One of the downsides to our office moving from Broad Street to West Street was being far away from Oriental Express. My coworkers and I used to frequent this place and haven't found a Chinese fast food resto better than Oriental Express. In fact, I think they're the best in the city. Food is amazing. Great value. Can't go wrong with their buffet or their on-the-menu dishes. It seems the people who work there and run the resto are family and talk to their customers as if they're family too. No wonder they have so many loyal customers. Even though I'm no longer in the financial district often, I try to go as often as I can to Oriental Express.

The food here was simply amazing. Best employee's ever! So friendly and home like atmosphere, sure it's not five star, but the food is amazing and seems like it's home cooked. Very Chinese and very homey.

Good price considering the location (financial district). The portions are more than generous. I've had a good experience with the service, the employees are always very friendly. The food tastes good.. Of course some dishes are better than others. I love their singapore noodles and chow fun. However, I will never order their curry chicken again. Their shrimp dishes are good since they use large shrimps, not the tiny baby shrimps that some other chinese restaurants use. Overall, it's a good place to eat if you're really hungry and don't want to spend too much.

I called in advance to order lunch to pick up. While I didn't eat in the restaurant itself, owing to it being in a basement, the food was above average for quality and price. The steamed chicken and broccoli with sauce on the side is often screwed up when ordered via phone. They got it right and the dish was enough to feed two. The Hot and Sour soup, while slightly overly sweet, was above also good. While I have only eaten here once I was surprised by the quality and portion size. If you are looking for a low impact place to pick up near your office I recommend this over other places in the area.

Amazingly good food for the price. Buffet is very good, though there are occasional dishes to be avoided. Staff, especially Jane, is wonderful and helpful with suggestions.

This chinese express is really a Wall Street best kept secret. You will notice many familiar customers coming back for the foods and the service.
