Food arrived 35 minutes earlier than ETA. Very tasty

Edwina, 27 Feb 2021

We have ordered and eaten many dishes from Oriental Express over the last six years but tonight we were very disappointed; the meals (Szechuan duck, crispy shredded beef with Cantonese sauce and char Sui pork and cashew) were completely bland - no spice in the Szechuan, no caramel sweetness in the Cantonese sauce. Sorry but we won’t be ordering again. Very disappointed as we recommended you guys many times.

Cold food, unfortunately! Fast delivery and polite driver... but that’s as far as it’s goes. Satay dish was more like a curry and just full of onions.
