Went last night and other was absolutely packed so realise if you don't book you have no chance of getting in. This is because the food and the portions were excellent. The only downside is that because they are so busy they don't give you any resting time between courses we were in and out in an hour.

Yet another good meal at the Orient. A few years ago we used to be here all the time and standards slipped but in the last year the management has really upped their game. After its decline we sort out other places but have now been back a few times and are pleasantly surprised that the standards are back up.... More

We arrived at 7pm for our table. Greeted by a very pleasant gentleman. We took the banquet option as this seemed best for our group (of 6). They charged for prawn crackers £3 for no more than 12 crackers was a bit steep - and we weren't aware of this as they didn't appear on menu. The food came, course... More

Took my brother for his birthday. Service was excellent as was the food. We ordered the set hors d'oeuvres and duck and pancakes. The duck was superb! The ribs were extremely tough though and fatty. Wouldn't order the set Thai hors d'oeuvres again though. Think the individual starters are better. Would definitely go again. It's not particularly cheap hence why... More

The food is fresh and the staff friendly and helpful. Dominic the owner is running a tight ship. The atmosphere is friendly.

The restaurant is popular. It however does not cater downstairs for parties above 10 without blocking the aisle to the Kitchen, disabled w/c and reception area. Staff are very friendly. Food very tasty but service was quite slow. We had one of the many banquet of choice, costing around £19 per head. Large potions. For 10 people , 9 banquets... More

Eat here a couple of times recently. Both meals have been very nice nothing spectacular but equally nothing that made you wish you hadn't bothered. The crispy duck has been very good on both occasions. We did however find the service to be a little slow especially for ordering extra drinks which is surprising as this is the money earner...
