One of Lincoln's best

This is one of Lincoln's best restaurants. A nice place to go on a date to enjoy some delicious Thai food. My recommendation: sip on some Saki and eat the Pad Thai. Golden Triangles are yummy appetizers!

I have visited Blue Orchid a few times over the past three years, and my partner and his family have been visiting since the restaurant opened. However, after a recent visit, none of us think we will be going back. We visited for my partner's mother's birthday because she loves the Orchid Chicken: a usually delicious chicken dish served in... More

Great server (Eric) and spectacular food and drinks. The Tom Yum Soup was excellent! The environment was clean and calming, beautiful fresh flowers on the table.

Super spicy green curry and delicious drinks and dessert. The atmosphere was fancy (I felt slightly awkward with my baby there amongst the lawyers and bankers.) Service was on the slow side, but we weren't in any hurry. Would definitely eat here again when visiting Lincoln.

Too salty, oily drunken noodles. $1.50 for one shrimp in soup little outragious. Small portions about $2 overpriced. Not enough vegetables in Asian delight, boiled chicken, (lazy or lack of knowledge) bland. Lot of money for mostly white rice.

I first ate here when it opened and it initially did not wow me. The last couple of times it has been divine. I had the drunken noodles and Thai tea on this trip and it was epic. Seriously nose-running, buzzed on caffeine perfection. Service and price are excellent as well.

Having been here before, I knew what to expect and am pleased they are consistently good. Service is well done and not over the top and the food was very good and the vegetables were fresh. It was busy due to several events going on so I would recommend making reservations, if possible. Even then, they try their best to... More

Blue Orchid has great, unique Thia food. You can choose what type of meat or vegetable you want in each dish. They also have awesome desserts!
