Beautiful Surroundings and Dishes, Lovely food, Great Service

I went to the restaurant with a group of about 16 people. It was off season. I really loved the atmosphere of this place, with the beautiful wood carvings on the walls and table tops. The dishes that the food was served in also were lovely. I think the food was good and I enjoyed it. I cannot... read more

We got the name of this restaurant from a local and we were so disappointed. While beautiful to look at the food was really just average. We had the wrapped prawn appetizer and they were almost like eating prawn jerky. The soup was good. I had Pad Thai and the bean curd was so tough it was like cardboard and... More

A solid 9/10 extra cheeky from the get go. Good quality food good quality drink and good quality banter. soothing and calming music in the background not to overwhelming that it overpowers the Conversation flow. A tad expensive for what it is but the food was on point can't complain and it did indeed come with that side order of... More

I'll start by saying that we've eaten here previously, and it was good. However, things have taken a downwards turn lately. We ordered chicken satay and two portions of Phad Thai. After a lengthy bike ride home, we opened the food to find a chicken satay with no satay sauce, and Phad Thai dishes with no peanuts or lemon. They... More

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!
