Great evening at the orient

We visited the Orient on the last night of our holiday in Porth. There were four of us, Mom, Dad, Son (6) and Nan (80+!) Its a nice independently run Chinese restaurant. The service was quick and pleasant. The food was pretty standard Chinese fair (for a UK restaurant) but was well cooked and... read more

Have been at this restaurant many times during my military tour in Cornwall and always make a point of visiting when I'm in the area. I was disappointed with my recent visit and will not be rushing back. The décor is looking a bit run down, several of the waitresses obviously don't want to be there and, most notably, portion...

Was seeking a Chinese online - this one looked the best though the takeaway menu on the website is collection only - solution was therefore to get a local cab firm to deliver for a couple of quid . I was impressed with the food - duck pancakes were good and the dishes had plenty of meat and nice complimentary... More

We had used the Orient for a takeaway a couple of years ago when we last visited Newquay and the food was quite nice. This August we were staying near Newquay again and decided to use them again. Two of our dishes tasted almost identical despite being totally different, the chicken chow mein was made with thread noodles which were... More

Very Popular so had to wait for food but we didn't mind as this gave us time to indulge in pint . Maybe an idea to call for a reservation or to collect if you don't want to be waiting, but definatly worth waiting for .

This is the second year we have used them and they are awesome. We spent £55 as a family and got a free bottle of wine. The food tasted really good as it did last year. Parking is limited but well worth a visit.

Brilliant food. Service was excellent and the staff were very friendly. Always asked if the meal was ok and if anything else was needed. Will definitely call back.

We were on holiday in Newquay, wanted a good Chinese for one of the evenings. The Orient did not disappoint. The food is very fresh and one of the best we have had. Great value for money and the staff are very friendly.
