Although we didn't find the food spectacular, it was fair enough, and very convenient. It was a nice change and represents another option in Brentwood Bay. We've been twice and on both occasions there was no one else in the restaurant. We'd still visit again...More

Decided to give the Orient another chance, bad idea. The food was just as terrible plus the egg rolls we ordered were empty, really, never seen anything like it before. Two of the egg rolls were totally empty while one had one beansprout in it....More

It was cheap, fast and good. Would recommend the egg rolls! I also got the solo combo B and I really liked the sweet and sour pork.

Frankly the Chinese food is better from the corner grocer. Ginger beef was hard and the sauce was just sweet 'n' sour with ginger in it.

If you want a quick, well priced meal, the Orient is a great place for traditional Canadian Chinese food. We had garlic prawns, chicken chow mein and almond chicken. All was hot and fresh and delicious. The service is great, friendly staff!

We decided to get a bite while waiting for the ferry, that was the last time we ever ate from there. I had deep-fried prawns with my lunch and that wrecked our weekend getaway. I came down with food poisoning which cancelled our plans.
