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...

This restaurant is usually excellent but on this special occassion NYE we were let down by the food and wine. Not the usual food, a little different & wasn't a nice surprise for me and my party. It was a set menu & wasn't cheap. Wouldn't do it again.

From arrival onwards we were treasted to immaculate servcice and stunning food. Although some reviews expressed concern over the apparent diversity of the menu and possible problems with a cohesive menu, the food that we ordered was exceptional. For the level of service and quality of the food, the price is very reasonable. We ate the Tempura Tiger Prawns -... More

It's a while since I've been to The Orchid and how I've missed it. Great lunch on the fixed price menu with decent selection and quick service. That said, lunchtimes are always deserted here, in sharp contrast to the evenings when it's packed. A hidden gem for lunchtimes.

I love this restaurant. The prawn starter with mayo served hot is delightful. The sea bass is fab. Wonderful curry sauce accompliment. I have visited here several times the beef salad starter is gorgeous. I have also been to the Sunday buffet which is very good value.
