We had a lovely anniversary meal on Wednesday night. The food was excellent and the staff attentive. It was a shame the restaurant was so quiet as the food standard is very good. Must be a hidden gem for now. We will definitely return.

I ordered the $108 Peking duck package for 2 people.
The duck is crispy and delicious, the staff will push the trolley out to serve the duck. He will cut and wrap the pancake in front of you. Amazing!
The fried rice is good for vegetarians too. You can choose two main dishes from the menu.
The scallop and prawn dishes are really good.
I look forward to try the lamb and beef dishes.
Overall are good , but the wait time for main dishes can be too long if there are more guests.
Good value for money especially you go during Wednesday and Thursday 30% off entire bill. Friday and Saturday are full price. But the $108 package have already saved you $20-$30.
Will definitely go back again. It is so beautifully decored, light is really good. The alcohol list is reasonably good.

My husband and I love going here. The food is divine. Sometimes it is difficult getting a waiter's attention which is a bit of a drawback. I waited till I had nearly eaten my meal for hoisin and soy sauce I requested to accompany the meal. I suggest the wait on staff look around more than they do.

Dishes were of high quality and tasty.
Staff were attentive. Cocktails nicely done.

However dishes are on the extreme small size and expensive.

We ordered half a duck for 2 people and there was no flexibility in just having it with pancakes only or duck itself. We had to have it as a combination of pancakes and lettuce leaves.

Overall satisfying food.

The food was very tasty but the service was slow. We did come in for a late dinner at 8: 30 and i felt we were being rushed. They shouldn’t take late bookings if it’s too late for the kitchen. Their drinks list also had 5 types of gin & when we ordered we got told they only had 1 available. There was a make serving us & we were asking questions about menu items but there was a language barrier there so we found it hard to understand. The decor was lovely & we enjoyed the dishes especially the ginger scallops.

We've booked to dine for lunch for a set menu which was advertised on the Grand Orient website but were told it's no longer available upon our arrival. We were resorted to order from the standard menu and much to our surprised after 35mins, we were informed that the set menu is available again. The waiter who took our order was quite abrupt when we did our ordering, for the class and level of the restaurant, the service felt like a fast food chinese take away. Other than our order experienced, we were not informed that our shared order dish of 2ppl each (3 sets in total) was combined altogether in 2 platters only and some of the guest did not have their fair share of food. Other than the service and poor communication, we were pleased with the overall presentation of the food and it's flavours.

A beautiful restaurant to enjoy all your favourite chinese dishes. Peking Duck pancakes are expertly prepared at your table. The old fashioned favourite of sweet and sour pork is filled with flavour and tender pork pieces . There is plenty of seafood to choose from plus, vegetables, noodles and rice dishes to keep everyone happy. The fried ice cream was a winner for adults and kids! The wine list is reasonably price and we were well looked after by friendly, efficient and attentive staff. Special thanks to Jenny and Daniel for their service.

I really like the food reminds me of the old Grand Palace days down on the esplanade. Duck was good, Hong Kong prawns excellent as was the ginger shallot scallops. Not to mention the truffle rice. Only thing is that it is some what pricey

I invited the General Manager of the Crown Metrapol seeing as we are all have backgrounds in multi-site Hospitality Venus, it was a pretty tough crowd.

We all agreed that it was an absolutely tremendous meal, the service (Daniel and Christine from memory) was notably attentive yet discreet, the menu was well described and our glasses (and teacups), were never empty.
