Good heavens, if that's too negative, someone better tell John from Kingwood, TX. He's Chinese and has owned Oriental Gardens restaurant there since 1987! It rocks!
Quite right...if you really want to get technical about it the "A" in asian should be capitalized...so there...Mexican food isn't called Spanish food ..is it?

Oriental is an antiquated term. I don't think there's anything wrong with it or offensive, per se, it is just very outdated. I can't say I've ever eaten at Pei Wei but it is a national chain, FYI. Probably not your most authentic option for Asian cuisine. But hey, if you like it -- then enjoy!! Nothing wrong with that.

Ate at Mencius the other night. It's slipping a touch. Sloppy execution and not knowledgeable waiter. But it was good.

That Thai Bistro on DeZavala near the Post Office has been good.

Somebody better tell Tim that his Oriental Market is offensive. (It's actually just the fishy smell that bothers me a little but.....). Oh, and there's a store/restaurant (?) at Bandera and Wurzbach named Oriental Cuisine.....I think I'll stop tomorrow and let them know they are not supposed to call it that.

Yes they are but it doesnt make the name "Chinese" or "Oriental" incorrect.
