This restaurant has now closed. Went with a group of friends last Friday and was incredibly underwhelmed by both the food and service. I think they were just not interested knowing the place was closing after the New Year. Such a shame really as we've had good meals and service here before.

After hearing good things, we went here as a couple for a birthday meal. Wish we hadn't! The fish starter was low quality, not real crab as described. They messed up the veggie main. The beef main had to be sent back, the meat was so tough it was inedible. Staff were unhelpful and seemed to try and avoid accepting... More

Enjoyed a 2 course lunch with good coffee here last Saturday lunchtime. All was delicious and presented well. Excellent value.

We frequently pop into the Oriental Express for a quick, spicy lunch and it never fails to be excellent. There's much more on offer than the standard pan-Asian fare, including inventive but authentic noodle dishes. Ideal for both ladies-who-lunch (of either gender...) or those with heartier appetites, as you can just have a light starter or pig-out on more substantial... More

My husband and I went to the Orient Express for a lovely lunchtime treat to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We received a pleasant and warm welcome, the restaurant had a great atmosphere and the food was absolutely fantastic! We decided to try a different starter each - my husband had the Japanese Platter and I tried the Duck Spring Rolls... More

I tried my friend to lunch on a Saturday at the Orient Express. Both of us haven't eaten here before and were not too impressed with the outside but changed our views once inside. We ordered starters and main courses both of which were fab - service was very good. There was one member of staff waiting on us and... More

Sadly closed recently but never enjoyed an evening out as much as some here. Sorely missed. I would highly recommend the Thai Barn instead which is run by the same couple and offers a menu with similar options as well as an extended Thai only part. The owners are knowledgeable and welcoming.

The food is superb, the staff are friendly and helpful and the ambience is very relaxed. The menu is wide-ranging, with Vietnamese, Japanese and Thai dishes. Having been there a few times now, everything we have tried has been absolutely top notch. We can (and do) totally recommend the Orient Express.

What a gem - this restaurant truly saved our one night stay at the Riverside Inn (avoid staying / eating at the Riverside at all costs). The food is clearly freshly prepared and cooked, well presented and absolutely delicious. The place itself is a fabulous mix of old style building and modern decor, and is completely spotless. Service was fantastic;... More

Just been to Orient Express in Bridge Street, Bradford on Avon, and it was FABULOUS. Great, great food, very friendly staff and nice atmosphere. What a great way to end our stay in this beautiful part of the World. Norman Webb, Essex
