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 is a treat. The waiter knows what's in all the dishes which helps you make the best choices. Try the bang bang chicken starter, delicious. Good wine reasonably priced and comfortable surroundings.

We arrived here a little by chance and decided to have the lunch set menu. What a good choice. The menu choice was excellent with the restaurant specializing in just one or two dishes from various countries in the far east. The staff were helpful and knowledgeable and suggested a Gewürztraminer/Verdelho wine to go with the meal and what a... More

We ate here whilst staying at hotel, and was a little apprehensive taking an 8 year old, but the food was amazing!! We ordered the lemon chicken, a black peppered steak dish, and some accompaniments & chocolate spring rolls for dessert, and it was to die for!! We eat out once a week and this was by far one of...

Been here a few times and love it! Always start with a cocktail in the bar upstairs! Well worth a visit! Staff are friendly and very knowledgable about the menu, food is delicious and setting lovely. Will be back again.

Our family took over the whole restaurant for a family event (Nephew's 21st) on a Saturday lunchtime. Delicious food, fabulous service. I went back to the bar there in the evening (after an awful visit to the Montpellier - see entry elsewhere) and it was equally good. Great service, warm staff, very comfortable place.

Group of five of us enjoyed a terrific meal at the Orchid on Saturday evening. We have not been for while but it was at least as good as I remember. First the food was delicious. Highlights for me were Bang-bang chicken starter and Lamb Pad Phet, Crispy Duck and Beef dish I can't recall but it was all very... More

Went to the Orchid for lunch. They have an 'express menu' offering 2,3 or 4 courses . We just had two - a starter and main - very good value. There were four of us and we hadn't seen each other for a while so staff gave us time to chat before asking us to order. I like spicy food... More

After a weekend on the NE coast and fish and chips galore we felt like something different. Cue an Oriental option. Having lived in Harrogate for years I had yet to try this restaurant. I have been missing out big style! First it was the best vodka martini I ever had, then it was followed by the lightest, most tasty... More

Had one of the nicest meals you could wish for. We booked this restaurant on recommendation of our hotel and were not disappointed. The food and staff were excellent. A fitting way to celebrate our anniversary.
