While the temperature dropped down to -30 C, the excellent spicy hot food warmed up the hungry belly!! We visited Thai Orchid after many years. It looks like the original owners may have sold it to a young couple. The food was excellent in taste. The plate size is reasonable. The menu identifies the heat of the dish by a... More

In a landscape of motels, malls and corporate chain restaurants, the Thai Orchid is a welcome oasis serving fresh, wholesome and subtly delicious Thai dishes. Figuring out how to get off the busy one-way, five-lane Gateway Blvd. or worse still the parallel multi-lane Calgary Trail running the other direction is a real challenge for all but the experienced Edmonton driver,...

Stopped in on the way home from the airport don't let the location or outside appearance fool you. The red curry shrimp and green curry chicken brought us back to Thailand. Excellent flavor and the right amount of heat! Fish cakes were traditional as well. It was busy, but good food is worth the wait. We'll be back!

Visited Thai Orchid on our way through Edmonton. Food was very good - we are not experts on authentic Thai, so I cannot comment - but the dishes we selected were very good. Fresh, good presentation. Coconut rice was the best I have ever had. Portion sizes were on the small side - order an extra dish. The fresh rolls... More

We come here once every 4 - 6 weeks to enjoy our favourite dishes: Fresh Salad Rolls (5 per order), Pad Thai, Cashew Chicken, Stir Fry Veggies, Beef Curry and Jasmine Rice. We always have enough left overs for two lunches. The servers are friendly and are from Thailand. We have been coming here for years and have not been... More

We cannot miss this spot on any Edmonton trip. You shouldn't either. The location's hardly inspiring (who'da ever thought to eat beneath an EconoLodge?) but the food's wonderful. Tell them if you don't want things too spicy! But, don't miss their Pad Thai (one of the best in the West). Not the fastest service in the world, but friendly. Not... More

Ignore the location and the construction right beside this place as the food made up for it. We had chicken, beef, and shrimp in various stages of heat. All dishes were very flavourful and the waitress was simply charming. We shared the middle soup and, despite a no chilli sign, it had some pleasant heat to it. Can only imagine... More
