“Really excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

We were in Newquay for a holiday and stopped for a family meal not really expecting anything fancy but everything we had from the starters, the duck to our main meals left us saying "that was really nice"

“superb take away meal..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

We used their take away service when we were in Newquay last September and the whole family thoroughly enjoyed out take away meal, so we decided to ordered again from The Orient.
There were 5 of us, so we decided to go for their set dinner for 5. We especially enjoyed their duck with pancakes, spare ribs and young chow fried rice, absolutely lip-licking good. The portion was so generous that we could save some for the next day. What make it even better? They are currently doing a wine offer for order over £40, so we got a complementary bottle of red to go with our meal, BRILLIANT!!
The only down side its the waiting time, as we didnt call up in advance for our order, we waited there for 30 mins. their bar is open for take away customers, so we got ourselves some cheeky drinks while waiting.
All in all, it definitely worths the wait!

Thank you for using our take away service! I am sorry about the wait on your take away, it has been a very busy Easter weekend for us in the restaurant as well as take away. Once again, we are sorry that we let you down on our time keeping and thats something our management team will look into for the future!
Thank you for your reviews, we hope to welcome you again in the near future!

“My experience of eating food from the Orient, Newquay, Cornwall”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

I ordered a take-away from the Orient on Saturday, 24 March 2013. I was delivered very quickly by taxi and the order was correct.

I started with Crab and Sweetcorn soup which was delicious and didn't need re-heating. It was very flavoursome and there was a generous portion of crab.

Next came the spare-ribs which again "hit the spot" and was sticky, sweet, tender and beautifully flavoured a real treat.

I then tried the chicken curry with special fried rice. This was a bit of a let down as the chicken was stringy and not too tender but the big disappointment was the curry sauce. Overall it was somewhat bland and I thought the sauce lacked salt,maybe a liitle sugar and need a tad more spiciness, sorry but the Tai Sing in Newquay beats the Orient hands down for it's curry sauce. The special fried rice however, was sublime and a delight and this was the highlight of my meal. The order taking and efficiency of delivery was impressive and the only let down was tge curry which was poor.
