Don't bother. Service was poor. Portions were small. Lame presentation. 6 tiny tasteless shrimp rolls for 11.95 served by one latex glove on by a man who didn't want to be there.

Everything is always fresh and delicious. Love the pumpkin curry, pad thai, summer and spring rolls. Not fast food, but well worth the wait

We have dined here a few times with family and friends, and the food is consistently good. You can bring your own wine. Prices are reasonable. All the dishes we have tried have been very good. Loved their chicken satay.

We stopped here because we needed a quick meal. We ordered various noodle dishes because we thought they'd be quick. The place was about 1/3 full - just a few tables were seated ahead of us and most of those folks already had their meals when we sat down. It took a long time for our order to be taken... More

We love Orchid Thai for lunch, supper or take-out. Wonderful food, great service and reasonable prices. We bring family and friends whenever they visit. Mahalo Orchid Thai!

Panang currry, papaya salad, summer rolls, fried rice -- all very delicious. A bit pricey -- lunch special was $11.95, decent portions that were filling and included choice of summer or spring rolls and rice. Recommend!

The restaurant is in a business area on the northern edge of Kona (no outside seating). The menu offers a wide selection of Thai specialities. We liked the curries. Service is fast, friendly. The place is our favourite Asian place, when we are in Kona.

Quick service. Bill was $27 for two dishes!! Kind of expensive. Food was ok. Not sure I will be back here. I think you can get cheaper Thai food and possible better quality at a place in downtown Kona. At least they have lunch specials there.

Six of came to share an evening together. We were allowed to bring our own alcohol at no charge. The place was clean, the service excellent, and the prices fair. We had a great time and we're not rushed. Food was traditional Thai and goober

Nice touches with the decor, spring rolls to start your meal, fresh, tasty food every time. Lunch specials are a good option if you're in a hurry at luchtime.
