We had lunch there today. The vegetarian menu is ample and very well prepared. Service was quick but we didn't feel rushed even during a busy lunch hour. Due to its small size, the place is a little noisy, but the background music was folk so I didn't mind. Considering the portion size, we felt the price was reasonable. Would definitely return when we are in Frederick.

I checked out the menu online before going, so I wasn't surprised. But I really expected better quality given the whole theme seems to be fresh and healthy.

I ordered the Thai stir fry with chicken added. When my plate arrived, it looked like something that came out of a box. Like one of those asian meals that you add water and microwave...

The bowl looked uninviting. A pile of orange coated stuff with a little pile of raw/cold bean sprouts on top. When I took a bite, it burned my tongue. I have a strong suspicion that my plate got popped into a microwave before being brought to the table. I have never put food in my mouth that was that hot except when I microwave it at home.

The noodles underneath were overcooked and mushy. There was no "Thai" flavor or any hint of expected heat to the dish. In fact the overall flavor of the dish was vaguely Italian. I would almost believe that there was cheese in the sauce.

It wasn't bad, but I won't be returning. The Orchard didn't live up to expectations.

My Japanese Stir Fry looked more like a bowl of fried rice. Although it was tasty, I would've liked more veggies.

From the main course, the sides, the drinks, and the deserts, this place has many healthy, but delicious options! My husband and I cannot wait to return!

The food was decent, but the final bill was more than I thought it was worth.
