Best chinese in Esher

I have been going to La Orient for nigh on 20 years and that in itself tells you all you need to know. They have fought off all competition and although not cheap their quality makes them good value for money. Also as a wheelchair user the staff are unfailingly polite and accommodating.

Visited on a Sandown race weekend and it didn't disappoint. Food/service/cost were all very good. Nice location too with a pub next door for a pre-meal drink. Highly recommend.

The food here never disappoints & the quality is always spot on! I just felt yesterday that when I went there for dinner, that we were rushed to order & to finish eating quickly, even though the restaurant was half full.

We recently celebrated my husbands 50th birthday here, we were a large group so it was wonderful that they had a huge round table to seat us around. We choose the set menu, which was plentiful, varied and delicious. We added some soft crab on a recommendation which was amazing. Very attentive staff, excellent service and friendly. A lovely evening... More

La Orient is a very up market Chinese. Offering fantastic food from the Far East. Very busy always a good sign. Staff were helpful without being in your face. It's not cheap but definitely worth a visit! Yes I would go back!

La Orient, a slightly confusing name I thought; offers South East Asian cuisine that probably leans towards Vietnamese. This now well established restaurant, in it's 25 year is in the middle of Esher, with much competition from similar restaurants. However I was invited on 4th June and with my wife to make up a table of 12. Already on the... More

On a lovely evening it was decided that a family meal in Esher was necessary and so we left home heading for a nice brasserie owned by a national chain. As luck would have it, we had to park a little further away than was desirable, but that necessitated our passing the front door of La Orient. We were initially... More

We were intending to go to another local restaurant and not being local Esher residents parked in the wrong car park so started walking towards our previous destinations. We spotted the restaurant and sparked a small family debate “do you fancy a Chinese instead?” Our previous Chinese has recently changed hands and lost a lot of its magic so we... More

This restaurant is on our doorstep so I go there relatively frequently. It is always busy, which says a fair bit although the area has many busy restaurants... The food is to a consistent standard and service usually good although can be a little patchy when the place is super busy. There is a wide choice of dishes however invariably... More
