On a recent road-trip, my wife and I stopped here. We're vegan, and on the road we use an iPhone App provided by Happy Cow to locate vegetarian/vegan friendly restaurants, Thai Orchid was one of the only choices in Wichita Falls. Our waitress clearly confirmed that vegan food could be easily prepared. It is always nice to hear that someone... More

If you are new to Thai food, decide whether or not you would like a rice or a noodle dish. Then, go from there. The curries have it for me. I have eaten Thai food all over the world (excluding Thailand, unfortunately), and the Thai Orchid's panang curry is the best I've ever tasted. There are vegetarian and options available--just...

The food was very good! The service was good as well. I read a review on this restaurant where someone was complaining that it used to be an italian restaurant??? Who cares? the food is great and the price is right. I would send anyone who likes Thai food to this place, my wife and I loved the food and... More

The building needs a LOT of remodeling and renovating. I have heard that a restaurant's restrooms will tell you a lot about the quality of the restaurant as a whole. Since it was my first time eating there, I went to the restroom first. It was VERY old and creepy in there. The toilets barely flushed and the sink barely... More

The food is alright. It is NOT Thai food though. I don't know what they are serving, but it sure isn't authentic Thai food. What ever they are serving, it is okay. But they don't know the difference of 'spicy' and 'hot'...If I want something spicy, I want more flavor. Not putting jalapeno seeds in it to make it burn... More

The food is OK. I have tasted much better Thai in big cities. The Thai curry is a bit runny and the coconut flavor is not apparent. The lunch specials are good and inexpensive, generally under $7. They make a decent Pad Thai and the service is fairly fast for pick up. Ok for lunch, but definitely not dinner level... More

Good, but not trully true thai. The food sort of tastes the same, there are no real garnishments, the atmosphere is dark and drury, and they play country music. I love country music when I'm eating barbecue, etc. But, there is something about eating cuisine from the orient and hearing a country twang.

A great place for thai food. Also if you are vegetarian they will have different meals you can choose from. Food is very cheap and it comes in large portion. The ambiance is not the best, but for the price you are paying for the meal and the taste of it, it is fine. I love eating there with my... More

I've eaten here 3 times since 2005, and it has never gotten better...if anything, it's got worse. Dirtier, greasier, dustier as the years progressed. The food was always abysimal. The layout was just strange. If you're in Wichita Falls, and you want Thai, go to Dallas. If you want 'oriental' food, head to Grand Buffet or Hunan.
