It was an extremely hot day and the fIrst thing noticeable was the lack of air-con. They tried thier level best to accommodate by placing a fan by our table, however, it proved Ineffective. We were offered drinks and I was recommended Thai ice tea. She said it was very nice and popular. I consider myself to be quite adventurous... More

The sunday buffet is nice but waiters and owner are rude and not polite. Even if the food is good because of the service, i m not really willing to go back.

Got some different things for a takeaway, have eaten here a few years ago and liked it but this was beyond disappointing. The Pad Thai, normally a favourite dish with me, tasted and smelled putrid, like farm animal waste. Took one bite and left the rest, couldn't even leave the plate on the table. Mixed starters were OK but the... More

I like my Thai really spicy and strongly flavoured. This is not that. However, it is nonetheless very nice. Think of it as less-greasy Chinese. The service is efficient and friendly and the conservatory is a nice place to sit. I've not eaten anything that wasn't good here, and prices are reasonable. I would avoid the dessert trolley next time;... More

The staff was very friendly and the food was good. However, it wasn't very intimate as the lights were too bright so not very romantic, despite the lovely decoration and sculptured furniture.

Previously I rated this restaurant as one of my favourites in Oxford. I have recommended it over and over again to friends. But never ever again. Last night was, without a shadow of a doubt, the most disorganised dining experience I have ever had. We had a table booked for 8s, for 7 of us. We all arrived on time.... More

Thai Orchid, when first opened, was once a fantastic place to eat. Since having several new owners and staff afraid it is not the same, in our opinion. Ordered meal by phone and was waiting for me when I arrived. Staff friendly enough in the short time there. Ordered Goong Tom Nam (King Prawns soup), Neua Pad Ped Bai Graprao... More
