I was in town for the Gem and Mineral show in Albuquerque. After a busy Sat show, seven vendors decided to have dinner together and went without a reservation to Orchid Thai. We were seated very quickly and drinks were served while we evaluated the extensive menu. I decided to split a couple items with a friend and ordered the... More

Granted we arrived at the restaurant on a Friday at 6:30, but the wait was 45 minutes. My daughter said we shouldn't wait, but I mistakenly thought it wouldn't be so long. When we were finally seated and ordered the food took another 35 minutes at least to arrive. Our dishes were mediocre at best. We have traveled extensively around... More

This place definitely is worthy of the 4+ star rating! We had the the Panay curry with tofu and the veggie with cashew and tofu. Both were yummy! On a side note, the tofu is fried so if you prefer that it not be, you'd have to request it. When heading back through Albuquerque we'll definitely come back here.

I finally convinced my wife to try an authentic Thai restaurant and Orchid Thai was highly rated in Albuquerque. They offer a great selection of what I would consider authentic Thai cuisine. They have some of your standard Curry and Noodle dishes, but there were many dishes I wasn't familiar with. I ordered the red curry lunch special and my... More

Came here on an afternoon for lunch with a friend. Amazing food! However, service was very slow - it took us 40 minutes to get our food. Lunch time was relatively busy. Not sure about dinner. The restaurant also offers take-out. There are a variety of fried rice dishes, pad thai and noodle dishes. Prices generally are just above $10... More

Had the loveliest evening here, ordered the pineapple chicken...the flavors were fantastic and the presentation was beautiful. Our server was so caring and sweet, we celebrated a friends birthday and they gifted her with some delightful chopsticks. I had a Sapporo, perfect compliment.

Kind of a strange location with weird parking. Once inside a little different also. The food was excellent along with the service. I got the green curry. Mango sticky rice for dessert. Quality and very fresh food. I would definitely eat here again.

Chosen because of good reviews on here. Really busy on Sat night, but we just wanted takeout. Ready on time, great flavours, super hot and a good price. What's not to like!?

Visited this Nob Hill Thai restaurant on our first night in Albuquerque and left quite satisfied. I should say that both my partner who is Thai and I work in his family's Thai restaurant so our standards are quite high. The tom kha gai was served in the traditional Thai manner,the larb gai was nicely prepared with mint leaf garnish... More

Don't judge the food by the outside of the restaraunt. The Thai food was full of flavor and the lunch specials are the best value for the buck. Appetizer, soup, entree, fruit and dessert all for $8.99. They open at 11am so get there early as it is small and fills up past capacity by noon.
