I'd heard this restaurant was under new management so we decided to give it a try...........I'm sure glad we did! The owner; David was polite, friendly, very proficient and a wonderful chef. He does all the cooking himself, and his skills really shine in the quality of food he produces,
Although the decor needs to be updated, the meal definately made up for it!
The food was fabulous, especially the sweet and sour sauce, we had the Sweet and Sour Pork with Pineapple, it was nice and thick and had a dark red appearance, not like some thin traslucent ones. The flavour was fantastic, I could have it on everything!!
Other dishes we tried were also very delicious; Beef & Broccoli with Black Bean Sauce (homemade, not from a bottle), Honey Garlic Boneless Pork (this sauce was sticky, sweet and addictive), Spicy Ginger Beef - very crispy with just the right amount of heat, Prawns in Creamy Butter Sauce and the Lemon Chicken......Mmmmm this sauce was perfect. We also had standard chinese fare: stir fried veggies, fried rice and chow mein.
The price was acceptable for 6 people, about $22.00 per person including tea and soft drinks.
I highly reccomend The Orient, it is only a short drive to Cultus Lake from Chilliwack and absolutely worth it.
Had this restaurant been in a more central location I know it would be hard to get a seat a meal times!
David will pack everything to go for take out too, so you can call ahead and it will be ready when you get there.
So........take a drive to Cultus and enjoy some delicious Chinese Food.
