Holy Cow! Loved, loved, loved this place! While shopping in the Gaslight District(another fabulous experience), we came upon this restaurant. Atmosphere was very relaxing and staff was kind and courteous. Husband had the pad Thai and I had the Tom Kha soup and Pineapple curry. Whoa! That stuff was so good that I was NOT leaving until every drop was... More

When we want good Thai for the family we order takeout here. Never a bad meal and always ready when they say.

My husband and I decided to have dinner at Orchid Thai after walking around in the whole Downtown. Service was good, and decor and atmosphere were great! It does look like a fine dining restaurant when you peek into the window from outside. The price of the food is reasonable but still a bit high in my opinion because of... More

Clean restaurant and friendly service. But the food is far from authentic Thai. The Tom Yum soup is bland with ONE shrimp. Fried rice is super salty. The stir fry tasted like your average take-out Chinese Food. Decent if you're craving thai / Asian food but not authentic experience.

Have been there twice. Tom Ka Gai soup doesn't seem to have much coconut milk in it, although the flavor is decent. Tried the Panang Curry and Massaman curry...both could have used more sauce and vegetables. Not enough curry flavor in my opinion. Service was efficient. Servers really seemed like they were in a hurry, like too few of them... More

Thai Orchid is a nice, clean restaurant in Petoskey. Friendly atmosphere and excellent cousine. I had curry fish... amazing combination of lemon grass and a well balanced curry. I strongly recommend a visit.

Fabulous Thai food! Similar to others I've lived in several big cities and this easily compares! Started with the fresh rolls which were great and then my husband and I each had seafood dishes. Both prepared superbly. I had the glass noodles with shrimp, squid and scallops -- fabulously flavorful and seafood cooked perfectly! Full bar menu and assortment of... More

Love this place. I live in metro Detroit and this place would be my go to Thai place if it was in My area. It is my favorite restaurant in Petosky. Also they have wine and beer which is unusual for a Thai restaurant. I get the summer rolls with tofu always yummy. Great service too but there is often... More

On the recommendation of a couple of shop owners nearby, we gave this place a shot. The soups are very good (large serving), and the entrees taste as good as those in a large well known city. A good value for the price paid. If we lived here this would be on our regular list.
