I love Chinese food and you can say that I am a big fan of any dish made with a side of fried rice. My love for a well made Chinese dish with a side of fried rice comes from my own personal experience coming from a very big Filipino family when it comes to Asian food or just oriental food in general. Everything is a hit on. I must say, my taste bud feels great after eating there. Anyways, onto the food! We ordered a few entrees of food so that we could all share and I have to say everything tasted so yummy! They have the best fried rice I've ever eaten and the tenderness in the general tso's chicken that they prepared was perfect, the crispness was spot on to perfection as well. I highly recommend this restaurant if you live around this area and/or if you're a big Chinese food fanatic like myself because they really do have the best Chinese food I've ever had! A well earned 5 stars out of 5.
This is my preferred Chinese restaurant for take out in SODO. The first reason is that the proportions are perfect for any adult. The American obesity rates are staggering versus other countries and adult portions are properly presented in an elegant way. Each meal is cooked to order and not out on a long buffet line drying out or having been touched by 50 to 100 people ahead of you. The oil used for fried rice is light and not greasy. I prefer spicy Chinese food like Gen. Tso's Chicken and like the homemade breading versus a frozen batch like the chain restaurants or the buffets. The atmosphere is urban chic and pleasant in taupes and beautiful wood. Staff is friendly. The only down side is that the Chinese food is somewhat American-ized. If you prefer a spicier meal more indicative of true Asian, simply tell them in advance. Nice to eat alone or on a date.
They specialize in Peking Duck whereas other places usually serve an awful bastardized version. And if other restaurants do serve the authentic Peking duck (which takes a lot of advance prep), then you would have to order a day ahead, but Lam's serves enough of it to have it ready to order. I also got the Chinese broccoli in garlic sauce which was also great. I can't wait to get this again and I'd like to try their lobster in ginger sauce. I'm so happy to find one of the last remaining authentic Chinese restaurants
REALLY GOOD FOOD!!!!! This place is a very descent Chinese restaurant. My roommate and I were hunting for an hour and a half for a Chinese place that would deliver, but they either had no delivery driver, wouldn't take AmEx, or just didn't answer the phone. I found No. 1 Chinese and they had everything we wanted. The portions are very large, the food tastes great, and they got here 14 minutes before they said they would. All in all, they definitely deserve the name "Number 1."
Must be under new management since previous reviews. No sushi bar, no Mongolian grill, no labels on the food to know what it was, no ice cream, no jello or pudding on dessert bar, not even all the holes in the buffet bar had food in them. Price isn't bad but wouldn't go out of my way to eat there again. Staff is friendly but management needs to get serious about being a Chinese buffet.
This restaurant is very clean and has a friendly and pleasant staff. The lunch specials are great deals, and they are very generous with the portions. Their Kung Pao chicken has good flavor. The standouts here are their hot and sour soup (the best I've tried in this area) and dumplings. I'll definitely be back to try their dumplings again.
I have been ordering from Chengs for many years and they have the best Chinese food. I've have tried other restaurants but have come back every time to the point that I don't bother when a new Chinese restaurant opens up in the area. Service is top notch and delivery service super fast. Highly recommend, you won't be disappointed.
I have eaten in many Chinese restaurants throughout the United States and this little place on OBT in Orlando has similar secrets of cooking american Chinese cuisine as some of those restaurants that are 5-star and have top Zagat ratings. Certainly, this restaurant deserves a 5-start rating and be commended for their cooking.
I just visited the buffet place the other day. The place is not that big. Some of the dishes were great but the food selection is very narrow. Also, the sushi selection is extremely limited. Compared to another buffet place I had visited here in Orlando, Fl, it is not worth visiting in my opinion.
This highly rated place, actually delivered pretty well. They have a large amount of seating including a drop down seating area. The place uses surprisingly large tea cups. We ordered broccoli with beef, chicken lo mein and general Tso's chicken. Portions were large and filling, great for the price.
