Love this restaurant. Food and service excellent. I had Massaman curry, which tasted just like I had in Thailand. Just wish the dessert menu was homemade. Nice garden area too! I suppose it's good that they offer both Thai and Indian, but I'm not keen when restaurants mix different cuisines in one kitchen.

What a lovely restaurant with delicious food, and you have a choice, either Indian or Thai! A different rooms available for dinner in private or together, a really special find.

We spent three weeks in Thailand in 2012 and we adore Thai food. We were not disappointed on our third visit to blue orchid. The service is excellent and the food is exquisite. Can't wait for our next visit.

The portions were a little the small side but the food and service was excellent, and typically Thai in its quality. I particularly like the smiling and cheerful serv.ice. Great value for money

This time, I merely had a simple gaeng keow wan keung (Thai green curry with giant prawns) and khao... More

My parents have a really good local Thai restaurant, but we have been struggling to find one in SW Beds that is not ridiculously pricey or seems to make everything by first putting in a ton of sugar. Then we happened upon the Blue Orchid and gave it a try. Well, the food was more original than most and not... More
