I have been going to this restaurant for over twenty years, ever since it was first reviewed and recommended in the newspaper. The fresh seafood entres are my favorite. The menu has a combination of vietnamese food made with fresh ingredients and sauces with a French flair. The cook often comes out to talk to the customers to ensure everything is perfect. They also have gluten free offerings. - Whenever I go to another restaurant, I always wish I had spent my money at the New Orient instead!

We've been going to this restaurant for decades. Same owner. Same chef for many of those years. My kids loved it when they were children and still love it today.
The sauces are a combination of Asian and French. The Seafood is fresh. The meats in unique sauces are tasty. Even the old standard Moo Shu Pork is uniquely tasty with fresh veges.
The atmosphere is informal but classier than most restaurants in a strip center. Yes, they have cloth napkins and no florescent lights. Prices are moderate and reasonable.

Delicious creative dishes, worth a visit; the cook, Tien, will recognize you, fit the dish to your taste, give suggestions, check how you like it, like the warmest host. Quite unique. Most patrons are customary clients.

A Great Place with very good and friendly service located in a small strip mall.
It's a casual place with a very nice atmosphere.
The Honey Sesame Halibut is a must try, although it is on the sweet side. The Hot and Sour Seafood soup is lovely. My husband had the special, a Tenderloin Mushroom Onion Red Pepper dish that was scrumptious! We haven't been here in a while and I'm happy to say it hasn't changed, always good! I can't wait to go back!

I grew up in Hawaii where eating is an Olympic Sport. By far, my best meals are at the New Orient. They are famous for their Honey Sesame Halibut (my wife's favorite) but you can't go wrong with the Lemon Grass or their Five Spice Chicken. The soups are home made, don't miss the Crab and Asparagus Soup if it is the soup of the day. The menu is based on a French Vietnamese background of the Chef. To say they serve Chinese Food would be like saying I went to Paris and ate at McDonalds. They have the finest $8 (or under) lunches in Denver. The food is the same in the evening but the prices are much higher. Trust the chef when says he has something special for you. I have been going there for 25 years, and never had a bad meal.
