We heard the Silver Soup here was absolutely delicious but did not have time to sit down and eat as we had to get back home. We took 2 large containers of it to go -and then had to smell it in the car all the way back to Sacramento. We could not wait to see if it tasted as heavenly as it smelled - and it did!

The restaurant was very busy at 1 pm on the Labor Day Monday. I would say that 75% of the customers in the restaurant when we were there were Asian. A very good sign.

I was looking for a good Asian dinner in South Lake Tahoe, and even though the outside of Orchid didn't look very appealing, I was totally satisfied by their good service and food. We had some very basic Pad Thai and Cashew Nuts dish, but they were great!! Good job!

After arriving to a very busy restaurant and eventually getting seen to and our meal brought to us, we were very impressed! The food was evidentially freshly made and tasted delicious. The serving sizes were much smaller and more appropriate compared to other restaurants we have eaten in around the area. Although the service wasn't great, the food definitely made up for it, I would recommend this to others, just don't go hungry and expect to be in and out!

I had the pumpkin curry, a house specialty, and it was delicious. My husband had a crispy fish dish which was also very good. They brought our dishes out before the appetizer and then asked if they could bring the appetizer while we ate our meal. We thought that was kind of ldd. We said no and the food came out when it was supposed to and it was still hot. To their credit, they gave is 10% off our bill to make up for the mistake.

Lunch is a great value here, under $8.00 - the ingredients are fresh and the dishes are really authentic
