Very disappointed! We ordered take away green chicken curry , red beef curry and lemongrass chicken and they all tasted like the curry was out the same jar just a different colour . Hardly a vegetable in sight , sloppy , inauthentic and the meat tough and tasteless . Possibly the worst Thai food we've tasted ! Waste of money... More

Check your invoice before making the final payment as we were overcharged. Very, very busy environment meant there was no-one available to discuss this overcharge. Large room and very noisy. Not good for those with hearing difficulties unless you secure a balcony seat. Service was reasonable and meals delivered quickly. Meals were tasty however having just come back from a... More

We were booked in for 6.30 and were one of 5 tables occupied so we were getting great service. The food was delivered at a reasonable time and was very tasty. By 7.30 it get busy and very noisy. Price was a little high at $100 per couple

I ordered a takeaway prawn pad thai noodle... it had no flavour what so ever and only 3 prawns.. ( an insult ) the seemingly unhappy staff here also need a bit of a kick of chilly or something .. I won't return ... Wish I'd gone back to Lemongrass Thai on Rundle street... where the same dish was tasty... More

I guess for a place with such a good location it's typical to play less than necessary attention to the quality of the restaurant itself. The food was average, service good, price quite high for what it is.

I've been coming here since I was born. 21 years later, and it's still my favourite restaurant. Great staff run by a friendly family. Excellent view and service. And the food has always been great; highlights include the chicken satays, moo kati, spring rolls, bazil beef/chicken and drunken noodles.

Had lunch for two was very quiet. Pandan chicken entree had raw meat in it! Green curry lamb and lemongrass chi ken mains both tasted like same sloppy sauce out of a jar just a different colour. Absolutely woeful have never had such a bad Thai meal except maybe in a food court. Way too pricey as well.

My family and I visited Thai Orchid for dinner whilst staying in Auckland. There were 8 in our party plus two babies. Service was good and they provided high chairs for the babies. We had a variety of dishes both traditional Thai and Thai fish fusion. The bill came to 450aud of which about 100 was for drinks. The bill... More
