We come to the Orient Express for that special celebration every time we come to Byron Bay and it doesn't disappoint! Not the cheapest in town, but not to be missed!

On a recent trip to Byron bay we dined at this restaurant. The food was amazing. Lots of choice, large servings. We had dumplings of the day, crab and prawn omelette, and a chicken dish. Desserts should come with a warning, and should be shared. Service was excellent.

Went for the weekend yum cha, was very busy but they managed to fit us in after a short wait. The dishes did not take long considering the place was packed. Service was really friendly & efficient. Food was just amazing and every dish a taste sensation. Very reasonably priced for the quality of the dishes. Will be back again... More

We have been eating at Orient Express since it opened about 13 years ago but over the last year have been coming back ever more frequently as we remember why we love it so much. Whether you are coming off the beach for a light lunch, a family dinner banquet or Sunday morning yum cha it's a winner. The dishes... More

The service is friendly and welcoming. The range of dishes from lots of different Asian countries is extremely wide. The size of the serves is way bigger than normal. They give you a terrific free vegetarian dish as a welcome. The quality of food is excellent and we are sure to return and would recommend others to go.

We had dinner here not expecting too much but were very pleasantly surprised. The food was of good quality, fresh and well cooked. The service was good and friendly. The waitress suggested we order less as the servings were very generous, and she was right. Perhaps the spicing and flavours were a bit bland, but overall recommended if you want... More

Generous helpings. The night we went was my husband's birthday - we were sat down and given menus but took ages for staff to come back to us. It was a busy night but staff didnt seem to look at tables surrounding those they were serving - in the end we had to ask someone who said he'd get our... More

We enjoyed a lovely Jum Cha lunch, which consisted of each dish providing not only great variety but good portion sizes, We live in Sydney and Jum Cha is generally very boring. Finally, the staff in this place are the best. Cannot wait to come again.
