Amazing Menu, excellent food

Been visiting Harrogate for years but our friends must have kept this one a secret. So hard to choose what to have from such a wide range of Asian dishes. A nice option on the mains is that you can choose a smaller size if you wish. Friendly but very professional service. Will return.

This should be no surprise to the regulars, the food and service were very good. We made a nice selection of mixed dishes from a comprehensive menu. Each dish delivered was of a high quality and extremely tasty. The crowd was buzzy which added to the general ambiance, all in all a successful evening.

Having dined many times at The Orchid we decided to eat here with some friends whilst staying in Harrogate. As usual we were blown away by the choice & quality. Just wish I lived closer so I could go more often!

We have eaten at Orchid on many occasions and have never been disappointed with the food. The service is always friendly and efficient. The only thing to be aware of is the double sitting arrangement meaning the table is required back from the first sitting, so don't be late, and book the second sitting if you want to take more...

We visited this restaurant based on how great the reviews were on TripAdvisor and from the photos of the food! All I can say is wow! At first we were given pickles at the table which was a nice touch. The menu was so appetising and I loved that various cuisines were on offer. The flavours of the food were... More

We have been to the Orchid quite a few times, and have never been disappointed. Usually, we take visiting guests to the Asian Banquet which provides a vast array of dishes from throughout that continent. Great value for money, really well cooked and with pleasant unobtrusive service.

We have eaten at The Orchid many times. Weekday lunch can be from the special menu which is very good in taste and value. Sunday lunch is a buffet where you can eat as much as you like, excellent! Evening service and menu is special with a truly oriental menu. The staff are very professional and the service excellent

We have eaten here quite a few times, they service is excellent, very slick and friendly. The choice of food is vast, if your hoping to visit at a weekend you would be wise to book. As the food is such high quality it would be difficult to recommend a particular dish I had Wasabi prawns served on a banana... More

The Orchid in Harrogate is an excellent restaurant to visit where you will find good Asian type food accompanied by fair service. The food was nice, however the service was a bit on the slow side, never the less fair, as the restaurant was very busy on this occasion it reasonable to expect the service to slow up, no doubt...
