Seemed like a popular eatery but lacked vegetarian options , taste and quality. There was a variety of dishes for most but some were too salty and greasy and the raw vegetables and salad appeared to be an after thought.

A party of 6 visited this establishment for a birthday meal, believing it would cater for all eating habits within the party. The restaurant floor area where the food is presented to eat on the upper deck was dirty and flies were above on the beams, the walls look tired and unclean and we witnessed a member of staff kick...

One of the highlights of the male in my family's year, is the night out at the Cleethorpes Lion's Beer Festival, followed by a walk or stagger up the road to the Oriental Express. Once more all 5 of us were delighted by the superbly cooked food on offer and what a massive range.

Good place to feed everyone quickly and fairly cheaply. Reasonable vegetarian choices. It would have been even better to have had some tofu dishes and less deep-fried stuff.

I have visited Oriental Express a few times now but unfortunately the latest experience was disappointing. The buffet was okay although they are now cooking with a too much oil for my liking. There is a great variety of food, however, it is not a good dining experience. The heat inside makes you feel uncomfortable, the restaurant is very noisy,... More
