"Being Asian", or whatever, one of the first things that happens when a new Chinese restaurant opens up is to check it out and spread the word of how the place is to rest of our fellow community.
So when Oodles of Noodles opened up a couple of years ago, of course our family had to check it out.
This review is going to focus more on the buffet aspect of the restaurant. Before even walking into the restaurant, the smell of delicious food hits you. After walking in, we are seated in the middle of the place. Despite how it looks, the place actually has a lot of seating available in different areas.
The decor of the place consists of a waterfall in Aztec fashion and green and yellow stripes. It looks kind of tacky, but I guess this was some jungle adventure restaurant before the present owner bought it. They must've felt lazy about redecorating the place.
The variety of food they have there is staggering. They have about four rows just full of of food. There's the traditional foods such as General Tsao's chicken, sesame chicken, stiry fry mixes of seafood, chicken and broccoli, etc. Then there is also the more American foods such as pizza, fries, chicken wings, etc. Stables for the people who like to stick to the good old usuals and/or are afraid of trying something new. What is even more delightful is how they actually have the more authentic foods such as red bean buns and dumplings. Food that's not usually found in some restaurants. The dessert bar of the buffet is kind of disappointing. They really don't have anything except for fruits, frozen yogurt, and jello and weird pastry dishes. However, the main meal more than makes up for this. I doubt it, with it being a buffet and all, that there is much room for dessert anyway. Besides, there's always the fortune cookie to look forward to.
The price range of the buffet depends on whether you go during lunch or dinner. Friday is usually seafood night, and i believe a little more expensive. I think lunch is around 7 or 8 bucks. I'm not totally sure seeing how my parents paid for it... Dinner is more expensive, costing over 10 bucks. Don't quote me on the prices though. I'm probably wrong, but I do believe that's the range.
