We have been to the Orchid many times, as it was my sons 18th birthday he wanted to spend it in his favourite restaurant. It did not disapoint, infact it went over and beyond our expectations. One woman made it very special and Scott will never forget it. I forget he name, but I have posted a photo. As usual... More

We stopped in for a quick lunch and the offer of two courses for £11.90 had us wondering if it was going to be either good or tiny portions. We were wrong in both counts with a great size starter and a full size main course both delicious. Lunch definitely worth going for.

This restaurant is a Thai/Chinese but the food is very tasty and the service very worth a visit. They do a two course set menu and an à la carte. The food is extremely tasty well presented and you are well looked after by the staff. I have been there twice now and not at the time was I disappointed... More

The food is utterly sublime. You will not get better Thai food anywhere else apart from Thailand. Wine is amazing, service is incredible, I cannot recommend enough. We've been a few times and unlike other experiences, it is always at perfect level.

I found this restaurant by accident and it was such a great surprise. It was within walking distance from the Hilton on Williams street. You see the sign that says "Thai Orchid" and purple lighting inside so you would expect something that is flash but no substance. You would be quite surprise! Once you stepped in, the staff greeted you... More

I can not recommend this restaurant enough. I was staying in Glasgow for work and ate here on a Friday night. I was shown to a lovely table by the window and had prawn crackers, a beer and the menu in my hand in around a minute - which I love! The service was warm, attentive and efficient without being...

Found this restaurant wandering down Argyle st. The staff was very attentive and friendly. Highly impressed with the food. It was truly authentic Thai. Not only was it presented beautifully on the plate, the food tasted amazing. If I'm ever in Glasgow again I will definitely be going back.
