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…

Stayed at The Studley with friends for a birthday treat and decided to book an evening meal in the restaurant.
The service was excellent and the young man who served us was polite and patient, even helping us with our menu choices etc.
We had...cocktails and these were disappointing but drinkable.
Our food was delicious and extremely well presented.
I would agree with the previous review regarding the quality of the chicken starter as it was a bit chewy and slimy but flavours were excellent.
We will definitely return and we really enjoyed our meal (maybe check what cuts are being used meat wise)More
Return visit within a few months, loved it then and this visit too was good. We enjoyed our choices all trying different dishes. If I have a small complaint it was the quality if the chicken, it had a slight slimy texture that wasn't pleasant....New supplier maybe but all the flavours were excellent.More
COVID has meant that we haven’t been to the Orchid for a couple of years. Some things however don’t change, booking well in advance is required, and a long way in advance if you want a table at the weekend, such is the popularity of...this Eastern fusion restaurant.
My favourite dish here is the Plaa Choo Chee (probably spelled incorrectly) which is curried sea bass, although that belies the magnificence of the dish. The last time I had this here in pre COVID days, it was a bit of a disappointment, as the portion I had was over cooked. I am pleased to say that this time the dish appeared presented slightly differently (it seemed to me) and it was as subtle and flavoursome as I ever remembered. Exquisite was the word that came to mind at the time, so a real return to form.
My wife had sirloin in black bean sauce for here main which she though superb. Less so the prawns which she had as a starter which were a little bland. Not so the chilli squid which I had to start, this was really fiery…possibly a little beyond my tolerance. This meant I had to drink more of the splendid Albariño to put out the fire.
Just a word about portion sizes, they are very generous, so either be very hungry when you go or consider sharing some of your feast.
Highly recommended and a splendid return to form.More
We stayed at the Studley Hotel and decided to eat here because of the good reviews and the convenience. Menu is a mix of Far East Asian so Thai, Chinese and Malaysian with a good range of choice of starters and mains. The food was...very good but standout dishes were the Bang Bang chicken starter and the Massaman curry main, with the slow cooked lamb. The sauces in the curries we had were the best I've tasted in a long time. All in all highly recommended.More
Excellent food and service, had the duck spring rolls, Salt and chilli squid starters followed by the three cup duck, massaman lamb and egg fried rice. All was delicious. Service was very efficient. Definitely recommend
Probably the best East Asian restaurants we've eaten in for a very long time. The Duck main was exceptional, staff were discretely attentive and I cannot rate this highly enough. Definitely definitely will be back.
