Heat not Flavor

Having lived in Petoskey since 2009, I will say that the Thai Orchid is our favorite restaurant., we are especially fond of the curries and Tom KHa Kai soup. However, in the last year, the curries seem to have become hotter and lack underlying flavors. I know hot is trendy but I prefer flavor.

Great Thai food in a quaint little restaurant downtown. We had a group of 8 that got seated right away even though they were quite busy. Service was very good and efficient. Everyone enjoyed their dish of choice. Kids loved the fried rice and pad thai. They are not shy with their spices so be warned. We love it spicy... More

Fun Thai restaurant in northern Michigan. Food is very good, not excellent – but in all fairness I'm comparing it to the Thai restaurants in Chicago. The service was good, we have a large group and food came out pretty quickly. Surprised that they closed at 9 o'clock on Saturday evening and even turned away customers that came in at... More

Enjoyed a nice lunch with good service in an attractive, clean restaurant. Both the curray dish and Pad King were delicious.

Everything was delicious--the crispy roll appetizer, my wife's pad thai noodles with shrimp (which I finished), and my pad thai curry noodles (with shrimp and scallops)! The wine was also very good.

Wonderful little place in downtown Petoskey MI. The food is much better than most Thai restaurants with tasty flavors. We had two fresh hot entrees and dessert and loved it all. The place is clean and colorful. We ordered the Thai Orchid PAD Thai and PAD Woon Sen for entrees and the coconut ice cream and stickey rice for dessert.... More

Yes, Thai Orchid has always been very good year after year. A fairly small and colorful restaurant. Comfortable booths and tables and diligent servers wearing lovely long Thai dress. Great menu with a variety of choices. Food is deliciously fresh. We were served large spring rolls, uncooked, filled with fresh veggies. I would have preferred the deep fried spring rolls.... More

Holy Cow! Loved, loved, loved this place! While shopping in the Gaslight District(another fabulous experience), we came upon this restaurant. Atmosphere was very relaxing and staff was kind and courteous. Husband had the pad Thai and I had the Tom Kha soup and Pineapple curry. Whoa! That stuff was so good that I was NOT leaving until every drop was... More

My husband and I decided to have dinner at Orchid Thai after walking around in the whole Downtown. Service was good, and decor and atmosphere were great! It does look like a fine dining restaurant when you peek into the window from outside. The price of the food is reasonable but still a bit high in my opinion because of... More
