Pop in on a Saturday evening for a bite to eat, the food was ok not great. The staff were very friendly tho. Don't know if I'd rush back in a hurry but would maybe give it a go again.

To our surprise the restaurant was open quite late and had no problem accommodating us at 10 pm. Food was authentic tasting and freshly cooked. Beware of the portion size! Not for those on a diet :)

We were walking past The Orchid Chinese Restaurant in Malahide and we noticed a large Poster Advertisement stating "Sunday Child Eat free Promotion" (with each adult meal). We decided to go into the restaurant and book a table. We walked... More

This is the second occasion visiting The Orchid, and as before exceeded the first visit! I took my friend for her birthday midweek and even though the restaurant was quiet, the staff were excellent.

I real favorite for me. The Orchid is a small upstairs restaurant which offers great quality and tasty Chinese food. The service is great and the staff is friendly. I have eaten here several times and also had their takeaway service. The menu has a good variety of dishes at a good price. I would recommend this one.

Not nearly as good an atmosphere as the Wild Swan and staff are not as friendly but early bird menu gives plenty of choice and the food is good. It is very reasonably priced, I would defo go again!
