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.

Lovely thai food. Pad thai 1 of the best I've had. Great service and lovely people. They went the extra mile for us. Will definitely come back again. I suggest you try Thai Orchid

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.

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

The best presentation of thai food that we have ever come across, there are some very talented people with knives that can turn veges into carved insects and flowers. the flavours are exceptional and the portion sizes are bang on. we will be back. our kids loved it as well, they both had thai dishes and are not big vege...
