There is nothing special about this place. It is, at best, OK. The food has nice flavors but nothing memorable. They do appear to replenish the buffet items quickly. The major benefit is that the price is low so you can eat a lot for a little. A real case of you get what you pay for.

I had passed by Cafe 101 hundreds of times but decided to make a stop after reading a review in GA Voice. I should have continued passing it by... THE GOOD-there was plenty of staff to clear tables, etc and the staff seemed eager to please. The restaurant which occupies a former establishment had a circular architect that was interesting...

When we arrived at Cafe 101 it was almost completely empty. We were shown to a table and the waitress asked for our drink orders. It took two attempts as her pronounciation of the English language was ... well, actually somewhat comically cliche-bad. We received our cans (!) of drink quicky. When enquiring about a dish on the menu the... More

Casual, pleasant atmosphere with above average food. Cucumber and kim chi starters were very good. Steamed dumplings, basil chicken, and shrimp with pecans were very good.

Stopped by here last weekend. We got two entrees and the buffet. The salt and pepper squid was pretty good but the buffet and sesame chicken were below par. Been here twice before and it was much better.

Our experience was a little bit of a mixed bag. I would go back and probably try some different items. The place is very casual which is nice. It is easy to find and they have plenty of spaces in the parking lot. It was just two of us so we decided to order the spicy wontons, dan dan noodles,... More

I brought my teenage daughter here for a Sunday brunch. She loves Chinese and wanted to try some things different from her normal selections. We were not disappointed. This was a really good variety of soup, appetizers and entrees. The only disappointment was they did not have the pickled salad we normally get with dinner. $7.95 per person is a... More

I wish I had read the reviews on Yelp, very different than here. I had the Dan Dan Noodles, they were so heavy with peanut flavor, more like peanut butter, that we could barely try them, and the noodles themselves were limp, mostly from being over sauced, no heat or spice. The pickled daikon and the pickled cucumbers were very... More

Cafe 101 is becoming one of our favorite traditional Chinese restaurants in Atlanta (actually in the international area of Doraville). The menu is full of traditional foods not familiar to many Americans, but there is also food like lo mein many will recognize. The portions are immense and the food is cooked fresh and served piping hot. The Chinese eggplant... More
