“Stunning ceramic knobs”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

Yameen at Orchid House has been so helpful and everything about the transaction has worked smoothly. The knobs I ordered arrived in perfect time (exactly 5 days) and they are a beauty!

I went to visit this cute shop in person back in Dec 2012 and I bought a couple of things back then and then decided to try the online experience and it's been delightful!

I'm looking forward to my next purchase at Orchid House.

“Lovly little shop”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

It's a nice tea shop with a huge variety of items to choose from.since the items are so nicely arranged it's so easy to find out. Galle fort has developed so much some times you may find the same items cheaper or half the price in some shops. But the speciality of this shop is that the owner will always help you in finding the piece that you always wanted.
Like other shops in fort bargaining is not possible in this shop, it has a strict marked price concept. Other than that it's a nice shops filled with little things that you can always take away to present.

“Boutique Tea and Gifts”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

We were very happy with our purchases from this well stocked shop. The white tea was reasonable and came in both a caddy or package. The toys were well made and there were some nice shirts and blouses upstairs. The front of shop assistance was very helpful.

“1 stop shop for the most beautiful jewellery & souvenirs”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

I think I made about 3 or 4 visits to Orchid House during my stay around the area at the beginning of November. The shop is very inviting (nice and cool inside), and if you love silver jewellery and gemstones - then WOW! this is the place to go. Such fantastic and original designs, & great workmanship, really really stunning. Also a very relaxing place in which to spend time trying on, and then deciding which is the ring (or rings in my case!) for you. As I was at the end of my trip looking for gifts for friends and family back home it was the ideal place for picking up creative, interesting (and transportable) souvenirs. Awesome shop. Loved it.
