One of the best peking duck options in Perth. Other dishes are a bit hit and miss though we've always enjoyed the truffle prawns and vegetarian fried rice. One of the pricier options for Chinese, but worth going to try the peking duck. Quiet ambience better suited for smaller groups and service is lovely.

Beautiful restaurant, greeted and given a choice of seating. Specials well explained and were told unavailable dishes from start. Drinks order taken and served promptly. We then placed our food choices - Seafood For Two. Food was well presented in a timely manner, taste was over and above our expectation.
A special treat was the bottle of 2009 John Kosovich Vintage Shiraz (500ml) with slightly customised dessert.
Overall it was an enjoyable evening with great company, delicious food and drinks. Service was excellent throughout the evening. Highly recommended.

Everything was perfect. Food is always good, and small but versatile wine list (good reserve wines). Kevin and his crew were outstanding with their service on what was a very big lunch crowd, but they handled it quickly and efficiently. I'll be back again for sure!

The food was absolutely amazing! I didn’t love where we where sat for the evening. It was off to the corner and not apart of the main restaurant. We had booked and the restaurant wasn’t even full so I don’t know exactly why we where setting there. The food does take some time to be served but it’s very delicious. I didn’t love that the duck pancakes can’t be ordered on their own but that aside I have no complaints about the food. It’s definitely the best Asian restaurant for me. The soft shell crab was dazzling. We will definitely be back.

There were six of us, we ordered the Peking Duck banquet. The Peking Duck pancakes and San Chow Duck were delicious as were the starters of Spring Rolls and Deep Fried Octopus (starters not included in the banquet.) The next course was the Beef Dish, delivered to us hot , only an average size dish for 6 people. Two portions would of been my guess. It sat there until one of us got up and asked them for some rice. We each got a small bowl of rice intended for the rest of the meal. The Barramundi while delicious, but we only got 5 pieces for 6 people. The next dishes came after long waits. Overall, I did not think we got value for money........ $145 spent on alcohol, $448 on food. I was over it by the time we left

We really enjoyed the food but where we were sitting was too close to the next table. The main dining room looks better. So that was disappointing from what I expected. The service was much too fast, topping drinks etc we were in and out within an hour and I would have preferred a more relaxed pace and atmosphere. Probably won’t go

Excellent Asian cuisine and very attentive staff. Delightful setting only spoilt by the low attendance and eerie quietness that ensues. Drinks choice could be improved by offering customers the choice of beer on tap as well as bottled beer.
However ,an overall good experience and a venue that I would revisit.

We had the Peking duck banquet for 2. Absolutely great Peking duck - the best I've had in Australia in years. Sweet and sour pork was fantastic too (loved the lychees in it). Only thing was the toothfish did not pair well with the other dishes, the flavour was too delicate and not as tasty. In hindsight I would get another main packed with flavour to complement the rest of the meal!
Service was also superb. We went at lunchtime and the atmosphere was nice, not too noisy.
Happily would return for a special Chinese meal.

We went to Grand Orient principally for their Peking Duck. There were 4 of us and we ordered the "Peking Duck Feast for 4" set menu. The Peking Duck turned out to be rather ordinary, only to be kind. The chef prepared the duck in front of us which was a half duck but looked over "cooked" as the duck skin was rather "charcoal black" instead of dark golden brown. The taste of the duck skin was crispy but it was the kind of "deep fried" crispiness which is entirely not the kind of "roasted" crispiness that it should be. The other 3 dishes that came with the set were again unremarkable. Overall, we would not go back to the restaurant if our only reason was for the Peking Duck. Though, the service and ambience was acceptable for a business meal.

There is another thing perhaps I should mention. One of our incentives for going to Grand Orient was that they are listed in the Entertainment Book for an offer of 25% discount off the total bill as described in the Book's Terms and Conditions. However, they declined to offer us the discount when we were paying on the reason that the Set Menu was already discounted even though it was not specified in the T&C. Albeit we understand the management has the right to set their rules but that should be clearly specified in the T&C. Without so doing, it is simply not fair to their customers as we could have ordered a la carte to enjoy the discount. I would suggest any one who wishes to use the Entertainment Book should first check with the management to be sure.

Nice dining room décor. Suitably retro background music that complemented the decor perfectly. We ordered the Peking Duck feast. The food was tasty, of good quality and well prepared. The wine list wasn't extensive but was adequate and well thought out, containing sufficient choice for diners. The restaurant was very busy on Saturday evening, and as the noise level increased, the ambiance changed from romantic to energetic. The wait staff remained attentive, were professional and did their best. Overall, it was an enjoyable dining experience.
