Treating the family to a birthday meal, it was an excellent choice. The menu is varied with Chinese, Thai & Vietnamese options. If you're looking for somewhere special then book here. It's blot the cheapest restaurant around but it is well worth the money you pay. The waiter even recommended the smaller portions for our 14 year olds and there... More

This restaurant is always busy, but luckily on booking at short notice they were able to accommodate our request for an early table. We were advised at the time that the table had been reserved for 11/2 hrs later, but that was no prob. Staff were very attentive and the food totally scrumptious. A fab evening to be had here...

Initially we were seated in a dark alcove room off the main dining area near a large party who were rather loud. As we could barely read the menu, we were allowed to move to the main room. The food was absolutely wonderful. Our meal included Tempura Tiger Prawns and Steamed Gyoza pork dumplings for starters followed by Crispy Duck,... More

I started with the stuffed okra topped with a lovely mildly spicy sauced poured over it in front of me at my table. My main course was tiger prawns in a coconut sauce. One thing that struck me was that the food was very hot, served straight out of the kitchen without sitting, which I love. Both dishes were wonderful.... More

I was promoted to write this review after seeing some negative Trip Adviser comments about one of my favourite restaurants. The Orchid consistently delivers great food in a bustling restaurant with staff who are invariably attentive. On our last visit I had an excellent Bang Bang chicken to start and a delicious sizzling beef to follow. We were a party... More

We had hit knaresborough at the unwelcoming hour of 1545 on a Sunday afternoon tired and hungry. After a depressing 45 min recanoiter and to escape the karaoke singer from hell. We set off to try our luck in Harrogate. If I could say "pretensious Moi!" In Yorkshire accent then you would get a feel of what greeted us. After... More

We stayed at the Studley Hotel, which has the Orchid on premises. We had breakfast here two mornings, and also had dinner here one evening. The food for all three meals was excellent. The breakfasts were above average to excellent English breakfast fare. While these were very good, the evening meal was the highlight. For dinner, we had some of... More

The restaurant at 1PM was quiet, many diners were outside, but we chose inside. The service was very good, attentive, but not overly so. The service was prompt and respectful. There was a large choice for the set menu (2 or 3 course) and a la carte also available. We had tempura prawns with a sweet chilli dip for starts,... More

Description
The eponymous Orchid Restaurant, Harrogate at it's inception was one of the first pan Asian restaurants in the UK and is now well established in the North Yorkshire region and beyond.The menu at Orchid Restaurant draws heavily on the influences of true oriental flavours in a modern style. Created by Bokmun Chan, this special setting has been recaptured not only through the menu, but also it's mango and dark wood interiors, separated by Japanese lattice style screens. The brigade is managed under the watch of Kenneth Poon, former Michelin Head Chef of the Dorchester Hotel.The Orchid opened in Harrogate in May, 2001 and has since won many awards and accolades for it's cuisine, presently holding 2 rosettes.The Orchid has become synonymous with excellent quaity pan-Asian cuisine and professional service for many years. Why wait, come and enjoy the experience...
