Excellent service and fine dining Chinese food complement each other at Grand Orient. Aesetically, the dining room has a few nods to the traditional Chinese restaurant with round tables and plush burgundy chairs but it is the magnificent floral mural that lends a rarer atmosphere to the meal. The food never disappoints and we are pleased to see the team back after a COVID19 break.

As someone who has to eat gluten free, this restaurant was a little gem of a find.
There was a range of dishes that could be adapted to meet out dietary requirements, the staff were very knowledgeable and accommodating.
Nothing was to hard for them and the service was outstanding.
This restaurant offered very good value for money on top of the excellent food.

Absolutely stunning interior, service was outstanding.

Myself and my husband got the peking duck meal for two for $108. Both the duck pancakes and sang choy bao were utterly delicious. The addition of crispy bean curd in the pancakes was something I've never had before and really took them to the next level.

For our two main meals we chose sweet and sour pork and szechuan lamb fillet, which were a slight let down after such a wonderful start. The szechuan sauce didn't really have much flavour so the lamb was quite overpowering and the pork dish just wasn't as light and crispy as I've had from other mid range restaurants. However we both loved the addition of lychees. The fried rice was nice and light however I felt it would have been better without the pine nuts.

Overall I still thought our meal was excellent value, especially taking in to account the service and setting.

Would highly recommend.

A bad start, when we arrived we stood at the front to be seated and had to wait about 10mins, although the restaurant only had about 4 tables occupied, but 2 wait staff was attending to 1 table and others seemed to be busy running around. When we were finally seated the wait staff that served us was good. The peking duck was served fairly quick, peking duck pancakes were nice but the san choy bao were very average. Then we waited nearly an hr for our main but only the pork ribs came out and even they got that wrong. Gave us salt and pepper pork ribs instead of peking sauce pork ribs, so it went back to the kitchen and used the same ribs and cooked it in peking sauce. Came out and we had to wait another 15mins later then the rest of the mains came out. I must say the Grand Orient truffle seafood fried rice was very nice and so was the tooth fish. We wouldn't have mind the expensive dinner at a nice restaurant if service could be improved. We could see other tables were being served quicker than ours and with better service, so I'm not sure why we were so unlucky on the night, especially we were celebrating my hubby's birthday.

Food overall is just ok. Except the soup we order is nice, the rest is just very general and small portion. Fried squids and the red bean pancake is super oily. The lamb is a bit smelly and the manager ordered a wrong dish for us so we need to have another extra wait. Not enough staffs and poor management. Need to wait for long time for them to come over and order plus the food came very late. If it’s not because they were doing promotion I won’t spend my money there. Already told them it’s my Husban’s birthday but no any greeting or special words on the dessert. They try to do fine dining Chinese but obviously cannot mixture. Very not authentic and a waste of time and money

When the restaurant is offering 30% with total bill, the term and condition need to be more specific on the website and their social media. When I arrived and clarify the deal, the wait staff told us the set menu is not part of the deal, rather it was for the al carte. Furthermore, I previously try to contact the restaurant last Sunday about the deal, the phone was not Reply and I left the voice message to request a call back, nobody respond back a call. Overall, food is good but service need to be further improved

I ordered the $108 Peking duck package for 2 people.
The duck is crispy and delicious, the staff will push the trolley out to serve the duck. He will cut and wrap the pancake in front of you. Amazing!
The fried rice is good for vegetarians too. You can choose two main dishes from the menu.
The scallop and prawn dishes are really good.
I look forward to try the lamb and beef dishes.
Overall are good , but the wait time for main dishes can be too long if there are more guests.
Good value for money especially you go during Wednesday and Thursday 30% off entire bill. Friday and Saturday are full price. But the $108 package have already saved you $20-$30.
Will definitely go back again. It is so beautifully decored, light is really good. The alcohol list is reasonably good.

My husband and I love going here. The food is divine. Sometimes it is difficult getting a waiter's attention which is a bit of a drawback. I waited till I had nearly eaten my meal for hoisin and soy sauce I requested to accompany the meal. I suggest the wait on staff look around more than they do.

Dishes were of high quality and tasty.
Staff were attentive. Cocktails nicely done.

However dishes are on the extreme small size and expensive.

We ordered half a duck for 2 people and there was no flexibility in just having it with pancakes only or duck itself. We had to have it as a combination of pancakes and lettuce leaves.

Overall satisfying food.
