A great Chinese restaurant located in the centre of Northampton. Stayed in town on a Monday night & was looking for somewhere to eat. Looked at reviews on trip advisor & found this local restaurant. The restaurant was clean & the staff friendly so a good start. The restaurant was busy for a Monday night and as the evening went... More

Walking into the Oriental Garden......it was full and sounded as noisy as any place in Singapore or Hiong Kong.......very good! Food was very good, good quality and far too much! Service was great and waitresses were very helpful over and above... More

I love this place. Whether it's for lunch or dinner. The Dim Sum is excellent and on the a la carte menu there is excellent choice for vegetarians. It is a little pricey in the evenings, but then you get what you pay for. My only gripe is the service can be hit and miss.

I lived in Hong Kong for 5 years and really miss the food but I'm so relieved to have found this place. I saw the dimsum menu on their website and couldn't believe how real it looked. ...including the chickens feet! I went with a Hong Kong friend and we both loved the food and another friend and his Chinese... More

I visited Oriental Garden with some friends last month for the buffet lunch and we were all pleasantly surprised by how tasty and fresh the food was. As it is made to order, the food came out freshly prepared and there was plenty of it! As students it was a bit pricier than we would normally go for, but the... More

We were on a weekend trip to Silverstone but were staying in Northampton and came across this restaurant. We chose this restaurant for the first evening as for a start it looked the cleanest and was nice inside compared to most other restaurants/ bars in this area!! We were greeted and welcomed by the owner who could not do enough... More

We visited this restaurant on a Saturday evening when they were not busy and ordered from the Chinese menu. We ordered 6 dishes and all were extremely bland despite one of them being Kung Po King Prawns which we have eaten loads of times at other restaurants and they have always been spicy and lightly battered. These were not battered... More

Been here a dozen or so times to start the evening out with a meal. Friendly staff meet us as we walk in. We aren't adventurous enough to have the Chinese menu so stick to the safe western style Chinese buffet. Mixed starters, followed by crispy duck. Then it's sweet n sour chicken, fried rice, noodles & a beef curry...... More

Coming from an Oriental background. Average is all I expected and that's what I got. Service was generally better than average. Food was average. Overall very average but the value is good really. For most people, I'd say this would be above average so try it.
