Malahide is well served with restaurants, but if it's Chinese food you are looking for you won't do better than The Orchid. The menu has something to suit all tastes and won't hurt your pocket either. Marcus and his staff are friendly , efficient and helpful. I frequently take advantage of their excellent Early Bird deal, where one can get... More

We've been loyal customers to the Orchid Chinese Restaurant for several years now. As a chef (and a fussy eater!), I can genuinely say that the quality of the food is very good in comparison to other Chinese restaurants in Malahide. For instance, they use actual roast breasts of chicken in their curry (upon request) rather than boiled chicken which... More

Pop in on a Saturday evening for a bite to eat, the food was ok not great. The staff were very friendly tho. Don't know if I'd rush back in a hurry but would maybe give it a go again.

To our surprise the restaurant was open quite late and had no problem accommodating us at 10 pm. Food was authentic tasting and freshly cooked. Beware of the portion size! Not for those on a diet :)

My infant son was making a slight noise when an elderly female customer tore into us about his noise. We were called scots gits among... More

I was in Malahide yesterday with my family (party of 10) - Five Adults - 3 Children & Two Toddlers. We were walking past The Orchid Chinese Restaurant in Malahide and we noticed a large Poster Advertisement stating "Sunday Child Eat free Promotion" (with each adult meal). We decided to go into the restaurant and book a table. We walked... More

This is the second occasion visiting The Orchid, and as before exceeded the first visit! I took my friend for her birthday midweek and even though the restaurant was quiet, the staff were excellent. We had starters and the main course, and we unable to manage dessert! Both of our choices were excellent. My friend loved it especially the way... More
