I'm from out of town and was hoping to find a place near my hotel in San Mateo for a manicure. As a walk-in, I was quick to be taken in (I came right at 9am on a Wednesday, so they had just opened for the day). The service was professional, friendly, thorough, and an overall great experience. The manicurist was patient with me as I was trying to decide between two colors. The instruments were in sealed packs, so that told me they were regularly sterilized. The place is simple, relaxing, and not pretentious. The value for the service was good too. I went to this place based on the other reviews and I was not disappointed. I will certainly go back when I am back in town.

I love this very low key salon. Very clean and professional, I always leave feeling relaxed and ready to confront the world. I first visited the salon when my husband was a candidate for a job in the Bay Area, and two years later, I keep coming back to White Orchid. My teenage daughter get her hair done by John here, and she's always happy with her hair in his reliable and extremely skilled hands. Their work is highly consistent. In this economy, White Orchid Salon is a very good investment of your time and money.

Just discovered this Salon and have been going there ever since. The place is extremely clean & professional. The prices are reasonable. They also have wireless connection, so I bring my laptop while I crank out work on the computer. Power Point presos & pedicures -- my personal heaven :)

White orchid is once of the best in san mateo. I got a hair color by john spa manicure and pedicure by amy here and absolutely loved it. They were friendly, professional and extremely clean. The ambiance was very relaxing with wood floors, calm music and soft lighting. The manicure and pedicures themselves were very well done and my hair, feet and hands felt very soft and delicate afterward. The prices were very reasonable. This is my favorite place.

never knew that there was a spa in the san mateo, I recent found out about this location by a referral from a friend of mine. She told me that this spa gives the best facials and massages. I just went there today and tried out what my friend recommended. The facial was the best I ever had! After the facial, my skin was glowing, rehydrated, and smooth as silk. After facial, I decided to try the waxing there. I needed one and I didn't want to make another appointment for waxing at my usual place. I had to wax my eyebrow, lip, full leg, and Brazilian. Because of the facial, I had high expectation. To no surprise, it was great. It was fast, clean and painless. It usually take the place I go to about 45 min just for the Brazilian wax. But ,Vivian the person who did my facial and waxing, only took 20 mins. Overall, I had a great experience. If you want a very efficient, clean, and painless waxing, you have to see this gal. I love this place, very cozy. The environment is very Zen. No doubt about it, I WILL go back try the massage with my husband next week.

I have been going to White Orchid for over 2 years now since it opened, and I enjoy my experience every time. I have become friends with the owners who are a very nice couple and pride themselves in their work. They don't rush and are careful to make sure you are happy with every service. If I could give it a 4.5 on the ratings guide I would. My only little qualm is that it's a bit pricey, but it's worth it if you have the extra cash. You should definitely try White Orchid when you want to pamper yourself!

I walked into the salon at noon today (Sunday) after a horrific haircut, which was received elsewhere. Vivian, the sweetest stylist I've ever met, managed to squeeze me into her full schedule (which is very common for White Orchid). She proceeded to spend 2hrs in rescuing my hair outa disaster and I walk out more than amazed. Her accomodation, patience, and helpfulness was beyond me .. and the whole staff was warm and welcoming as well. I guess this reflects why so many pleasant clientele (female AND male) comfortably patronize this salon. I believe I've found my new salon and will be going back many times to come .. also, I'm planning to have my birthday night out with my girlfriends there too :) A truly enjoyable experience .. be sure to make an appt!

I've recently started getting facials regularly. I just tried White orchid day spa for the first time upon the recommendation of a co-worker. The staff was friendly and efficient. My facial was awesome. My skin has cleared up and I got some easy to use products for travel. I also got a hair cut and the stylist did a really good job. I'll definitely return. They are busy on weekend do make appointment befor come in.

I just got back from a couples massage with my girlfriend Nana. I had a therapist named Ginig, and she was fantastic! They stayed open late for us and were very warm and friendly. Our massages started late b/c the room was still occupied, but they kept us busy with chatting and magazines.
I had such a good massage that I booked another one for this weekend.
I would reccommend Ginig, but we did not partake in any of the other services.
Also, try to sushi restaurant right across the street, it was yummy.

Let me first say I am sceptical of all the other reviews, since they are all glowing and written by users who have only written one review. I had the White Orchid Manicure done here about a week ago. The ambiance is very nice and I was offered a drink while I had my massage. When I left, there was some sort of stickiness between my fingers but all else was OK. Manicure service was slightly above average but the main reception lady (perhaps the owner) was a bit overbearing and pushy.

The atmosphere is very zen and warm. The owner-Lynn came right over to introduce herself-what a professional and sweet lady. My mom and I tried the lemon drop pedicures-awesome! John did my pedicure and was very nice and did a great, thorough job. More importantly was my for my mom to enjoy it and she did. The spa chairs were nice and large and comfy. I liked the place so much, I booked my mom to have a facial right then and there. She came out glowing and couldn't say enough good things about Lynn and how incredible it was.
We will definitely be back!

I spent one of the most relaxing days of my life on my last visit to White Orchard Day Spa. I had been through a very stressful week and needed to unwind. So I booked a day to treat myself to a day in Paradise. I started with a hair coloring and cut. John the owner is so talented and can do a hair makover that makes your hair come to life.
I then had a facial and massage wow! Lynn gave me the best facial I have ever had! She has a passion for what does and it reflects in her work...
I also had a manicure and spa pedicure. I did not want to leave the salon and came came out a different person.
If you want to know what its like to be Royal go to White Orchid Spa that is the treatment you will receive

To anyone who's ever dreamed of having silky straight hair, you've got to try their Yuko System. I was given a thorough consultation by one of their stylist beforehand. Also he's price quote was more satisfying then the last place i've been. The staffs were very friendly throughout the whole long process. At the end it was all worth it because I walked out very satisfied with my new hair. The end results were everything I've been told it would be. I am definitely recommending my girlfriends to get their hair straight at this salon.

I've been getting many facials in the past and thought it was facial until I went to White Orchid. The esethician introduce me to Yonka facial and it was the best facial. Also the atmosphere is beautiful and clean. The staff is very friendly and nice. I highly recommend White Orchid. I'm definitely coming back to get more services.

I absolutely enjoyed my time while visiting White Orchid Day Spa & Salon. The atmosphere was warm and friendly, they treated me like i was family. The people are nothing more than wonderful. I experienced the facial and the hair, while also having a massage. I could honestly not say one negative thing about any of these services. The staff always made sure that I was taken care of and happy. That is something you do not find everywhere these days. May I please add, the location is great..parking is always easy to find. Also, whenever my parking meter has expired, the receptionist does not hesitate to help. I would definitly recommend White Orchid Day Spa And Salon to all those people out there who like to go to spas and salons! Enjoy! Adios!
