“My wife and I have date nights here all the time. The food is fantastic and you get a lot for your money. I have yet to find something that I don't like. If you go during happy hour you get 2 for 1 drinks also. If you are looking for a great place to eat and don't want to shell out a fortune then I would recommend this restaurant.”

— Trevor L. | Lindstrom, MN

“Truly one of the more underrated restaurants in the north metro 'burbs. The location itself flies under the radar given it resides at the end of a strip mall off Co Rd J, but the quality of food and service keeps people coming back. They often have drink specials - even on Fridays - with efficient and competent servers on staff. Truly can't name a single menu item that has disappointed after more than a dozen visits.”

— Brad R. | Minneapolis, MN

“The restaurant is always well kept and very clean. The staff is friendly and the bartender knows how to make drinks, good drinks, even muddled fresh mint and sugar for the mojitos.

One of the best parts about the Orchid is the food is consistently great!!!!! Everything I have had at the Orchid has been to die for. Try it for sure!”

— Bryan R. | St. Paul, MN

“Food is top notch. You won't be disappointed.”

— Mike S.

“Everything about this place is perfect. The food is great. The service is great. The drinks are great. The establishment is tidy and welcoming. Even the customers seem above average. Perhaps the best dining experience in the state of Minnesota.”

“Excellent food and the best service around! Great place to eat. We go there every chance we can.”

— Roger S. | Forest Lake, MN

“I have been to Orchid restaurant a handful of times now and have always had an excellent experience. They have a great menu selection and very friendly staff who appreciate your business. Most of my visits have been with a group of people so I've been able to sample quite a few of their dishes. My favorite though, is the their sesame chicken. It's the best I've had. It is a great sweet dish that isn't too sweet; it's just right.

My dish recommendations would be to start with the oyster wings (trust me they're awesome) or an order of egg-rolls. For the entreé get the Toasted Sesame Chicken (my favorite) or the Snappy Honey. Also try their fruit beignet if you feel like dessert. We've gone to Orchid for multiple birthday occasions and they offer a free (at least at the time we went) fruit beignet dish for the table, and it's a large dish.”

“My friend and I find reasons to travel over here just to have an excuse to eat at this restaurant. We plan our movie viewing just so we can justify having a meal.

Everything here is tasty and served quickly and the wait-staff is always the best. Their wonton soup is comfort in a cup with lots of variety of veggies. The crispy shrimps and egg rolls are awesome as well. They do a pretty mean PHO too.

My mouth waters thinking of their menu. And if the weather is good the patio is the best place to be.”

— Celia P. | Anoka, MN

“This is a great place. Always a good time and great food. And they have pho! What's not to like?”

— Tony B. | Hugo, MN

“Fantastic prawns! Everything on the menu is very good. Terrific waitresses - very friendly and efficient. Our group has tried everything on the menu and we love this place! Outdoor patio dining.”

— Jim H. | Saint Paul, MN

“Worth the drive for their Pho. Very good with a great selection of "add-ins", basil, limes, sprouts, etc. Also enjoy their egg rolls. We’ll keep coming back!”

— Karin M. | Cottage Grove, MN
