I have nothing but good things to say about the Red Orchid. The food is really good, the service is professional and for the most part efficient, and the atmosphere is much better than you will find in most Chinese places.
Other reviewers have complained about unfriendly patrons, or Tony, (the owner), not tolerating misbehaving children. (Standing on bar stools? Really? You consider this acceptable behavior?) Not legitimate complaints. The truth is that there are a lot of regulars, but everybody is treated well. I've been going there for years, and while service can (on occasion) be slow, it's not directed at the newcomers.
Don't let the naysayers naysay you out of giving this place a shot. There's a reason the Red Orchid is packed with regulars.
