This is a local place that always delivers good food. The Thai Basil Chicken is my favorite and is never disappointing.

The cream cheese wontons are the best we've ever had! The egg rolls and chicken lo mein are also amazing. Service has always been good, although some of the waiters are a little odd. Overall, I highly recommend eating here!

Modern decor and pleasing atmosphere. Creative menu. We had the Orchid fried rice with seafood. Delicious. As was the chicken curry. Will definitely go back. Service was attentive.

We must have hit the place at shift change time. Our greeter seated us and we never heard from anyone else for over twenty minutes. We finally left. Previously, we enjoyed the pad tai and won ton soup there, but it clearly wasn't worth waiting indefinitely. We probably won't ever go back.

We have been going here for at least 8 years and have never been disappointed. We have tried most items on the menu but often go back to a couple of favorites. For appetizers the spicy oyster wings and cream cheese wontons are a must. For entree's my favorites include Snappy Honey Shrimp, Vietnamese Tamarind Prawns, Pad Thai and Spicy... More

This was always my favorite Asian restaurant in the area until the last visit. Instead of raising the prices slightly (which we all expect) and printing new menus, they chose to cut down on portion size and the amount of meat in the dishes. Spring rolls were MUCH smaller than before and there was very little chicken (but lots of... More

We recently went to Orchid restaurant for the first time and I was not expecting it to be that good! It is in a strip mall in White Bear Township just by the movie theater. When we walked in, we were immediately greeted and I was impressed with how clean and orderly it was. It also has a decent bar... More

4 of us went on a Sunday for lunch and shared two appetizers. Spring Rolls and Walnut Shrimp, and three entrées the roasted eggplant with scallops, a beef dish, and sweet and sour pork. This restaurant is light and airy, the service was excellent and we will definitely go again.

Atmosphere: Do not believe all those haters out there with their 1-3 star reviews. This place is not your typical Asian restaurant. The sheer volume of patrons who frequent this place attest to the above statement. First off, the entrance is adorned with a beautiful orchid painting and plants. The restaurant is subdivided into a relaxed bar area with multiple... More
