Not the best Oriental I have had....I seldom eat in the restaurant...that service is often kind of surly. We do eat here on Christmas Day. Carry out is amazing.

My friends and I order take out from this restaurant a couple of times a month. We love it! Great food every time. We like the sweet and sour chicken, ham fried rice, chicken fried rice and all soups. Wontons aren't too good but that's about all we don't care for. We haven't tried the sushi but we've heard it's... More

Oriental Express is in my opinion, the better, if not the best, Chinese in Topeka. We eat here frequently, either as dine in or carry out. It is rare for us to be disappointed!

This is our families favorite Chinese place. We eat here all the time. The chicken fried rice is always good. They serve Sushi and other Asian dishes as well. Never had a bad meal.

This was only the second time going and it just wasn't that good. Everything seemed fresh, flavors just weren't that great. Everything was just, eh. Maybe I'll try them one more time. Someday.

This is my go to Asian restaurant! The staff is friendly. The choices are great, from typical Chinese to curries and sushi. Prices are reasonable, the atmosphere is decent. The special sushi rolls include soup, Mexican bubble roll is delicious! They have lunch specials.

My kids and I go regularly for dinner. It's always a pleasant experience. The food, all of it, is delicious, fast, and filling. They greet us like we are welcomed friends, even family. Casual dining at its finest. Easy on the wallet and enough to take home, at least something to remind us of our great time. Oriental Express is... More
