We love this place although we only have a Chinese once in a blue moon these days. We have tried all the local Chinese takeaways around here and here just seemed to taste the best with the same things we ordered. Always recommend this place to friends who are looking for a cheeky Chinese.

Had a takeaway from here a couple of times now as a big group due to suggestion (never have chosen it if just me and my partner) have tried 3 vegetarian dishes and each and every one has been bland. You couldn’t really differentiate a difference between any of them. Just an orange sticky sauce and the satay wasn’t peanutty or have a kick at all. The vegetable spring rolls were just mush inside.... and having asked for “salt & peppered or chilli salt” chips which we get from another local Chinese.... we got given a normal bag of chips with a sprinkling of normal ground salt and pepper in the bag. Can’t speak for the meat..... but everything I had including the rice and noodles also was bland.

Chose on recommendation of owner of apartment we are staying in. Worst Chinese we've ever had. It gets two stars for the ok soup, excellent ribs and chicken balls. BUT oh dear, the rest. The mains of duck chow mein, char siu with ginger and spring onion and house special fried rice were incredible in their inedibleness. Huge chunks of ginger, flabby, tasteless pork (not char siu), overcooked rice with loads of SPAM or the like in it and awful boiled tasting bland duck attached to gloopy skin. Most of meal was dispatched into the bin. Oh, and delivery woman was quite rude and I would like my tip back please!

We ordered a takeaway from here on NYE while staying in Crantock. Despite not being in Newquay, it took just over half an hour for our food to be made & delivered to us. The food was tasty & in large quantities - only order one bag of prawn crackers (they’re huge!). The delivery charge wasn’t too steep either (£5), so made for a reasonably priced & enjoyable takeaway overall.

After looking for the best Chinese in the area, we decided to order a takeaway from The Orient as it was more convenient to park and collect.

The lady on the phone was very friendly and repeated my order back to check it was ok. It was only 15/20 minutes to wait as well.

Prices are very good for the portion sizes. The food was very very good. We had Salt & Pepper Chilli Chicken which was fresh and really tasty. Sauces and rices also very nice.

This takeaway has moved now and is based at the bottom of Newquay town next to the train station.

Reviews seem to be very mixed, but based on my visit I would highly recommend. Very good food and a very friendly service.
