Our family has been choosing to come to The Orchid for a few years now. You can eat in the restaurant, or get take out, but it's always the same quality. There are many diverse items to choose from on the menu. Our favorite is their spring roll appetizers with their peanut sauce. Best I've ever had! They also have... More

Had the pad Thai and it was amazing. Went here at 7 pm on Sunday night and the parking lot was packed. The prices were on the higher side, but the food portions were huge. The service was extremely friendly.

Juli and I just visited The Orchid in White Bear Lake last Friday, 08/19/16. We just finished a movie matinee, and decided to walk across parking lot to eat. I had not been here in a few years because I had moved several miles away. However, It was an extremely pleasant surprise! Service was perfect, and waiter had even provided... More

Excellent choice for dinner. Extensive menu and very friendly wait staff who were happy to customize spice levels & ingredients. My spicy sizzling eggplant with shrimp was delicious. Our whole family, including our non-adventurous 10 year old, loved our meal. If we lived closer, we'd be regulars here.

We try to eat here at least once every time we come to The Cities to visit relatives. It's a really nice Asian restaurant with a great selection of dishes an they use white chicken meat for all but two of their many chicken entrees. But the one thing that keeps me from giving that last star is consistency. I'm... More

They serve Vietnamese-French food here. I used to live in the area, and have since moved away. But when we are in town visiting family, I HAVE to get the cream cheese wontons. They are the best I've ever had. I also stick with the sweet and sour chicken - again, just the best. I love the sauce, the chicken... More

My husband and I went out for a lunch and they have an excellent lunch deal for only $9.50/person that comes with a choice of an appetizer, fried rice, and a choice of an entree. Everything was very tasty. We love spicy food, and the toasted sesame chicken was a perfect blend of spicy and sweet. The egg rolls were... More

Orchid has the best egg rolls. They are crispy and flavorful. I am obsessed with their Snappy Honey with Chicken. My family always orders the General. They are consistently delicious every time we go. The service is always great. The restaurant is clean and comfortable. Can't get enough of Orchid!

Awhile back I had a bad experience with take out from this restaurant and gave it a bad review. When we mentioned our issue to the management they promptly surprised us with a gift certificate. We used that certificate tonight and loved every minute. There was a wait for a table, but the hostess was professional and the drinks in... More

Have known about this restaurant for a long time but never had tried it. After going to a movie at the nearby theater, my wife and I thought we would check it out. My wife had the seafood combo and I went with a reliable Kung Pao Chicken and we both upgraded to the fried rice. Both were very good.... More
