My son and I went to the lunch buffet and were greatly disappointed. This was our first visit and I don’t imagine there will be another. The buffet was slim, and not what I expected in a Thai restaurant. I have eaten at many Thai...restaurants in several different states and this one wasn’t up to par. The price is expensive for a lunch buffet in my opinion. We arrived a little after twelve (noon) and from the minute we sat down I felt rushed. We were aware the location closed at 2pm but for the time we arrived, I wasn’t expecting a rushed feeling. There were trays on heat lamps, not so warm and the variety and amount of food in each tray was very slim. I tried several things, but wasn’t impressed with really anything. The one statement you will loudly get, because it is posted everywhere is “eat what you want, but eat it all” I felt like I was under scrutiny the entire time to scrape all my food off my plate. Yet when I got up to get something, my soup bowl still full of soup was taken off the table. I can’t say food was “bad” it just wasn’t the experience I like in traditional Thai food. The atmosphere was moderate and not very appealing. The service was just service, no greetings, just nothing. I do not like to give bad reviews, but honestly I expect much more from a buffet and any establishment I eat at. I find that dining is an experience to enjoy and when it’s not pleasant and the food doesn’t make up for the lack of hospitality... it’s just not my kind of place.More

As we entered the restaurant we were instantly greeted by a kind man that allowed us to sit where ever we pleased. Small building, clean, and cozy atmosphere. I ordered the Tom Kha (my favorite Thai soup) and my friend ordered the sweet and sour...chicken. The Tom Kha was perfectly flavored with lots of veggies, tangy and mild. The sweet and sour was well liked also. The service was outstanding, it was the same man that had seated us. I just really enjoyed his demeanor and attentiveness.More

The thai buffet is awesome fresh veggies everyday have 32 items on it. Lot to choose from the buffet. Atomphere is laid back casual dinning. If you are in a hurry for lunch this is the place to go

We were directed to this Thai Restaurant by a local so decided to try it! It is the first time we had been to a Thai buffet and it was nice to be able to try different dishes without ordering a full dinner! Everything was...prepared very well and very tasty. It seems to be a popular place but staff continually checked and filled the empty trays. I even tried the tapioca, much different than our "American" style! It was good! We would not hesitate to come back.More

All items on the buffet looked like they had been scraped off the plates of the previous customers. I did not stay.

Went for lunch buffet and was not at all what I would expect from an area with so many Thai restaurants. The buffet warmers need to be turned up a bit as food was luke warm. Service was spotty but it's a buffet. Tried it...and will not do buffet again. I will come back for an evening try and order from the menu as I have heard good things about this place but buffet was lacking.More

I am not normally a buffet person. But - when I want the best Thai in town, I go to the Orchid house. The food is hot, flavorful, authentic, and they have a GREAT selection. You cannot miss here. The staff is friendly and attentive....The last time we were there we were treated to 4 Buddhist Monks praying before the meal. We are not Buddhist but we thought it was a great experience to be included in such a heartfelt event. The inside is clean and they have don a lot to add some unique ambience. We LOVE this place. You will also.More
