“If it wasn't a work do I wouldn't go!”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

Was a belated Christmas dinner for the work crew..
Service isn't that flash, although to be fair the girl was a TAFE student on work placement - unfortunately for her getting very little support.

Meal was the multi-dish for about 14 people...
Some arrived early, some late meaning the party was disjointed.

The meat wasn't the nicest and the overall food was mediocre. The service felt like it was "get them sorted and out of here"

The restaurant is dated and doesn't present as particularly hygienic.

I would recommend the Oriental Inn for those wanting a nice Chinese meal in a clean and friendly environment.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

Great service and great food.
We hadn't made a reservation and was already recommended to go here so we did
A group of 22 of us went including 4 children and they were excellent
They had no problem making a table for us and were very busy
but service was still quick and efficient
My children all have allergies to gluten, wheat and nuts
and they were able to provided them with food that was suitable for them and they thoroughly enjoyed it.
They even went to buy us the wine we wanted as they didn't stock it.
I highly recommend anybody to go here as they are extremely polite and the food is high standard.
I look forward to coming here again in the near future.

“Worst food”
Reviewed 28 September 2012

Initally we were impressed at the efficient service and how our.order was taken. We ordered satay chicken sticks, Mongolian lamb steamed rice and stir fry veg with black bean sauce. The lamb was chewy and gristly making it inedible. The blackbean sauce was too salty and very making it very hard to eat with the chewy Mongolian lamb. Unfortunately it was a Wednesday night in whyalla and not much seemed to be open I would recommend that people steer clear of this restaurant, visit pizza hut instead.

“Pretty Ordinary”
Reviewed 15 April 2012

Inexperienced young waitresses were all over you to order as soon as you sat down. and every minute for the next 5 minutes, and then slow and disjointed which was quite annoying. We had the 3 course meal for 4 people with 4 main course dishes. Not sure which region of China the style of food represented but it was rather bland except for the beef in blackbean sauce which was quite good. Overall not a place i would return to..
