Sunday Buffet Very Good!

Clean restaurant with a Thai ambience - Carved wooden decor & a garden conservatory with seating. Welcoming staff, good service. Buffet; Fresh, constantly replenished, tasty fragrant food with a wonderful selection. £32.50 for buffet & drinks for 2 people. We enjoyed it, thank you :)

We love Thai food and this restaurant did not disappoint. Service was excellent and we sat in the conservatory which was lovely.

We had a problem my wife loves Chinese food and I prefer Indian, so we went for what we hoped would be a half way house but is was neither. We had a set menu which we thought would give good variety. The mixed started were good and the extra course of duck fine but there it ended. Frankly all... More

Visited here as we'd heard good things, so we picked the Thai Orchid for a date night. We booked for 8pm on a Friday and arrived a little early, around 7.30. It was pretty empty which we were surprised about for a Friday night. We were there for a good hour and not that many more people came in. It... More

My partner and I had a quick meal here late the other night - it was about 9pm but they were happy to accept us which was nice. The food was decent - I had the stir fried veg. The Thai beef salad was a little spicy to my liking! Staff very friendly and pretty well priced.

I love the food and often get takeaway so We decided to eat in for a change. Nice decor, lots of wood carvings. The service was good although very quick to refill our drinks and up the price of the bill. One server spoke so quietly it was hard to make out what they said so you tended to nod... More

Just returned from a lovely meal at the Thai orchard in Oxford. The decor in the conservatory was sensational, ornate wooden carvings and lots of potted plants hanging from the roof. The food was fantastic! Really tasty. Try the yellow chicken curry with coconut! It was beautiful. The only potential problem here was a tiny bit of bone/grizzle in a... More

The carvings, tables, and chairs look wonderful. Unfortunately, I was expecting better, more traditional food. Although the sauce was good, the prawns were small, the other vegetables in the dish were not good and what are peas doing in a Thai dish? You are a chain of restaurants, so why aren't you sourcing and using Thai vegetables? This is just... More
