Well-priced local takeaway

This has been our Thai takeaway of choice for a while now, the ribs are great and the main dishes are always well-spiced. If you're not a big fan of chilli then ask for the dish mild - our little boy loves the mild green curry! Never eaten in but always seems welcoming and the staff are very... read more

I have visited this restaurant several times over the years. The staff, food + atmosphere always excellent. The Sunday buffet lunch is my favourite such great value. So looking forward to my next visit.

We were going somewhere completely different but our Friends couldn't make it at the last minute so we decided to try somewhere new to us. The Thai Orchid were happy to accommodate us. We went for the special starters and had one each they were tasty, the chicken satay our favourite. Then we had pad Thai which was delicious, a... More

Absolutely beautiful restaurant, well worth a meal simply to admire the decoration, but the food is quite average (especially for Thai). The menu has more than enough variety, but it was difficult to tell the dishes at our table apart beyond their colour. It was an enjoyable enough meal, but I expect more flavour from Thai food.

Six of us arrived in on a Friday evening after work about 6:30. The welcome was very nice. The food was really great! The price was good and the service was polite and quite perfect. The decor is very well thought out and clearly they spent money on it. everywhere is clean and the ambiance is as it should be.... More

Having lived in Rugby for a number of years, I cannot believe that we have not been here before. We had a starter and a main each off the lunch menu. Food was excellent, tasty, well presented and the right portion size. Beef Satay starter was particularly good. Service was prompt and food and drinks arrived fairly quickly after ordering.... More

The interior had a nice atmosphere and decorations but the food isn't really what you're expecting for Thai. We went for food and spent 80 quid for four people. If the food was of a great quality then that'd be fine but the food was of a cheap takeaway or buffet standard. The service was fine it's just a shame... More

So proud to have Thai Orchid in Rugby. The quality of food served here matches that of some of the best known Thai restaurants in London. It's great to have somewhere of this standard to take guests visiting the area.

Having eaten at many Thai restaurants including some of the other Thai Orchid chain we can honestly say that the buffet they do on a Sunday is superb. It beats all other hands down and the choice is amazing. The quality and taste is fantastic and its a real treat we come back to time and time again.

We love Thai food. Indeed our all time favourite Thai restaurant is the Thai Orchid - a sister restaurant - in Banbury but that takes us 30 minutes longer to get to.. We've been many times in the evening when we usually have a Spicy Banquet which is excellent . We recently tried their Sunday buffet lunch after it was... More
