We decided to go to the Blue Orchid in Aspley guise for Valentine's Day as we had been here before and really loved the food. I booked a few weeks before to make sure we could get a table and the booking was accepted. A week before Valentine's Day we received a call from the restaurant advising us that it... More

I visited this restaurant with three work colleagues for dinner. The food was really tasty and beautifully presented, the staff unobtrusive yet efficient, and prices reasonable. I did find the place a little chilly and I saw that after we'd moved to our table, they brought in a fan heater for the reception area. The garden seems to have a... More

We dined with friends, had a lovely evening. Made to feel so welcome, hospitality is second to none and the food is excellent. Love the ambiance, perfect for romantic meal for two or an evening out with family and friends and reasonably priced too. Highly recommend. P.S We've been to the Thai in Woburn as well, but in our opinion... More

This place was close to my hotel, I was looking forward to a nice Thai meal, but in reality I was quite disappointed. I asked for my dish extra hot, but if that was the best they could do they shouldn't bother. Duck starter was nice, but very Chinese rather than Thai ! I don't do Thai very often and... More

Gorgeous food whether you eat in or out. Food cooked from fresh very quickly, but very comfortable waiting area anyway. We rate the Thai food a little above the Indian, but the Indian is good too. Two main course dishes and 2 noodle and rice dishes comes to about £18-20 and is very good value as it's so good.

We have visited this restaurant twice in the past year, when staying at the nearby Moore Place hotel. It offers both Thai and Indian menus. We chose the Thai menu. The food was good, delicately flavoured. Crispy duck starter very nice. Service very efficient and pleasant. It gets busy in the evening, so I would recommend booking.
