👍👍 Orchid is just fantastic! Anyone in Lilongwe should have an amazing meal here. A great atmosphere and flavors that jump off the plate. If you have a group, the large sampler is a must. For the main meal, you will love the fish dish on rice which had the most flavor. We did family style and ate a bit...

Tour operator
😠 The food is not terrible, but the owners are quite haughty/rude. I also felt looked at badly if I came to this cafe with anyone black (the clientele is about 90% white...). If you live in area 3 you might sadly not have a lot of options to avoid L&L - but if not, there are better alternatives...
