I first came to this restaurant about 8 weeks ago with a group of 10 people . We ordered a set menu and was very disappointed with the quality and type of dishes served . I returned 3 nights ago with a group of 6
people and we ordered individual dishes to share as well as the Peking duck . The food at the second visit was much better and the overall experience much more enjoyable. I would advise against set Menus

We have had a lovely family meal out last Friday. We ordered about 10 dishes. To start off we had the Peking duck which comes in two courses. the pancake was light and the skin was tasty and crisp. the Sang Choy Bow was well presented and tasted wonderful. The roast pork although was tasty, the crackling was a touch chewy but still tasted delicious. The xo string bean was beautifully cooked. The favorite dish was the cumin lamb well cooked and the leeks complimented well with the lamb. Your red bean pancake was the best I have tasted so far - not greasy and generously filled with the red bean paste.

Food was nice but service was lacking. Didn't like my glasses clashed on the table by the waiter without an apology. Not particularly attentive was the service either and they were not too busy on that Friday night.

Beautiful decor, food was amazing. Unfortunately we had to wait 45 mins for our other main dishes, very disappointing; By this stage we just wanted to go, thinking that we had been forgotten about. It was explained that the VIP room needed to be served... and our dishes would be on their way- I was unhappy about this, aren't we all VIP's?

Have recently moved into the West Perth area and walked here Friday night
Had an amazing night, food was absolutely fantastic
Our waitress was so lovely and friendly.
She offered us advice on what to eat and also helped me pick a lovely Chardonnay.
The food was beautiful, the roast duck cooked perfectly and the Kung pao chicken just the right level of spicy
We have not had such a great dining experience in a long time. I train people to deliver excellent customer service and know how this can make or break a dining experience, the service we received on Friday was 10 out of 10
Can’t wait to visit again!

The food was fantastic but I did not appreciate the clock countdown as I was booking. It made me very nervous and I thought it rude. Especially as the restaurant was very empty when I was there.

Too noisy. Could not hear each other on the same table. However, the wall paper was fantastic to look at.
Our waiter was dismissive, abrupt and uncaring of our needs. We waited for over 45 min for our drink and food order to be taken even though we indicated that we were ready a number of times and she was also told we were ready and waiting by another staff . When the wine was delivered it sat in the cooling container for 15 min before the wine glasses were delivered. Tap water was spilled in the food platers while filling water glasses with no apology offered.
The head waiter was totally professional during the meal and afterwards when he was offered our feedback.
The food quality was of the appropriate standard.
I would not return to this restaurant and I would not be recommending it to others.

This was a follow up to an enjoyable first visit a few weeks ago. Our group reduced from 4 to 3 close to the visit. We were the only table in the restaurant for the first hour of our visit, then 2 more tables came. Not a hectic day. We had planned on ordering the Peking Duck special but it is for 4 people. We asked for the serves ( and price) to be modified for 3 people but the manager declined. We ended up ordering some of the courses separately which resulted in us paying more money for less food. Waitress was very apologetic but there was no attempt by management to find a solution. This rigid, old fashioned attitude to service would have been easier to understand if it was a busy day. Perhaps they hoped we would leave so the restaurant was completely empty.

We have dined twice at this gem and absolutely loved the food, ambience and service. The music was a little annoying but the hotel plays the same music in the restaurant as at the bar which is not compatible with such a gracious restaurant. I highly recommend this restaurant and felt I was back in Hong Kong enjoying the Cantonese food with its authenticity.

Hi, the food is fantastic - but I am sorry to say that the service is just too slow.

Clients are pushed for time at lunch, and that has to be respected.

I would love to come back soon, but only when I know I can get my guests back to their work in good time.

Over 2 hours is too long for a business lunch - hope to be back soon once you are back in form.

Grand Orient most certainly is the best Chinese restaurant in Perth. All their dishes are excellent in terms of flavour & being perfectly cooked. You can tell the chefs have years of experience behind them. Service is polite & friendly & the surroundings are attractive.

Food was fabulous. We had the set menu , highly recommend but for the dessert. Would have liked a better dessert. Jelly layered little square , not much flavour, not great.
Staff pouring wine need to be a little more experienced ,no offer to taste the wine after opening and white wine was poured into a half filled glass of a different white wine ie mixed !!
No up sell for coffee/tea or after dinner drink. Once set meal over that was the end of any attention.

Friday Night maybe not the best night, as it was a bit loud. Saturday or other nights might be more enjoyable. Food was quite nice but not enough for the numbers we had at our table (8 adults + 2young grandies) To cater for that the cost would have been too expensive. Entrees were very good.

We thought it could be good for couples on quieter nights. Service was very good.

Maybe have another look after 6 months as this was our family favourite eating spot prior to renovations.
