Food was fantastic. Service was great.

The food was hot, fresh and so yummy. I had the chicken red curry and it was so good. The spring rolls were wonderful. My husband had the fishermans soup and loved it.

We visit Medicine Hat on a regular basis and will definitely be back. I have to try the other curries.

My only issue was that they need a better sign as it was a bit hard to find but spending the time to find it was worth it.

I'd like to start this review by saying the food is very good for the most part. No complaints in that department. Although presentation could be better at times, quality has never been directly affected.


The catch however comes when you set foot inside. Atmosphere is to be desired and service was incredibly slow.. They have little children running around while an older sort of hard faced gentleman lurks in the background. Presumably the owner. The other owner(his wife) is very nice and does her best to keep things running efficiently. While children are great, not everyone wants that on a special night out after a long work week. The male owner himself seems to set the pace for the rest of the staff with his attitude and demeanor. He's a rusty cog in an otherwise smooth working gear set. Because of all this the staff seemed preoccupied which slowed service immensely.

This is not my only experience at the Thai Orchid. It's one of many with both family and friends. Will I return... That is to be determined.

Thank-you for taking the time to review our restaurant. I would like to respond by saying that running a restaurant is extremely time-consuming, stressful at times, but rewarding nonetheless. Our lives pretty much revolves around this business. We enjoy it immensely! Our children are part of the package. Yes, they may run around sometimes (we have four!) but the majority of the time, it is when they are coming down from their playroom upstairs to go home (around 8 pm), or my littlest one (2 years old) escapes from their room upstairs :) We do not like it when they are running around, but we do our best with our children. They have all grown up in this industry and we are so very lucky to be able to have this restaurant and at the same time have our children with us. Imagine never seeing your children if you had to work 13 hour days, 6 days a week! We are so fortunate to have many clientele who understand and appreciate what we do, and do it alongside our children! It is hard enough these days to juggle a business with children in the picture. That said, our restaurant is CHILD friendly. We do our absolute best with what we have. Thank-you!

We have dined at the Thai Orchid Room since it opened and have never been disappointed. Food is made from scratch and always great quality. Good variety on the menu. We take friends and clients here and the also agree it is a wonderful experience. We are seniors and extremely picky about the food we eat and how well it is prepared. Staff is well trained and offer exceptional service. When someone says "if it is not right we will make it right" - well they may be willing to do so here, but they have never had to! There is a good reason it ranks #1 in Medicine Hat!
