The portions are generous enough to serve two or to make two meals. The cashew chicken was mild and because it was for a child, perfect. I think I'd skip the tofu dishes as the texture was a little closer to a sponge. It is...More

Won't go back! Been there twice for take out and the food was mediocre at best! The won-ton soup was good when I had a bad cold and sore throat but two times I was charged double the price than the menu price. The service...More

Family owned Oriental Express has great Chinese takeout (as other reviewers have noted, take out only). The service is quick and friendly and the serving sizes are very generous. In addition, lunch specials, which end at 3 pm are fantastic. Entree (with rice) egg roll...More

Great family-owned Chinese take-out spot near Hollymead and Forest Lakes. Call you order in ahead and it will be ready when you get there.
