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...

Lovely restaurant, great food although they do so many cuisines every one is exceptional. The thing that really made our visit special was our server lee incredibly professional and friendly an absolute legend. Also a great outside area for an after dinner drink.

By far the best oriental restaurant in Harrogate. Great regular menu spiced up with weekly 'specials'. £££'s but well worth it. Booking essential

We were staying at The Studley and received a £50 voucher to be used at the Orchid so we booked a table. There is a good selection of all Oriental dishes. You can also order main meals in a "small" or "regular" serving, which I was pleased with as, after a starter, I usually struggle to finish a main meal!... More

I have to confess that we found Orchid to be a confused 'mix' of asian food and to be perfectly honest, I just don't get it. We ordered Larb Gai (thai chicken salad). I've enjoyed this dish many a time and I'm no food critic, but it was simply very strange and bore no relation to any version of the... More

This restaurant is a mixture of all Asian cuisine's and the range makes it difficult to choose between them. We were a party of 6 and we each chose items which we shared. Some regular portions were enormous and could have fed 2/3. The food tasted of flavour not msg which is the norm in most places. The only comment... More

The Orchid is the most amazing Thai restaurant, it is a high quality restaurant, which serves the most delicious food. The cocktail bar is very stylish for pre dinner drinks. The specials are very interesting and quite delicious.

Chic Thai restaurant with an ample choice of dishes on the menu. I ate inside alone , comfortably, in the very busy restaurant. Bang Bang chicken salad...so fresh and enough for two but so tasty I ate almost all of it. Service was impeccable without feeling pressure to vacate at anytime (especially as a lone diner).

We declined cocktails at the bar and opted for dinner ( reservations essential as this is a very popular restaurant ) asked for advice re: menu choices and eventually opted for the Filipino Beef Tagalog and Prawn Calabash as well as the Thai Pla Choo Chee...

We booked a table outside on a Sunday. There was no greeting as such when we arrived and we made our own way to the table. The waitress arrived and promptly dropped a tray with empty glasses. No greeting either. Then she brought all the menus in spite of the fact that there is only a buffet on a Sunday.... More
