The Oriental Buffet, 1000 Linden St., made its debut in Ogdensburg Monday.

Located at 1000 Linden St., at the former Sholette’s Steak House, the restaurant features all-you-can-eat dining and takeout menus.

Linda Li-Zheng, who formerly ran the A1 Buffet King, 701 Canton St., said customers can expect a variety of new dishes from coconut shrimp to peanut chicken inspired by the restaurant’s chef, Lou Jason.

“The prices are very reasonable for the variety that you get” she said.

Mr. Jason has been working in the kitchens for over 30 years, Mrs. Li-Zheng said.

“He’s been doing this for a long time and he is one of the best in the county,” she said.

The spacious dining room seats more than 100 people and offers a private party room.

“It’s a much bigger location with more parking to accommodate our customers,” Mrs. Li-Zheng said.

Mrs. Li-Zheng said is also hoping to attract customers from Canada while they are shopping along Route 37.

Mrs. Li-Zheng, who has been in the restaurant business for 22 years in St. Lawrence County, founded Chinese restaurants in Canton, Potsdam, Gouverneur, Massena and Ogdensburg.

The Oriental Buffet will be open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Sunday. To place an order, call 393-9390.
