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...

Went here with the wife and two friends for an evening meal on a Saturday night. Front arriving to departing we had great service. Tap water provided without asking, and glasses topped up throughout the evening. Staff were attentive without being too obtrusive; they were just there when you needed them. The food was excellent. Portions are reasonably large but the quality was great. We were worried about the range of different oriental cuisines on offer (risk of "jack of all trades......master of none") but we needn't have worried. Would definitely come back again but you do need to book well in advance.

I visited The Orchid on the 28th August for a celebratory meal with one of my best friends and her two daughters. I have been here several times before and as my title says it is consistently excellent. My friends however had only ever been for the Sunday Lunch Buffet. The restaurant setting is beautiful, the staff are friendly, polite and very attentive. As we couldn't decide what to have to eat we opted for the Lotus Set Menu for 4 people which was £27.50 each, what an excellent choice it was. All the food was just beautiful and it gives you the chance to try different dishes (I nearly always go for the Green Thai curry as it's my absolute favourite!) The starters consisted of a Thai beef salad, a king prawn dish and duck spring rolls, there was not a scrap left, which speaks volumes!!! The main meals consisted of Thai Green Curry, a duck dish, mixed seafood dish, large bowel of noodles with beef in and a large bowl of fried rice. There was enough food for 6 people!! Although we did our best it was mission impossible to eat it all!! It was all beautifully presented and just delicious. The desert was fresh fruit salad which was also very lovely. The food and service was faultless and The Orchid remains my most favourite restaurant to eat in and now it's also a firm favourite of my friends!

We ate in this restaurant while staying at the Studley Hotel. Our "deal" for our stay included £50 to spend in the restaurant. We tend to play safe and opt for Italian or Mediterranean when we eat out, but the deal persuaded us to try the Orchid. We were so glad we did! The Pan-Asian menu was extensive (plenty of choice for veggies) and everything we ordered was fabulous. It was beautifully presented, and the food was delicious. The service was great, not intrusive, but very helpful e.g. advising how many dishes to order, their size etc. The restaurant itself was lovely, contemporary decor with a big outdoor dining area too. Definitely recommended.

The Orchid is a treat. The waiter knows what's in all the dishes which helps you make the best choices. Try the bang bang chicken starter, delicious. Good wine reasonably priced and comfortable surroundings.

We arrived here a little by chance and decided to have the lunch set menu. What a good choice. The menu choice was excellent with the restaurant specializing in just one or two dishes from various countries in the far east. The staff were helpful and knowledgeable and suggested a Gewürztraminer/Verdelho wine to go with the meal and what a good recommendation it was. Try it, you will be pleasantly surprised. A three course meal with two glasses of wine came to £37. Excellent value.
