I am not a fan of Thai cuisine but I AM CRAZY FOR THIS PLACE!! At this point I think I am a regular !!. Royal Orchid says it is a Thai restaurant but it really has a variety of dishes that will please everyone. Lunch is especially enjoyable as the atmosphere is relaxing and cooked to order for less...

This is an amazing Thai restaurant. My husband and I both had fried rice. Mine was a combination of protein (beef, pork, and chicken), and my husbands was rather different. I believe it had pineapple and curry in it. He raved about it. They must have well-seasoned wok's because both had that unique flavor of a real Thai restaurant. Mine... More

Ended up at this restaurant totally by accident -- was in the strip shopping center and hungry. Probably wouldn't have found it otherwise. Now I know where to look! Had spring rolls, shrimp-veggie tempura and chicken fried rice. Good cold water constantly refilled. Rice could have been fried a little more -- but that was the only negative.

I have eaten here for many years. The best Thai food in Central Fla. All requests are "Yes" The servers are friendly and helpful. Food can be mild to HOT on request. The duck is crispy. The sauces are lite and flavorful.

DON'T LISTEN TO NEGATIVE REVIEWS. Maybe a competitor. Have visited this place numerous times since October 2013. Highly recommend shrimp soup, hot pepper chicken. Authentic decor, flavor and visited many cities in Thailand. Lunch is a great time of day, and very reasonably priced for the portions. Nothing beats a refreshing Thai tea in the heat. Outstanding customer service.

Much more authentic than Ayutthaya. We enjoy the traditional curries and noodle dishes. The chicken satay is wonderful. Everything we have tried has had excellent flavors. To go service is also excellent. Highly recommended for thai food enthusiasts.

I love thai and finally found a great thai restaurant. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The dishes are presented in wonderful colorful dishes and the selection of dishes is incredible. I've been back for lunch and dinner and have never been disappointed. Save room for the coconut ice cream with fried banana wontons.

A convenient restaurant with friendly staff and a nice selection of dishes. If you're new to Thai cuisine or sensitive to spicy food it is probably ideal to start out with. If however you're fond of Thai cuisine already and prefer it spicy you should definitely consider ordering extra hot. The restaurant was clean, food was served quickly. The quality... More
