“Good sushi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2012 via mobile

Love this for dinner out - sushi is always a treat, other items tasty as well. Never any complaints with food.
However - the lighting and interior really bother me .. Decor is just not fitting for such good food. Parking is a bit of a problem on weekends but again - best sushi in town at a price we can afford order a few rolls to share and try new things. Really love updated menu. Other menu items have never disappointed as well. I just wish I could not have a 60 watt lightbulb hanging in my face while i ear. Could be a much better night out if it lost the Denny's type atmosphere

“Great food, better value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

Oriental Express has a menu which represents Japanese, Chinese, Korean and Thai. The food at Oriental Express is a very good value for your money. They have a full service Sushi bar and after ordering four items off the menu it shows the chef has the proper training and has passion to make the Sushi correctly. They have the normal types, for example California Rolls, but they have as well a Mexican roll. If you are of Asian decent or have lived in Asian, ask for the Galbi it is very tasty. The service is fast, and this is a sister restaurant to the original in Lawrence. If you are a person who wants the original non sugared down version of the dishes ask the service staff they will be happy to help to make it more authentic.

“Neigborhood Oriental Cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2012

We consider the Oriental Express a neigborhood cafe and eat there often. The lunch menu is the best deal for your money.
The cafe is located in a bulding that use to be a convience store. There is just enough parking outside and the interior is nice. Nothing fancy but nice. The service is good, the speed which the food arrives is great, the tast is worth returning for, and the pice is very reasonable.
We have never had a bad meal. Highly recommend.
They also have delivery and take out. We have never used either. Regularly we see customers coming in to PU orders so it does appear a popular option.
