Went here on a Saturday night and we all enjoyed a nice meal. This is what I remember what a Chinese food restaurant use to be be, not all the new Asian fusion places that have been opening up all over the place. The food and atmosphere remind me of all the Chinese restaurants that were around 25-30 years ago. All the food was served hot and delicious. The prices and portion size are very good. Service was attentive. Will be returning again!

Excellent choices with wide variety. Quality and selection is comparable to Chinatown or Flushing, but the restaurant itself is not one of those mammoth complexes nor a greasy hole in the wall with sticky tables and paper plates. It's average-sized for a LI restaurant, clean and modern. Ordering is off of a cart as in many places so you can see what you're getting. They have all the typical Dim Sum standards-- she-mai, steamed/baked roast pork buns, rice noodle dumplings, sesame balls, sticky rice, chicken feet, etc. It's not trying to break new culinary ground. But what I sampled was all good. Service typical. As with similar establishments some servers speak limited English-- but that's okay, just point. They also have a list of menu items that you can order. Again nothing especially novel, and I didn't try any of them. But people at the adjoining tables had noodle dishes and they looked good.

Will go again, next time with people so we can try more..

We were excited to finally go to The Orient because of all the wonderful reviews. Sadly, we were very disappointed with a number of things. First, the restaurant. The space is like a cafeteria, not a restaurant. Boxes of soda and wine stacked in plain view of the dining area, not very appealing. They serve wine, saki & beer but no mixed drinks?? The bathroom (mens) was filthy, not a good sign...
The service is erratic, you have numerous servers all doing the same thing. Now the food. As this was our first time at the Orient, we decided to try some of our favorites. We started with the pork fried dumplings which were very good. We tried the Chinese broccoli with oyster sauce. The broccoli was good but the oyster sauce was so salty it was inedible. We tried the chow fun which was ok but not great. We then tried the squid with salt & pepper. The batter was under cooked which left it mushy and there was little to no taste of salt and pepper. We then tried the sweet & sour chicken. Again, the batter was under cooked and mushy. It's supposed to be crisp!! So, all in all a disappointment and no reason to go back.

One of the best dim sims I've had so far. They cart around the food in these little carts and you pick the ones you like

We have always had not only great food, but wonderful service. The menu is extensive and the dishes always come out quickly and beautifully prepared.
