“Very good Thai restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

Everything about this restaurant is top notch. My daughter, Dr. Sydney Everhart, was visiting from Corvallis, Oregon. She took my wife, other daughter, and in-laws to the Blue Orchid for lunch. She had eaten there once before and told us that the food and service was excellent. She was correct.

“The best Thai in Lincoln.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

It's hard to find strong, sweet Thai Iced Coffee in Lincoln--Blue Orchid always hits the nail on the head with that, as well as their Drunken Noodles and Pad See-ew. Never disappointed with this place, and their lunch is a steal with an entree and soup for around ten dollars.

“Relaxing ambiance, excellent food, reasonable prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

My wife and I joined four others at the Blue Orchid while in Lincoln for a high school class reunion. The menu offers a variety of tasty meals, beautifully presented, and reasonably priced. The ambiance is pleasant, relaxing, and quiet enough that conversations can take place. Our server was efficient, friendly, and agreed to split our bill even though that is not the restaurant's policy. We definitely will return to the Blue Orchid when we are in Lincoln again.

“Favorite restaurant in Lincoln, NE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

I always look forward to going to Blue Orchid, it is by far my favorite place to go in Lincoln. It can be a great date night location, or a relaxed lunch with a friend. The food is always great and i'm never disappointed.

“Best date night restaurant in lincoln”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

Great food, drinks and good atmosphere in downtown location. The prices are very reasonable. I don't think it's probably family friendly for patents with young children.
