The Orient Chinese Restaurant

Last date I was here: 06/05/2009

Food: 5, Price: 4, Service: 4, Ambience: 2, Accessibility: 3

Summary: This Chinese restaurant is located in Bethpage on Long Island, NY and is known for its owner’s great service to loyal customers and quality of food. Serving classic Hunan style Chinese food, the Orient remains popular for both dining and take away meus. Although no reservations are accepted, you can call ahead to announce how many in your party are arriving – but expect a line waiting out the door upon arrival.

We went for a special dinner with Keith’s family and were seated in the side room where it is less noisy. The friendly service makes up for the lack of ambience. Our server, Angel, was very attentive and the owner, Tom, stopped by to announce his seafood specials of the night. All of the food we had tasted fresh and we shared everything with delight. I enjoyed having a little taste of everything. The soup was very good as a starter on the rainy night we went. The Orient is a favorite of Keith’s family and I hope to come back again in the future.
