The food here is always good, fresh and they can add more spice if you want. The only thing is they precook the chicken and it is over cooked. This a new as they never use to over cook. The salt and pepper ribs are good. The chicken curry is always a winner. They need to dim the lights. its... read more

I don't think you will find a better place for crispy duck. Really good. Excellent service as well. £25.70 for half a duck with 2 beers and includes service charge.

We used to go to this restaurant a lot couple of years ago. Food always was pretty average but fairly priced and attentive service. Unfortunately on our last visit everything went wrong. We needed to send our food twice back as for us it was unedible, poor quality and ingredients. Rude staff and not as good value for money as... More

A group of us went for dinner at La Orient (bizarre name as its a Chinese!). The food was pretty average but the service quick if not the friendliest. We had a great night but that was more due to the company than the restaurant to be honest.

Had a takeaway from here, several weeks back. Waited for the order to be prepared, which took a quick 20 minutes (restaurant was full of diners at the time), and the food was very good indeed. Staff were attentive and friendly. Would return either for a takeaway, or even eating in.'

We were a party of 4 who went for dinner on Sunday evening. Once we had placed our orders the starters came within the expected timelines. We had to wait for over an hour after that for our main course. There was no updates from anyone to tell us how long the main course was going to be and obviously... More

I have been to this restaurant so many times but it never gets dull! I very much recommend the Sunday Buffet as that is brilliant. It has the best Chinese food I have ever tasted and good value especially if you go up as many times as I do!!!
