this was pretty yummy thai food. we ordered a few different dishes (green curry, drunken noodles, penang duck, and thai basil). everything except the duck was quite delicious. the duck was over-fried and dry.

Don't be fooled by small door-front. This is Thai food as it SHOULD, be. Long time locals favorite. BYOB, take out, Pad-thai noodles, coconut based Hot and Sour soup, family's original Thai recipes.

My husband and I ordered lots of entrees and a few mains. Not too cheap and tailored to the American Palate in our opinion. Best part of the meal was the entertaining people at the next table!

We have been to this little gem in the past but the food recently has become even better. The saffron crab cakes are my favorite. Tulip dumplings are light and tender. Shrimp dishes are generous with jumbo shrimp. Service is always excellent at this byo. Most dishes pair well with a good dry rose.

We stopped in on a Saturday as they were opening for dinner. The Tulip Dumplings ($7.95) contained shrimp and crabmeat and were a very nice appetizer. My wife enjoyed the Massaman Curry ($13.95, possibly more depending on choice of meat/seafood), letting her enjoy a good Thai curry without being too spicy. She commented that the potatoes in it were perfectly... More

My wife and I had dinner at Thai Orchid last week. It was essentially our first visit, since our previous visit was many years ago and under different ownership. All of the dishes were well prepared and nicely presented. We particularly enjoyed the pad see ew and massaman curry. The mango and sticky rice for dessert was exceptional. Service was... More

On a work trip and craved Thai. Just surfed around and needed a place nearby. I saw Thai Orchid and gave it a try and WOW! I had the steak Salad, I think they called it a Spicy Tiger. In a word it was AWESOME. Ok, so that was the best that I had eaten anywhere since Thailand. I took... More

Went for lunch with a friend from work. We both ended up having the pad thai. Service was quick, food was good, portion was decent not enormous, and the price was excellent, two people having lunch for less than $20.00 plus tip. Not sure if they have any lunch specials, did not see it on the menu, but they may... More

I was a little apprehensive about eating Thai from a "strip mall" setting, but was pleasantly surprised. I ordered the chicken green curry and it was absolutely delicious. The chicken was tender, the vegetables were fresh, and the curry had the right balance of sweet and spice.

Went here for lunch with some family and old friends, first time we've been back here in several years. The food is still very good, but our server (who might also be the owner-manager) was the most dour, unfriendly person imaginable. Maybe she was having a bad day, or maybe this is how she always is, but she is certainly... More
