The food was soooo fresh. A lovely selection of fresh seafood and fabulous interesting salads. There is such a wonderful choice it takes time to make a a decision what to eat first. The staff are the best I have experienced... Friendly, chatty without overtaking the conversation and are great with their suggestions on menu....they listening to you and then give some lovely choices. The whole Hayman experience was amazing.... The ambience and views are perfect.

Best restaurant, by far, at Hayman Island. We were there for 6 nights, and nothing compared with this restaurant. Service outstanding, and the food was excellent. We live in NYC and if this restaurant was in NYC, you'd have to book a month in advance to get a reservation. Try the kingfisher with Goan curry -- not your typical curry, at all.

My meal at Oriental was the best of all the terrific restaurants on Hayman. Service was great, my children were well catered for. My husband had "melt in the mouth" steak, I had a gorgeously tasty duck dish. The restaurant's outlook is a lovely garden, the ambience is great.

The mood is set as soon as you walk into this place. Gentle, unobtrusive Asian music in a Japanese garden setting. Courteous and knowledgable staff only too willing to point out the menu's most enjoyed items.
We had a crispy duck salad with sauce to die for (we actually drank the remaining sauce with a spoon after the salad was finished!), some spicy chicken skewers for entree. For main we had an incredibly tender beef cheek curry (usually beef cheek is too rich and filling but somehow the chef balanced the curry sauce to make this cut light and refreshing). We also had the sishuan chicken - an interesting addition that really tasted like pork to me, but absolutely fabulous nonetheless. The restaurant next door could learn some tips.
