We have been to the Oriental Kitchen many times and the food is always consistently good. The food is always cooked fresh (especially the rice) and this is an added bonus. Its a shame that there are not a lot more customers as the food is the best in Lowestoft. Just give it a try and we guarantee you will go again!

We were looking for somewhere new to eat for my Birthday and my neighbour said they had been to Oriental Kitchen and found it very good. For personal reasons we didn't eat out, but ordered the food as a take-away meal to see what the quality of food was like.

I collected the food when it was ready and was able to look around the restaurant. It isn't a massive place and so capacity may be limited but it all looked rather quaint and 'old fashioned' but in a pleasant way, with pretty décor, proper table cloths, etc. The building is effectively two properties knocked into one which actually limits the seating capacity due to the internal walls, but the restaurant looked a nice 'homely' place to eat.

The take-away took 15 minutes from ordering to being ready for collection. They offer free delivery on orders over £15 within a 3-mile radius. There is limited parking behind the restaurant, but a large pay & display car park within a few hundred yards.

The Take-Away menu differs to the restaurant menu according to their leaflet...and there is a 10% discount for collection and telephone orders Sunday to Thursday. The restaurant is closed on Tuesdays but open other days 4.30pm to 11pm.

As to the food, it was lovely. We tried a few meals we don't normally have, including mussels in honey garlic sauce (mussels served in their shells), honey BBQ ribs, special rice noodles and House Special rice...all the food was very tasty, and competitively priced, especially with the 10% discount. We also got a complementary bag of prawn crackers. One of my friends who works for the local council environmental health team said he had eaten there and found it excellent. The restaurant has a 5 rating food hygiene certificate...always good news.

Overall I can thoroughly recommend Oriental Kitchen and I am sure we will be visiting the restaurant very soon.
