My friend went to get take out from here. They gave her the wrong bag of food she took it not reliseing. Got home then had to turn around and bring it back. They took the food from her and gave it to the Wright...person later!! So she was able to leave the store with the food and then they still gave it to someone. This is so unsanitary not to mention covid. I don't think i will be getting takw out her anymore.More

Good quality for the price. Lunches 9-15$. Recommend Orchid special lunch (California and salmon, tuna, and white fish nigiri piece and 2 sashimi pieces tuna, salmon, white fish). 13$, always fresh, pieces are standard in size, not thin pieces because of the “special” Lunch Bhun...tit (grilled pork pieces, egg roll, veggies, rice noodles and special sauce), 12$. Massaman peanut curry with rice and egg roll 9$. Thai fried rice (chicken and various veggies, lightly fried with little grease), lunch 9$. Dinner a few bucks more for good size portions. Good service for both dine in and take out. Solid bar. Very consistent quality.More

My husband and I stopped for lunch today and ordered off the lunch special menu. For $9, I got Pad Thai with chicken, a salad with ginger dressing, and an egg roll; it was delicious. My husband got “Cashew” with chicken, which was the meat...with an oyster and chili sauce (slightly spicy), carrots, celery, onions, red and green bell peppers and, of course, cashews. It also came with a salad with ginger dressing, an egg roll, and rice — all for $9! We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals. We’ve been to several Asian restaurants in the area and none were anywhere near as good. The service was terrific — quick and friendly. During this COVID 19 pandemic, the restaurant wasn’t full, but they were doing a brisk takeout business while we were there.More

So hungry and so good! We were unsure of whether or not to stop in Auburn on our way back down to mass and decided we would try the other side of the river. This very tight busy and bustling restaurant was enjoyed by all....We enjoyed everything we ordered from the caterpillar roll, spicy Tuna, edamame salad, shrimp pad Thai and Some greasy crab Rangoon’s. As I mentioned the seating was very tight but we got our food very quickly and everyone was very knowledgeable and helpful with the ordering. I will say that the bathrooms were not very clean and the floors were very slippery towards the back hallway. Other than that I will definitely recommend this place and will be back. My favorite place in Lewiston is Boba but this is certainly in the running. Thank youMore

My colleague, Tenant B, determined we would be eating Thai food. I wanted sushi, and with Orchid we were able to compromise. Since I’m eating for two, pricepoint was important but not imperative. All dining needs were met. The chicken pad thai at a 3...was amazing, sushi tasted fresh and the crab rangoon was delicious. I didn’t venture too far away from the common fare since it was my first visit but will go more authentic next trip. Service was perfect—price more than reasonable. Will definitely visit again.More

Frankly I do a lot of takeout as I live nearby and the small ambient is popular and often full. Cuisines are Japanese, Thai and Vietnemese - tho not many choices of the last one. Favorite order: real crabmeat rangoon (deliciously filled pouches lightly deep...fried) and California roll or other types of rolls (lots of possibilities). Parking is on the street but there is a large parking lot 1 block away with $1 hr parking (max $6 per day). Service friendly and professional. Definitely highly recommend...More

Good place, solid service, food is fresh and good, a little pricey. Decor is simple, not too formal. Enjoyed sashimi dinner, spicy salmon sushi, 2 dumpling soups, a couple of appetizers (crab rangoon, egg rolls), 60 some dollars plus tip.

We have eaten here several times and have liked everything we have tried. Very good flavor. The sushi here is very good too. We love the red dragon.

Orchid allows the customer to add proteins of choice to a number of rice, noodle and stir fry main dishes. The customer can also chose the amount of heat they would like in their dish. 1 being mild, 4 being spicy. The appetizers are great,...too.More

Daughter and I were in town to visit Bates College and we really enjoyed this restaurant. The satay was first rate. There were a lot of other customers for a Tuesday evening. The waitress was very attentive and we were not rushed.
