Tasty, healthy food in a very small, popular place

We loved the food and the service was very friendly but the wait was very long. We ate lunch there on a weekday. They had a sign posted that they would not be open on Friday & Saturday due to being short staffed. That could be why it took so long for our food to arrive. We were not expecting... read more

This is a small interesting restaurant with a couple inside tables but mostly outside. Loved the atmosphere. They quite few menu items all hand written in dense text on a blackboard outside the order window. Its hard to make a decision on what might be good. Since it all looks great. While not everyone likes the same thing, when I... More

If I had to pick one place on Orcas that I couldn't do without... It would be the Kitchen. I could eat those potstickers every day for the rest of my life. Its all fresh and organic and, after frequenting for over a decade now, I can honestly say I've never been disappointed.

Very, very fresh food, I mean from the plant to your plate in a matter of hours. Unusual, but appetizing menu. Portions a little on the small side. Felt really healthy after eating here!

The food was outstanding so fresh and spiced so that the food itself is enhanced. Loved the potstickers and most everything else on the menu. Ate there 2 times for lunch and lucky for us they catered the wedding we attended on Orcas.

Went to visit the island and my wife heard much good things about The Kitchen. We decided that it would be the place we would have our lunch. I am not usually excited about places that scream "organic this and grass fed that" but my wife is, so we decided it would be good to try. I was more than... More

Kitchen is always a great place to eat on Orcas. Everything is well prepared and tasty. Prices are reasonable. Local, organic. What's not to like?

The wait was insane--but that was by no means their fault. The kitchen was working feverishly (both in speed and temperature that day!). The food was awesome. I could eat there every day. The kid menu is something the country needs to model after. The prices were surprisingly fair despite the mostly organic/local/clean food ingredients. The only downside--we were given... More

You might wait a little while but that it because it is being cooked fresh right before your eyes, they use good local products. Excellent taste, eat and feel good about what you are eating.

The patio is a fun place to sit and people watch. Their sign says "fast-ish Asian" food, which was accurate. If you're not in a hurry, just enjoy the pretty flowers & sunny patio. I had the special that day--salmon with rice noodles and a delicious sauce. Hubby had potstickers, which were good. We enjoyed it and would go back.
