“One of my favorites in San Miguel”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Orquidea Thai is one of my "go to" restaurants in San Miguel. Fresh, delicious asian food, wonderful atmosphere, friendly staff and awesome drinks. Don't miss the spring rolls, pad thai, and the amazing cucumber martini. The place is hopping at night when sometimes they have live music or a d.j. Give it a try and tell them I sent you.

“Surprisingly good”
Reviewed January 30, 2013 via mobile

It's as tough to replicate thai food in San Miguel as it is to replicate mexican food in Seattle or Boston. But despite the challenges, their menu is varied, tasty, fresh and organic and unmistakably thai. The service is attentive and they have some excellant mezcales which, surprisingly, go quite well with the burn of 8 alarm bell recipes form a country 8,000 miles from here.

I plan to visit again soon.

“Fantastic food. Fantastic Staff”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

This is one place in town where you can get exceptional food for a moderate price. The owner is super talented as a cook, host, artist, and is very honest. I like the subdued atmosphere because the art, food, etc are highlighted rather than the usual bright pink or orange usual colors you find in Mexican restaurants (which kill my appetite). We love the Pad Thai and the sauces are out of this world. Just can't say enough good stuff about this gem.

“This is not good Thai food”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

Orquidea Restaurant & Bar (Umaran 36, Centro, San Miguel de Allende, Gto., tel. 415-150-7606, cell: 415-100-8845, e-mail: orquideasanmiguel@gmail.com). We went because it had just opened in August 2012 and we wanted to try what their card says is authentic Thai food in San Miguel. We went with friends and sat in the back at a table (away from the bar). Unfortunately there was a loud group of young people drinking in the same area who made it difficult for us to hear each other. We were very disappointed in the food. It turns out the same Asian woman whose food we experienced at Venus Lounge is cooking at Orquidea (and is an owner as well). We shared everything and ordered Vietnamese rolls which were stuffed with lettuce and had no mint, cilantro, vermicelli and had only one tiny shrimp. A peanut sauce was served with it--it was too gloppy. We also ordered dumplings that were fried and served with a sweet sauce. They were okay but tasteless. For our mains, we ordered one baked fish and one salmon. The sauces for both fish were the same and had almost no flavor. All of our criticisms of our meal at Venus are applicable to Orquidea. The service and the servers were fine.

I appreciate your honest opinion, please let us know that you did not like the food at the time of your dining, we will do whatever it takes to accomodate your meal, you said you want real Thai food, but all of the item you ordered are the vietnamese roll and salmon curry which is the fusion menu. I would recommend Tom kha gai, or tom yum, green curry or pad thai. I was sick for a week and was not in the kitchen at the time of your dining. hope to see you again and I hope to be in the kitchen to make you a real Thai food. Please ask for the real Thai chef to cook for you next time you visit, sincerely Rod Molot
