Unfortunately, the Orient in Hanover has a corner on the Chinese food niche here. Although it's never been outstanding, the meal we had tonight was essentially inedible. We ordered very basic, staple, items and, except for the fried dumplings (which ended up steamed), we ended up throwing everything else away. The sauces were wrong, there was very little meat in...

Crab rangoons are very greasy. Triple delight was not bad. Avocado salad was not tasty, just lots of lettuce. Overall, it was not bad.

When we inter the room the clerk sat us down with a paper menu and then we waited for a while for a waiter to come over. Asked if we were ready to order my daughter asked if there were any appetites available so he went and got another menu, so we ordered one, she had to ask fro the... More

This Chinese restaurant is becoming a traditional stopping point on the trek up to see my parents in NH and on our way home. It's just a short 5 minute drive from the 91 and located in the historic town of Hanover. It's a very good Chinese restaurant and their Chinese Eggplant in Garlic Sauce, Broccoli in Garlic Sauce, and... More

The Orient has some of the best sushi ever! I love the Orange Roll, spicy salmon inside, topped with fresh salmon outside. For Chinese the Steamed Salmon with Spicy Black Bean Sauce is fantastic! There's so much food that my husband and I can share this meal.

Food was quick and service was good. Don't know if they had anything to drink besides water, since the waiter never asked. Ordered the amazing chicken, it sadly wasnt amazing. It was tasty and surprisingly spicy but nothing to rave about.

We've had delivery twice because its 1 of 4 (that we know of) restaurants that will deliver to our house. The food is pretty good, not spectacular. Prices seem pretty expensive to me for Chinese delivery but that seems to be the norm in this area.

The restaurant's location is conveniently located in downtown Hanover. The menu selection is average or slightly above average in comparison with the Chinese restaurants in the U.S. If you really appreciate authentic Chinese food, you can ask the waiter or waitress to give you some suggestions. The quantity of each dinner dish is smaller than what you may expect from... More

My son and I stopped here while on a college visit. I loved the egg drop soup, which had more interesting developed flavors than the usual fare, and included a few pieces of chopped tomato. My son said the wonton soup was similarly more interesting and flavorful than what we ususally have in NJ. He enjoyed his triple delight Chinese... More

My husband and I ordered dumpling starters which were just ok and cold sesame noodles which were poor. Noodles were not Asian quality and the sauce was bland and liquidy. Our beef and fish dishes were tasty but my husband was up all night with bad heart burn. Service was prompt but odd. No one offered to follow up with... More
