Reliably good food and personable service. A neighbourhood favourite. Great for after a long week of work and quick dining at home. Time to catch up with the family without having to fret about dinner.

We ordered food for pick up. When we arrived at the restaurant to pick up our food we had to wait. It seemed like something was up because we could hear the waitress talking to someone on the phone about a mixed up order. We saw a man arrive with a bag of chinese food. He gave it to the waitress. She took it and opened the bag. She then brought the food to us. The food had left the restaurant and she wanted to give it to us. We refused to take it so she said she would see if they could cook new food. When we got home with the food it was terrible. The worst chinese food I have ever eaten. Small portions and poor quality. If you like chinese food avoid this place.

Wasn't sure how to point out that the photgraph shown on this page is misleading-- the pictured dining room is in fact the Seagrille Restaurant at the Brentwood Bay Lodge and Spa.

Well I read over the other two reviews, and I'd have to say I disagree. I found it to be a charming little restaurant, fast, cheap and yummy. I really liked their ginger beef, as well as the house chow mein. My family all liked it a lot as well, it was a nice place with good food.

If the Malahat is closed, and you're in the ferry line-up in the late afternoon or evening, you have two choices for food. The Lodge and Spa, good food at pretty high prices, and every chance you'll miss the ferry (VERY slow service) or the Orient, which is the dead opposite. So-so food (at best), cheap prices, and very fast service. You can sit down, order, eat, and be out in 30 minutes. If you're looking for Chinese food in Brentwood Bay, don't. Drive five minutes to Saanichton, where there are two better Chinese places, including a buffet style that will give you more food than you need for $18.
