I visited Thai Orchid with a group of friends while staying in Hamilton. What a lovely find. We were warmly greeted and really enjoyed the ambience of the restaurant. It was hard to decide as everything looked so tempting. We all loved our meals and the service from our lovely smiley waiter. I would highly recommend.

Went out with a group of friends. Really enjoyed the food, could have easily eaten any of the meals that came out. The duck was delicious. Good Thai food and what you would expect. Service was good and prompt and it's handy that it's BYO.

Ordered five dishes for takeaway. Rice is included? No, $2.50 per serving of rice, which turned out to be tiny. The rest of the meal I would claim is a rip-off. Paid $80 for a meal that should have been $40. Sad as some of the dishes are quite decent.

We have been dining here regularly for many years, and it was the first place we thought of recently when we felt like having some of our favourite Thai cuisine! The entree of Thai fish cakes was very nice (and took less than 10 minutes to come out). There were four pieces to a plate which was perfect for two... More

Had booked a table for 3. We have been to the Thai Orchid several times before and have always loved the food. Not this time, and very very expensive for what we got. am thinking it may have changed ownership or a chef change. We shared a mixed platter of starters. $12 for 6 small pieces. We then ordered a...

Not overly cheap, but the yellow Thai curry is delicious, nice atmosphere and great service. Parking is great if your going for dinner and I would say fairly good for lunch.

Shared a most pleasant Friday night dinner with my wife at this delightful restaurant. It is clearly a popular dining destination, judging by how busy the place was during our visit and we were fortunate to get a table considering we had made no prior reservation. The restaurant is well presented with simple but clean, tidy table settings, even with... More

Good food for the money. Dined alone but was still enjoyable enough. Would go back again alone or with someone else
