Average Restaurant

The Orchid in Malahide is an average Chinese restaurant, food was okay but not exceptional and is quite pricey. If you choose for the menu and but want to have a seafood or duck dish there are always surcharges which is a little confusing. Service was okay but seemed stuck up in certain situations.

We visited the restaurant while searching for a chinese restaurant in Malahide. Overall the quality is OK, but not exceptional. The price/value ~20 Euro for the 3 course dinner (time/day limitations) is OK, otherwise I consider it a bit pricy. The restaurant is located on the first floor and if you get a table at the window you have a... More

Visited here early on a Thursday night as I was in Malahide for one night only and came across it while taking a stroll. I was attracted to the early bird €19:50 3 course menu. Choices included everything on the menu, but there was a supplement of a few euros for everything other than chicken or beef dishes. Without the... More

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 :)
