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.

Have enjoyed the Orchid many times over the last twenty years :the food is always good and the service is terrific.The downside is the noise level .For groups this doesn't seem to be a problem but for couples celebrating an anniversary there is a need for a quieter area

1st night of 4 in Harrogate and this restaurant was recommended by friends who live here, they said it was good but it's much more than good, having read the reviews we settled on 3 starters each, perfect and wine at reasonable restaurant prices.
Staff are friendly but courteous and nothing was two much trouble, went to a much more well known Italian the following night and spent a lot more money but the Orchid is far superior and the one we still talk about.

Would go again but would just choose more starters as mains. Excellent Bang Bang Chicken! Sauces on mains were overpowering so you could not actually taste the meat / fish and too much so dish was flooded.
It was busy especially for Tuesday night which shows majority of people must be happy with what they are served, did notice a lot of people did seem to only order one course but the portions are large!

Excellent service in a pan-asian restaurant with good choice of cooked-to-order dishes. Comfortable size and nice ambience. Has it's own off-street parking as part of the Studley Hotel and easy walking distance to/from Harrogate Town Centre. Certainly one of the best eateries in town!

Beautiful food, BUT I ordered vegetarian plates, and got served (and accidentally ate) meat. Our waiter preceded to blame it on me for not telling him I was vege 🙈 😡 - ridiculous, he just didn’t listen to my order correctly, or took note of my menu pointing when he took it down wrong twice.

Good job the gentleman on front of house was outstanding and rectified the situation professionally and apologetically.

The food was excellent 👌🏻 but my 11year vegetarian streak came to an end 👎🏻

Brilliant food as ever even though its a bit sly of them to add a 10% service charge on every bill (and they put it at the top of the bill where you wouldn't particularly notice it!)

We dined in The Orchid restaurant for 2 consecutive evenings as we were staying at the hotel. It was quite noisy as it is a very popular place and was busy - so maybe not the best place for a quiet meal. Over the 2 evenings we tried 5 different starters and 6 main dishes. Every one was delicious and we would happily have eaten there again if we had stayed longer. If you like asian food this is a fantastic restaurant.
