Oriental Express (Northenden) - Northenden
Was sent Special fried rice for delivery. Opened it to find absolute miniscule amount of meat in the dish. Basically I just paid nearly £6 for rice!!!!!!!! Phoned them up and was told in a condescending way thats "thats how special fried rice is done" Like i was some idiot who has never had the dish before. Cutting corners on quality and ingredients but still charging premium prices stinks to high hell. They were not helpful one little bit, did nothing to try and solve the problem. I was just fed a "like it or lump it" attitutde. Definitely will NOT be spending my hard earned cash at this rip off merchant again. I advise anyone thinking of ordering from here to double check your orders before you leave the shop to make sure you havent been fleeced like I was. Chrisjay
I used to live in Didsbury and got a takeaway from here virtually every week, the food is amazing. It was great that you can watch the chefs preparing the food in front of you, which is different from what most takeaways do when they make your food behind closed doors. You can tell they use really fresh produce as all the dishes are really light, I especially loved the Singapore fried rice dish they do. The ribs they do as well as really good, again compliments to the owner for his ingredients. Don't get to eat there any more as moved away from Manchester now, highly recommended for anyone living in Northenden, Didsbury or Chorlton. Also it is much better value for money than all the Didsbury takeaways who in my opinion are all overpriced, including Globe. The Fine Diner
