On a short business trip to Glasgow, I found the Thai Orchid just up the street from my hotel. When traveling alone for work, I like to find places to eat that offer speedy service and secluded tables. The Thai Orchid was ideal for that, and the food was very tasty and well presented. I had banana fritters for desert,... More

Very tasty meal, and not ridiculously hot like some other Thai meals we've had! Good attentive service and lovely and clean.

So, my dad and his brother had not met in 49 years. We decided to meet at the Thai Orchid at the suggestion of my uncle's family. What a perfect Place to meet. It is just small enough that you feel cozy and welcome. The staff are wonderfully friendly. It was obvious this restaurant has many repeat customers and after... More

We were staying in Glasgow and walking back to the hotel when we spotted Thai Orchid and decided to go in. It was quiet but wasn't a mainstream time so expected it. We were greeted by friendly staff. It was clean and well set out. The food was, literally out of this world and can recommend the salt and pepper... More

I ate dinner here twice during a week in Glasgow. The staff was very welcoming and the service was attentive. The duck curry, pork spareribs and chicken satay (with tasty peanut sauce) were excellent but the lamb curry was not quite as good as everything else.

Thai food is just simply amazing, but there is a shortage of Thai restaurants in Glasgow. The service here is like you are in a 5 star hotel, even at then end of the meal i went to get my jacket but i was ushered away as they wanted to get it for me! Honestly get treated like royalty here.... More

I visited this restaurant on 30 May with my partner and was glad I did. The service was great, and the food was brilliant. They have the best satay sauce I have had in a while and the complimentary Thai crackers to start were lovely! It took me a while using the facilities due to mobility issues and their response...
