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

Beautiful location on Henley Square overlooking the beach. Our food was terrific and the service was good on a very busy Friday night. We'll be back.

On a summer's evening there is nothing better than eating by the sea. The food was very tasty and very quick. Seats are available on the veranda which gives great views.

Meat and 'sauces' (rice too) were pre cooked. Order served in 5 minutes. Do not understand why they are busy. Food is very average.Curry sauces 'sludge'. Bright green colouring. No authentic Thai flavours. Can do better at home for quarter of the price charged. Will not bother again.

We were welcomed by several delightful staff. The food was nicely cooked. We had a ginger chicken curry dish, a vegetarian pad thai, and seafood laksa. Despite the presence of a large group having a Christmas get together, our service was just right.

Ordered 6 main courses ranging from lamb, prawn, chicken, beef and one noodle dish. 5 out of 6 came out in what appeared and tasted like the same creamy coconut sauce, what a waste of perfectly good protein! Very disappointing
