This was my first visit here and most certainly won't be the last! Having travelled extensively in Asia, I can honestly say the food here is truly authentic and the quality unbeatable. The portions are also very generous for this type of restaurant. The staff were all so attentive, and made us feel very welcome and looked after in true... More

We returned to the Studley at the weekend for our 9th wedding anniversary dinner at The Orchid, have stayed and eaten there when we got married. The food was amazing - as good as we remember. We had the soft shell crab for starters (always was my favourite.) Play choo chee and weeping tiger for mains. The service and food... More

Was recommended to try this restaurant by friends. Great Asian food with a variety of dishes coming from different Asian countries. The restaurant is obviously very popular, so book as early as possible to avoid disappointment. Booked days ahead and was offered either an early or late sitting, all other times were booked. Took the 6pm sitting and the restaurant... More

We booked into the Studley hotel and they had a free table for the restaurant that night. We decided to give it a try and wow, we're so pleased we did. Absolutely faultless from the staff to the food quality. We will definitely be back again.

Very extensive menu. The food was absolutely beautiful. We would recommend that you book to avoid disappointment. One of the locals we spoke to said that if he could he would eat there every night.

When visiting the orchid for my father's birthday we had high hopes, and The Orchid did not disappoint. All the staff were very friendly and happy to help with any problems, and the food was simply sublime - the belly pork and weeping tiger were our favourites, they were faultless. A fantastic meal all round, I would give it 10/10... More
