We keep going back for their wonderful Malaysian dishes (my favourite is a laksa). Authentic, full of flavour and they can subsitute the meat options for veggies ones. Service is very nice, too.

The food in this restaurant is excellent, for one I just don't think you can beat the choice and the quality. The staff are very helpful. I have no complaints about this restaurant other than I wish it had parking.

By far and away the best Chinese restaurant in the area. The food and service are faultless. I've tried a good range of dishes on the menu and have never been disappointed.

The food has been consistently excellent over the years - I have been going here once a year for 15 years or so.. The vegetarian menu is extensive, the food is freshly prepared, quickly and efficiently delivered and very tasty. Service is usually very efficient. The best things on the menu are the Singapore-influenced dishes, especially anything with a coconut... More

We enjoyed our meal here very much. Menu is very extensive and all the dishes we chose were great. We loved the aubergine with salt and chilli starter. Service was friendly and efficient. Would definitely visit here again.

I have eaten here many times and the food is very good, high quality classic Chinese and reasonably priced. The service is prompt and polite. My favourite is the crispy shredded chilli beef and crispy seaweed which are very good. Also, rather than going for a stock desert I recommend you ask for the toffee apple instead. They also do...

Place: It's a large oriental restaurant. The first thing I noticed was the size of the place. It can accommodate large crowds. Service: The service was perfect. Unlike the typical stereotype, the staff were very polite and extremely attentive. Food: I'm a vegetarian and I was shocked by the amount of dishes available. My friends who were carnivores had nothing... More

I have been coming to La Orient around twice a month for a good three years. This is honestly the best chinese around. The food is of the best quality - the sauces, the duck - brilliant tasting and nowhere else like it. The noodles are thin and high-quality. Service is excellent. Consistent over theee years, friendly staff who are... More

The orient has been in Esher for as long as I can remember and during that time David the owner has always maintained a very high standard of food quality, service, very friendly staff and a very atmosphere. Very good value and a good wine list at reasonable prices, long May it remain!
