No surprise this place is so highly rated. Food was fantastic, we liked everything on the menu. Mixed kebobs combined amazingly with the basmati rice. Mango shrimp was also delightful. They had live music which was a little loud, but not disturbingly. Service is solid, and ambience gives the place a royal feeling. Not too pricey either.

Delicious food. Great service. Quiet atmosphere. I haven't been here in quite some time (10 years). Very happy that I returned!

I was at the Orchard Market &Cafe on a Friday night. The food and service was excellent. Jason and Xenia created a friendly atmosphere . Moreover, I was deeply inspired by the cello/violin duo performing virtuosic music manifesting world class.

Hidden behind a bunch of shops and restaurants in a strip, Orchard offers a great getaway to Persian cuisine north of Baltimore. The place is smallish, but they have great decor with lots of Persian paintings. The menu selection is impressive with an offering of duck and a thick sweet gravy, the national dish of Iran. I have not seen that dish anywhere. Most of the clientele appeared to know the hidden charm of the place as well as the owner. I was told that there is music on Wednesdays and Fridays as well. Price of dishes is little bit on the high side, about $16-20. Orchard caters to the discerning connoisseurs of Persian cuisine, and deserves a five star.

The Orchard Market gets it right each and every time. We were warmly greeted by Kseniya. We came for an early dinner at 5:30 PM, so the restaurant was very quiet and peaceful – it was full when we left. We visited for a while with Jason, the owner, catching up with what is new and exciting at the restaurant. The first notable change is the lovely new tablecloths from Iran – they are gorgeous. Also, we were presented with new menus. The food is still the best. We enjoyed the Soltani - (a full skewer of butterfly-cut beef tenderloin and a skewer of finely ground beef grilled with tomato & onion, seasoned with sumac) – the Chicken Abadan – (mildly seasoned breast of chicken sautéed with jumbo shrimp & scallops, onions & farm tomatoes in a light curry sauce) – and the Plum Lamb – (sun dried plums and butternut squash in a sweet tomato stew with braised chunks of lamb leg). We each thoroughly enjoyed our dinners. BYOB with no corkage fee is always a plus for us. Treat yourself and go have dinner at the Orchard Market and Café – you will be glad that you did.
