Thank you for your brilliant food and service. We had a great time dining out there.
Lovely food and brilliant service! Great night had a great Birthday.
Birthday celebration First class, excellent food and service as always
Just everything you could wish for, kind friendly very good service all round . We found it very inviting comfortable and pleasent surroundings, and let me tell everyone the food was out of this world well presented and plenty of it so I say I would recommend the Essence of the Orient to anyone especially if you have a Birthday coming up. Very good indeed. Also if you just fancy a takeaway they cater for that also with their purpose counter and waiting area at the front. Super evening will be going again soon. Thank you.
The main meals where very nice and freshly cooked drinks where nice , however then it all went down hill with the frozen puddings . we had 2 different ice cream puddings they both came very icy i complained ice cream should not be served frozen. we let they melt a while but still the ice cream was not nice and icy like they had been defrosted and re- froze . The staff said they have had problems with the supplier and will not use them again. The puddings where not charged for but it spoilt the meal they never tasted nice and as i told the manageress if they know there is a problem with those pudding why are they still serving them?
This was our second visit to this restaurant and the food was wonderful! the service was very good and the staff were exceptionally attentive. We liked the fact we were remembered from the first time. We will definitely be visiting again. We tell everyone about our experience as good consistent eating places are hard to find.
Came here for a birthday celebration. Booked the table online and very quickly received a text message confirmation from the restaurant which was a nice touch. The service was great, staff were friendly. I love the food here, and everyone in the party was very happy and enjoyed the meal. Definitely recommend.
Awful service!! We were a party of 20 who pre ordered food 10 days before our New Year’s Eve dinner. We arrived at 7 and had still not been served the mains by 9, service was very slow; one diner sent the spring rolls back as they were not up to the usual standard and tasted horrible, one found a very hard, rock like substance in his main dish. We had to keep prompting to be served and when the coffee eventually arrived it was luke warm. The management did not seem to care about customer service- we did feel sorry for the waiting staff who seemed to be trying their best but were just over run with the numbers of diners. 10% was taken off our bill but unfortunately this was no where near what was required for the awful night we had- a sincere apology would have paid great dividends!
This is the thrift time here. The first time the restaurant was manic and the food was a wait but worth it. The last time we went we had a range of food and 10/10. I decided to have lamb in garlic. I actually got beef in garlic. Same price as nice but there were only 5 takes being served this time. And I know we had some cold weather but he restaurant was freezing I’ll give it a miss for a while and maybe try out a few more restaurants
