Would have given 5 if not for the subjective service standards sometimes, and the takeaway is not as nice. But the General tso chicken is a must try, and it's so close CMU!

The only reason that I gave the place four stars is the convenient location. The food is above average but definitely not the best in Pittsburgh, but I think I will visit again because it is only a five-minute walk from my CMU dorm, which makes it even closer than the cafeteria. The price is reasonable too.

The staff was rude, the food was tasteless. The portions were large though and it was relatively quick.

Despite the cold demeanor of the head lady cashier/owner, this place is worth going to. The food is delicious and is prepared ungodly quickly.

My friend and I went to the Orient Express now a couple of times for lunch. The place is clean and efficient, service is quick but the food overall is good.

For being such a small restaurant, this place is pretty darn good. A lot of college kids eat here, for it's located between CMU and Pitt University. Quick service doesn't mean the food isn't properly prepared. Only one suggestion, could the lady at the register smile once in a while? She has a very unfriendly demeanor.
