One of our favorites!

We go here every year for our anniversary and every time we ask the same thing...why don't we come back more often?? The Thai peanut sauce with the chicken skewers is deliciois! We have never had a bad meal here...sometimes a little spicey but still very tasty!

I've ate here once and plan to again during my next trip to Lincoln,. I had the drunken noodles and they were excellent. I had heard nothing but good things about Blue Orchid and I found our for myself that all the accolades were true.

We dined at the Blue Orchid on a Sunday evening. The restaurant is very tastefully decorated and the service was fantastic. We had chicken curry, pad thai, and a stir fry dish. The portions were perfect and the food was excellent! I can't wait to go there again the next time I am in Lincoln!

The spice level is just right. Panang curry is delicious and the green papaya salad has appropriate heat. The lemongrass and Thai chile martini is excellent and had more heat than the curry! I'd would definitely go back next time I'm in Lincoln.

I've been stopping once a year in Lincoln and make it a point to eat here. Still a good meal. with a nice beer and wine list. It's not chain food and getting a tasty but spicy meal always appeals to me. I tend to go with the green thai chili with chicken. Yes, I would return.

I came here a few years ago to eat while I was in town and made it my first place to eat when I came back for work. I was not disappointed and the food was just as yummy (if not better) than before. Great service as always and nice atmosphere. Nice and quiet too. Oh and be careful with... More

Surprisingly good Thai food and a full bar. It's on the side of a building rather than facing the street so if you put the address in your GPS, you'll drive right by.

This is one of my go to places in Lincoln. The yellow curry and Asian delight are amazing, and they have some of my favorite spring rolls!
