Our chefs headed by Kenneth Poon, previously Head Chef at the Oriental Restaurant at the Dorchester London (Which held a Michelin Star for 7 years), makes our menu read like a culinary tour of the Far East: Thailand, Malaysia, Philippines, China, Singapore and Japan.


Try a Thai Green chicken curry, Hong Kong Salt and Chili Squid , Thai Steamed seabass with birds eye chillis, lime juice and spring onions and from the Philippines, Beef Steak Tagalog, match that with an our fantastic TrimBach Gewürztraminer and you will find the combination made in heaven! (….Well nearly!) Bookings essential to avoid disappointment.

The Orchid never disappoints. The Sea bass Choo Chee is outstanding. All the food is so authentic. We’ve been eating there since it opened. Love, love love it. Already looking forward to our next visit.

It’s the third year in a row for a family birthday treat. Our children love it and always enjoy trying different dishes. If you’ve never been, it’s a must in Harrogate especially if you like Asian food. The service was good especially as the restaurant was extremely busy. From ordering to getting the main course, it took an hour even though we had starters. The food was delicious!

Lovely food as usual, but I do think that the menu has been reduced too far compared to what used to be available. We tend to share our choices and if you wish to get a selection of different meats and fish etc you can be a little pushed to do this with the new slimmed down menu.

Can't be bothered writing too much for this restaurant, I have left a review on trip advisor which says it all. Food not great and service when we complained was shocking. We went on a recommendation, heard some good some bad reviews, thought we would try it and it was poor. Very fusion, not my cup of tea at all. Wouldn't recommend

Overall this was a very good experience. My wife’s main course was a little dry due to the overuse of cumin, and we told the lady who brought the bill. She consulted with chef and agreed that the dish wasn’t as it should be and removed the charge. Very well handled I thought

An overnight stay in Harrogate by way of a birthday treat. Stayed at the Studley Hotel. Apart from being a comfortable hotel and well placed for amenities in Harrogate we wanted to eat at the Orchid Restaurant as we have done previously. Great food in variety and quality, good ambience and efficient and friendly staff both for meeting and greeting and table service. The restaurant was full to capacity, no mean feat for a Tuesday. A lovely meal. Would highly recommend to friends and family.

On this occasion we were unfortunately disappointed. The very first time, from many, that the main meal was not to our liking. Far too salty and too much garlic.
We sent it back, and a replacement was offered immediately with no questions asked.
Service was excellent as usual.

As always The Orchid delivers quality food in a lovely setting. We live in Harrogate and have visited the restaurant on numerous occasions. It is consistently extremely good in all respects. In fact we are revisiting in a week's time to celebrate my 67th birthdays!
Keep up the good work.

The food never disappoints here. Excellent service and explanations of the food ie it’s ‘ hotness’ and what to eat it with.
The only downside is the service charge. I’m always uncomfortable with this, I prefer to pay my tips at my discretion. They would not have lost out.

Gorgeous food, staff are polite and helpful. One of the nicest restaurants I have been to for a while. Only negative they apply a service charge and I like to choose how much to tip. They do say optional however it felt uncomfortable but maybe that’s personal.
