Fantastic food and service as always
Really lovely food! My friend and I really enjoyed the high quality, flavours and varied selection. Would definitely eat here again!
Great location, food very good and great value for money (set menu C). Service was efficient, polite and the right balance. Clean throughout. 👍🏼
Easy to find on China town gate . Comfortable seating coupled with friendly knowledgeable staff ✔️✔️✔️
I would recommend you to eat here, nice and clean.
Service was efficient and quick but not rushed.
Food portions were generous and tasty.
The curry is rather hot....be mindful if you dont like spicy /hot but if you do its delicious.
We will definitely go back. We even popped in to change the time of our reservation and they were very accommodating.
Perhaps they use too much MSG. Would suggest that they reduce the amount used!
Really good food great service and a reasonable price thank you to the lovely staff very nice people
Lovely food, place and people. Had a great time here, I've been here twice now and it has been great both times.
Amazing food, really helpful and friendly staff. Sizzling beef fillet with black pepper is a must
Restaurant was good, but the open table description was incorrect!!! You stated they did dim sum all day ! Which was the primary reason for going! In fact they stopped at 5pm so my 8.15pm booking suffered!!! Your description did not align with restaurant website !! Good restaurant poor OpenTable !
Great location in China Town with extensive menu. Set menu options very good value for money & good way to try variety. We opted for menu C - mixed starters, crispy duck with 3 pancakes each & 3 mains . The mixed veg only one which didn't really get touched. Generous portion of special fried rice to accompany it. Would go back
Food was incredible. The staff were helpful and friendly. I would certainly go there again.
Excellent food and service. Particularly liked the sesame prawn toast and crispy beef.
First class immaculate upmarket chinese restaurant.Excellent service and fantastic high quality tasty food
Great fresh ingredients cooked from fresh .. Chicken in black bean sauce and vegetables chow mein - best I’ve had a in a very long time
Great restaurant, highly recommend the set menu as so much to choose from
Delicious food with the most helpful, polite and friendly staff. Four of us ate here on Friday night and had a very enjoyable night. Fabulous value for money and highly recommend.
Food - excellent. Service - attentive but not overbearing. Drinks - pricey for small volumes; guess that’s London. Those short statements can be used, but overall EVERYONE in the family left very happy and very full.
Very tasty food, great service and overall good vibes.
Very accommodating staff. Great atmosphere and food. Very pleased with this Chinese! Truly a hidden gem in Chinatown.
The food and service were amazing. Can’t fault anything about them. Great experience from a Chinese restaurant as sometimes it is hit and miss.
Really great set menu. Good value for money and plenty of food.
A perfect place to eat. Well prices, great food and service.
We had a very enjoyable lunch with one of our staff members who is leaving. The food and service were first class. The set menu C is very good value for money and there was more than enough for everyone to eat.
This was not our first visit, staff very welcoming and efficient.
Food is absolutely delicious.
I cannot recommend The Orient highly enough!
Superb best Chinese food I have tasted. Service was brilliant.
Booked based on reviews and not disappointed, great service, delicious food, good time
Fabulous! Little pricey however the food was amazing so paid gladly.
Very quick service, very good portions at a reasonable price. Would definitely go back again.
The food was really delicious and service very attentive. Our only issue was that we would have liked a little more time between courses. We felt very rushed. Otherwise another excellent meal.
Great quality food and service! Our first visit and will definitely return.
I visited Orient London for the first time with a colleague and we LOVED it! The food was amazing (we ordered the mixed dim sum, peking duck, fruity wine and beef teriyaki)
Lovely staff, accommodated 2 additional people to make up a party of 8; food was really yummy and arrived in good time. Total bill was really reasonable for 8 people - loads of food!
Excellent dim sum, nice friendly service, clean and bright place
Lovely freshly cooked food,we opted for the set menu C which was delicious 😋
Food was cold due to staggered arrival and air con made the food cold in minutes. Expensive menu too
We visited Orient as part of my husband's birthday weekend in London. I found it after looking at reviews on Trip Advisor, and goodness me, we weren't disappointed! From the very first moment we were greeted at the door, the service was exception and we didn't have to wait for anything. We had a set menu for £24 per person and there was so much food, we couldn't eat it all! It was all piping hot, fresh and very tasty! The prosecco was also a very reasonable price and very, very cold, which was lovely! We would have no hesitation in returning to Orient or recommending it to our friends.
Best Chinese iv been to so far. Great portion sizes and good value for money
