Don't let the dated look of the interior put you off. They also have a take away menu running side by side with the restaurant. We had a warm welcome for my family of 5 with pre teens on board.

On a recent visit to Dumfries we saw that the New Oriental has a buffet evening. The food was limited and some of the options had been left standing for some time. Not an experience we would wish to repeat.

After reading the reviews, we came here & had the lunchtime set menu. It was a little awkward as it was only us in the place where the staff were just pacing the room! We had the set menu - 3 courses for £6.50. My partner wanted two starters & a main instead of a puffing but was told rudely... More

This has probably the best chef in any Chinese restaurant in Scotland and I have visited many Portion sizes on takeaway meals as in the dinner for two are enough for even the hungriest person
