I always make it a point to have dinner here while in Denver, great little family run asian restaurant. The owner/chef occasionally and on special request does a sugar and spiced battered fried lobster, hes did it with shrimp on this last visit and it was phenomenal. Never a complaint!

All of the food tasted exceptionally fresh and well prepared. Very tasty. I had the shrimp and scallops in garlic sauce. The shrimp and scallops were large and perfectly done and the vegetables were all very fresh tasting.

My first dining experience in Denver and I was hooked. The owners are gracious and accommodating and the food is wonderful. Order off the "Specials" list and you can't go wrong. Finish off with fried plantains with peach ice cream and a Vietnamese coffee and you can't help but come back. Over and over again.

I have been eating there since 1991. Best restaurant in Denver metro. I bring representatives from large investment firms there when they are in town. On there next visits they request to go back to that great restaurant. Great food and service.

Have been eating here for over 10 years. We're stuck on the same thing - two mushroom beef and honey/sesame halibut, but now we're in the Lobster Club - every few months they fly in lobster for Chef Tien's famous "I don't know how he makes it" lobster feast - the whole lobster is coated in a secret topping that...

I wish I had known about New Orient Restaurant 30 years ago. It is gourmet Asian food with a French Twist. The food is inventive and consistantly good. The owners are friendly, kind and welcoming.

The owners (husband and wife) are great and make you feel at home. I've ordered a few dishes off their regular menu and I think its just average. However, order from their special menu and your tummy will thank you. They offer this lobster special, which is divine, but you can only get it on special occasions when they have... More

So Annie and Tien run a great restaurant! This is our favorite Vietnamese in the Denver Metro area --It's a really long drive and it's ALWAYS worth it! We love the Lemon Grass Special and Pork Kabobs, but we've never had a bad meal here. Ask to get put on the lobster special call list--it's a spectacular holiday meal!

We've been going to this restaurant for decades. Same owner. Same chef for many of those years. My kids loved it when they were children and still love it today. The sauces are a combination of Asian and French. The Seafood is fresh. The meats in unique sauces are tasty. Even the old standard Moo Shu Pork is uniquely tasty... More
