Busy and popular

Very tasty Thai food and the staff very attentive. Went for a meal for four of us...and all enjoyed their choices. Two were locals and always have the duck. Would go back again next time in Caloundra.

After many visits to Caloundra we finally booked a table. The Blue Orchid lived up to our expectations - fabulous food, great service and surprisingly affordable liquor costs. The duck is a must try.

I have been dining here with my sister and my dad since I was 14-15 and it really is the best thai I've ever tried. We love the fish cakes and the massaman curry...we are yet to try anything we haven't loved. We even visited Thailand recently and I remember thinking....nope, I still think the thai food at blue orchid... More

This restaurant serves a diverse range of dishes that are tasty and organic. It has a really nice atmosphere which we have enjoyed as a couple as well as with our family (including grandchildren) The food is excellent and to add to that they have the best prices for drinks you will find in a restaurant.

Loved the food, although next time would go for medium spice rather than mild. Seated at window, where you look out at an awning and not much more - pity, as the food is so nice. My 5 stars are for food alone, venue is more like 3.5/5.

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
