“Great!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

First and foremost you are greeted at Orchids Thai by some of the most polite and kind staff in town! It is a small establishment that you may not think much of from the curb...but do yourself a favor and head on in!! Everything on the menu is fresh and delicious! You must start your meal with the fried spring rolls and be sure to ask for the spicy tray (your array of 4 dipping sauces---bring the heat!) The lad nah noodles with shrimp are wonderful (but add some heat from the spicy tray!) Again, I get caught up ordering the same thing all the time because it is so good. Their sushi rolls are fresh and yummy. Another MUST is the coconut ice cream with fried banana coins drizzled with honey! So good! The staff is just so polite and it is evident that they want you to enjoy 100% of your meal. Excellent.

“Experience Thai food at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014 via mobile

Orchids Thai restaurant is an experience not to be missed if you love Thai food - the dishes are available in any level of spice to your taste- the peanut salad dressing is so delicious that they sell it in jars to take home - the pad thai is out of this world as is the red curry - they have brown rice which is great. The food is beautifully plated and presented. The service is warm and welcoming- highly recommend it!

“Always Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

You have a choice of spices or no spice at all so the food appeals to everyone in the group, even if someone says they don't like Thai food. The vegetables are fresh and the chicken is real chicken,not cubed stuff that some restaurants serve. It's always crowded at lunch time but we never have a problem getting seated quickly. The decor and atmosphere are lovely.

“Inedible, way too salty”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

If you like that "brown sauce" that bad chinese cooking uses, then this is the place for you! Although this is Thai food, every sauce they use starts with a thickened soy base similar in taste to that gross "brown sauce" . I ordered drunken noodles and could only pick out and eat the vegetables (of which there were WAY too few). Mostly the dish was noodles in the salty sauce. Of the 3 other people who were with me, they had a similar opinion of the food.
