Great cafe! Good service. Pleasant atmosphere.
Been a regular since they opened as I lived round the corner from the West Lakeview location. Really authentic Turkish with the standard Middle Eastern dishes as well. What stands out is the Doner Kabob. There are NO doner Kabob stands in Chicago. You find them every other block in London so I was in heaven when the owner told me they make them. The ambience is nice. Seating is comfortable and you're surrounded by comfortable , colorful Turkish pillows. The Alfresco dining is perfect for summer. The food is very good and their lamb is awesome. So happy they opened a Park Ridge location.
Everything was delicious! Excellent food in a warm and intimate atmosphere.
The lunch menu prices are great! The food itself was flavorful and crazy big. I can't believe the platters they served were just lunch portions. I had the beef with rice, while my husband had a sandwich. The sandwich was as long as his torso, filled with meat. We also had the eggplant cold appetizer, full of flavor as well. All in all, if you want a big Turkish lunch at a decent price, this place would fulfill your needs. No frills, no fuss, good service.
The falafel and shrimp sauté were amazing.
Turkish food at this location - super good. this place does it for me. the service here is better than most. the place has a great feel to it.
This was my first time having Turkish food and I loved it! We ordered the Zucchini pancakes for the appetizer. They were super tasty, but very filling. This could be split amongst four to six people and be perfect, but for two it's a little too much. For the entree, I got the Veggie Manti and my boyfriend got the Baked Eggplant. Both were full of flavor and absolutely delicious. The server recommended I get a mix of the tomato sauce and the spicy butter sauce for the Manti and I'm glad I took the recommendation. It was perfect! little dumplings drenched in an amazing mix of flavors. We both ended up taking home leftovers. Next time we go here, we'll be sure to take advantage of the BYOB option and maybe hang out a little longer to fully enjoy the cozy atmosphere and plentiful food.
Always thought of this place as a great dinner place, ALSO a great spot for lunch!!
The food is just amazing! Service also really good. Atmosphere is very authentic. If you are not from this part of the world it may seem a little dark, but I can eat that wonderful food with the lights off, and still be happy!
After spending some time in Turkey I have been to many Turkish restaurants in the US and of those I have been to this one by far has the most authentic Turkish food.
So cute cup coffe and tea i like this place maybe i will come back next time 😋
Absolutely charming and cozy. The food was cooked perfectly; the flavors were gorgeous and comforting. Our server was attentive, knowledgeable, and super nice! I can't wait to stop in again. There were so many vegetarian options!!
We're never disappointed with Orchid. Everything on the menu is fresh and delicious and the service is prompt and polite. We love coming and taking guests! Always worthwhile.
Our food was very good! It was a bit pricey, our total after tip was $32 for two people sharing a plate. But the atmosphere and pace of service was pleasant and relaxing.
Great service and amazing soup!
Healthy food reasonably priced
seafood is absolutely amazing
Good food, the decor could use an update
Delicious food and great service!
Great lunch place. BYOB and lunch specials are fine. Haven't had anything bad there. Delicious strong tea offered. Mediterranean decorations inside with cushions and pillows on comfy seating. Covered outside seating also available. Service staff acceptable. Open kitchen. Decent shared parking lot. Summer downside, A/C wasnt working during July and August. Bathroom B-.
