Visited for dinner in October 2014. Beautiful outdoor setting by Cullen Bay with only the occasional midge as the sun went down. Service was quick and attentive and food was nice. Highlight for me was the Thai Sago dessert - yummo. Prices for mains were generally in the high $20 range with some more expensive items. Ordered the seafood platter... More

Breakfast buffet at A$16 per head well worth it, lunch specials in particular curries and Pad Thai very tasty, and dinner with friends on the boardwalk relaxing and friendly

A group of us shared a beautiful meal beside the water at the Golden Orchid. We walked in off the street and they accommodated us despite having quite a large party arriving. The food was excellent and generous portions. We chose a number of mains to share together with plain steamed rice and special fried rice; with a couple of... More

Having visited the Golden Orchid many times for an evening meal, we decided to try the buffet breakfast. It offered plenty of choices from fruit juices, cereals to dumplings to the usual eggs, bacon, sausages. Sunday morning the restaurant was really busy and the waitresses took awhile to serve the teas and coffees. A suggestion would be to have the... More

We visited Cullen bay for the first time and wand wandered upon this nice little place on the dock. We were not very hungry so we tried the Chicken Satay, Thai Grilled Oysters and Money bags. They were all very good. The couple next to us ordered the whole Thai fried Chile fish which looked fantastic and described the same... More

We visited for dinner on a beautiful Darwin evening and had a great table right by the water. We found the service to be friendly but a bit amateur. Nothing was messed up, but it just didn't inspire confidence that they had the order right (they did get it right though). The food was the real highlight, and was really... More
