Very nice repeated experience for thai food. They also have a japanese sushi area, but I only tasted the thai food, which was always excellent. The service is very good and the price is reasonnable.

Thai Orchidee is a very nice asian restaurant in the Flon center, it's quite big so you might find place even in the super-booked saturday nights in Lausanne. The food is very good, I usually have tried the thai dishes, but they also provide a nice offer of sushis (the big boat is somethig to try with friends). Service is... More

We just had dinner here last night and it was delicious. We were looking for a Thai restaurant in Lausanne and it was pretty tough to read some good reviews but for some reasons, my friends and I decided to try the Thai Orchidee and we are glad we did. The decoration of the restaurant is pretty nice and the... More

Thai Orchidee is centrally located in Lausanne Flon behind the cinema. I would say that its location is a bit tricky - took me some time to notice. I find that the Thai food is very good and contrary to some comments I believe the owner is indeed Thai. The decor is typically thai as well, the only thing I... More

The Thai Orchidee restaurant has been for a long time, my favorite Asian restaurant in Lausanne. Since, they changed the management, the menu has shrunk x 3 and price were multiplied x3. For ex. 3 soups, 2 beef basil sauce, sushi and fried rice, 3 soft drinks, total CHF 225.--!!! They sell you the beef, basil sauce CHF 34.-, no... More

Food quality is not the best, that is for sure. The service is terrible. And to finish with I didn't like what I ate. There are better oriental restaurants in Lausanne to waste your time and money here.

Price is less then chinese restaurants around but on... More

Ok, right next to the Pathé Flon cinema and near various clubs. That's the strong point. We waited quite a while after being seated before someone came with menus......Then, what seemed like no time at all, our drinks arrived followed about 300 seconds later by our meal. It made us nervous that our meals came within 5 minutes of having... More

The reason I wrote the title is because the foods in the restaurant are kinda pricey. A la carte menu from 28 - 38 CHF. You can have a portion of fried rice for 18 CHF though. The sushi set menu for 2/3 persons costs for about 75 CHF. The taste is average, but if you want to taste Thai/... More
