Visited with family for dinner after a friend's recommendation and being unable to get into our local Chinese restaurant. There was a minor disappointment due to a problem with the restaurant's drinks license but the manager gave us a round on the house and the food and service more than made up for it. I will definitely be returning at... 更多
Nice clean looking restaurant. Hubby decided to have seafood soup to start, I passed on this course (glad I did) as hubby was violently ill during our journey home which we can only put down to the soup. We both had crispy duck with pancakes (very nice) then king prawns one with black bean sauce the other with garlic and... 更多

When we arrived we were greeted by friendly staff and offered if we would like to be seated in the VIP room, this room was perfect for my party of 12 people. Food was lovely served by professional, friendly staff but the star of the night was... 更多
First visit - Staff are friendly and accommodating. Had the Orchid banquet C, everything was delicious and loved the presentation. Only slight negative was the wait between courses. Will definitely return!
Celebrating an anniversary we came through Newcastle and gave this restaurant a try and pleased we did. The early evening banquet meal was great value with each dish have lots of flavour and plenty on offer, the service was brilliant and drinks were typical of restaurant prices. Will definitely venture here again.
The place is beautiful and the staff are friendly. The food itself I was disappointed with, the spring rolls had no flavour, the seaweed was very salty and my main dish lacked flavour. It was worth going the once, but there are so much other places in Newcastle that are so much better.
Really one of the best. Nice ambience with large, well-separated tables, attentive but unobtrusive service, delicious food - not surprised they were full on a Wednesday evening. No criticisms at all.
Really amazing service and food from the orchid. The staff were extremely attentive and made the experience excellent. We had the platter starter which was very nice and our main courses were also excellent. We would definitely visit again and recommend it to anybody
Tried the early bird banquet menu. This was great value with a good range of choices and very friendly and efficient service. The restaurant is set in a converted warehouse and the setting is really warm and has a touch of class. Will have to call again for a proper browse through the extensive menu.
I am not a big fan of Chinese food but I have been converted by the Orchid. My girlfriend and her family love Chinese food. Every special occasion is at some swanky Chinese in Newcastle or Ponteland and I never really enjoy it. My normal issue is I find most Chinese restaurants use cheap chewy meats. Not the Orchid the... 更多
My boyfriend and I popped in last week for dinner after a crazy day and what a good decision! From the moment we walked in we were welcomed and sat down and the waiter checked we were happy with the table which is always a plus for me :-) we were promptly asked for drinks order and the young Geordie... 更多

The service was great with the waiting staff nver far away and fantastic food which... 更多
