An excellent taste of the Orient

Excellent variety of Thai and Chinese food beautifully cooked and served. The service, as in the rest of the hotel, was excellent.

The food here is amazing, especially the king prawn starter. I've ordered a variety of different dishes and never been disappointed in any. The bar upstairs is nice and it's worth going early and having one of their fantastic cocktails. Just one though, they're proper cocktails not the watered down ones you get in other places so they're strong! This... More

I have a mission in life now and that is to win the lottery so i can eat here every night, not that it's over priced but just so I could afford to eat here every night.

I was expecting the usual selection of Thai dishes however was highly impressed by the wide variety of the menu, incorporating not only Thai but also Japanese, Hong Kong, Singaporean and Malaysian favourites. With such temptingly described dishes I was salivating and already planning my next visit with such an extensive menu to have to choose from. All our orders... More

We used the Orchid as guests of the hotel it is part of, for our evening meal. We had a £30 voucher as part of our room deal and I thought that probably meant the restaurant was overly expensive. WRONG!! It was excellent VFM> I also thought it probably meant it was some sort of avant garde eaterie with Blumenthal... More

We come to to Harrogate annually for a trade conference and it would not be the same without a visit to the orchid.The service is fantastic and the food is wonderful. I can recommend the stater of lamb pancakes and the Massaman curry, but you can not choose badly here.Before your meal visit the bar upstairs for a cocktail .

On a warm day in Harrogate there was nothing better than the lovely and modern surroundings of the Orchid. The food is of course the main thing though, and it is amazing, fresh tasting and spicy food beautifully presented. All of the food we had was delicious, from crispy rolls, to fresh tasting soups, flavourful stir fries and delectable deserts.... More

We have been here as a family for a few years now and it is always amazing, the specials are always interesting and the classics such as the bang bang chicken, beef steak Tagalog and duck in plumb sauce never get old!

What a disappointment. I can only give this five stars on TripAdvisor. We have eaten at The Orchid on a number occasions previously but not for a couple of years. Just so happened we were in town over the Easter weekend and took the opportunity to visit again. From start to finish, from the initial greeting to leaving this was... More

Business trip staying at the White Hart Hotel. When we arrived our table wasn't quite ready so we all had a drink in the bar upstairs; sophisticated and intimate surroundings. The menu was vast and varied. We ordered a variety of dishes to share and each dish was super tasty. I glanced at the bill and it was very pricey,... More
