Looks can be deceiving.

Don't judge this restaurant on its appearance. I never going anywhere else for Chinese food in Topeka. Great fried rice! Everything is delicious!

We recently ate at this little place that does not look attractive at all from the street, but is quite nice on the inside. The old saying "don't judge a book by its cover" really applies here. There are basic meals that are easy to order and a menu for those that are a little more experienced at the oriental... More

This restaurant is nothing special to look at but the food is tasty and portions generous. For lunch I ordered cashew chicken and it came with rice, soup and egg roll. The cost $6.50. The flavor rivaled my favorite cashew chicken ever. Great wait staff, tasty food and good value--don't pass it by because of the lack of ambiance.

The reviews were solid so I checked it out for lunch. Service was fast and friendly. Food (pad thai) was good and plenty. I was surprised at the value...Pad Thai Shrimp, fried rice, soup, and crab Rangoon plus a soda for $9.34. I will go back. I wanted to try the Sushi but I'll wait to take my wife to... More

Meet my Uncle here for supper. Wonderful food and my husband even got to try sushi for the first time. There was a lot of food but I ordered a spicy dish and it could have been spicier. We will go back and eat there again, just hopefully we can find a place to park.

Pass this place all the time and it seems to always have a crowd so we stopped for dinner one evening mid week. There weren't many there at that time but we still felt rushed like we had walked in a few minutes before closing. The waiter was not friendly at all and seemed annoyed when questioned about the menu.... More

New Menu's, very attractive. Haven't seen these type of quality menu's in this price range of a extablishment in years. We were in a bit of a hurry so we did a quick once over but did not do a detailed scan of the menu and pricing changes. We did notice larger lunch special selections. Wait staff friendly. Our experience... More

We were traveling from Omaha to Emporia and wanted to stop for Chinese. I had a sushi roll (can't remember the name) which was really good. Soups were good. My husband had the Kung Pao Chicken. He said it was okay. I tasted it and thought it could be a bit spicer. The service was so-so. The waiter seemed a... More

Love this for dinner out - sushi is always a treat, other items tasty as well. Never any complaints with food. However - the lighting and interior really bother me .. Decor is just not fitting for such good food. Parking is a bit of a problem on weekends but again - best sushi in town at a price we... More

Oriental Express has a menu which represents Japanese, Chinese, Korean and Thai. The food at Oriental Express is a very good value for your money. They have a full service Sushi bar and after ordering four items off the menu it shows the chef has the proper training and has passion to make the Sushi correctly. They have the normal... More
