The waiters are clueless... They needed 30 minutes to hand us the menus, another 20 to come get our order. All in all, it took them two hours to serve us 2 appetizers, 2 mains and a bottle of water. And they dare include a service charge directly on your bill! We booked our table in advance, I would have... More

This place is easily missed as it is in the middle of a very crowded place... but the food was so good we went there 3 times during a week.Only negative thing is that the passers by just stare at the windows, so try not to take the tables by the windows.But the food is so good and the price...

I come to this restaurant many times with a group of friends for dinner. They have delicious vegetarian food.

Was goodly surprised by the modern setting out, followed by a 5 star services for the great chinese food there. If you want to impress your friends or have a positive business dinner, go for it there.

I visited this restaurant for the 1st time and the experience was awful. Appetizer was fine so was the dessert. However the main dish was tastless and soggy. My daughter was hungry too when we got there but she did not like her dish and did not finish. I informed "discreetly" one of the waiters that we were not satisfied... More

The design of the restaurant is the only thing that worse the visit. Chicken was raw and cantonese rice was not eatable at all. The taste was plastic and tasteless. I was sure this plate is impossible to spoil, but their chef could. It was our first and definitely last visit. Will never recommend this place to anyone, great disappointment

I have eaten twice in the last two weeks at Le Grand Orient. I find it to be a very friendly place with a nice modern atmosphere. They were helpful in explaining some of the dishes and how they were prepared. The languisten was delicious and so was the steak. The frog legs were small but had plenty to eat... More

Is what my son was served in this restaurant. He had eaten a good amount before I realised it wasn't cooked on the inside. The staff didn't handle the situation very well, and offered to give him a new plate of food! We didn't pay in the end but we'll never eat there again. That aside, the decor is stylish,... More

We went to the newly opened branch in Ivandry. Deco is nice and modern. Service was friendly but confused. Asked if they served wine by the glass, they first said yes, and later came back saying no. Finally they served a glass, but then tried to charge us for the bottle. Not sure if this was deliberate. The courses were... More

The Grand Orient has now mooved to the smart residential area of Iivandry. The new restaurant is very handsome - modern, orignal decor and a pleasant courtyard. However here the good report comes to an abrupt halt. Having had one door closed in our face we attempted to enter the restaurant through another gate but had to wait while a... More
