My husband and I make Saturday night date dinners a weekly event at Thai Orchid. The menu is varied, and their chefs are brilliant! My husband has a gluten allergy and I have a life-threatening allergy to nuts. The servers are diligent to make sure allergies and food preferences are recorded and the kitchen notified. The food is fresh, and delicious! It is spiced according to your taste preference, so there are no worries that food is too spicy or not acceptable. The restaurant owners Ken and Sou are friendly and professional. They make sure your dining experience is exactly what you want. They have a wonderful selection of wines, beer, and a full bar. There is also a beautiful selection of loose tea that compliments every meal. The menu is amazing! The chefs are skilled at making varied dishes that take the customer on a virtual trip to Thailand. There isn't one selection that we would advise against. The food is brilliant, and Thai Orchid is a treat!

The owners of this restaurant used to have a Thai restaurant in Bow Island. The restaurant wasn't much to look at but the food was exceptiona and set the standard for Thai restaurants to measure up to. We would drive from Lethbridge just for dinner, and dream about the flavours until our next trip.

This restaurant is located in a strip mall, and doesn't look like much until you step inside. It really is lovely, with a great atmosphere. The owners try hard, and Ken is usually at the door with a warm greeting. The food is still good, but doesn't measure up to their former restaurant. The flavours are nice, but the portions are smaller, and not as fresh. We still visit the restaurant when we are in Medicine Hat, but wouldn't make a special trip just for dinner. Having said that, it is still the best Thai restaurant we have been to. The Spring Rolls are great, the Chicken Coconut Milk Soup (Tom Kha Gai) is the best I've had, and I crave their Red Curry. Their Pad Thai has great flavour, but sometimes the noodles stick to each other, and the freshness isn't always there. Try their Coconut Rice - it is a nice change from the Jasmine Rice, but the servings are small, so you might want two.

I have ate at the thai orchid room so many times and not once have i ever been disappointed. The food there is extremelely delicious and there is not one thing on the menu i dislike. I recently moved to calgary and have yet to find a thai restaurant that even compares. The staff is very friendly and there are very accomadation to any food allergies or dislikes. The new red curry paste salmon is AMAZING. i encourage everyone to eat there!!

We were staying at Motel 6 and looking for something interesting within walking distance and preferably not a chain. Thai Orchid scored on all counts. We had decided on our order but the owner came by and recommended one of the daily specials which was original and very good.
