A little hard to find but worth the pilgrimage to this fashionable French/Vietnamese cuisine. If you are wearing shorts, you are not welcomed inside the sumptuous dining area but instead relegated to the ante-area, a beautifully tiled porch. No matter, the food was spectacular-from the delicate soups to the steamed cod in banana leaf, everything was amazingly flavored. Very expensive... More

We had dinner during our visit to Hollywood. We were looking for authentic Chinese food and we found it at the Le Oriental Bistro. We had The Hong Kong ribs as an appetizer and they were amazing. The Orang peel beef and fried rice served as our main course. Again cooked to perfection and seasoned beautifully. The restaurant is small... More

This is very average Chinese food located within the Hollywood Tourist Trap area. Service was good but only because no one else was there. Only advice would be to find somewhere else to satisfy your Asian food pangs.

The service was friendly. The food was fine but nothing outstanding... It filled a hole. Food lacked any flavour. Would suggest removing the dead fish from the aquarium!

This has to be one of the only restaurants on earth that actually looks nicer from the outside than from the inside. Given its location, a stone's throw from Hollywood Blvd., a corner full of thousands of tourists, Le Oriental is quite underwhelming. I was't expecting Mr Chow, but this place is so lack-luster and tired, it should be closed... More

Right around the corner from walk on the stars, just off Hollywood Blvd. Well located establishment. Service was ok and most customers were Asians. Staff friendly but atmosphere below par. The menu is extensive, and although it was lunch, as a holiday the lunch specials were not available. We settled on my General Tso chicken which was good and my... More

The food was delicious! For a Chinese restaurant located in the heart of Hollywood, we were craving for some comfort food and ordered 7 dishes for the family and it was all so yummy. We ordered fried shrimp with walnuts, orange chicken, beef broccoli, sauté spinach with garlic, salt and pepper ribs and fried tofu. Price was reasonable for its... More

The food is very local and delicious. The staffs and the boss are all very friendly. I cannot prove how we love this resturant by words but by action - we return for 3 meals within our 4-day stay in LA!

They were willing to deliver to our hotel in the area. The food arrived promptly Unfortunately it was just awful. I don't usually give poor reviews but I cannot in all honesty praise any of the four dishes we ordered except their miso soup.

We were hungry after spending hours at Ripley's and Guiness. We were walking down the boulevard and saw this place. It wasn't crowded (maybe because they were about to close for the night). We were seated promptly and our food came just as fast. I enjoyed the food. The host was most gracious but it seemed like his (I'm assuming)... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
