Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I decided to take my son and daughter for a meal, we were seated and offered drinks, mine was a pink gin and served in a half pint glass. Really!! We ordered starters that were average and a waitress came over to take our mains....She had the most disgusting attitude and was so impatient, my son started to order and after ordering a side and 1 main she said is that it and slamming her arms down as if we were an inconvenience to her, I looked at her and she laughed in my face, I was speechless. We all looked at each other and I asked her to get someone else to take our order. She stomped off. In total shock I asked the mgr to have a private word. Explaining to him what happened, his reply was shes been here a year and is like this, bad attitude. I said I'm happy to pay for what we had 1 gin, 4 cokes and 2 starters. I wasnt hungry anymore as I was upset. He then charges me £46.50 for the worst service and food. I'm disgusted that he even had the nerve to charge me, we were in there 25 mins and the starters were below average. Will not recommend this restaurant and will not return if it was the last place to eat out in Brentwood. Food: 1/5 | Service: 1/5 | Atmosphere: 1/5More

We booked a table for 9 for our son’s 18th birthday . Hadn’t been to this restaurant for a few years and not since they introduced the all you can eat offer. Being able to order exactly what you want from the table and not...choose from a pre prepared buffet was amazing. The food was delicious and plentiful as was the service too from delightful and attentive waiting staff who I wish we’d got the names of. Thank you Eastern Oriental for a lovely evening .

Lovely food… BUT… Refused to be allowed to take some leftovers home. This was not an untouched dish but a mixture of food, put together that was left over. Told you cannot take food home, and it will be thrown in the bin. Despite us...having already paid for said food. 10% service charge automatically added to bill despite terrible service by younger staff. Removing dishes whilst we was eating and even tried to take a plate someone was still eating the last mouthful from. TAX added onto drink?! £22 bottle of wine changes to £24.20, queried and told that’s TAX. Such as shame as food is nice, but the restaurant is a rip off and cons customers. Do not bother attending, save your money and go somewhere else.More

Three of us visited this Chinese restaurant, in Brentwood High Street, on Thursday 26th October. We arrived early evening and although we had not booked we were show to a table immediately. We opted for the fixed price buffet menu - and at £23.90 this...was great value. We were served by 2 very pleasant and helpful waitresses, and at their suggestion we began with a mixed plate shared starter. All our food was cooked to order and was delightful. Friendly service and good value.More

Don’t get me wrong I cannot fault the food! However the service in this place is unbelievable, taking plates away when we’re still eating, rudely spoken, constantly hovering around our table, felt like we was rushed! As soon as we sat at our table we...felt rushed and as if they wanted us to leave, it wasn’t busy at all in fact there was 2 tables!! Don’t waste your time going in, get a takeaway.More

I booked at table with my elderly, disabled parents on night of 20/08/23. My father is 84 and registered disabled. When we arrived, to our shock and dismay, the waitress ushered us up a 10-12 inch high step (see photos below). Due to his disability...and age my father was unable to negotiate this. He has serious issues with his leg arteries. The drop down from this step could have proved fatal for him. Having informed the restaurant that my parents were disabled, we pointed out to them that my father was unable to climb up and down this step. The staff were completely unmoved. We asked if they had a ramp, to which they replied they did not have one. A male waiter was very unsympathetic and downright rude and arrogant. We were about to walk out when a female waitress ushered us to a table which was on one level. She had initiative. Her male colleague had none, coming across as thick as two planks. This restaurant's staff seemed completely oblivious to the law on making services accessible to disabled people. The Equality Act 2010 defines Disability and Age as Protected Characteristics. It states businesses providing services to the public are legally required to make adaptations for disabled people. This restaurant is failing to comply with this legal requirement. Why do they think they can flout Equality law? We are seriously considering reporting this lack of adaptations to the Local Authority and HSE in the interest of disabled people. The standard of service thereafter was absolutely rubbish. The staff lack friendliness, courtesy and are arrogant. The only good thing to say is that the food was good. Everything else about this restaurant was rotten. We will not be dining here again due to this bad experience. I would advise disabled people to avoid this resturant as, to it shame, it does not comply with the law on making adaptations for the disabled.More

Our visit to Eastern Oriental wasn’t good at all, despite having a good experience in the past. Firstly, a waitress asked us what we wanted for starters, we ordered, and then 3 times a different members of staff asked us if we have ordered. This...was strange in itself. Our starters were nice, however, the mains was where it got bad. When we cut into the chicken (chicken curry), the chicken was raw inside (see picture). Obviously, we sent this back and complained that this was not cooked. The waiter sent it to the chef and the chef said that the chicken was cooked and sent it back out to us!!! We were not happy at all, I went back at the waiter and said that we were not happy as it wasn’t cooked, but he just ignored me and didn’t do anything about it. The customer service during our visit was awful. To top it off, we found out a week later that 3 people got food positioning from here around the time that we visited!! There is clearly something wrong, and is putting people’s health at risk.More

First time at this restaurant, Parking is opposite the restaurant so if you go after 7pm its cheaper. I like the idea that you order your food and they cook to order so its fresh and hot. Something others have brought up in reviews is...the website and takeaway menus are out of date so everything cost more than they advertise, all you can eat is now £24.99, take note to the restaurant update your prices on the website before you put up the prices, having said that i don't think they look at there reviews as no one reply's. The food we had was very tasty and of good quality. They also offer a Ala-cart menu as well but cannot comment on this but it seems pretty much the same. Personally i cannot eat £25 worth of Chinese food so its slightly on the dear side. if you get a table near front of house it gets very busy with other people picking up there takeaway so its very noisy and not private, but i would recommend a visit to this restaurant.More
