Great service!

Good quality food, well presented. However for a restaurant 'voted second best Thai restaurant in Australia' there is room for improvement. The green curry beef was lacking in flavour and the sauce was a little watery. The massaman beef was small pieces rather than a large chunk that we are used... read more

We eat here whenever we are in Caloundra and have never been disappointed with the food. We tried home delivery this time but found it very expensive, especially the charge on using the credit card. I would suggest foregoing the delivery and picking it up yourself as it is much cheaper.

This is our second visit, absolutely delicious food. Friends, was there first time having Thai and it certainly won't be the last.

Very nice Thai food. The setting is excellent. Right on the esplanade. We ate here twice in our 8 day stay in the area. It was the only restaurant we returned to. I had Beef Pennang which in the UK we always get sliced fried beef which can be tough. Here the dish was cooked with large cuts of tender... More

Great takeaway thai food however for a casual meal it is also good. The food is moderate price for Thai and probably my favourite is Red Curry Duck

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
