My friends and I have been eating at the Orchard Market and Café since they opened their doors over 25 years ago. At the time, it was as much a market as a café containing a couple of dry goods shelves, a refrigerated display cases or two, and a few tables -- which made the delicious food even more surprising....

We were told about this place by some friends. Went with them tonight and it was delicious. I can't tell you how good it was you just have to go try it. Super friendly staff. You really just need to go. Can't wait to go back

We went out to Orchard Market after being completely bored of the food selection in the Towson area. It was a great decision! Orchard Market is hidden, but not at all difficult to find, we suggest using a GPS to make it easier. The staff at Orchard Market was extremely attentive and the restaurant had a great atmosphere. I ordered... More

Nine of us met here for the first time. We had a wonderful lunch. We all tried the buffet with the Aash lentil and bean soup; the hummus; the eggplant with artichoke salad; the tomato and feta cheese salad; a tossed salad with house dressing; the chicken and ground beef kabob with onions, peppers, and tomatoes; and the lamb Bademjune...

Jason and his family and workers dish up the best Persian food around. Never had a bad meal and bring your own bottle! I highly recommend one of their choice kabobs or start with one of the great appetizers, my favorite is their hummus. Orchard Market never disappoints!

As noted by others, this place is not easy to find. Fortunately, we have family members who live nearby and eat here often. We were a large group (7) who arrived fairly late. We were welcomed warmly, and the waiter/owner was very helpful. He recognized that we were a hungry bunch, and kept the warm pita coming to go with... More
