“Sorry read all the reviews was very disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013 via mobile

We ordered takeaway and maybe we are spoilt by our local Thai takeaway in Sydney but this really was the worst Thai I have ever had. I ordered the pad Thai n just could not eat it my husbands was a bit better. Was expensive we normally pay $24 for what we have at home here it was $39 and I put mine in the bin just could not eat it even though I was hungry. Sorry folks just don't want anyone else to be as disappointed as we were. Lovely restaurant and decor,food let it down.

“Thai Orchid Sunday night with family”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Owner was very Quick to take our order as we had 3 year olds that we're hungry. Meals were delivered in a timely manner.We eat Thai on a weekly basis as we are traveling around the country.We found the presentation of the mains below the normal standard we are used to.Also the two mains we had were overpowered in terms of flavor of the sauce.Having said that entrees were good so we expect that maybe the main chef was having a Sunday night off. We would definitely give the place another go as it would be unfair to judge the restaurant on one visit only as it appears to have a good reputation in the town.

Good food, good atmosphere. I was there on a Tuesday night and going by the crowd I recommend booking in advance for weekends.
