My friends had drunken noodles which were excellent. I had the blue crab with rice, very good except WAY too much rice, like 2x too much. Drinks took very long time to receive each time & they weren't that busy. Been to Thailand several times, not sure I call this real authentic Thai food, but it's very good for here.

Good food at a reasonable price. Nice atmosphere. Not the worlds best Thai food but the best around here. You will not be disappointed.

This is our favorite restaurant in Lincoln. My boyfriend always gets the Crying Tiger (and always loves it) and I tried the Blue Crab Fried Rice (delicious!) We love the atmosphere, the food is always good, and the service is fine. I also recommend Butter Chicken and the yellow curry.

Atmosphere is pleasant. Parking is challenging. I think that if you are looking for a something different this could be a nice option. . Service was not very good on this particular visit and we needed to send one dish back due to lack of sauce.

The Blue Orchid has great Thai food. I recommend the Pad-Thai or the drunken noodles. Friendly staff and convenient location.

We ordered Tom Yum and Mussels for starter. Tom Yum is very disappointing. Not spicy and sour at all. Mussels is good. Mains are blue crab fried rice, beef, orchid... More

We ate at the Blue Orchid last night for a birthday celebration. Our group had a variety of dishes, and everyone seemed pleased with their selection. Our waitress was very pleasant and attentive.

It has been a couple of years since I ate at this restaurant, but remember the experience well. The food was great and the service was exceptional. Price wise it is in the upper moderate to expensive range and that is the primary reason I do not eat here that often. When looking for a nice restaurant to entertain friends... More
