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!!!

It was our first time here and the food was nice with generous portions. Prices also reasonable. The real let down was service. The staff were lovely, but we waited 25 minutes or more for our starter and again quite a wait for our mains and the bill. Despite this, we still had a enjoyable meal.

Definitely going back, I was very impressed with everything and the evening was made to be really special. The restaurant was very clean, spacious, modern and very popular as it was full. The staff were very busy, on the ball, very polite and exceptional. The manager ran a tight ship and should be proud of his staff. Well!!!... The food... More

We've recently moved to the area and in search of a good Chinese restaurant, tried La Orient. It was packed and the staff were polite and attentive, but the food was awful! It tasted like food cooked 2 days ago and warmed in a microwave. The only thing that was fresh was the tea...Seems that we are going to have... More

Me and 2 friends ordered the set menu A for £20 a head. The food they brought out did not seem enough. We have eaten here before and could spend well below £20 each for a lot more food each. Including drinks the bill came to £80 and was automatically marked up to £88 with the 10% tip. As the... More

I've visited La Orient many times including last Friday. The food is consistently good and served by an efficient waiting staff. I rarely see an empty table which is the best sign that they are doing something right but it also means you should make sure you book particularly at the weekend. My only criticism is that the décor is... More

It seems to me that Takeways apart Chinese Restsurants have diminished in number which might explain why good Chinese Restaurants have become scarce and therefore, perhaps very popular. Oddly Esher boasts not just one but two! As a brief aside leaving reviews leave many wondering whether they should attain literary heights fearing that their experience might just be a bland...
