Just another average chinese restaurant. The food is okay, but I would not recommend it to anyone. If you order take out, the man behind the counter will watch you fill out your receipt and if you leave a tip, he'll say "thank you very much," but if you do not leave a tip, he will give you the evil eye. Don't believe me? Try it! I've given this restaurant dozens of chances, but I will not go back anymore. It's just not worth it. China Palace off of Garrett Rd has slightly better food.
July 2010 UPDATE: My friend got very sick from eating here. STAY AWAY!

Food is ok, over priced, for service take in or eat in. Staff has does not smile, if you are going to charge the price, at least you can do is smile, not look like I keeping you from something.

love the food at this particular restaurant however I miss the customer service that was once provided. There was a guy at one point whom worked there and his customer service was outstanding so polite and courteous always!! : ) But now there is a older chinese lady who has taken his place and her customer service overall is awful but I will not get into that. My last visit to this restaurant was the last thanks to her and her nasty attitude this woman had the nerve to throw my receipt instead of handing it to me after I cheerfully paid for my meal, mind you Orient is pretty pricey. I tell you one thing I will take my hard earned money elsewhere this is not the only restaurant in NC and to be honest I have actually tasted much better!

This was our first time at the Orient Garden and it was EXCELLENT! I don't understand all the negative reviews for this place. Especially the imbeciles who rated it as "worst food ever" and then got their fill from McDonald's. McDonald's is disgusting and if you find yourself fulfilled by its fare, you have horrible taste and worthless opinions on cuisine. Eat your fastfood and spare the world your baseless opinions.
We are huge enthusiasts of Asian cuisine (Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese, Korean, Indian, etc.). We've eaten at countless Asian restaurants all over the country and we are not easy to please. For our first visit here, we were definitely impressed by the food. Wonton soup: very good; smooth broth; good garlic flavor; not too salty; wontons could have had more pork in them, but overall, it was above average. Crab Rangoons: EXCELLENT; crab rangoons are most often open-top pastry style with too little stuffing and overly sweet; these were ravioli style and generously stuffed with a very very tasty blend of cream cheese, ricotta, scallion, crab, and pepper; the pastry itself was crunchy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside and had a great sweet flavor. Sha Cha Beef: very good; beef was extremely tender; very generous mix of vegetables in the dish, and the veggies were firm, not overcooked and soggy as you see too often; sauce was mild and tasty; wasn't as spicy as we like and maybe could use a little flavor enhancement, but overall the dish was very good. Roast pork lo mein: ok; noodles were a little softer than they should be; green onion was the only veggie; roast pork was about average.
The service was also excellent. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. Don't listen to the negative reviews; try it and judge for yourself.

Bad service. There were 3 of us and we waiting way too long for our lunches. This is the 2nd time I've eaten there and the food really isn't that good. Then to top it off, I checked my checking acct today and saw that they added $2.00 to my bill - my co-worker had warned me they might do this. Don't go there, you will be disappointed.

I absolutely love the food from Orient Garden. It is by far the best Chinese food in Durham. Everything tastes so fresh, the service is fantastic, and the portions are very generous.

Orient Garden is officially my favorite Chinese dining restaurant. Lunchtime is the best time to go for good prices and a full portions. Try the singapore noodles, no pork, curry style. you'll love the spice in the noodles!

My wife and I have eaten there several times and we really enjoy it. The staff there is courteous and professional. They really give you the authentic Chinese experience.
