Food very nice although Chinese restaurants always offer quite a limited choice for vegetarians. Not complaining though as the same choice as my usual. Staff very professional when taking my order and pleasant when I picked it up. I would come here again.

We had an excellent meal. Everything was fresh, unlike some Chinese restaurants, where the prawn crackers are soft & stale, these were light & crispy. Everything was superb. The staff were very obliging & friendly. This was a birthday treat & the staff decorated the table with balloons. Highly recommended.

I've been to the orient three times every time I visit newquay, and also had takeaway. The food has always been delicious and very good value! The staff are very knowledgeable and made me food special to order. Better than any Chinese I've had before!!

Off the main road into Newquay you might drive past the Orient, your mistake, this is the best Chinese food in the area. I have been here several times in the past few years with friends and the standard of food is always great. The restaurant has recently been awarded 5 stars for hygiene,
