We've been going here for a long time, and we keep coming back as other places let us down. We've tried so many chinese take-aways in Shirley and other parts of Southampton, but all too often we'll think we've found a good one, and it'll turn out to be a disappointment after just a few visits. Oriental Express, however, has disappointed us only once (that I can remember) in about 10 years of patronage. They're very friendly and warm, and usually know what we're going to order before we do! The kitchen is open and viewable from the counter, which is not only reassuring, but also facinating to watch the chefs work. Don't bother with the satay chicken, but pretty much everything else is good. The general quality may not be quite up to Mr So (Winchester) standards, but its cheaper and still better than most. Recommended: Beef & black bean sauce (very good here), the "Happy Family", the fragrant duck is always excellent, hot & sour soup! Not recommended: satay chicken skewers, chicken with yellow bean sauce and cashews (very bland), and the vietnamese dishes are too fiery for my tastes! Overall: consistent high quality, friendly, good value... what more do you want?
If you are the owner or manager of Oriental Express Takeaway, or even just a loyal customer, there's a lot you can do to help promote it. The easiest of these is simply providing as much information as you can about the takeaway, but we also have options available to let you verify ownership and promote Oriental Express.
