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...

I am a frequent visitor to this restaurant….my wife and I rate it at No.1 of the 279 restaurants in Harrogate. It is certainly not the cheapest, but the food is consistently outstanding, and the staff - Chris, the restaurant manager, Alan his deputy, and Jana, the beautiful and sophisticated Slovakian lady who looks after the upstairs bar, always make...

Our family visit this restaurant throughout the year, for birthdays in particular. It never disappoints! We tend to order a set menu as it gives you the opportunity to try a selected few dishes. The crispy prawns to start are the reason a number of us return! This is closely followed by the bang bang chicken and the Thai beef... More

We have visited this restaurant every time we visit Harrogate and we are never disappointed with the food or service. The food is exceptional with many tastes and flavours in every dish. We will no doubt return again during our next visit to Harrogate.

The Sunday buffet (12-2pm) is excellent. With a wide variety of good quality dishes, nice atmosphere and good service £16.90 per head all you can eat.

We drove for almost an hour to get to the restaurant. The drive was well worth it. Service was excellent and the choice of vegetarian dishes on the menu very good. Definitely will go back

Service was very good but not overpowering. Good range of food and knowledgeable staff. It was quiet when we visited, but can get noisy.

What sets The Orchid apart from other oriental restaurants for me is the service. I don't normally expect good service from oriental restaurants unless I am familiar with them, that's to say I expect bad service, just run of the mill. The service really was top notch; attentive but not overly, the staff knew the menu and the manager was... More
