Convinced the family to drive all the way to this restaurant after watching a short TV feature about a Melbourne chef cooking Thai food and mentioning his restaurant in Warrandyte (northeast of Melbourne) and his cookbook. Rang on a Friday to make a booking and was given an early evening time slot. A bit of a dangerous trek in the... More

This is as authentic as it gets. Both the food and service is top rate. If you enjoy good Thai food you will love it here. Enjoy a leisurely walk along the Yarra river and then settle in to a relaxing meal with family or friends.

Ate here on a saturday night and apart from it being a little pricey IMO for thai food, it was beautiful. Authentic flavours, service great, second visit and it didnt disappoint. We will be back.

Vanilla orchid is an amazingly successful business and the secret is simply that the food is great. Just as many people seem to get takeaway as eat-in, myself included. I can recommend just about everthing - the satay skewers entree, the "golden prawns" entree, the pad thai, the red duck curry, the green chicken curry, excellent rice, the beef strips... More

This is a great restaurant in a great location, on the main street of Warrandyte, looking over the road to the wood fired bakery, trees and river beyond. The night we went was a bit cool so we sat inside, but on a fine day it would be lovely to take advantage of the outdoor tables overseeing this view. Being... More

There were 14 people in our group and everyone loved the food. The menu was varied and covered all food options. The descriptions on the menu were very helpful. The staff were friendly and efficient. We will definitely go back even though it's quite a long way from where we live. Well worth the 30 minute trip on East Link!... More

We've been to Thailand several times and eaten at quite a few Thai restaurants in Melbourne but the Massaman Curry we had for lunch at Vanilla Orchid today was the best we have ever eaten. It was absolutely delicious. We were there in a group of 14 and everyone LOVED the food they ate. It's a bit dearer than some... More

Firstly let me say that I don't usually like Thai food and avoid it at all costs. Unfortunately however, my family and friends love Thai, so I am often out voted... Vanilla Orchid is one of our local restaurants so I have eaten here many times, and fortunately for me, I actually don't mind it at all. If I had... More
