Thai cuisine has become increasingly popular in Chester County over the past 5 years or so. Royal Thai Orchid was one of the first Thai restaurants to enter this area, and it is still one of the best, if not THE best. The prices here are super-reasonable, and the service is outstanding. The dining room is large and carpeted, and the tables are spread generously apart from each other, so the noise level is low--a vast improvement over so many of the trendy, wooden floor, shouting-patrons restaurants so common around here. The food is consistently good. For appetizers, give the tulip or Thai dumplings a try; the mushroom soup is the absolute best I have ever tasted! Entrees which we enjoy include chu-chee duck; curry; soft shell crabs; and tilapia, among others. The sauces lean toward the spicy side, so if you have a delicate stomach, you might want to request that they turn down the heat. Their ice cream is homemade and delicious--the coconut ice cream with mango sauce and encased in a chocolate shell is top-notch and a work of art as well. The restaurant is BYOB, and that's a plus too. All in all, one of our favorite restaurants in this area.
