I had forgotten how truly awful the food here is. I won't forget again in a hurry as my stomach is still complaining. Unpalatable and greasy. Don't waste your money or the effort it takes to collect your meal.

If you are a fan of nice Chinese food and eat it regular, I wouldn't bother trying the Oriental express. Whilst there is nothing particularly wrong with the food, it just tastes ok-it certainly won't be the best Chinese takeaway you've had, It's really a...More
