Great experience today. I had the pork Pad Thai; it was very flavorful and was a huge portion. My husband also liked what he had. We did the potstickers an app; so good! Our waiter was friendly, and all staff followed mask rules for COVID.

I had a business trip in St. Paul, Minnesota. I was meeting my team for a visit to a local university. On Sunday, we were taken to dinner by our university colleagues. They selected the Orchid Restaurant. This restaurant has a specialty in Asian Fusion...cuisine including Vietnamese, Chinese, and Thai dishes. Honestly, I’m a simple guy. I’m a meat-and-potatoes person. Therefore, I was not looking forward to this meal. However, I was surprised. I ordered the salmon entrée. The food was very good. The restaurant is a reliable place to eat good for visitors.More

Thought we’d try this restaurant based on the ratings. Didn’t quite live up to them. “i’m sorry sir, we are out of white rice” Seriously??? That’s like a gas station being out of gas!! Service was marginal, food was average. No need to return.

We love the Orchard and go often for the weekday lunch specials that go from 11-2. The food at our last visit was fantastic as always but we felt our server was rushing us. We arrived at 1:45 After Christmas shopping and our server gave...us our usual lunch menu.. A few minutes later she grabbed the menus from our hands and replaced them with dinner menus without any explanation. When we could get her attention we said we would like the menu with the lunch specials. She came back and literally threw them on our table and walked away. We did order our lunch items and were served very quickly and had our food by 2:00. As we were enjoying our food, she came up with to go boxes and asked if she could box up our food. We said, No,thank you because we were still eating. She took away our egg roll dipping sauces which we were still using and a plate with food that still had food we were eating. We felt she was just young and needed more experience so didn’t say anything.We will always go back because we always have had excellent service and food.More

My wife and i have been going to Orchid since they first opened. They are far and away the best restaurant in Lino Lakes, and also one of the best in the Twin Cities. We have had one excellent meal after another, never a problem,...always consistently excellent food. If you haven't yet eaten here, you are missing out.More

We visited friends in Stillwater and heard this was the place to eat. These friends and other friends were in the mission field in Indonesia and parts of the orient. They all agreed this was really good food and very close to authentic. So, we...had to go try it out for ourselves. My bride had the Vietnamese pancake which was delightful. I had the Black pepper steak which was so amazing! Our friends had the Orange Chicken and the Sesame Chicken which they they loved so much, they couldn't add to the conversation. Yes, it is a place I would revisit and yes, the prices are good such the value is good. Service was with a smile and attentive.More

No matter what you get the food is excellent. The egg rolls are out of this world and the fried rice is the best I ever had. Not on the menu any longer is the shrimp asparagus soup but they still make it if you...ask for it! Yummy!More

From the front end folks to the bartenders, service is great and they make a great Mojito. Servers are always friendly and on top of everything.
