“I believe this is the only chinese delivery in joplin...”
Review of Orient Express

Orient Express
Ranked #35 of 234 Restaurants in Joplin
Cuisines: Asian
Restaurant details
Reviewed 30 November 2013

The food is excellent, and so far as I know, this is one of only a few actual restaurants left that aren't strictly mass prepared and buffet. Carry out is always fresh and tasty and their delivery is one of the few options available that isn't pizza.

Given a choice of leaving a hotel and going to the restaurant strip in joplin and eating at one of the local rangeline road eateries or ordering delivery from Orient Express, I'd have a night in have their kung pao.

This carryout Chinese food joint is my favorite in Joplin. Living there for several years, I have frequently had their food at home as well as at school. The location is about a block away from the area high school and some students and teachers will get lunch here, there was even a lunch event I attended at the school where the food came from Orient Express.

I love everything about the food here. The egg rolls are the best I have ever had, the rice is perfect, the oyster sauce is delicious (so long as you don't chug it) and the chicken is superb.

I would also like to say that the fish painted on the side of the building are very pretty.

I have been ordering from Oriental Express for about 7 years now and have never had a bad meal from them. There food is not only delicious, but it is ready for pickup within 10 minutes of ordering. It is the perfect option for good Chinese food fast during your lunch break!

I went to Orient Express, and they did not put my order in the proper container and it leaked out all into the take our bag which leaked all over my car seat and the floor board. I called to tell them this had happened to me, and they claimed that I probably was driving to fast and that my order was fine when I left. This made me upset, because I could not understand their logic and lack of concern. The manager hung up on me and I called back really upset because now the sauce was leaking all over the place. I could not eat my lunch because the forks and napkins were soaked and it was a mess. She told me she was going to call my supervisor at work and file charges for harassment against me. I told my supervisor at work of the situation, and she said that she would not order from them for large groups anymore at our company for the same reason. All the bags were soaked in sauce and they could not eat. I can't believe she illegally invaded my privacy because I had on my work badge and threatened to call me work. I got a call later from the Joplin police stating never to go there again. I told the officer NO PROBLEM! I won't be going there and neither will my group. BEWARE!!! If you do order from them make them put your stuff in the original boxed carry outs with the handle and not a foam container that they put lunch specials in. You think they would get a clue by now.
