The food was very well prepared and presented. The staff were at tentative and friendly. There was no pressure to vacate your table even though they were very busy. Will certainly go again

After a long day at the hospital a good meal was required. Friendly staff who were prompt in both taking our order and bring the food. The only let down was the slowness in bring the ordered drinks

What great food and service. Our waiter was really pleasant and charming. The starters were plenty big enough to share and good value for money. My main was the sweet and sour chicken and wow was it tasty. The sauce was rich and very smooth and the vegetables nicely cooked. All the mains were great and we would certainly recommend... More

We have had two work functions and and have been very impressed each time with generous portions of well presented, delicious food that did not cost the earth.

I have eaten at the Thai Orchid many, MANY times. For the less aventurous the chicken and sweet peanut sauce would be the go-to meal but if you're more adventuresome there's a lot to choose from. Very friendly staff. The decor's pretty simplistic but no reflection on the food.

My wife and I wanted a quick meal before heading home. The establishment was clean and cheerful. The food was good quality and delivered promptly. Price was reasonable and the waitress friendly. Not the Ritz but well worth the experience. We will come back again. Thank you.

Think one might get a better deal eating in! I ordered 5 dishes for takeaway for family as we celebrated a new grandchild arriving home. We love Thai food but these were the most expensive takeaways I've ever purchased $77!! Might taste nice but I won't be back to try a second time and we were still hungry.
