My Chinese wife and I have visited the Oriental House quite a few times. Mostly just the two of us for lunch or dinner but a couple of times with a larger party (5-6 or larger) and it has most always been very good. Witness my other 2 or 3 other posts here. Tonight (Chinese New Year Eve) was the... More

We had a friend in from out of the country and he wanted duck for dinner. We chose this restaurant based on very good overall reviews we saw on TripAdvisor. All three of us were very disappointed with our food. My wife received her beef and broccoli dish first. My friend received his duck dinner about 3 minutes later. About... More

Yes, I've been coming to Oriental House for more than half a century. Back then it was the only Chinese in town. Today, it's not and some things have changed but the food's still quite good even though there has been at least one ownership change. The bar is new but the red decor has not changed since the 1960s.... More

We go here anytime we are near the place! Their lunch menu is just the perfect amount. We get the lunch portion even at night. They have the best War Sue Gai I have had anywhere! Egg rolls are great too. My husband loves their egg drop soup.

We came to OH to dine after Shabbat services. There were so many of our congregation there we should have held services here! I had the veg stir fry and it had just he right spice. My husband had orange chicken. Mr Picky says it was very good. The best part was our funny waiter. She was attentive and helpful.

This restaurnat has been around for many years and the food is always good. The duck is the best in town. Service is good. Staff is friendly. I like the egg rolls. They do a big carry out business.

I went here with a friend who grew up in Hong Kong. She recommended the Place because of the authentic Chinese Food. I have driven past it for years and never stopped in - and you can't miss it driving on Shelbyville Road because of the distinctive design. We came early (4:30) and chose to eat several dim sum. I...

Rumors has it that any Chinese chef in Louisville had their start at oriental house. It still remains a solid choice with great menu and excellent service. Presentation is also perfect. Look at this fish in attached photo.
