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 :)

I have a real weakness for Phad Thai and have ordered it in lots of places including several places in Thailand itself. I am yet to find a better Phad Thai than here in my own home town of Oxford at the Thai Orchid. I thoroughly recommend you try it when you visit here. All the other food on the... More

Little to be desired. Walked in and the guy said 'what do you want?' And the couldn't understand a word I was saying. Very very disappointed!

The ambience is great, food is average and the service is the worst.. and I have been to many restaurants and this by far has been the most disappointing. The woman gives a very cold smile as you enter and the man - who hardly can communicate in english - and doesn't have the slightest respectful apt body language or... More

Don't think they understand the concept of customer service! Stick a smile for a start. Very abrupt!

This place looks awesome. I've been three times and had mediocre food every time - it's really not that great. Not disgusting or anything, but just not the best. I came back the second and third time to show people the decor. God, I need to get a life.

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
