Warm, cosy, freindly atmosphere with tasty food.

My wife and I went here on a Saturday night for a quiet meal. We had no problems booking a table for 8 on the day and, when we arrived, there were lots of choices of where to sit.

The place needs a refurb as it's stuck in the early nineties, but the food and service are both outstanding. Great price too. Highly recommended.

The Siam Orchid is always worth a visit. The food is great and although the interior is not, the ambience is nice enough. It helps allowing for enough time when going there, as the little staff that works can be easily overwhelmed by the guests on a weekend night. This, for us at least, led to rather long waits between... More

The best Thai food outside of Thailand. The Red curry and Massaman curry were absolutely amazing. We also had the sharer platter for starter. Great selection and extremely tasty.

We'd not been to the Siam Orchid for years and, after being in there for ten minutes, we were wondering if we'd made the right choice. They only had two of the wines on the list (neither of them great) and we were seated next to a chipboard window! I'm glad to report though , by the time we left,... More

Called up to check if we could use our Hi-Life card and was told no problem, advised they close at half two and then she hung up. No 'good bye', 'can I help you with directions' etc. Menu is really long, which is a bit intimidating if you don't know exactly what you want. We finally decided on mains and... More

This was our first visit in a party of five on a Saturday night. We were looking forward to some tasty dishes based on the website. Unfortunately we left feeling like we wouldn't return. Here's why: - two out of three starters didn't arrive, then we were told we didn't order them. These starters then appearered with our main courses,... More

we fancied Thai while on a weekend away and was a little put off by the outside as it shares an entrance to a karaoke bar upstairs with bouncers on the door. However the entrance is just off to the right inside and it was a little offputting by roudy youngsters on their way to the karaoke passing by the... More

The restaurant was quiet but we did arrive at 18:45 so it may get busier later on. Food was delicious and portion sizes were great. Many reviews comment about the decor but its clean, comfortable and does seem to have been updated recently. Staff were friendly and efficient. Overall I would say it was good value for money and highly... More

went here on a sunday night and we were the only 2 people in the place. To say the decor is tired is an understatement. The lady serving, dont know if she was the owner or not , was more interested in talking to a friend who came in for a chat than she was in tending to us. All... More
