Restaurant of the week – The Orchid Bistro

You should go to The Orchid Bistro because :

1. It’ll get you crowned kids of the year, especially if you take your parents there. 🙂

2. This place is literally a hidden gem, and if you don’t know exactly where to look, or are rushing you’ll miss it.

3. Since it’s hidden, you know you’re not going to be dining with a crowd.

4. It’s a small charming restaurant that comes with a garden which can also be used for outdoor dining.

5. I loved how even though the main restaurant is small, its not choked up. They utilized their space wisely.

6. They also claim not to own a microwave, so everything is fresh!

7. Their menu is simple, and I guarantee there’s something for everyone.

8. They have a Sunday buffet for brunch.

9. Their meals are yummy, well ours was. My dad and I enjoyed it and I think they deserve 8/10.

10. The customer service is fantastic. They get a 7/10

The food was fantastic as stated earlier, and even though it’s a small place, we (including other diners), were able to have conversations without feeling like the other group was being noisy/listening in.

The only downside was that our order took a little while to come, and I also wasn’t too excited that I couldn’t pay by my card. Thankfully there are ATMs across the road, so you can quickly withdraw money.

*they accept card payments

They are open 7 days a week, Sun – Thurs 7am-9pm, Friday 7am-11pm & Saturday 7am- 10pm. They also offer take out and catering services, and parking is available in the complex.
