Editorial review from Citysearch 10/14/2013

This is my go-to place for local sushi that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. It's flavorful, fresh, and generously portioned. \r \r Some of the entree's are hit or miss - way too much oily, rich sauce (at least for my liking). But they will tailor its preparation to your request. \r \r One work of advice to the owners if they see this - it's time to replace or reupholster the booth seating. No one wants to sit on saggy, crinkly seating. It brings down the rest of your fun, cute restaurant, which is a shame. more

Been going for years 1/26/2011

DELICIOUS sushi and hibachi. I just love it. The food is very consistent with good quality ingredients. The only complaint is that they need to update the booth seating. A couple times I have gotten seated where there are no springs left and you keep going down down down into the seat. Very uncomfortable. If you are in their delivery zone, the food is always still very hot and well packaged. more

was... just ok 5/14/2010

We went on New year's eve which may have been the problem, but our reservations got mixed up and we had to wait around while who I think was the owner glared at us. We ate at the hibachi grill. Once we sat down I found out that they charge extra for fried rice... but isn't that the base of the meal? I would rather them just bump up the regular price than nickle and dime. The food was very mediocre. If I go again maybe it will be better, and if it is I will update this post, but from my first and so far only impression, it was just... ok. more

What former employee say about oriental! 1/15/2010

I was a former cashier. Manager Wendy never let me have my tips. Everyday Wendy told me ""You don't worth the money I paid you."" Wendy always use hateful eye look at me when she talk like that.Wendy don't let me have any break, she always complain I am not move fast enough.Wendy think I eat too slow. I have to go hungry a lot times when I work.I work 13 hours a day, 6 days a week. No overtime pay. Wendy pay me $1800 a month.I commit a suicid after working for 28 days. I didn't get my full monthly salary.I didn't die, I stayed in hospital for almost a year. The doctor said I am permanently disabled. I have to take medcine all my life. Pros: hungry? Come in ! Cons: wolf at the door more

Great Sushi in Vinings 9/22/2009

I have been going to this restaurant since high school. I have always had nice attentive servers and really great sushi. The old railroad car makes for a cool entrance too. I now live around the corner - so when I'm in the mood for sushi nearby Orient Express is my first choice! Pros: Yummy Sushi, Great Location Cons: Small Parking Lot, Congested Traffic more

Not worth it 4/27/2009

The night we went, they sat us in front of a party of 20 young girls who were there for a ""Sweet 16"" party...I thought I was at Chucky Cheese's it was so noisy. Some of the girls parents were there as well, at a table on the other side of the restaurant where they could enjoy themselves. Parking here is like a can of sardines it's so tight. The food was acceptable but not worth the prices they charged for it. I won't be going back here, that's for sure... Pros: Quait setting Cons: Terrible parking, no ambience more

A Vinings Staple 3/27/2009

I'll put my bias out there: I love the Orient Express. I have been eating there, since I moved to Atlanta six years ago. The sushi has been excellent every time we go. There have been a few times I tried the Chinese food (good) and the Hibachi (okay), but I keep coming back for the sushi. The service is always good. The food doesn't take long and we usually are too busy enjoying the miso soup and edamame. There is an older lady who has worked there forever and knows us by our drink order (Saki bombs). It can get busy, but I have only on very rare occasions actually waited for a table. Yes, the parking lot is tiny (especially with all the SUVs), but it is worth a trip. Pros: Sushi, Service and Atmosphere Cons: Parking more

Best Variety for Asian Flare 3/19/2008

This place doesn't have the best sushi, chinese, or hibachi grill in town. But they are damn good at all three. Orient Express does have one of my favorite sushi rolls the ""Super Crunch"". I highly recommend it. The hibachi grill is a standard and does a good job of doing exactly that. It isn't KOBE but some things are excellent like the chicken and filet. As for the chinese, I haven't found a GREAT chinese place but this is just as good as any in atlanta. If you are looking for good food, GREAT atmosphere and usually very helpful service...This is the place. Pros: Variety and 3 restaurants in one Cons: Parking is terrible more

I'll never go again 2/8/2008

We moved here from Ann Arbor and went there for because my husband likes Benihana. What a let down! Our bill was $80 and all we had was overcooked scallops and chicken. The hibachi chef was entertaining, but everything else was regrettable. The appetizers were overcooked. The atmosphere was like a day care. We ordered drinks toward the end of dinner and then were rushed to finish and pay the bill. For the same price you can go to Canoe... two miles away and like an entirely better world! Pros: parking Cons: everything else more

Chinese Takeout... 3/7/2007

I havent had the chance to dine in at this particular restaurant, but I have ordered the take-out. The food that I ordered was good, however if you plan to order a drink remember that the items list are (20oz). That price is about a 300% mark-up on soda. Other that that little problem all was normal Chinese food. No real thrills to speack of. Pros: Order online Cons: Overpriced soda..... more

Cheap ingridients, Ridiculous Prices 11/6/2006

People who never had good Asian food. This restaurant is good for them. They use cheap ingridents and charge high prices, just because their location is in Vining. Their price make fool people think it's a upscale restaurant. more

Good sushi, horrible parking 11/3/2006

The sushi here is very good and very fresh. It tends to get a little crowded on weekend nights, at least when I went the last two times. The parking can be horrible and the traffic in this area of Vinings can be pretty heavy and somewhat congested which makes it hard to get in and out of this place. Other than those little nagging things, the food here is top notch and they offer much more than sushi. Since this is an old converted train car (with a little space added on and some outside seating) you might think it would be cramped, but it is actually quite spacious and while sparsely decorated, it is in a funky Japanese minimalist style with paintings, pottery, and other assorted artwork and knick-knacks. I would recommend getting here a little early to get a seat (and a parking spot) and try their specialty rolls and sashimi, I doubt you will be disappointed. Pros: Good, fresh fish and excellent choice of other food. Cons: Parking is limited and area can get congested at night and during rush hour. more

3 in 1!!! 10/25/2006

3 terrific restaurants housed in a cool train car... must see! Pros: ambience Cons: limited parking more

Great Food, Great Place 9/11/2006

I just moved to Vinings from Roswell few months ago and I was looking for good Sushi. I tried their all three cuisine. They all were very impressive. I ordered Sushi while having Hibachi Filet at the Grill. Their Godzilla Roll and Bubba Gump Roll are my favorites! Their Sesame Chicken and General Chicken are fabulous! This is by far one of the best restaurants I've been in a long time. Two Thumbs Up!!! Pros: parking can be bad during weekend, but lots of empty parking spaces next door or across the street Cons: THUMBS UP more

Good sushi 8/28/2006

We picked up some sushi before going to Chastain. Very good. We got a rainbow roll and shrimp tempura. Very fresh. Keep up the good work. We just moved here from Alpharetta and sushi is a bit spotty. There are a couple of other places to try in Vinings but so far so good. Pros: Service, Quality Cons: Parking was tight more

Great place 3/12/2006

I have only lived here for three weeks and have already dined here at least 5 times. I usually have sushi and so far every dining experience have all been really good. I have never had a problem getting a table, getting a parking spot is a different story. The staff is always friendly and the food comes out fresh and quick. this is a great place to bring friends and have a good meal, highly recommended. Pros: Great selection, Nice staff Cons: Parking, Parking, Parking more

Just go to the food court in the shopping mall!! 9/15/2005

I am a Chinese, and I think this restaurant is bad. No matter you think this restaurant is a real Chinese restaurant or an American Chinese restaurant, this place is not worth to go. I had some decent American Chinese food, but this one is terrible bad. I ordered ""smoked tea duck"", but they gave me a deep fried and dried ""mummy"" duck. Any people has common sense should know a smoked duck is tender and juicy, but this one is just dry as beef jerk. I'd rather have the Chinese food in any food court of a shopping mall without paying double price. This restaurant sucks. more
