We book a table for 4 for 7-30 arrived at 7 -20 given our table menus left on table we...all look waited till 7-45 to take order which was fine but had to wait till 8-20 for the starters to come out 2 were wrong and one was cold then we had to wait for the main meal an wait ended up going up to look for our meals only to get them a few minutes later and they were cold it was the worse meal I have ever had anywhere it was such a disappointment it was for our daughter birthday and the staff at the counter could do with a little respect for customer talking to one another not looking after their customers have to say wont be back Regards Marie QuinnMore

I visited the Oriental at about 10.45 one evening as every restaurant was closed (except for fast food options like Supermacs or McDonalds), but I wanted a real meal. I had honey ribs and Cantonese duck with rice. Was given some complimentary prawn crackers to...start. Both dishes were fairly tasty and I also got served promptly and the staff were pleasant and efficient. Its a little pricey but no other issues.More

I have little to say about this place. The food was the usual Chinese fare. Nothing special. Staff were alright, again, won't be winning any awards. Prices a little on the high side for what we got. Decor is fine, appeared nice and clean.

This is a good restaurant as Chinese goes. The early bird had a good choice, ribs tender and juicy, excellent piping hot soup, chicken satay fresh and full of nutty flavour as it should be. Overall, hot fresh food, good service, Emma very friendly and...made big effort to make the meal an event and she succeeded. Worth a visitMore

Was here about two weeks ago with friends on a thursday eve. My friends had kids as we walked in the kids wanted to sit at their own table which was right beside us we were told NO in a rude manner. we ordered our...food which was nice but in the middle of eating the stared sweeping up underneath our feet. then as we were paying we looked to speak to a manger and was told no manger here today manger is away on holiday. i recognised one of the girls behind the counter she was a girl that worked in the jade in chinese in tullamore (last time i ate in the jade inn chinese the chicken was sour and complaint about it) so as i was walking out the door of the oriental new star she turned and said i always complain. the staff here are the worst i have ever came across in a chinese and i think that's because the have hired that lady from the jade inn.More

Not the best decor or atmosphere but a great chef. I have eaten there several times. Take away often recommend satay skewers and fillet beef. Not the rubbery stuff you get in most chinese restaurants. A bit greedy in charging for little extras such as...ordering a dish with extra onions. Access a bit awkward for wheelchair but not impossible. Best surroundings chinese is Canton Regent. Also great food in jade high st. Best curry is the village chinese. Best fillet beef in the town is village also. Sorry I digress!More

This is a somewhat typical Chinese restaurant but it has a very extensive and varied menu. The service was prompt and professional and the food was brought out right away and was uniformly of high quality. The seating is comfortable and the noise level low...so that conversation was possible without shouting at one another. We will return when in the area.More
