The Orchid Restaurant provides a unique dining experience combining authentic cuisine from the pacific with a sophisticated relaxed environment.
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.

We went to the Orchid for a special meal for our wedding anniversary. We also stayed at the hotel above-The Studley for 2nites.
The Orchid is a great restaurant-would highly recommend. The food was fantastic-very tasty, portion sizes were good, the ambience lovely, the staff friendly and attentive.
Overall a lovely dining experience and will definitely visit again.
The only down side was that as it is so popular booking early is recommended. We had wanted the meal at 7/7.30pm however the only available time slots were 6pm or 9.30pm. We chose 6pm and had a lovely meal.
Thank you for a lovely evening.

First impressions quite a smart place, nice friendly staff. Booked on phone for wedding anniversary meal, asked for a nice table. Disappointed to be placed in a dark corner booth (lighting is very low througout) another couple almost sat with us. You could tell we were both uncomfortable with that. Food was reasonable but not outstanding and a bit over priced (well Harrogate priced). Not what I had hoped from the evening so a little let down really.

We had a lovely evening enjoying the food and atmosphere. The duck special starter, monkfish main and pad thai noodles were delicious. We were less impressed with the veg and prawn spring rolls as the sauce was too spicy for our taste and the prawns did not seem very prevalent.

Very nice food and we enjoyed all.
Great winter place as it is quite dark and no windows.
For the summer is a bit closed in.
We would go back as the food was amazing

We ate inside, which we thought prudent given the thunderstorms, but it was very dark. The lady on the next table had to read her menu with the light in her phone.

The food was generally good, but for the second visit in a row the Curried sea bass was very badly done. Far too tough and overdone coating on the fish was overdone. Used to be my favourite dish but not any more, the cooking of this was clumsy.

Still a good place to go, but doesn’t merit the premium pricing like it did.

I would have given the Orchid 5 stars overall but the only thing I believe could have been improved was the noise levels. It was hard to hear each other over the chat of the other diners around us and the lighting could have been slightly better which was rather a little too dark for our liking. I would not let this ever stop me visiting again as the food was outstanding as was the service. Brilliant meal.

over priced , no service to speak of, just loads of staff running around clearing tables spraying glass polish in a dark dingy restaurant which is in need of refurbishment.

i have eaten tastier food from street market stalls and more interactive service from mc donalds.

The Orchid is always a little bit of an occasion. The food was good, but this time the curried sea bass was just a little heavy handed, with too much coating on the fish which made it a little tough.

Wonderful concept and great execution!
The Orchid offers dishes from a host of Asian countries including China, Thailand, Japan, Vietnam and Korea. The food is freshly cooked to order - you can watch the chefs in action on CCTV. The portions are generous and the staff are knowledgable and helpful.
There is a problem - we live about 250 miles away. Please open a restaurant near to Wells in Somerset!

We love the Orchid, and we have visited many times, but always for an evening meal or private function. However, on this occasion we went for the Sunday lunch, which is buffet style. It was fantastic. The quality of the food is the same as it always is, and there was plenty of choice, and all fresh. The dessert choices were delicious and great too. We will definitely go again, it was brilliant value.

Delicious food, really well cooked. Great depth of flavour and generous protein elements in every dish we had. Very noisy but then it was full bar 2 tables.

Only negative: when I tried to make the reservation I phoned in. The phone was picked up and immediately put on hold for 2 or 3 minutes. I could then hear the handset picked up and put straight down, hanging up on me. Bad manners. I hope they don't deal with every busy line like that.

Once we arrived staff were great though.
