I have eaten lunch on two different occasions at Orchid Thai, the first time with a colleague and the second time by myself. Both times the service was excellent- friendly and attentive waiter. For a sit-down restaurant, the food came out FAST, which is much appreciated during an hour lunch break. I have now had the lemongrass beef and pad... More

Went to the restaurant on a Wednesday evening with a group about an hour before closing, very few other folks inside. With a group, there was a pretty broad spectrum of food ordered. I found my Potstickers to be rather bland; not bad, just sort of tasteless. People really liked their #1 fried eggrolls; they were out of the #2... More

Visiting Montpelier to tour the Capitol and discovered Thai cuisine at the Royal Orchid and very happy I did. Service was a excellent. Lunch served fast and thoroughly enjoyed the Thai flavors I've come to enjoy. My server helped me choose between three noodle dishes. The choice: the Pad Kee Mao with wide rice noodles, chili, broccoli, basil and medium-hot... More

My wife and I stopped here for dinner. We shared spring rolls which were good. She had the crispy rice salad (Yam Khao Tod) while I went with Yam Ma Kheur Yao (eggplant-chicken-shrimp salad). Both were very good but a bit salty.

Service was fast, food was delicious. However, I wanted hot and the Red Curry was very mild. If you like hot, make sure to ask for HOT, like you mean it.

Royal Orchid has been a mainstay in Montpelier for many years. The Pad Thai is always good as is the Pad Khee Mao. If you ever have room for dessert, the black sticky rice is worth trying. Nice atmosphere for a lunch with friends or colleagues.

Service was good; menu varied with traditional Thai and specialties. We had the Spicy Fish (red snapper) and Pad Thai...both were excellent. Ask for the "spice rack" with four delicious condiments. Desserts seem home made...we shared the black sticky rice with Thai custard...awesome!
