Visited this restaurant last month. The portions came out and were huge. My dish was a fish dish, was really unpleasant. The fish tasted as though it was old! And my partners dish was a classic pad Thai, but there was nothing authentic about it,...More

Was looking for some nice and easy Asian food and found Orient Express Eatery. Picked the dumplings, crispy rice salad, pork belly and pad Thai. The dumplings were average but everything else was great, especially the crispy rice salad!!! Amazing food, highly recommend

An awesome restaurant that I keep coming back too. The food, staff and menu is fabulous. However, I would really appreciate a tasting plate, and or smaller meals so we could try a bigger variety of flavours. 1 dish is more than enough for 2,...More

Everyone enjoyed the night, service was great, and the dishes were large and very reasonably priced. We were very keen to go back the next day for yum cha, but got sidetracked. Highly recommended and we will be back.

Description
Modern Asian cuisine at its finest. Dinner every night and Yum Cha for lunch on weekends. Great selection of teas and wines, hand picked to complement the food. A necessary experience in Byron Bay.
