I have eaten at the Siam Orchid a number of times although the last time I ate there I found it short of its usual standard. Saying that, this time I have to admit to thoroughly enjoying the meal.

I went there on Saturday night with my son, my friend and his nephew. The Nephew was quite picky and wanted a Chinese Chicken Fried Rice which they managed to supply without an issue, my son had the same but my friend and I were more adventurous. I had the Thai Green Curry for the main dish and I think... More

You have to search for this place, it's not obvious from the outside and is easily lost amongst its neighbours. The food was fabulous - definitely the tastiest Thai green curry I've ever had. I recommend the Combo to share between 2 - a great starter! Both the red and green curries were a great success, accommanied with perfectly cooked... More

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.

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. We had a combo special mixed starter which had good flavours, nice dipping sauces and pretty much everything you would expect.... More

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
