Last minute booking for 7 on a Friday night. Service was efficient and the food was good, plenty of choice and arrived quite promptly. We were asked when we wanted each course. A good overall experience.

Visiting a friend who has just started work in Liverpool so none of us knew the area. We had tried to get to another Chinese restaurant but it was full so came here instead. Nice place, nice surroundings but it was nothing special and we felt very rushed to order hence we ordered what we knew as didn't have chance... More

Made reservation for party of ten. Table was waiting for us when we arrived. Drinks were served. Appetizers all around. All ten meals came out perfect. Entire staff did a fabulous job. Many thanks.

For so long I have had people rave over this restaurant, I have had to go for family meals, it would never be my first choice. The overpriced food is bland and the staff miserable. I get the feeling that the owners think they have something special. I dine out a lot, and trust me there is nothing special about... More

After visiting this restaurant a few years ago, and having excellent food and service, we decided it would be the ideal venue for a mid week birthday celebration. What a disappointment. The majority of the food we ordered tasted as though it had been re heated and was dry with the meat dishes very tough, prompting one dish to be... More

We were aware that The Orchid Garden wasn't as good since it changed hands. However we were disappointed to be served stale prawn crackers, tasteless soup and a bottle of wine dumped on the table and we had to ask for glasses as I certainly wasn't going to drink it out the bottle. However the most shocking was a sign... More

Booked a table for 2 for a Saturday a week in advance telling them it was for a birthday. Thought we might get a nice table but when arriving at 8pm the place was overcrowded. We were escorted to our table right at the back of the room in the alcove leading to the downstairs toilets. At the time, these... More

This is my second assessment of this restaurant. The last time we visited the family were very disappointed as to how this great restaurant had changed, not for the better, under the new management. However, I am glad to say it is getting back to it's best, as it was under Stan and Jane's management. The food had vastly improved,... More

The locals know how good this restaurant is, so this is for you, the visitor. I have to declare my interest as an absent scouser who visits Liverpool on a regular basis. The New Orchid is a place of enjoyment and celebration. The service is exceptional and the food is a good standard Chinese. Don't worry if the place is... More
