“Terrible!”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Possibly the worst Chinese meal I have ever had.The food was so salty that it all tasted the same and some dishes felt suspiciously 'warmed up' in a microwave as they were piping hot to the point of burning yourself - not what you get when food is hot from an oven.

Duck was so shredded it was like sand. All in all, just a horrible experience. I wont be going back

“Weve been coming here for many years and its still great”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

We've used the Oriental pretty much since it opened and its always been good value and the food always good quality and well presented. Whilst we noticed the change of management (we where friendly with the original owners for many years) it didn't seem to affect the service and quality we have come to expect.

Our last trip was last month and we used a Groupon Voucher on a Saturday. I can honestly say it was as good as its ever been, food was usual high standard and service was good.

We have never had anything but good service and food here, believe me if I felt otherwise I would reflect it here - so I stand by what I have said...

“Just not the same”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Me and my boyfriend came here both having loved it in past years. But unfortunately it had changed and is not the same anymore.
Bought a groupon voucher and felt we got treated differently to others which shouldn't have been the case.
Food portion and presentation and taste had all changed.
And the staff didnt seem like they wanted to be there. A bit of a sour atmosphere. Won't be returning until I hear things have changed to the way it used to be.

“Look No further”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

if you're looking for Chinese food in Hove or Brighton.
Oriental Village has smart modern decor, an eat-as-much-as-you like of oriental "tapas", charming and attentive staff all for an extremely reasonable price. They occasionally run deals with the voucher companies, but in all honesty their product is well worth paying full price for. We have been twice and we will be back.
