My friend and I dined at the Orchard Theatre for the first time and are happy to say that we were not disappointed. We had the pre-show set menu and our choice of food was very good and well presented. We were able to relax and enjoy our dinner without feeling rushed in a good atmosphere. Will definitely dine at... More
