About Orchid Restaurant at the Studley Hotel

The eponymous Orchid Restaurant, Harrogate at its inception was one of the first pan Asian restaurants in the UK and is now well established in Harrogate and beyond.
The menu at Orchid Restaurant draws heavily on the influences of true oriental flavours in a modern style. Created by Bokmun Chan, this special setting has been recaptured not only through the menu, but also it's mango and dark wood interiors, separated by Japanese lattice style screens. The brigade is managed under the watch of Kenneth Poon, former Michelin Head Chef of the Dorchester Hotel.

The Orchid opened in Harrogate in May, 2001 and has since won many awards and accolades for it's cuisine, presently holding 2 rosettes.

The Orchid has become synonymous with excellent quality pan-Asian cuisine and professional service for many years. Why wait, come and enjoy the experience...

A truly memorable meal in a vibrant,bustling restaurant.All staff were very attentive and the only slight negative was that we had a 45 minute wait between first and second course.Would definitely book again.

Lovely meal, the food and service were both fantastic. It was really nice of the staff to let me bring in a cake and surprise my friend on her birthday.

Lovely meal and attentive staff but it all seemed a bit chaotic and was really noisy. The bar was loaded with dirty glasses and this is the first thing you see when you walk into the restaurant and so it did not give a very good first impression. Would go back but probably at lunch time when it may be less busy ?

I visited the Orchid restaurant with my daughter Sarka, who worked there for 7 months, most recently in March 2016 before moving to abroad. When she visited me now, she wanted to have dinner with me and remember her work here and meet her colleagues who worked with her at the time. She met her colleague Kim, was so happy! We were enchanted by the wonderful atmosphere, friendly service and delicious food. The Japanese girl Chisato was taking care of us all the time, served us on a professional level and with great communication. It was a glamorous evening here, and my daughter had taken wonderful memories from here. I am very glad that we decided to spend dinner here together and we will definitely come back here again. I recommend this restaurant to everyone, especially for the indescribable taste of great food and drinks and a pleasant atmosphere here. Thank you all for a nice evening! Hana.

This was our 2nd visit. We noticed a change in the service for the worst Im sorry to say. One girl very friendly but left waiting to be seated by a very surly waitress when we first arrived. No real choices for vegans, they adapted our food to be vegan but when the tofu dish came out it was full of chillies and inedible. With all the choices in Harrogate we wont be returning im afriad to say.

The food and service were excellent. However, the payment system was unsatisfactory. The bill stated that the service charge was optional and I expected the card payment machine to show me what amount I was paying for and to give me an option to decline the SC but it didn't. Instead it just asked me for my PIN. We had already prepared a cash tip which my daughter gave to the waiter before I took the receipt. I then realised we had just double tipped!! Left a bit of a sour taste in the mouth. Not sure we'll go again for that reason alone.

We were disappointed with our meal the main courses were small not particularly tasty and we didn’t feel they represented value for money. The automatic service charge of 10% wasn’t expected. Drinks were expensive also. Wouldn’t return
