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

5 of us, all of whom have visited Thailand, enjoyed a lovely meal on Friday 27th December at the Blue Orchid. We had a selection of dishes, that we all shared. The restaurant was quiet but the service was friendly and the food both varied and delicious. We have been before several times and will go again!

No atmosphere and photo shown is not correct!! Food was very bland, prawn and squid salad was basically a few lettuce leafs with 5 fried breaded calamari rings and 5 fried breaded prawns with no herbs/spices or sauce!!!! Sea bass was supposed to be served with fish and ginger sauce! A tiny pot of sweet chilli sauce received instead. And... More
