We love this restaurant. This restaurant has been open under the same owner for many years-maybe since they have opened. We have eaten many times over the years. The food is fresh and consistant. The service has always been good, even on refills. We order an appetizer and an entree. All appetizers are good, but the spring rolls are especially... More

On Sunday 8/31/14, while vacationing in Destin, Florida, we ordered three (3) shrimp basil fried rice for take out, went back to hotel next door, opened my container, saw a bunch of dirty raw scallion, frozen green beans & carrot, pushed them aside and eat some shrimp (with tail on) and rice then I noticed something ODD in the rice....

You assumed that it was some roaches! You were satisfied... More

the lady that works there, needs to learn to smile. got a hint of racism. i mean we are paying for an average tasting food but, the least we expect is a smile and positive attitude.

Had dinner with the family while vacationing in Destin. The place was nearly empty when we arrived and waited at least 10 minutes before we were even greeted only to be asked if we had a reservation. Seriously?? Atmosphere is typical. Our food was average except for the coconut soup and summer rolls. Seems they have staffing issues. Not so... More

I guess it's about time for me to write a review for this Thai restaurant. I've been eaten Thai food at this place since I got here a few weeks ago... I did try other Thai restaurants in Destin, but none can match this one! I try their Grill Pork, curry dishes, Pad Thai and many other dishes, they are... More

After a day of shopping at the outlets, we happened to see this restaurant tucked back in the corner of a little strip mall. We are so glad we did! The food was delicious! Some of the best Thai we've had. My husband had the yellow curry, and I had the vegetarian Thai Basil. We realized how focused we were... More

I really don't want to review this place as it our secret getaway. But everyone is so friendly and the food is so good here, we shouldn't keep it to ourselves. There are more expensive thai restaurants in the area, but none that is consistently excellent as the royal orchid.
