We have enjoyed many meals at the Blue Orchid Thai Restaurant. It has been a favourite of ours for many years. the food is always fantastic. It also has a good and reasonably priced wine list.

We got sucked in by the apparent award this restaurant claims. It did not seem authentic...we were a family of four squashed onto a small table- so squashed that the menu hit our drink and it spilled all over us. A replacement drink never arrived. Food and service were average- had better Thai elsewhere. It was okay but not what... More

So picture this your take your wife out for a nice dinner and you have constant stream of people picking up take away , kids in pyjamas it's a circus . Dinning out is a total experience it about good food... More

That said, the Panang curry... More
