    Very enjoyable evening. Food and service are excellent. The first visit and we will definitely be back.

    Been a couple of times and it is by far the nicest Chinese food I've ever had. Always recommend to friends and family and will always come here. The service is amazing the staff are so friendly.

    Lovely place to go for good food at a cheap price.

    Love this place staff where very helpful and always checked back on us to see if needed anything else can't fault service brilliant going again.

    We had the "all you can eat" menu but felt rushed and they took the plates away when we hadn't finished. The starters were disappointing but the mains were good. Poor choice of deserts. The waitress was rude, unfriendly and unhelpful. Not one of the staff were friendly. Would not go back and not recommend. The Wok Inn is far better.

    Fantastic meal, staff very friendly and attentive.
    Good value for money.
    Look forward to going again.

    great place, lovely food, wonderful staff

    My friends hadn't visited Oriental Garden before and they were most impressed. I have been many times and have always had a very enjoyable time. Will be going again shortly, as I take my children and grandchildren there for a Sunday lunch from time to time.

    Food all hot. Service great. Friendly. Clean. Delightful.

    The Oriental Garden is a perfect place for a large group to eat. Food was lush. Service great!

    Favourite place to eat, the food is delicious!

    Lovely! As always!

    The whole experience was enjoyable at the Oriental Garden. We took our children and their partners. The room was warm and the food lovely!

    Favourite place to eat! Love it! Staff are lovely, food is delicious!!

    The food was excellent at Oriental Garden, very tasty and well prepared. We ordered from the all-you-can-eat menu. The quality of food is as good as the full menu, and we struggled to eat more than the 3 recommended courses. We did have desert which was separate from the all-you-can-eat menu, which was quite expensive for what it was. The reason for marking down the service to 3 stars was because we did wait a good amount of time for the staff to bring our bill at the end of the meal despite having asked for it. Also, when first entering the restaurant and being led to our table, the waitress kept looking over her shoulder at the manager at the bar and we seemed to get a grand tour of the restaurant circling tables until they finally decided where they were going to seat us.

    Celebrated my 60th here with family including children. Good sign - lots of Chinese people eating here. We had the Eat As Much as You Like menu. Everyone enjoyed it. Good selection all freshly cooked. Vast Chinese and English menus - very authentic. Great dimsums. Service a little slow at times, but we were not in a hurry. Great place for children as the restaurant is quite noisy (which I like) and the staff were very patient.

    lovely food & good service; would definately go there again

    Very pleasant evening. Although a busy evening, the service was good. It was a little cold from the air conditioning though and they need to better advise that the car park is at the local hotel.

    I visited the Oriental Garden for my birthday and I was really pleased with how the night went and the quality of the service we received. Our meals were really tasty and it reminded me of my travels around Asia.

We say…

If you are looking for authentic Chinese cuisine in Northampton then look no further than the Oriental Garden. Situated on Sheep Street just off Greyfriars and close to the Park Inn Hotel, it is ideally located for shoppers, tourists and residents alike and offers some of the best value Chinese food in Northampton.

The restaurant is newly refurbished and features large, full length windows that help to provide a light and airy atmosphere. The authentic Chinese décor which includes images of dragons and Chinese symbols adds to the traditional theme that runs throughout the entire venue.

The Oriental Garden is favoured by many Chinese customers as well as informed foodies and those who simply love Chinese food. With a well-regarded Dim Sum menu available at lunchtime that includes speciality dishes such as crispy belly pork, ‘Sui Mai’ pork dumplings and baby octopus in satay sauce as well as dishes for the adventurous such as chicken feet in black bean sauce, there is no excuse not to visit. Head Chef Master Lai has over 30 years’ experience including time spent as the executive chef for the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club. He specialises in Cantonese cuisine and experiments with creative new dim sum ideas which are sure to delight. As well as delicious Dim Sum, a full a la carte menu is also available that is packed with meat, seafood, fish, rice and noodle dishes and the Ho Fun fried crispy noodles with mixed meats come very highly recommended.

If you are looking for a truly spectacular meal then you can order the roast suckling pig from the traditional Chinese menu. This must be ordered two days in advance to allow time for the delivery, preparation and cooking of the dish, but the finished results are second to none. Up to fourteen people can dine from one pig and the party will be seated at a round table that comes complete with rotating centre-pieces. For those who just have a big appetite, an epic all you can eat buffet is available and features more popular and well-known dishes such as crispy aromatic duck and beef in black bean sauce.

The Oriental Garden restaurant in Northampton offers really delicious food for very reasonable prices. If you haven’t been before, a visit is highly recommended – you might not eat Chinese food anywhere else afterwards!
