Best Chinese Restaurant in Garden City. Old tired location but good food. They are due for a major renovation but the food never disappoints.

The food, service and ambiance can't be beat. Prices are good as well. Try it you'll like it...you'll be back often I'm sure.

The almost complete absence of negative reviews should tell you all you need to know. This is a first class Chinese restaurant. If anyone wants to write negatively about Orchid in Garden City they should first try to determine what was wrong with themselves on the evening they visited. Firstly, the food is cooked and presented to perfection and the... More

Delicious Chinese food in an upscale, elaborately decorated setting. Recommend Peking duck, pan fried noodles, house special seafood soup, zombie, a specialty drink. Good, attentive service.

Was on Long island visiting for a long weekend and came here with friends. Had looked it up before coming so came here on previous reviews and was not disappointed. All in our party of 4 were very pleased with the service and food ordered. The dining room reminded me of an elegant dining room on a ship as the... More

I've lived in area for 13 years, but as a loyal customer- whenever I wanted old school Americanized Chinese food, I would go to my place in queens. After 50+ years in business, they closed their doors. I've been continuously disappointed with takeout options available in the area and needed something close, and good. Welcome Orchard! I went for takeout... More

Have been here a few times in the past few months while visiting. Terrible entrance and a pain to get down the stairs. After that...all good. Soups are very good, simple and good. Shrimp fine many ways. I go with Lake Tung Ting Shrimp usually, but Grand Marnier Shrimp is also superb. Very good service. Not cheap for Chinese food... More

It has been many years since I have enjoyed and old style, white table cloth and ceramic tea pot type restaurant. This is that place. The food and service are both impressive. Our water glasses and tea pots were refilled almost before they were emptied. Custom dishes were no problem. And the pistachio ice cream recommended by our waiter had... More
