Went down to try the buffet with Indian and Thai starters and mains. Topped up regularly during meal.
Very good value for £9.95 each and drinks were reasonable. One of our party ordered off the menu and was very impressed with an Indian dish he had never seen before.
Plan to explore this menu again.
Quite impressed on first visit.

Just been to the Thai Orchid and was very pleased with the thai food.
This was a meal out with my family and can say the thai food was excellent and has the advantage of being cooked by a thai chef, this is as close to authentic thai cooking as it gets.
Nicely decorated with friendly helpfull Staff made for a very plesent and enjoyable everning.
I highly recommend the Buffett.
Will be back for more next time I am in Coventry.

Like the previous reviewer, we are always on the lookout for good places to eat in Coventry (quite a hard task!).

We hadn't been to the Blue Orchid for some time but a friend who was visiting from out of town said she fancied Thai, so we went there and were very glad we did.

The service was magnificent - polite, attentive, respectful, happy and friendly. The food quality and presentation was excellent. Serving of the wine was really classy. Lots of attention to detail and nice ambience.

There is also quite a big free car park, a real plus for a city centre establishment.

We will be back!

We found about this restaurant through some good friends of ours. It's situated at the Butts just alongside the Ramada hotel in Coventry.

We're always on the lookout for good restaurants in Coventry, so were really pleased to have found this place. It serves Thai and Asian cuisine. There's lots of choice on the mouth watering menu. The chicken satay starter is delicious. The portion sizes are generous and prices very reasonable. The service is friendly and attentive, and we enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere.

They have have Singha and Cobra beer on draft, and a good selection of reasonably priced wines.

We enjoyed our impromptu visit and will definitely go back again soon.

Ordered a take away for Thai food on a Friday night. The food was so oily that when flattening a ONE piece of tofu with a folk, about 3teaspoons of oil come out. Food tasted bland and was average. Will never order from here again, a complete and utter waste of £20.

I am very sorry to hear about your takeaway. I just hoped you would have calked us to let us know. Usually takeaways are not the standard as it is when eating in due to the fact it is concealed in a container for a while. And with tofu it tends to soak up any liquid it finds. But I am surprised you say it was drained in oil.i believe you rare referring to the gravy. But we would like you to return and try us put again. I will make sure it is if a higher quality. Thanks
