My wife and I visited Thai Orchid for dinner one weekday evening. The food was excellent, the service quick and friendly, the price reasonable. We had vegetarian curry puffs followed by two mains. All items were delicious. I would happily recommend this place to anyone.

My wife and I took our three young ladies for dinner here and had nothing but an outstanding, super-friendly dining experience. Despite being busy at the time, staff were very attentive and friendly. Best of all were the meals. Our green curry was the best we've had since we were in Thailand 10 years ago (sooooo good), the portion sizes... More
