Taste Of Orient

Had four meals delivered and each has been better then the last. The food is still steaming hot when I opened the package and it taste great. Plus how can you beat the price! And its courteous people taking the order over the phone. Will continue to order from again...

This is the kind of restaurant that's more than really tasty Chinese take-out. In fact, it's really tasty Chinese, Japanese, Thai, AND Vietnamese take-out! The fare may not be absolutely authentic, and the word "Orient" may cause your more politically correct acquaintances to cringe, but any place that offers up your choice of four kinds of Asian cuisine is an uncommon find. Factor in the substantial serving sizes, overall quality, and bottom-barrel price points, and it becomes completely unique.My experience with Taste of Orient is entirely delivery-based, and began (like so many love affairs) the morning following a night of drunken debauchery. The craving for steamy, starchy foods was intense, but I knew I needed vitamin-packed vegetables to truly soothe my belly-beast. The answer? Vegetable Delight. Big branches of broccoli, sliced water chestnuts, crunchy baby corn, and mandolin-cut zucchini with a pretty zig-zag edge, all sauteed in a thick brown sauce that's more sweet than salty. Served with your choice of steamed or fried rice, it's balanced and filling without being bulky.But my favorite so far must be the Vegetable Lo Mein. It's an absurd amount of noodles, more than enough entree for two, so tightly packed that chopsticks don't stand a chance. Some people would disdain such a carbohydrate creation, calling it an unruly nest of soy sauce-shrouded starch, I say pass me a fork and make room for seconds. It's the best tasting Lo Mein I've ever had, a pasta so savory and salty I don't even mind that the veggies are an inconspicuous afterthought.Speaking of the best, you've gotta try the Egg-Rolls. Almost all of the appetizers are delicious, especially the crispy-creamy Crab Rangoon and assorted soups, but the Egg-Rolls are practically perfection. Savory, steamy, well-spiced fillings wrapped in a decadently flaky, crunchy crust - order extras, you WILL want seconds.I haven't explored the many Thai or Vietnamese menu options yet, but I get the impression that there isn't much room for failure. Every entree I've sampled has landed in the good-to-great zone, and the value per dollar is virtually double thanks to the epic portion sizes and leftover-friendly packaging. "Order Once, Eat Twice!" - that's my submission for Taste of Orient's unofficial slogan.

Taste of Orient is one of my favorite options for delivery food. I often struggle to find something I like at Chinese places. I have had quite the opposite experience with Taste of Orient. I've been ordering from them for a couple years now and I have yet to try a dish I didn't enjoy.The egg rolls are tops. Order extra, you'll thank me later. All the appetizer type items are savory deliciousness. The entrees are pretty big, I usually have enough left over to make fried rice for breakfast with the addition of a couple scrambled eggs, nom.I've never been there, I have no idea where it is. The people on the phone and the drivers are cool though. Delivery time is always reasonable. There are good coupons in the Saver, our beloved University District menu guide. Save a couple bucks on those extra egg rolls I told you to order. So yeah, killer Chinese delivery that feeds me a couple/few times whenever I order, delivered in a timely fashion by friendly folks. Four stars.

Not bad! We'd been looking for some decent Chinese delivery with a decent number of vegetarian options. Taste Of Orient's reviews on Yelp are pretty varied, so we'd put off trying ToO until last night. We ordered online, got a super friendly courtesy call to clarify part of the order, and even though this was during a big storm a super friendly delivery dude arrived with our food in under 25 minutes... impressive.And the food was just fine -- pretty tasty lo mein, and the hibachi tofu was decent. Everything was well-packaged in reusable plastic containers in a cardboard-bottomed bag. I wish there were more vegetarian options on the menu and something other than tofu as their go-to meat replacement (like a wheat-gluten-based mock chicken), but there's enough choices that we'll be ordering regularly I'm sure.

This is down right one of my favorite Chinese stops in Columbus. The people are fun and friendly and very nice. yes it is Americanized but it is still really good and for the price you get a lot of food. Love the fact that they deliver as well!

Not a lot of words to waste on this place. I am a huge fan of Chinese food take out and am cool with even settling with a mediocre meal that hits the spot.You will not find it here. Very *meh* food. Though I was hungry, once I finished about 1/3 of the orange spicy chicken, I lost all motivation to continue eating...The food just really bummed me out.Why are there no good late night deliveries?!?!

I was really excited when I found Taste of Orient. My boyfriend and I love Chinese and one day decided to try it. Everything is delicious and always leaves me with leftovers. Each dish is prepared to order with fresh ingredients which is something I really love about this place. By far my favorite Chinese restaurant on campus and one of my favorite places in Columbus.Try to order away from the dinner rush. This is a small business and since they make everything to order the kitchen can get backed up during the rush. But it is worth it.

This place is exactly what you expect a Chinese take-out place to be.Everything is mediocre. The food, the service, the prices... but hey, sometimes that's exactly what I'm looking for. Actually, the service is usually pretty great. Deliveries can be slow but the employees are always friendly and helpful.I've ordered here at least two dozen times since moving to Columbus, and they tend to be a little inconsistent, but I'm never disappointed. Sometimes the food arrives much earlier than expected, sometimes much later. The food quality varies. I don't think they know how to make coconut soup properly, they use sweetened coconut milk... yuck. When you order a lot of food they give you a free two liter of soda. Sometimes they forget the chopsticks, but I've NEVER had them mess up an order or forget an item.They aren't the greatest, but they're my go-to place when ordering Chinese for delivery.

Best fast-food style chinese restaurant in columbus by far. I've eaten there more times than i can count. Hibach, Kung pao, Schezuan chicken all delicious as well as their new vietnamese dishes.
