We have been to this restaurant a couple of times before and on the last occasion, the service was very poor but we decided to give it another try. Previous occasions, we waited and waited for our food and were told due to a bus load of Asian diners arriving (they arrived after us) this impacted on the service we... More

Instead of our normal evening meal a the Calabash, we were invited to the Orchid. What a great mistake. I asked the waiter to recommend a dish , absolutely terrible.Desert was worse.Never again. The Calabash is the place to go.

We were booked to have a Chinese themed dinner here by our tour operator and I did not enjoy it at all. The food came out all at the same time and was not hot. It was as if they prepared it before we got here. This we know because when we told them that they did not bring out... More

We had dinner at The Orchid. My son had sushi and he enjoyed it. My husband and I had the Thai prawn soup and it full of flavour and delicious. We shared a nasi goreng. The portion was huge. It was excellent. I will definitely have this again. Overall great service and great food.

Wide range of tasty traditional Thai food. Located on the main street, this restaurant has a relaxing, cosy and friendly atmosphere. Staff are friendly and service is excellent.

My wife and I recently went out to Sun City to handover a Harley Trike as a prize to a lucky gambler! Once we'd handed the trike's keys to its delirious new owner we went looking, somewhat circumspectly, for a restaurant to eat dinner. We didn't expect much but took a chance on the Orchid because we like Oriental food.... More

The food is excellent! We have eaten here on many occasions when in SA and staying at Sun City and have never been disappointed. The service is also fantastic. This time we were celebrating a 40th birthday. We had the back room giving a little more privacy to the group. The food (although a set menu) was again excellent. A... More

The atmosphere was average as was the food. It was well priced and not over the top. The service was somewhat disappointing as the waiters tried to hoodwink a large table, thinking they were tourists but they were from SA and did not succeed in their quest.

The Nasi Goreng was disgusting and Kung Po chicken was just bland. Supreme waste of money!!! We booked a table and it was reserved in the middle of no where and the restaurant was empty.
