We discovered this restaurant recently and had a nice dinner in its inner courtyard in the back. The food was good, but the main waitress was really grumpy and it was quite difficult to get her attention. She had two younger colleagues who were much more friendly and smiling, but the mood of the "chef" waitress really felt a bit... More

Was it the fact that there were 20 of us at the table that fazed the waitresses? They were brusque verging on the rude and if this didn't deter from the excellent quality of the food, it somewhat spoiled our experience. Flavours were very good and portions more than adequate so I would definitely go back to l'Orchidee Blanche and... More

L'Orchidée Blanche is a lovely restaurant offering a very varied menu and an attractive setting (the garden in the summer, more of a green yard really, is absolutely lovely.) There is a rich offering of first courses, including some classic Chinese dishes, many not often seen in Thai restaurants in Europe or even in the US. The main courses are... More

This place is nice for the service and the deco. Indeed, there is no musak and no automatic fountain, no fake plants and no menu with bad translations. However the food is not that impressive and not that different fro any other average Asian food restaurant. You will still find this long list of ready-to-made dishes with suspicious sauce.

This is a small, beautifully (modern) decorated Thai restaurant - none of the usual kitsch - spread over 2 floors of a townhouse in the Cimitiere d'Ixelles student area. The service is attentive, the food is served in attractive dishes on warmers and is very tasty. We also really enjoyed the desserts, especially the banana baked with sago in coconut... More

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Brussels, and to top things, one of the rare ones open on Sundays. It's not cheap, but the food is very well presented and a sure bet every time. Very pleasant outdoor when Belgian weather allows.
