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.

Superb

My husband has been here many times but this was my first visit and it was lovely. We were seeing a show so booked for 6 pm and glad we did as the restaurant filled out in half an hour, but it was a Friday night so to be expected. The service was faultless and the food was stunning. We... read more

Me and my husband love the Orchid. It is our favourite place to eat and Friday was no exception. Staff attentive and the food was amazing (Singapore Crispy Prawns are my personal favourite)!

I've stayed at the Studley Hotel quite a few times. The key attraction is the ridiculously good Orchid Thai restaurant. Harrogate has an improving set of hotels to stay in and my first choice this week was full so I ended up at the Studley for 2 nights and on both occasions I dined at the Orchid. On night 1... More

Having read all the lovely reviews my husband and I reserved a table at the Orchid restaurant and looked forward to it. However we were left a little disappointed, yes the staff are pleasant and attentive but the whole meal felt rushed. We had only sat down 10 mins when we got the starters, followed within 5 mins of finishing... More

One of the best restaurants in harrogate. If you like oriental food, be that China, Thai (my favourite), Malay, Korean, as they cover the majority. Good service , fair value, great food, with a nice welcome bar pre meal if desired. Local to town centre for taxi or other activities.

A really good selection of Pan-Asian food. Thai style sirloin salad had a great kick to it and the main dish of prawn and chilli was very spicy, but didn't really go with the sweetness. The star of the show, however, was the mango pannacota. Would go again for a special occasion but the prices are a little on the... More

Lovely restaurant - in a basement with low ceilings- so was a little noisy - not really a place for a romantic meal for 2 . There seemed to be a lot of local regulars - which is usually a good sign - but was a little surprised by the foul language coming from mature couples. The food was good... More

We were staying at The Studley and ate at the Orchid on our first evening there. What an amazing selection of dishes - from China, Thailand, Malaysia, Philippines - we were spoilt for choice. Good atmosphere, although on this Friday night there were a few tables of 6-8 people so it did get a little noisy - not the place... More

Fantastic food and experience on a business dinner in a large group. Great bar upstairs for a pre dinner drink and superb food with great service. Set menu was great with some changes to dish handled with no fuss. The lamb pancakes were a particular favourite as was the beef with orange and pork belly. All of the meat tasted... More
