The OMC needs no reviews b/c its clientele has been so loyal for decades, and for good reason. The owners are like family. The food remains marvelous ... not so exotic that even not-so-daring palates can enjoy it ... but always full of variety and charm. Service and setting excellent. Food marries well with BYO wines, and there's no corkage fee. No place else in Balto where one can bring a variety of wines to enjoy with the great courses, and all for a reasonable price!

We're planning to revisit OMC this evening. I've only been there a very few times, but each time the dishes were surpassingly delicious, with what I might describe as a 'lightness' on the palate.
Seeing a 'one-star' review made me sorry for the unfortunate who didn't give the place a try when he was so close.
Anyone who tries this place will have already gotten far enough past any preconceptions to be ready for the treat in store for them!

I lived in Balto for 10 years, have been gone for eight, and my wife still misses Orchard Market . It is., as the other reviewer said, a very personal place. The waiter she mentioned, I would bet $10, is the co-owner Jason. (His mother in law used to be the chef and may still be).
It's the best value in Baltimore, period. Romantic from the smell of the spices up. Friendly, since the owners really do know the regulars and love to explain the menu (Jason was and I'm sure still is a passionate evangelist for a cuisine most people know little about). A ton of food for the price. Try the eggplant chicken and the chicken ishfahan, though you can try pretty much anything confidently.
Put it this way. I was sitting in OMC one night looking at a table where Donna Crivello, the owner of Donna's, and Sun restaurant critic Elizabeth Large were having dinner. And neither one of them was working. This is one of the places -- and the only one, pretty much, in Baltimore County -- where Baltimore people who really know food hang out on their own time and their own dime.

This little place is hidden away behind Gardiners on E.Joppa Road. The food is wonderful. Flavorful and inexpensive! Our waiter was really warm, friendly, chatty and that just added to the ambiance. This was our first time here and we did see quite a few regulars who the waiter knew by name. We loved everything we tried and the waiter very patiently explained the dishes to us. You should definitely try it out!
