Description: The eponymous Orchid Restaurant, Harrogate at it's inception was one of the first pan Asian restaurants in the UK and is now well established in the North Yorkshire region and beyond.The menu at Orchid Restaurant draws heavily on the influences of true oriental flavours in a modern style. Created by Bokmun Chan, this special setting has been recaptured not only through the menu, but also it's mango and dark wood interiors, separated by Japanese lattice style screens. The brigade is managed under the watch of Kenneth Poon, former Michelin Head Chef of the Dorchester Hotel.The Orchid opened in Harrogate in May, 2001 and has since won many awards and accolades for it's cuisine, presently holding 2 rosettes.The Orchid has become synonymous with excellent quaity pan-Asian cuisine and professional service for many years. Why wait, come and enjoy the experience...

“Exceptional food and lovely atmosphere”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

We had a fabulous evening at the Orchid Restaurant with 8 friends celebrating my husband's 50th birthday. We had pre-drinks in the OBar which was lively and had a good atmosphere then had dinner in the lovely Buddha Room where the food was exceptional and the service great.

“Monday Night………….it was packed!”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Having had a long weekend in Harrogate we were having difficulty choosing somewhere to eat on the Monday evening but Tripadvisor steered me in the direction of the Orchid; I am so glad I did. Played it on the safe side and booked a table; again so glad I did because it was packed. Usually places that offer multiple cuisines, albeit from the same region, fall short of the mark and get it wrong. That’s not the case here. The menu is varied and from the dishes we tried very tasty and full of fresh flavours. One of the dessert wines sold here, Elysium Black Muscat, is out of this world.

“Consistently Superb”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

That is it: the food and service are consistently first class. Chris & Francois run the operation flawlessly. We preferred the old menu but it is still top drawer

“Consistently wonderful”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

Hosted a small private business dinner for 6 in the Buddha room from the Chinese New Year special menu with accompanying wines and wow were we looked after well.

The food was as superb as it always is and nice sometimes to try different dishes. The service we received was first class and certainly at the fine dining level, making for a delightful evening.

Thank you to Bokmun and your Team, you never cease to deliver.

We are glad we booked because the restaurant was full when we turned up at 7pm. Great service, food very good, and good atmosphere. Would definitely return.
