Food is always great, haven't had a bad thing there yet! My wife's favorite restaurant in town. They have a drink called the Drunken Monkey - banana infused Jameson that is off of the charts!

We used to live in Lincoln and ate here at least once a week. This is a very nice restaurant, great atmosphere, perfect for a date and a great step up from all the steak/burger places everywhere. They have a nice patio when the weather is good. Nine times out of ten we called our orders to go; I love... More

Took the Mrs. out for her birthday dinner while traveling in Nebraska. Went to TripAdvisor looking for Thai food and this popped up. Had a wonderful dinner and atmosphere was very pleasant. She ordered Green Curry with Shrimp and I had Pacific Medley. Both were excellent dishes. Would recommend to anyone who likes great Thai food.

We stopped here before a concert at the Pinnacle Center. The service was very good (I can't remember our waiter's name, he had glasses and was very knowledgeable on what he was serving) and our waiter made us laugh frequently. The food was also very good and the drinks were awesome.

We're local, but we often head downtown for Blue Orchid. First time? Try the pad thai with chicken. Love spice? Panang Curry is your dish. Never had a bad meal or service there either. Great selection of wine and whisky too. Steps from the Holiday Inn and Embassy if you're staying there. Highly recommended!

I really love this place!!! Atmosphere is amazing and food is spectacular!! It's defiantly more expensive then some other restaurants around Lincoln but very worth it if you love Thai food!! I always get the Pad Thai and spring rolls as an appetizer. My only complaints are that there are no steamed spring rolls, only fried, and a few of... More

We recently had lunch at Blue Orchid and it was fantastic! The lunch special is great. The Thai Rolls are always a great appetizer. Our party also ordered the Tom Kha soup and the Green Salad with Lemon Ginger dressing. All were good choices, but the Thai Rolls were the standout. The Yellow Curry is delicious - sweet, smoky, yumm!... More

We go to the Blue Orchid every year on our anniversary. They have very nice, high end Thai food. Portions aren't huge for the big eater (like my hubby) but I find they are just right. The food is always tender, appropriately spiced, very flavorful and the service is excellent. Last time they took extra time to help us select... More

We love the Blue Orchid. The food is exceptional, wine list good, and service is good. I like the atmostphere there. It's perfect for a night out at the Lied or just walking around Lincoln's downtown.

I love Thai food and was thrilled with how good the Tom Ka Soup and Red Curry tasted. Very delicious. Warren was my server and I highly recommend him as well! I was in town for business and dined alone. Warren picked out a nice table for me to be tucked away but able to people watch. Very considerate and... More
