TASTE OF THE ORIENT

Four of us after much deliberation selected eight dishes in a very democratic fashion. This took us quite a while for there was such a wonderful selection on the menu. The food was as expected and quite delicious. I shall be back to have a go at some of the more unusual didhes.

Friendly and consistent. Decent food, delivered with solid friendly service in a fairly informal manner that welcomes children. Food is good, not exceptional but delivers above average that represents better value than Good Earth, but less of an experience. Visited on a Saturday night, with kids, was busy but turnaround times were good enough. Steady, consistent, nicer to eat in... More

This restaurant is always a pleasure to dine in. Fantastic food, service and prices. Great for couples, families or a dinner out with friends. Could not fault anything. Sunday buffet is particularly good!

A great meal out for my boyfriends dinner. There was still an atmosphere when we went on a Monday night. We had the rose prosecco which was lovely and dry. For food we had the set menu and they were happy to change the soup for ribs. The food was so delicious. A great Chinese meal and lovely restaurant.

Returned to get a takeaway from this restaurant, on the day of the Surrey/London Cycle race. Last time, the food was very good - on this occasion, it was truly exceptional throughout the dishes ordered. The Prawns with chilli and garlic were fantastic, as were the Veg spring rolls, veg Singapore noodles, the tempura vegetables. An absolutely fantastic meal, and... More

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
