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...

The Orchid has been consistently excellent for years, but with Chris now in charge, even better. Four of us enjoyed a range of dishes on the table to share, with rice and noodles. Excellent quality, fantastic flavours and the best in Harrogate. Highly recommended.

My family and I have been visiting this restaurant for every birthday/anniversary/special occasion for years now. If you are a fan of Asian cuisine then The Orchid is a must! The best and most fresh I have ever had. This place really is a treat you wont be disappointed. Food, décor and service is all top notch. Highly recommended :-)

Food quality good, prices reasonable. Just watch out if you ask for water, they keep topping up your glass, bringing more and more (chargeable) bottles.

Impressive and excellent gastronomic experience which is well worth repeating. The choice is superb and the quality of the cooking and materials is just right. One thing to remember is that this is Yorkshire and you get huge portions. Next time we will order a slightly less!

Recently visited with friends for a Christmas gathering and it was fantastic. We took on the set Christmas menu and the food was great. Varied, plentiful and most importantly delicious. This is not a cheap restaurant, but it is worth every penny. Can't wait for my next visit.

The food was well prepared and presented. Very tasty and fair value. It's not that cheap, but certainly represents value for money. Would certainly return.

Great find, went with my other half and really enjoyed our meal. The only negative was we felt a little rushed. Yes we visited during a busy period however we ate earlybut still felt pushed. Will return maybe at a quieter time...
