“Great food and value!”
Reviewed June 18, 2012

We have been a few times now and the food has been great everytime. However the service really so struggle to cope when it's busy but don't let put you off. The buffet is the best!!

“Return visit dissapointing”
Reviewed June 6, 2012

Some years ago the Oriental Paradise was an exceptional restaurant but was sold. Under new management standards declined to a point where i stopped using it. I checked out the reviews here as some time had elapsed and was pleased to find that it was being well rated. I chose to visit the restaurant on the basis of these reviews. What a mistake. There is nothing to recommend about this place, I would certainly not go again.

“Great food, even better price”
Reviewed May 9, 2012

The restaurant has views out over a reservoir which during the day are not great due to the number of barges and boats but in the evening is simply magical as the lights play across the water.

The food is also excellent with reasonable sized dishes covering a range of East Asian cusines available. 4 of us ate and we sampled lots of different tastes (the crispy lamb and mongloian beef are AWESOME!) and enjoyed all of them.

The only complaint was around the service which was friendly but quite slow although the atmosphere was nice and we were in no hurry so it didn't detract from the evening.

I would definitely visit again and recommend to others, by far the best Asian/Thai restaurant in the area.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed May 8, 2012

Great service, great food. It was clear that there are lots of regulars here. We dined at 6.30 and place was almost full an hour later. So best to book.
