I have never felt the urge to write a review on any restaurant and have eaten in many! Travelled 20 miles to try this venue as my wife is Thai and she wanted to check it out. Arrived at 6pm to an empty restaurant, which is ok with me as the staff can pay you extra attention. A friendly welcome... More

Since Marlborough town centre has cellular reception from the Stone Age, we were unable to check Trip Advisor before we entered this empty restaurant from Hell! Anyway, we have just returned to our hotel still reeling and queasy from possibly the worst "Thai" meal we have ever had anywhere in the world. It would certainly be in the Top 5... More

We visited The Thai Orchid in Marlborough for the first time and had a really lovely experience. We were dining for two and found the service excellent, delicious house dry white wine and a stunning meal. The wok menu was particularly amazing. Really fresh ingredients. We were tempted by the deep fried frogs legs which came highly recommended, but opted... More

I love this little restaurant. The food is always delicious and the staff are really friendly. I recommend both the restaurant and the take away menu.

I have never written a bad review before but after such a terrible experience I felt I had to write something. This was a birthday meal out and was supposed to be a treat. We should have taken the empty restaurant at peak time as a sign but as we had booked we stayed. Mistake. Overall the food was tasteless,... More

We visited the Blue Orchid after being let down by a table reservation elsewhere in the town. The staff were friendly and the food was very freshly cooked, and really tasty. Great value for money too - this is well worth a visit.

This restaurant deserves to be much busier. We visited Marlborough last weekend and hadn't booked anywhere for dinner; we found the Blue Orchid. The food had excellent flavour and was well cooked. Service was friendly and efficient. Will book a table when visiting the area next time as I'm sure when others find this family run business it will become... More

Visited on the evening of the Marlborough Mop, the rest of the towns eateries were very busy, so it was a 'Pleasant' surprise to see that the Blue Orchid was empty. Maybe in hindsight this should have told us something. I was tempted to leave due to the overpowering damp musty smell, but as the staff were so welcoming and... More

Firstly, you have to get over the decor, and possibly the fact that the restaurant may be empty. Do not let this put you off. The food is so tasty, it is worth it! Take away is good too! We sat in for a meal, as a last minute thing- and just got in before a large party of 20!... More
