Awful restaurant

I went to la orient with my family today and was surprised by just how awful it was. I have experienced a number of lovely Chinese buffets ands some not that great but this was pretty shocking. To start we were not told the price or any information about the a la carte menu or buffet. Then they had no larger, so when brought cokes (a second choice) we asked for large and they were in a half pint size glass, which would be fine if not charging a premium. Then the food - there was very limited selection, the majority was fried and not authentic Chinese which wouldn't have been so bad if it wasn't stone cold or like warm and dry. The containers were not like a large buffet stand but we're table size and not heated like in a large buffet stand. There was no fruit or dessert of any type available with the buffet either. Complimentary sauces were also limited. The price for this lunch time menu was £14.50 per person (a price you would expect for an evening menu or at least a decent lunch) I would never recommend or return to this restaurant. We were looking forward to eating here but was sorely disappointed. Plus seating was terrible too. The chairs were old rickety wooden chairs and uncomfortable. Not good for disabled or elderly. Don't go unless you want to be ripped off!!

    Fabulous Sunday Buffet at La Orient

       

    What a great place to bring all the family! This place is great value and the kids can basically eat as much as they like. A good place to come to after a movie at the Odeon - love it!

    La Orient

       

    La Orient is a restaurant on the Esher high street that offers a menu of delicious South East Asian cuisine. They include an excellent Sunday buffet service which is of terrific value.
