent, at par with most Chinese restaurants around the world. Their Japanese udon is not terrible, but it is not good either. It was a little over cooked. Their tempura was a bit of a let down. The... More

I can't speak for the Japanese food also offered here but we were all very disappointed by the Chinese food. The ingredients were fresh and it looked very appealing, but there a distinct lack of flavour. All three dishes tasted similar (which they shouldn't have as they were not based on any similarities) one of the dishes was supposed to... More

This place is a time warp. It reminds me of the places we went to many years ago ago for "fancy" Chinese food. It's certainly not authentic but, it was tasty.The portions are huge. Service was friendly and efficient. The room is neat, clean and nicely decorated. If you're looking for old style chow mein, chop suey or sweet and... More

I am happy to see this restaurant rated so highly in this community. It is one of the original Kamloops restaurants and has maintained its quality for over 30 years. Maybe because it is family owned or the long standing staff or their commitment to fresh food with no MSG, it remains a go to restaurant for my family and... More
