If you have never tasted Persian food, you will be blown away by the cuisine at this unassuming, BYOB restaurant. From the traditional kabobs to original, Persian inspired creations, the menu is outstanding. I've tried many of the menu items and have never been disappointed. (most recently the Garlic, Eggplant and Chicken - wow!). The numerous Zagat awards are well... More

Whenever we want to take out of town guests somewhere close and guaranteed to please, we choose Orchard Market. It's also a local favorite neighborhood place. The service is great, I have never once had a bad meal. The prices are reasonable. And it's BYOB. Can't beat it!

As an appetizer my wife had the Salad Shirazi, a colorful salad of diced cucumbers & tomatoes, mint, parsley & spring onions marinated... More

I recently moved to the Towson area and have been trying out a lot of different restaurants. My boyfriend and I heard about this place and absolutely LOVED it. Our waiter (one of the owners, Jason) was charming and so kind. The food was fantastic, their famous duck dish was to die for. We will be going back and bringing... More

We have been to the Orchard Market many times. The food and service is always excellent! This time, we went there for lunch. We had the hummus appetizer that was great! The, we each had one of their pita pocket sandwichs which were also wonderful! The restaurant is located in an industrial park, but don't let that bother you! The... More

We live in Hanover, PA (not by choice) where food is bland and there is basically no culture. Sorry, but this is the truth. We frequently shop at Trader Joe's in Towson, and we were looking for an interesting ethnic restaurant in which they actually use more than 3 ingredients in their cuisine when compared to the PA Dutch cooking...

Persian food is what is served here and it is prepared and served by Persians at this restaurant patronized by many local Persians (we are not Persian). So it's no surprise that the food is very good indeed - and it's a bargain. We had the Sunday brunch buffett, something that in so many restaurants is nothing to write about.... More

We went to Orchard Market with a family member that had been there several time. It is tuck away off Joppa rd but the GPS found it. The wait staff was very attentive, the food was delicious and large potions. The dessert -The Mother In Law cake was yummy. Will visit there again when in the Towson Area.
