Great food, not huge amounts but average. Love the food but it is a bit high in cost compared to a couple other places in the area that are much cheaper and better. Nice atmosphere though. Goid service, great egg rolls but expensive too. Used to go more often until their costs started climbing.

We have eaten at and taken out from the Orchid several times, and we have always been satisfied. Tonight was a disappointment. We called in a take-out order, and I arrived earlier than the time suggested over the telephone. The food had apparently been ready for awhile and, by the time I returned home, the noodle dish was cold. A... More

This place is a nice neighborhood hangout with excellent Asian food. Lively with a full bar and reasonably priced. Just beware that because of its proximity to the movie theater date nights are extremely busy and there can be a wait. Nice outside patio, too!

Was up in far north suburbs for a work assignment and googled to find someplace for a decent lunch. Great luck to stumble onto Orchid. Surprisingly high quality authentic Vietnamese food and super friendly service. The Vietnamese Salad was my favorite.

These are not your American/Chinese deep fried mini eggroll Spring rolls. These are cold, wrapped in Rice Paper, sort of like raw vegetarian sausage with a really thick and chewy casing. I got re acquainted with my gag response.l

My favorite Asian choice in the neighborhood.. Great Vietnamese egg rolls, superb shrimp/asparagus soup. Reasonable prices and selections during the week. Appetizer platter is enough lunch for two. Full bar.

I have passed by this restaurant for the past seven plus years without ever going in. Little did I know what I was missing. The atmosphere inside is very cute with both a bar and dining area. The food is very tasty with large portions served. Plus the menu has a lot of choices. I particularly love the lettuce wraps...so... More

Food was OK. Just not somewhere I would go out of my way to eat at again. Service was as mediocre as the food. Food was greasy and menu was not very clear that the food would be battered and deep fried.

We stopped in after seeing a movie and no one in our group knew the type of food Orchid serves. We left full with 6 extra egg rolls, and happy we took a chance. Everything we ordered was fantastic including the Orchid fried rice, spring rolls, egg rolls, and the honey sesame chicken. The service was also amazing! We will... More
