About

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.

Perennially popular asian fusion restaurant, though I can't really see why. Covers a lot of bases of FE food, so offers a lot of choice...perhaps that's it? Food is OK in my book, hence 3* but not outstanding.

We were all delighted with the overall experience, The food,service and drinks were first class. The restaurant was a little dark which made reading the menu difficult. The noise was moderate but two large parties near our table were just enjoying themselves and did not spoil our evening.

As usual, the food was absolutely spot on. As it was Christmas eve, and for only 2 of us we slightly over ordered ( in 2 starters, 2 mains (regular not large) 2 sides, 3 rice, a beer to start and 2 bottles of wine) it was quite expensive at £170, but worth every penny, as the food is absolutely top notch, and the £13 a bottle more expensive wine is also worth the upgrade. Not for everyday dining, but a special treat for us .

Really enjoyed going to The Orchid. The food was delicious - tasty, well presented and just the right amount. Lovely ambience, with a very slight downside that the menus are hard to read in the low light. The screen showing the chefs at work in the kitchen is a nice touch. Staff friendly and attentive. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed a superb meal especially as it was my wife’s birthday. It is a venue which we use for special occasions and yet again The Orchid did not disappoint. The food is special with wonderful flavours and textures together with excellent service. Thank you The Orchid for making our evening so enjoyable.

Excellent as always. Lovely food. Missed the pickled vegetables as an appetiser (first time we haven't had them) and also thought prawn crackers were complimentary but they weren't. Lived in Harrogate 15 years and this is the main restaurant we would come back to and recommend to others.

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.
