A busy Saturday night, table for 4, set menu for 4. The food was very tasty, generous portions, served hot and well presented. Drinks service on the slow side but really not a major issue. Would definately eat here agin.

We often ordered takeaway from La Orient in the weekend. The foods were by far the best in and around Surrey. Salt and pepper squids, Soo Chow chicken and Chili beef are some of my favourite dishes. You will not find a better place for price and quality!

Had a takeaway from here last night and something had clearly gone wrong. The starter soo chow chicken was excellent as usual, but the main courses were a disaster. The beef in oyster sauce tasted as if the beef had been reheated, not freshly cooked and was in pieces too thick to chew. The chicken with chillie and fresh basil... More

La Orient has definitely benefitted from the competition in this small town. Having been here for over 20 years it has a loyal customer following and even in the school holidays when the population head for warmer climes La Orient is still full and buzzing with atmosphere. Recent openings probably did give it a momentary scare but their game is... More

Met the boys (4 of us) here but was disappointed in this place. Service was slow and food was average. There was a large family who were seated next to us and arrived after us, but seemed to get our food much quicker than we did. The time between courses was very slow. We ordered the set menu for 4...

Visited this restaurant with party of three a couple of saturdays ago. Restaurant was very busy and there was a significant number of takeaways being done throughout the couple of hours we were there. Overall the food was good but regrettably the service was slow probably partly to do with the number of takeaways they were dealing with. Long wait... More

A busy (always a good sign) Asian cuisine in Esher. Just dropped in without reservation and got one of the vegetables. Had the crispy fragrant duck and pork in ginger sauce with spring rolls. All seved quickly and tasted great.the best part were the prices which were imho very reasonable. Recommended.
