connsistently excellent food

The Blue Orchid Thai has been a reliable and consistently good Thai restuarant for awhile. I've been going for over 7 years and its maintained standards in its food. The 15 hour red lamb is delicious, the red curry and massaman are reliably good as well. Peak holiday, Fri and Saturday nights are... read more

Our first experience of Blue Orchid was as take-away, and we were so impressed with the food that we decided to try dine in. There is just something about the restaurant that makes you relax and enjoy the magnificent that food, the super friendly staff and the entire surroundings. Try it. You will not be disappointed.

we ate at this restaurant while we stayed in caloundra August 2015, there were lots of people so we assumed this was a good place to eat. The thai food was nice but nothing special, we were put on a table that was in a cramped little nook (which was probably our fault for not having a booking) however there... More

Magnificent food, and has been everytime we've visited. Wines are very reasonably priced. The room is beautifully decorated with lots of intricate kalagar hangings (contoured sequined needle work). Staff are friendly and courteous. We will continue to be regular diners here.

The food here is great! Big portions and really tasty dishes. Its a nice atmosphere dining in too although the lack of lighting might not appeal to some. I'd rate a 5/5 if I didn't see who I believe was the owner have a go at one of his staff members in front of everyone. Not cool mate...not cool.

We bought takeaways from the Blue Orchid Thai Restaurant twice during a recent week-long stay in Caloundra. The food was very good, the service was great and the pricing was reasonable. I'd happily eat food from there again and would recommend the Blue Orchid to others looking for Thai food in Caloundra.

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
