We enjoyed a great Asian buffet at the Oriental Express. My wife ate Indian, while I tried the Chinese fare. There was a good variety and each dish was well-cooked, flavoursome and kept nicely warm in the heated buffet. The staff were friendly and helpful - when I asked for jasmine blossom tea I was offered tea made from teabags... More

I love this restaurant, it is special enough for occasions yet casual enough for a quick treat. It is always very popular and full, I personally prefer to catch it on a quiet night as it can be a bit of a wait for a seat otherwise, but still worth it. There is a large choice of food so will...

As a fan of Chinese food I am disappointed I have tired it now on 3 different occasions just to see if it was a one off. The hygiene in this establishment is discussing tables sticky and when you do see the staff cleaning tables it's more of a tickle than a wipe. Hairs in the food as they have... More

The staff and management took really good care of us. The age range from 5yrs to 71yrs was catered for. The coped admirably with noisy over excited children. The food was excellent value for money and the range of choice extensive. We had a wonderful evening.

Really good selection of Chinese starters and mains. Some of it was slightly greasy and looked as if it had been sat out a while. could not fault it for the price and may have been better if we had gone at a more busier time. Great icecream

Yes this restaurant is fine for families as it is good value, no frills all you can eat and down to earth. It is noisy, the wooden floor and wooden chairs really grate. It is not suitable for a romantic meal for two. The food is good, reasonably hot, great variety from chinese to indian to sausage and chips. unlimited... More

I have been a few times in last couple of months. The food is good and well stocked. We love the Ice cream. For £7 at lunch and £5 for pensioners you can't beat it for value. Nice views of boating lake

We were so looking forward to returning to 'Oriental Express' we have visited six years ago, great memories of great food, but returned on the 15th September and was bitterly disappointed. It wasn't very busy so we have to assume that the food had dried up! ....too much choice to offer perfect chinese and indian food when not busy. The... More
