Nestled, as it were, among other small shops in a strip mall near the Hollymead Town Center, is a rare find. A small but busy, family-owned and operated, Oriental take out restaurant with excellent food, and gracious service. The basic menu is not any different,...More

We love Oriental Express! We've been picking up food from there for years, and the food is always excellent. They always get our order exactly right, and the quality is consistently excellent. If you are anywhere near Forest Lakes, try Oriental Express and prepare for...More

Sesame chicken was chewy, dumplings were average. Combo lomein decent. Shrimp with broccoli was good - shrimp cooked well & broccoli was tasty. Egg drop soup yummy! Hot & Sour soup was spicy. Good but truthfully I wasn't wowed.

You could go to the flaming wok, or one of the many buffets, or you could order take out from oriental express. This restaurant is hands down the best in Charlottesville.

If you love Chinese take out this is the place for you! Their sushi is excellent as well. It is not an eat-in place (thus the name), so be ready to take it home. The food is fresh and tasty, as good as any place...More
