Taste of the Orient used to be a pretty good Chinese food restaurant in Fort McMurray. I am from Fort McMurray and and I have patronized their business for over 20 years. The quality of their food has declined significantly in the last few years. I used to order take out and or pick up at least once or twice... More

I always enjoy the food & eat here every 2 weeks. I always find it fresh & hot. They now always know our order & my beer. Great choices & very reasonably priced. I have eaten in & have it delivered & always satisfied. Jeff

This is not what I consider good. There was poor selection for what they called the Buffet. I decided to order off the menu - bad decision too. It all tasted the same - "blah" Saw the server twice-when she took my order and 30min later when she brought it. I did not go back and don't plan too. What... More

I see that many reviewers are very negative on this place. Funny thing is the staff are always friendly to me and since I do not like going to chain restaurants when I travel, I want to get something different and this place is one of the best mom and pops in town. I have a vegetarian friend who is... More
