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...

We had a private room as we did 2 years ago and the service was impeccable. They catered to everyone's requirements and service was very efficient. The food, as always, was devine and everyone passed... More

I booked this restaurant on a recommendation from a local as I was visiting harrogate for the weekend with my partner. The staff were really attentive and informative. They advised we chose the smaller dish as opposed to the standard and it was plentiful - without trying to get us to take the more expensive dish. The food itself was... More

The taxi driver pointed it out saying it was the best place in Harrogate. He wasn't far wrong as it was very very good. It is billed as 'pan Asian' the the wonderfully varied menu had delights from across Asia. The service is exceptional and the food prepared fresh as you can watch on the tv screen showing the kitchen... More

Very fast, speedy service designed to turn punters around quickly did not detract from an excellent meal. Top quality, superb flavours. We eat out a lot and are real foodies. I would put this in my top 10 all time great meals.

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
