I would definitely not recommend the sushi takeaway at orient. It was very expensive, small portion, and tasted very ordinary. Any other sushi place in Ålesund is better.

We ordered the 'Orient special', which is 6 different dishes. All the dishes came together in a big plate, so at the end the last tasted dishes were cold... The food was ok, the waitress was nice. But the price was too high for what we got. The quantity was ok. But the dishes were nothing really special. Would have... More

This restaurant has been in Aalesund for a while, and I visit from time to time. Tried the mixed grill last week. I was disappointed. This was simply not good enough for a recommended signature dish. Nothing seemed really fresh and crispy and the sauces was just ok. Would not recommend this dish. Restaurant is japanese/chinese and hopefully the japanese... More

The tourist center recommended us this restaurant. They have an impressive menu. We tried sushi, which turned out to be fresh and delightful. My friends ordered their specialty orient special and it was surprisingly good. The dish had spring roll, duck, seafood, beef, lamb...A lot of food with tasteful sauces. Didn't expect this quality in a small town like Alesund.... More

This is our favourite place when we are dining out in town. Our whole family loves their Sunday buffet with a lot of hot dishes and our favourite sushi, for a relatively low price. They have also a big and exicting a la carte menu. My favourites are Tom yum with prawns, lamb shank... big portions too. Only one thing,... More

Picked this restaurant after checking tripadvisor reviews. We are happy to share our dinner experience. The smiling waitress recommended Szechuan mala wok with duck, prawns and chicken. It was really tasty and spicy! My husband tried mixed grill with prawn and chicken skewers, lamb, salmon... a lot of food. Presentation was as good as the taste. Quite a lot of... More

Good food. Fresh, tasty and quick on the table after ordering. No sad faces when the drinks are only water. Was there twice. Had the seafood udon and the next time I had the Macau spareribs. Good food for a good price. I will certainly return.

The restaurant was nice, we got a table towards the back of the restaurant where it was nice and quiet. The food was not bad, but unfortunately, it was served lukewarm and as we had choosen a dish consisting of a variety of dishes, all served at the same time, the food got cold before we could eat it.
