If you are looking for a reliable good meal that offers good value, The Orient meets your needs. The food is what you expect to find in your typical chinese restaurant with most dishes being fair to very good. Service is efficient and friendly. And,...More

This was the second Christmas day that we went to the Orient. The first time everything was OK. Christmas of 2014 was the biggest disappointment ever, ANYWHERE! This trip we could not eat any of the food that managed to get to the table. They...More

My delivery took 1.5 hours and when I got it, the sauces were pouring out the sides and the meal was cold. REALLY?? I have never had such a terrible experience with this restaurant. I had ordered sweet and sour chicken and the glaze that...More

The food here isn't bad. Considering that it is the only Chinese restaurant in the area, it could be a lot worse. The service wasn't bad either. However, none of this can make up for the distinct odor of cigarette smoke that we could smell...More

While working in Hanover for two weeks, we found it to be one of our favorite lunch spots. Food was good and reasonably priced. Service was good as well. Very good flavor for their mabo-tofu (which they call something else), a good indicator for me....More

After reading the reviews, we were somewhat confused but decided to give The Orient a try for lunch today. We were not disappointed. I had the General Tso's Chicken, my husband had the Cashew Chicken and our friend had Sautéed Broccoli in Brown Sauce with...More

Unfortunately as much as I wanted to like my food, it was BAD (FYI I'm Chinese). The chow fun was basically chow fun noodles cooked in super salty soy sauce. The pad thai (yes, I shouldn't have tried it here) was just one big hot...More

I consistently enjoy the Orient's selection and ambience. This is my comfort food: the Tangerine Chicken, the Mongolian Beef, and any Moo-Shu. Their Szechuan Won Ton appetizer is a delectable starter. If I was looking for sushi, I'd probably go to Yama's nearby. The employees...More
