Feeling a million dollars with a brand new hair style, I wanted to dine somewhere special while I was in Bendigo and I was not disappointed by the Malayan Orchid in View Street. The food was just as delicate and beautiful as a rare tropical orchid. It is easy to find at the top end of View Street, opposite the... More

I ordered take away whilst staying near by. I ordered the short soup and the Malay Nasi Goreng. Very very nice and very very fresh. Staff were also excellent and very friendly.

Visited this restaurant twice in the past week. On both occasions the food was faultless. The restaurant always has a nice warm feel and the service is always very attentive. Having lived in Bendigo for a couple of years now, this restaurant makes my top three.

I went here as part of a large group, with a local recommending it. I couldn't have been happier -- the food was sensational. We ordered a mix of meat, seafood and vegetarian dishes and every single one of us loved it.

We had the banquet menu (preordered/scheduled) for $65 pp. It was a feeding frenzy and very well prepared. We had lobster, prawns, duck, thai curry, etc. etc. Presentation was lovely and the food explanations were great. The staff was friendly but perhaps a bit unaware of basics like water, which we had to ask for several times. Other than that... More
