The buzzing place to see and be seen in fashionable Melrose Arch. With its rich décor in colours of silver, purple and copper, Orient is all glitz and glamour with its glass crystals dangling from the ceiling. The interior certainly makes an unforgettable statement and whether you love it or hate it, the attention to detail is simply superb. Offering contemporary Asian cuisine which is beautifully presented, Orient is a big hit with sushi lovers and Johannesburg fashionistas.


Owned by Thai Africa restaurants, the group that launched other fashionable favourite Asian restaurants - Wangthai, Soi and Saigon, the décor at Orient makes a radical departure from the more traditional Asian-style interiors one is accustomed to. It is thanks to designer Anton de Kock’s interpretation of the “yin and yang” theme that all the elements of the interior compliment one another so successfully. Even the cloakrooms are impressive with their funky LCD screens!


With authentic Asian Chefs in charge of the kitchen, you can be sure you’re eating the real thing. Try the Asian-style oven roast duck, or the steamed fish with a soy and ginger sauce, or select from the range of Chinese dim sum, sushi, Thai or Vietnamese dishes on offer in this trendsetting, slick, modern restaurant. The Peking Duck which is the signature dish is highly recommended. Orient has been graded as one of South Africa’s select 5-star venues.
