The one thing we can always be sure of when we go to the Orchard Market is consistency. Jason and his staff have created a most welcoming and delightful atmosphere for dining. We were warmly greeted by Jason. Our friends started with Sauteed Bulgarian Feta,...which is soft, creamy Bulgarian sheep’s cheese melted over farm tomatoes and onions and topped with black olives; served with warm pita slices. Their entrees were the Barg (a skewer of butterflied beef tenderloin with grilled tomato & onion, seasoned with sumac) with half salad and half basmati rice; and the Chicken Panir Sabzi (a boneless chicken breast sauteed with onions, mushrooms, artichokes in a melted feta and herb sauce) along with basmati rice. My husband had the Soltani (one full skewer of butterfly-cut beef tenderloin and a skewer of finely ground beef grilled with tomato & onion, seasoned with sumac) with half salad and half basmati rice. I decided to try something new to me and ordered one of their specials. It was the Pistachio Chicken (a boneless breast of chicken in a smokey garlic and cayenne and herb sauce with mushrooms, herbs and pistachios) along with basmati rice. We all agreed that our dinners were scrumptious and filling. BYOB for us is always a plus.More

Wow, Jason, the owner of Orchard Market, put out an offer on Facebook we could not refuse! Buy one entrée and get one at half price for dine-in guests on Wednesday and Thursday nights! Jason warmly greeted us when we arrived. The restaurant is beautifully...decorated and inviting. The tables are properly spaced for quiet dinner conversation. We met my sister and her husband for dinner, and we both were treated to the offer. We started with the Mango Shrimp (lots of jumbo tiger shrimp sauteed with onions and vegetables in a sweet & spicy Indian mango chutney sauce) served with pita bread. My sister and brother-in-law have been coming to this restaurant for a very long time. My sister had her favorite – the Lamb Bademjune, which is a boneless leg of lamb in a tangy tomato stew with eggplants and pickled sour grapes. Our brother-in-law had the special of Paella Persian Style, which was loaded with shrimp, scallops, mussels, clams, fish, calamari, chicken and vegetables in a garlic curry sauce and basmati rice and herbs. My husband and I both enjoyed our favorites as well. He had the Barg (a skewer of butterflied beef tenderloin with grilled tomato & onion, seasoned with sumac with half salad and half rice.) I had the Seafood Advieh – a dish of Mahi-Mahi, shrimp & scallops simmered in a tomato-based sauce with Persian Advieh spices (cinnamon, cumin, cardamom, ginger & ground rose petals). (Advieh means curry in Farsi) with artichokes and peas. The portions were very generous. The entrees were beautifully prepared, presented and all came with basmati rice. We love restaurants with BYOB and no corkage fee. Thank you for a delightful dining experience. We will be back soon.More

This place is a hidden gem. We have dined in the Baltimore fore 40+ years and only heard about The Orchard Market recently from a friend. The food is outstanding! Portions are huge. Fish and vegetables are fresh. ALWAYS enough to take some home for...tomorrow. And what could be better than BYOB when Total Wine Is 1/4 mile away? We have wonderful meals there and the bill is so much cheaper when you’re not buying drinks! Don’t go if you are in a hurry……they have a small kitchen and overworked staff, which adds to the charm. If you expect speed records over the best food go to Olive Garden. It’s more your style.More

Found this restaurant due to Trip Advisor and Yelp. A bit off the main road with no signage until right in front of restaurant. Great service and food recommendations by Jason. Very generous portions. Had the chicken pita dishes. Would come again! Wish this was...close to my hometownMore

My friends and I just ate at Orchard Market & Cafe. We all ordered the Salmon dinner. This included the good size piece of Salmon, perfectly cooked - topped with almonds, grilled vegetables and basmati rice on the side. There were also 2 sauces -...a yogurt sauce with herbs and a spiced tomato sauce. We all enjoyed it very much. Two of us could not finish the salmon. The leftovers were great. My favorite dish there is their vegetarian soup Aash that is served with warm pita bread. I think of it as comfort in a bowl. I am looking forward to getting that again soon.More

Because of the pandemic and our age, we have not dined inside this restaurant for a very long time. We did enjoy carry out on several occasions. We were so happy to be able to return to the Orchard Market & Cafe with my sister...and her husband. They have been coming to the Orchard Market for over 30 years. We were warmly greeted and seated. What we like about the Orchard Market is that it is quiet, offers BYOB with no corkage fee, and their delicious food. We decided to share two appetizers: Mango Shrimp, which was 8 jumbo tiger shrimp sauteed with onions and vegetables in a sweet & spicy Indian mango chutney sauce with pita bread; and the Mango & Pear Salad, which was mixed greens with slices of mangoes and pears with Bulgaria feta cheese and a pomegranate vinaigrette dressing. We were off to a great start! My husband chose the Barg for his main course - a skewer of butterflied beef tenderloin with ½ salad and ½ basmati rice. I enjoyed the Chicken Panir Sabzi, which was boneless chicken breast with onions, mushrooms, and artichokes in a melted feta and herb sauce. My sister always orders Lamb Bademjune, a boneless leg of lamb in a tangy tomato stew with eggplant & pickled sour grapes with Basmati Rice. My brother-in-law savored the Garlic Eggplant Chicken - leg and breast of bone-in chicken in a garlic tomato sauce with eggplant; topped with sour cream and paprika - also served with basmati rice. We all thoroughly enjoyed our dinners. It was a most enjoyable evening. Thank you.More

We visited to celebrate my husband's birthday. He enjoys trying different cuisines. Our server was the former owner who was very helpful with recommendations. We both enjoyed our choices. We shared a dessert of cake filled with fresh fruit and whipped cream. YUM! They don't...serve alcohol, but allow BYOB without a corkage fee. Many of our fellow patrons were assisted with wine service. As it was our first visit, we were unaware. However we did enjoy some cardamom hot tea.More

Last night we had the most delightful time at the Orchard Market. Jason and his staff are always so welcoming. There were 5 in our party and Daphne managed to keep our order straight. My husband and I shared a Mango & Pear Salad which...was mixed greens with slices of mangoes and pears with Bulgaria feta cheese and a pomegranate vinaigrette dressing. It was very tasty, except the pears and mangos were too hard (not fully ripened). My husband chose the Barg for his main course – a skewer of butterflied beef tenderloin with grilled tomato & onion; seasoned with sumac. I decided to try something new to me. I had the Chicken Panir Sabzi which was boneless chicken breast with onions, mushrooms, and artichokes in a melted feta and herb sauce. I was thrilled with my choice. It was loaded with flavor. We all enjoyed our meals. What is especially nice about the Orchard Market is that you can BYOB with no corkage fee. Thanks, Jason, for a fun and delicious evening!More

We've been dining at the Orchard Market & Café for more than 25 years and have NEVER been disappointed in the service, quality and quantity of cuisine provided. Today we ordered the grilled Caspian Chicken breast in a large pita bread with tomato, pickle, lettuce,...fried onion and melted provolone cheese accompanied with the cucumber-yogurt sauce. I've enjoyed this scrumptious dish many times before. My partner ordered and thoroughly enjoyed the Chicken Fesenjune dish with its traditional and very tasty Persian walnut-pomegranate sauce along with a rice pilaf. Our waitress was pleasant and refilled our cardamom iced-tea beverage frequently. The menu prices remain very reasonable.More

It has been some years since we visited the Orchard Market/Cafe, but a meeting in the area reminded me how much we always enjoyed the food. So I looked it up and was happy to find the restaurant still functioning. We ordered carryout, although there...were a few appropriately spaced tables inside. Every dish from appetizer to dessert was as tasty as I remembered. There were a variety of appetizers and different groupings of main dishes from kabobs and newer cuisine to traditional stews and rice. I stuck to the traditional starting with Haleem Bademjune, a spread of eggplant & beans with sour cream, garlic, walnuts & spices. This came with two large pita. Aash-o-reshteh is one of my all time favorite soups with sun-dried herbs, lentils, red kidney beans, chickpeas & persian noodles. The Chicken Fesenjune was poached and broke into tender pieces, no knife needed. It was served in the traditional pomegranate-walnut sauce with saffron topped rice. The Persian Baklava (Baghlava) sprinkled with dried cherries and candied orange zest was a perfect finish. The order was promptly ready within about 15 minutes of my calling. There is plenty of parking, and the staff are courteous and friendly.More

When Jason decides to offer a special – he goes all out. We were delighted to take him up on his offer of Buy One Entrée – Get One Free if you order before 6:00 PM. It does not get much better than this! We...placed our order and went to pick it up. The food was packaged so well – no spills or drips. It was piping hot. We thoroughly enjoyed the Barg and the Seafood Advieh. I was able to enjoy two meals out of the Seafood Advieh. There is something about the way they season their dishes that brings out the best in them and delights our pallets.More

In an effort to support one of our favorite local restaurants during the Coronavirus outbreak, we ordered take out. We have dined at the Orchard Market many times and thoroughly enjoy the owner, Jason. It was so easy. We just called the restaurant in the...early afternoon and placed our order for pick-up at 6:00 PM. We just want to remind everyone not to forget to leave a generous tip for Jason and his staff who are working so hard to provide food for all of us. It is a great way to show your appreciation to the restaurant and its staff! My husband always enjoys the Barg - a skewer of butterflied beef tenderloin with grilled tomato & onion, seasoned with sumac. We asked for half rice and half salad, which they did for us. The beef tenderloin was seasoned and cooked perfectly. I had the Seafood Advieh, which normally comes with Mahi Mahi, but tonight, had salmon - along with shrimp, scallops and artichokes simmered in a tomato-based sauce with Persian Advieh (Advieh means curry in Farsi). The addition of cinnamon, cumin, cardamom, ginger spices & ground rose petals made the dish burst with flavor. We really enjoyed our dinners. Thank you Jason!More
