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...

It's a while since I've been to The Orchid and how I've missed it. Great lunch on the fixed price menu with decent selection and quick service. That said, lunchtimes are always deserted here, in sharp contrast to the evenings when it's packed. A hidden gem for lunchtimes.

I love this restaurant. The prawn starter with mayo served hot is delightful. The sea bass is fab. Wonderful curry sauce accompliment. I have visited here several times the beef salad starter is gorgeous. I have also been to the Sunday buffet which is very good value.

Went here with the wife and two friends for an evening meal on a Saturday night. Front arriving to departing we had great service. Tap water provided without asking, and glasses topped up throughout the evening. Staff were attentive without being too obtrusive; they were just there when you needed them. The food was excellent. Portions are reasonably large but... More

I visited The Orchid on the 28th August for a celebratory meal with one of my best friends and her two daughters. I have been here several times before and as my title says it is consistently excellent. My friends however had only ever been for the Sunday Lunch Buffet. The restaurant setting is beautiful, the staff are friendly, polite... More

We ate in this restaurant while staying at the Studley Hotel. Our "deal" for our stay included £50 to spend in the restaurant. We tend to play safe and opt for Italian or Mediterranean when we eat out, but the deal persuaded us to try the Orchid. We were so glad we did! The Pan-Asian menu was extensive (plenty of... More

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...
