Food excellent in rustic location

Really friendly place offering a basic menu but with all food cooked perfectly. A real taste of Thailand. Owner offered a really personal service, listening to our requirements and served us food nice and quickly. Felt that food was fresh and well cooked and one of the best Thai meals we've had.

It was open New Years day when our hotel restaurant wasn't we booked a table a few days before and very helpful. Food was delicious and freshly cooked in view of diners which is a good sign. Popular with locals and visitors and very close to our Royal Harbour Hotel. A good choice.

I ate for the first time at Thai Orchid this summer and it will be my last. I am normally not that fussy with Thai food, but this was probably the worst Thai I have ever eaten. Presentation was awful, food was way below average and prices weren't cheap either. The atmosphere of the restaurant didn't even feel like we... More

I reckon this is by far, the best thai I have ever eaten! Fresh and authentic home cooking. The guy who owns it was serving us... More

The only negative I have is the menus could do with a wipe over with a clean cloth. Other than that, BEST THAI... More

We visited the Thai Orchard as a group of nine. We were offered the banquet menu, which is a selection of courses from the standard menu. The food was exceptional as was the service. The owner explained what each course consisted of and with 1 vegetarian in the party made sure the she was catered for in every course. Most... More
