I've dining here many times and always leave pleased. This place is popular with locals. It's not easy to find but well worth it. The staff is friendly and helpful. The interior is neat and tidy. I'd give it an 8 out of 10 for cleanliness. The food is always fresh and flavorful. This a popular restaurant with people of... More

This place, although hidden on a side street off Fremont, is so good. All the food is fresh - which may take a few minutes longer than most Chinese restaurants - but it's worth it. They also offer Korean entrees. I go about once a week and out-of-town guests ask to go when visiting.

The Orient Restaurant gives you a choice, serving both Chinese and Vietnamese dishes. I am a Sweet and Sour fan, always ordering this dish over any other on a menu listing Chinese dish choices. Except when I am in China or Taiwan, where it is not listed on any menu except those that cater to tourist. Yes, Sweet and Sour... More

We've lived in Seaside for over three years and are still looking for a Chinese restaurant that has good food and value. Here the food is greasy and expensive.

We have been going to this place for the last 20 years. It is our go to place for Asian food. Their soups are wonderful.

This hidden gem of a restaurant is one of my favorites and visit at least once weekly. It's hidden behind the 7-11 store, and is actually located on a side street (Echo Ave). First you should know that because they serve quality dishes, it takes a while for your food to arrive. But it is worth the wait. I love... More

I first ate at The Orient Restaurant in 1991, when I worked close by. The food has been consistantly delicious from then until now. I go there for one particular dish....Roast Pork w/Vermicelli & Lettuce $7.25. (I ask for lots of Jalapenos) My teenage daughters ate it, and now they return for the same dish. They still live on the... More

The food was awesome (maybe we were hungry?) - however, it didn't come with rice, we asked the waiter if it was going to come with rice when we ordered and he said it would but when the food arrived, there were no rice! WTH! The taste was top notch though so that took away our disappointment but I'm confused... More
