Melinda Veliosa- 06/29/07 I recently dined at The Orchid Restaurant in Metuchen , NJ and I must say I was pleasantly surprised! My husband and I stopped in to get a quick sandwich and decided to sit and try it out after seeing the selection on their menu. We had the Moroccan cigars for appetizer and I had a lamb kabob special and my husband a Ribeye steak - all on recommendation of our very helpful waitress. It was fantastic!!
