Re: Skyfall - Grading & Discussion

^I would tend to agree that the word 'Oriental' tends to be a bit offensive when used in respect to a person or people ('Those inscrutable Orientals!' or the like) but I wouldn't have thought it so when used in relation to places.

Someone suggested the Oriental Express - anecdotally, I've just had a look in my phone book and found 4 Chinese Restaurants with Orient or Oriental in their name in my local area.
