“A WHEELCHAIR USERS PERSPECTIVE”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

A good chinese meal is one of our favourite treats. The Orient in Nequay is very easy to find and has limited parking at the front of the restaurant. My wife is quite severely disabled so parking is quite a crucial aspect to our choices of venue. When we visited the Orient, we were lucky and one parking slot was available - had it not been, it appeared that no other parking was close by as this establishment is located outside of the main town and on a main road. Having resolved the parking problem, access to the restaurant proved to be quite tricky. A small step through the front door was difficult eough and we had to enter backwards (nothing unusual there), but large plants had been placed immediately inside the door and they had to be moved for us to be able to enter. Thereafter, access was OK - level throughout with several tables that accept a wheelchair with plenty of space to manouver. There is not a disabled toilet on the premises and the only available loo necessitated a single step - not possible for my wife. This might seem minor to most, but this restricts the amount we can drink and how long we can stay on site. Moving on to the food and general atmosphere. The food was great. Plenty of choice for me and my wife who is a strict vegetarian. The food was served hot and plenty of it. The staff were great - very friendly and attentive throughout our visit. A very good venue and with minor adaptions would rate very highly I'm sure for disabled patrons.

“Lovely food, lovely service”

We've always enjoyed our food at the Orient. Jessica does a great job. We've sat in and had takeaways and the quality has always been superb.

“our 2nd visit.. still brilliant!!”
Reviewed September 15, 2012 via mobile

Since we had a lovely meal last time, we visited The Orient again while we were in Newquay in September.
Once again, the meal was superb! Both our starter and main meal were cooked to perfection! Their portions were so generous that we only managed to finish 2/3 of our dinner, but the waitress offered to pack the left over so we could have it the next day.
Service was excellent, the Manageress remembered us from our last visit and spared time talking to us even they were pretty busy!
Overall, it was another wonderful evening at The Orient! If you are looking for a great Chinese restaurant with friendly service in Newquay, my recommendation to you is definitely The Wonderful Orient!

“Great Food”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

Visited The Orient on a quiet Monday evening. Had driven past it a couple of times and gave it a go as it saved driving into and parking in the centre of Newquay.

Both the food and service was excellent. Portion sizes are good and food fresh and tasty. Really enjoyed the Satay Chicken. Would definitely visit again if in the area and recommend to others.
