With friendly servers and a kitchen skilled in the smoky rusticity of Vietnamese cooking, the two-decade-old New Orient is a solid choice for those looking for authentic flavor in the middle of the 'burbs. Of particular note are New Orient's near-perfect curries that may forever change the way you look at strip-mall dining, and the specials printed out on plain white paper and tucked inside the menus, offering Vietnamese fare with a modern twist.
