We have eaten dinner here twice during our 10 day holiday & I have to say we have loved it. The atmosphere in this nice little restaurant is great & the service is good too. I would thoroughly recommend the blue orchid prawns & the special massuman beef, AMAZING! We will be back next year for sure.

We thought we were onto a winner when we walked in - it was quite busy and obviously has a loyal following. Having eaten at another Thai restaurant the night before, we were disappointed that our meal at the Blue Orchid was not as nice. The entrees were ok, but the mains were a disappointment. My chicken cashew tasted like... More

Had the chicken Pad Thai, delicious, serving just larger than normal entree size. Worth the price which was quite modest. Greeted upon arrival. shown to table and water supplied immediately. Menus delivered in a timely manner and order taken at appropriate time.

Curries are packed with flavour but most are not too spicy to taste the food. The exception is the slow cooked Beef Rendang which is to die for (and if you have an intolerance for spicy food, you might!) The green chicken curry is also a stand out and we are partial to the chilli basil stir fry. Service can... More

The Blue Orchid Thai Restaurant consistently provides excellent food at very reasonable prices. We especially like the banquet meals which always leave us feeling very full.

The service from the staff and the food was fantastic. Steve, the owner, was a great host. Food was reasonably priced and again the service was great.

The food was authentic and very tasty. The service was good. The girls in national costume add to the atmosphere. The green curry was beautiful and the rice was cooked to perfection. The price is very good. The view over the ocean is great.

Food was fantastic, location right on Bulcock Street. Prices very good. Parking can be a problem. It can be easy to miss, as it is upstairs and access is through a narrow stairwell.

After reading great reviews on this we thought we might have finally found a good Thai restaurant in QLD, but unfortunately we were very disappointed. The meals were too watery and lacking any proper flavour. Will not be back not recommend it to friends.

Where do we begin.. Firstly, the state of the garden in the entrance is a good gauge of the standard of restaurant that awaits, with half dead plants greeting us in dirty cheap, black plastic pots. We were then greeted by cardboard boxes in the foyer of the restaurant. We could also see more half dead plants through dirty glass... More
