La Orient really comes up trumps time after time. I've lived in this area for 22 years and have never been disappointed with the delicious food they serve. Perfect evening, La Orient take away!

Friendly, attentive, but not obtrusive staff, kitchen staff fully versed in the Chinese regional cuisines we prefer. We go for lunch during the week, when the restaurant is usually quiet, but do not doubt that the staff would be able to deal briskly and efficiently when the place is busy.

Great menu, fair price, terrific quality. It really. U.S. worth the trip to sit in or collect when compared to all the usual takeaways. We live in walton but it's worth the short trip every time. If you are simply looking for a very good chinese you won't be disappointed.

We've been going to La Orient for many years. It's always busy & buzzing and the food is excellent. Stella and her staff are friendly and attentive. I would thoroughly recommend it.

We eat here about twice a month! We are never disappointed with the food or the friendliness of the staff and management and because it is busy there is a great atmosphere.

We have been going here for many years and have known David and his team more or less from when it opened. Stella has been an excellent head waitress/manager for many years too and the food operation runs like clockwork. La Orient is generally very busy at weekends so essential that you book and during the week you can generally... More

This is a pleasant place offering a different option to traditional Sunday lunch. A great selection is offered at the buffet table, attentive and friendly service, and also busy with a lively atmosphere. The food is always delicious here and it has to be one of my favourite Chinese restaurants.

We went here last weekend with some friends for a pre Christmas meal. We weren't disappointed. A very varied menu from all Asian countries. Can recommend a visit.

We have visited this restaurant many times and always found the food to be very well cooked and the service first class. A party of four, we had one of the set meals for £22.00 per head. This gave us hors d'ouevres, followed by crispy duck and finally six dishes for the main course, one prawn, one chicken, one pork... More
