“Wonderful all around as always”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Great place, food A*, staff attentive, beautiful decor. Been coming here over the past 15 years and it never disappoints. Great to take friends as it will never let you down. Flavours authentic and extremely fresh. Dessert trolley FAB. Chocolate crunchy dessert is heaven on earth!

“Great atmosphere and good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Very good Pad Thai - not too sweet. Beautifully cooked tender chicken in Red Curry sauce. Now, if they just served Hook Norton beer....! Lovely staff and good atmosphere, even on a quiet Monday night

“Consistently Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

I am a frequent lunch guest at this restaurant, where they offer a fixed price buffet (currently £13.99 per head). Not being a fan of "eat as much as you like" buffets, I was taken here originally by a business colleague - and came away very pleasantly surprised!

The choice of dishes is very wide and includes starters, soup, mains and desserts, the latter of which is most unusual for an oriental-cuisine restaurant. The biggest plus point is that the dishes are regularly replenished, so the food is always fresh and hot. The flavours are exceptionally good and the quality second-to-none.

The decor is beautiful - heavy carved tables and chairs, elaborate gold and vibrantly coloured wall plaques, exotic living plants throughout and even a fair size pond well-stocked with goldfish and Koi. The staff are attentive, courteous and efficient, beautifully clothed in traditional Thai dress.

If there is a criticism to be made, it is that (in common with most other restaurants) their drinks prices generally are on the high side, particularly the soft drinks. Also, if you appreciate good coffee after a meal - you won't get it here.

“Expensive but nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012 via mobile

If you visit the Thai Orchid expect to pay a lot, we had a meal for two which was £70 without any alchohole! It was however a lovely meal and as a special occasion or celebration it's a great place to go. The decoration was lovely and the waitresses were also really welcoming.
