“Great comfy atmosphere - good food”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

This is a very comfy restaurant - big soft settees, soft lights, calm atmosphere. The food is good and reasonably authentic - with the usual mods for western tastes. Certainly the best Thai in the area and service is good. Excellent value. Friendly and efficient service. Excellent atmosphere.

“Probably the best Thai in Cornwall”
Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant is beautifully decorated and dimly lit, so bring a torch if you have problems reading the menu! Good choice of food, again ask for extra chilli on the side if you like it authentic! A worthwhile visit if you are working in Falmouth.

“Cosy, authentic, beautiful food”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

I've been to the Thai Orchid twice in the last 2 weeks, once with a group of friends and once with my family, and I was very impressed both times. When I went with my friends we ordered every starter on the menu (all of which were delicious... especially the ribs) and a main and side course each. My main was absolutely divine (beef in special sauce) and I nicked a bit of my friend's soup which was also really delicious. The staff are always very friendly in there, and the decor is really awesome - rugs and cushions everywhere!!!! Would 100% recommend.

“So good, we visited twice.”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

We had the fixed price banquet on one visit which was fairly good, but on the second visit I has fish in a spicy sauce which was absolutely delicious and my wife has beef in black bean sauce which was also very good. Lovely atmosphere, very good service, and priced about right. If you like Thai, this is the place to go in Falmouth.

“Cosy little place, delicious food...”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

This is a lovely little restaurant in the centre of Falmouth. The decor is amazing - the rugs stapled to every wall, and curtained off areas make it feel cosy and fairly authentic (we thought!).
We've visited a couple of times and the food has always been delicious and has arrived quickly. The cooks seem to be Thai women, and I guess that's why the food is so tasty.

In the holiday season it's worth booking a day or so as not to miss out on getting a table. I'd definitely recommend you visit.
