“Really good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

We went with a groupon deal and were very impressed. My son and his girlfriend have been before and said the food was very good and they were absolutely right! Will definitely go again.

“What a lovely meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

Four of us went to the Blue Orchid on a Groupon deal. What a good choice !! Although there was a limited choice of dishes, they were all very tasty and the portions were good. The service was excellent and we all left deciding to visit again in the near future

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014 via mobile

A lovely calm atmosphere gives you the opportunity to sample the excellent flavours from their wonderful menu. The staff are very friendly and make you feel very welcome. The best Thai food I have had for a long whole. Cannot recommend highly enough

“Really enjoyable evening at Little India”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

We went with a groupon/amazon local voucher type thing and although the journey was just under an hour, it was so worth it!
The Blue Orchid houses Thai and Indian fare and also caters for take away orders.
Compact car park with lovely garden but additional street parking if busy. Ladies loo was up a flight of stairs and immaculately clean.
The staff were attentive and explained the set menu fully and the dishes available were fabulous.
I am not a hot curry fan so our server pointed out the selection that would suit me but there was a lot of choice.
Sadly I couldn't eat everything that was brought out but there was wasn't enough to make a take-away meal either.
Enjoyable meal and nice evening out. Recommended.

“Disappointed!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

We went using the Groupon offer and were looking forward to it, having had a wonderful meal and experience there several years ago. The Thai welcome and goodbyes are no longer anywhere to be seen. We are under the impression that it is run by the Indian side of the operation including a chef who uses basic Thai curry sauces with no sign of fresh ingredients other than red chillies, broccoli and aubergine (!?) and the noodles in the Pad Thai were not quite cooked. Waitrose do a better Thai meal.
