Consistently great food and service, nice ambiance, just the right touch of elegance, piano bar, our favorite Thai in Central Ohio. They have Chinese and Thai menu items, but we love the Thai here so we stick with them. The seafood specialties are wonderful. Definitely worth the trip.

There was 7 people in our party. We arrived at 530p. There was one other table of people in the restaurant about 5 people. We left the restaurant at 745p not by our own choice. We ordered a few spring rolls as appetizers, they tasted amazing. Unfortunately our vegetarian friend was not given the veggie version. Thank goodness they cut... More

I don't know why I even order Pad Thai anywhere else, I'm always disappointed. Thai orchid has the best ever. I always get the soup with lemongrass and shrimp too (Tom goong?) I love that they have a drive up take out window too!

Excellent food and service! Try the Pad Thai, the Thai Orchid Chicken, the Chicken Cashew, the Spring Rolls, and the Tom Yum soup (spicy). Nice atmosphere as well!

Thai Orchid was once one of the truly great restaurants in the Columbus area. Unfortunately the original owner has passed away, and the quality of food has declined precipitously. Pad Thai left me unfulfilled and, more importantly, ill for a couple of days afterward. Can't recommend.

Went here on a Friday night with friends. The restaurant was surprisingly empty. The server was very friendly and pleasant --- a big plus. The Thai green curry with duck was very tasty, although the duck itself was a little bit rubbery. The steamed dumplings were below average, but this could have been because we had recently returned from Shanghai,... More

I have been here and to the original one several times. The food is very good and the portions are great. The atmosphere is very calming and sometime they have a live pianist. Overall I would suggest this place to anyone.

Really enjoyed the food at Thai Orchid, in Powell, Ohio. Nice atmosphere. Service was also, for the most part, excellent. I was only there the one time.

This location was custom built in a Thai style for this restaurant - a big upgrade from their strip mall beginnings. There is a large bar area and live piano music on the weekends. The good was good with a large selection on the menu. Servers in traditional clothing and a calming fountain in the entry help to make this... More

I had lunch her recently. The service was very friendly and prompt. I had the Tom Yum which was very good with great flavors. I then had the shrimp Pad Thai for my entree and it was really so-so. It had about 2 shrimp in it and the noodles were just limp and flavorless. It was really disappointing. I was... More
