Portugal is not the place you go for Thai-food, however after one week Thai is a nice change. We liked the service, but they could served the food faster.

The service started off well...friendly and they made a nice 'cocktail' for the kids and added rum for the adult version. They kept talking about how the food was made with fresh... More

I would like to dispute the one hour wait. Your group of six which included 2 children placed your order after drinks were served which included starters. The children's meal was to split a Pad Thai. Your meal was prepared last as you went off the menu and had a special request. When I did serve your meal I noticed... More

We came as a party of eight hungry teenage athletes and were served with delicious food and the service was incredibly friendly! The food and service put together were so amicable that we had to come another time and the second time was equally as good if not even better! Everything was made fresh from scratch and you could taste... More

Really good thai food and a great atmosphere. The food was freshly made and delicious. The service was good and I really enjoyed visiting the restaurant. It is a little far but it is well worth the walk.

Just back from three weeks in Montigordo, must be the best beach in the Algarve .We had a few meals in the Thai OrchiId. If you are in the area give it a try. The food is cooked to order, but well worth the wait.Could not ask for better.
