“Serious Thai food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012 via mobile

I went for lunch, that was a very good value for the food. Real Thai flavors, the glass noodle salad, the jungle curry, the noodle as a side dish, everything delicious

“Delicious food and excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Three of us went for dinner last weekend and it was excellent from start to finish. Food was delicious and portions large. Recommend the massaman curry - duck if your a meat eater or tofu if you are vege - both amazing. And free thai crackers with the tastiest satay sauce ever - could have just sat eating that all night! Staff all very attentive and restaurant itself is lovely. Nothing to fault.

“Very good food if a bit pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

Large menu choice, both my starter and main very well cooked and delicious. Staff very attentive to the point of being too much, I was asked if I wanted a second beer 4 times. Rice an extra with curry main led a 2 course meal with 2 beers to be very close to 30 pounds.

“Excellent food but managers attitude was a disgrace!!!!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012 via mobile

I went to thai orchid with my partner late 1 night around 9.50pm as both of us were working late, when we entered the restaurant the manager looked angry as if he was wanting to close however there were other diners still in so we were taken to a table a young pleasent waiter came to take our drinks order and both orderd soft drinks however when they came they were completely flat so i asked him to change them so he said he would have to get the manager so with a disgusting attitude he charged over to the table asking what our problem was and i explained again he then snatched them off the table and went to get more however this time opening a small glass bottle at the bar he opened ordinary bottles when we were drinking diet again not our fault but as we pointed this out to him i got a shake of the head and then the correct drinks were brought to the table and slammed down. he then stood with his back to us all night brought our meal practicaly through it onto the table he never once asked if our meal was ok and even when clearing the plates he didnt even say a word or offer coffee or desert menu so we just asked for the bill. I was very close to asking what his problem was but didnt want to cauae a scean however when paying the bill i left a 1p tip hopefully tht will make him change his attitude lol will defo go baxk for the food but next time if he is there ill be making it clear i dont want him to serve me or be next to my table :) !!!!
