Good Lunch Spot!

Lunch for a leaving member of staff with a group of 10 and we were well looked after. A wide selection of spicy starters, curries and more complex mains were enjoyed by all and portion sides were pretty good too. It's a handy location for local office staff who must make up the bulk of the custom... read more

I loved the ambience and the friendly staff. The food itself was an explosion of flavours in my mouth. The tom yam soup and pad thai were especially delicious. My best friend has a thing for spicy food so they changed her order to increase the heat while still retaining their delicate balance of flavours. I saw quite a few... More

Thai Orchid in Glasgow was fab. Our first visit we were walk ins hoping to get a table, which luckily we did. The service was discreet while still attentive. The food was delicious. The portions were filling and the waiting staff offered suggestions as this was my first visit (not my husbands who had been with work colleagues) On our... More

I called at Thai Orchid recently for an early evening Meal. My choice of starter, Duck Salad was fine, a bit “chewy” but OK. My main meal, sweet and sour Chicken was fine too. All in, with Jasmine Rice a large meal. I thought that the Chardonnay was expensive at £7.50 for a 250CC Glass but it was very nice... More

The starters were much better than our mains. My chicken dish was bland and a wee bit overcooked leaving it quite dry even with the sauce. My partner chose the seafood tower which was nice but lacked depth of flavour. Bill for two with soft drinks £78. So many other restaurants in Glasgow, I won't be back here again.

Lunch at this friendly restaurant is worth the short walk along Argyll Street from the Central Station. The price is highly competitive (£10.50 for set lunch, massive choice) and the quality of the dishes first class. Service is extremely good, quick without harassment and very polite and friendly. Our group have been several times and not a disappointment or complaint.

The Thai Orchid was just a few doors down from our hotel. We had approached our limit of fish and chips and were looking for something different. We got there just as they opened and had the place to ourselves. The decor was lovely. There was music in the background and the staff were attentive. The choices were creative and... More

Our starters were far better than the main course and to be honest (being slightly mean) I didn't opt for my preferred main based upon a financial reasoning. In a group you don't like to be "that guy" picking the most expensive dish and then sharing the bill, also at nearly twenty quid for the seafood tower which sounded lovely... More

Great Location, staff are very friendly and food hot/tasty. Best to go in a group sharing dishes as there are simply too many good ones to chose from and I like variety rather than a whole dish to myself. Authentic Thai flavors and fortunately they have not gone down the route of Europeanizing the tastes.
