Pa Nang Curry is great and staff has improved

I eat here fairly regularly. I've always enjoyed their yellow curries with brown rice. The medium spice is just right. In the past, I've been slightly disappointed with their wait staff; however, on this occasion I was satisfied with the level of service and the friendliness of the staff.

New to Salem and trying out the restaurant scene. Odd location in the top of a semi-vacant mall building. Food was decent.

I had a consistent meal- yellow curry. I love the flavor of the sauce. A little bit of a wait but that was more the time I went.

Food is great. Service was great as well. My server made suggestions and food came out quick. This was my second visit. The amount of food was much less than in the past.

Thai Orchid staff welcome you with a big smile and always say "Thanks and see you again" when you leave. There is a reason this restaurant is popular! Very good food, flavorful and slightly different than typical Thai restaurants. We really liked #67 spicy mushrooms. If you want your food Thai hot, order it that way, otherwise it is spiced...

However, there was no feeling you were in a Thai restaurant. The decor was left over from a cowboy themed bar and there were no booths to sit in, nor very many cultural pieces of art. That being said, they are lucky to be there and have done well after a kitchen fire. I liked also that employees were sequestered... More

The Pad Thai and Drunken Noodles were excellent. I went in with low expectations due to the reviews I'd seen on another site but was VERY happily surprised. The food was very fresh, was served quickly and our server was very sweet and attentive. I will definitely be going again! The lunch portion was huge and I'm looking forward to... More

When visiting in Salem we were in the mood for Thai food and chose this place based on TA evaluation. The place had a somewhat unusual view being on the 2nd story and in the corner off a mall building. Large windows offer an interesting view of the busy downtown intersection below. The décor inside was very pleasant. In spite... More

Great view (something relaxing about watching 'life happen' below). Food is always very good and service attentive. Love the depth of their menu and the way we can get together with friends and they never try to hurry you along. You feel very well fed, well served, and content when you leave. Great value as well.

Really nice ambiance. Restaurant is located in a mall so you don't expect the surprise when you walk in. It's upstairs so you have a view. It's especially pretty at night. It's a little bit expensive compared to other Thai in the area. We got cold, so asked to have our dinner packaged to go instead of staying. Server was... More
