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...

3rd time I've been here and it's always very good. Great welcome on arrival, great mojitos in the upstairs bar (very potent!!) whilst we waited for the table, great menu with almost too much choice! Ambience in the restaurant is very lively and it's almost always busy. The starters were phenomenal...soft crab in chilli was amazing as was the beef.... More

Have been several times and it is always lovely. Wonderful food. Great service. Lovely atmosphere. You need to book as this place is deservedly busy. First choice of place to eat out in Harrogate, for lunch or dinner.

My husband and I ate here as part of our stay at the Studley Hotel. Our starters and main meals were delicious and there was a good choice of wines. The serving staff were amazing and very attentive - always smiling and very friendly. Couldn't have asked for more!

Great food and service here, would come here again and again. There are lots of lovely bistros in Harrogate but this is in a class of it's own. Highly recommended

Very nice dining area, pleasantly laid out. The menu has lots of choice and caters for varying Asian palettes. Portion size is a little confusing with small being perfectly adequate and regular being too much for the average appetite. The quality of our 2 courses was very good. Unfortunately we were both too full to sample the desserts. Maybe next... More

Not difficult to write this review - simply the best restaurant in Harrogate and possibly the best in North Yorkshire. Don't miss it.
