The best Chinese restaurant in Newquay

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,

Was recommended to the Orient by a friend... And boy did it not disappoint! Very rarely do we go out for Chinese as it always seems too greasy, but I have to admit this is one of the best Chinese restaurants we have been to. The manager Jessica was fantastic, extremely attentive and very friendly, we even had a nice... More
