We have tried most of the Chinese restaurants in Newcastle and The Orchid never fails to impress. Great food and friendly staff. The quality of the dishes served is always of the highest standard and we can wait to return.

Me and my gf arrived at orchid on a Saturday night about 7, walked in and they seem to have an amazing plan in place. You sit at the bar/waiting area and order your food from there, once your food is ready they show you to your table instead of sitting waiting around. Now down to the food, we ordered the quarter duck wraps, there was a good portion of duck, we also roster as put mains, chilli garlic chicken and sweet and sour chicken with 2 sides of egg fried rice and noodles, again a very nice meal, will be attending again in the near future.

We came here for a work evening meal - there were 15 of us (all very loud ladies!) We opted for the Banquet at £16.80 each. We had a lovely time and enjoyed the ambiance of the place, subtle lighting and an oriental feel.

The food was delicious! Lots to chose from.

The banquet is like a list of options - you have a soup (but choose your favorite soup from the menu); you then have a platter with various options such as vege/meat; bbq or salt and pepper ribs etc.

(This is not part of the banquet) But we then had duck and pancakes which came with a lot of duck, loads of hoi sin and pancakes and cucumber and spring onions. By this point, we were all stuffed (or so we thought!!)

We then had our mains, which we all wolfed down (so much for being stuffed!) You choose your meat/vege and select the sauce you'd like it in, and it comes served with rice.

The presentation, and flavours were immense! I'd thoroughly recommend! One of the best Chinese meals I've had in this country.
