The Orchid – review

Asian cuisine with A twist – The Orchid is one of my favourite restaurants in Cambridge. This exciting fusion restaurant opened their doors last year and they serve one of the finest authentic Asian fusion food in Cambridge. It’s not only one of my favourites, but of many of my local guests on my tours too. If you like Asian food, you’ll love The Orchid!

The interior design is stylish and elegant. It’s the perfect setting to enjoy their great quality freshly prepared food. Their chefs create delicious meals with a twist; through their style of cooking which can best be described as fusion cuisine, they bring together quality ingredients and spices to offer you a new dining experience that reflects the Asian cuisine. Don’t forget to ask for their premium Chinese teas. They are unique!

The Orchid Cambridge various food

I have been very fortunate having travel to the Far East many times and I am a big fan of the modern Asian cuisine. It’s not only the food, which I’m very fond of. I love sharing food and nibble my way through a meal. So cuisines, which offer this are high on my list and if it’s not sharing, then tasting menu’s is my type of food. The Orchid offers both. Don’t expect the traditional Chinese food here, but I would call it a fine dining experience with a lot of fun. The last bit comes in after the meal. Although I am not a teenager anymore, I do like a good party. Their stunning bespoke KTV & Function Room ( Karaoke) on the first floor will give you an unforgettable experience. Even if you decide not to take part in or wish to have a Karaoke even if it is just for a drink and background music after your dinner. If you dine with them and finish before 10 pm, then the KTV room is complimentary with your meal.

I have eaten here many times either with the family, my friends on my hen party and with other groups. It is always a meal I look forward too. The only thing I haven’t tried yet is their Hotpot meals. It isn’t just the food and the Hot Pot meal, which stand out, but the room with the induction tables too. The Hot Pot meal is on my bucket list for the next month!

The Orchid Cambridge main courses

We have included The Orchid in tours, a hen party and corporate function too. For these events, we create menu’s exclusively for our clients. We are looking to expand even more, especially as it’s only a stone throw away from The Free Press. 

Is The Orchid on your food map already? If not, then I hope I have given you enough reasons to head down here soon.
