“great value dinner”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

This is our second visit and as we were visiting the playhouse, we had planned to take advantage of their brilliant 2 course plus coffee/tea £9.95 offer. However last time we went they were very welcoming and made a point of mentioning the offer, but this time we had to specifically ask for it, as did every other table...they were full and this is obviously in part down to the early diners offer, (it was 6ish) so why the reluctance. (this is the only reason I give it very good and not excellent)

we asked for the set menu as they only left us the full one and there was a definite sniff, but the menu was brought to the table, and it was as before fabulous, this time I had the prawn toast, followed by the green curry and husband had the spring rolls with the penang red curry. We also had an extra dish of Pad Thai, which are the best ever, not a lot of the beancurd but still amazing flavour. Definitely the best Thai food I have ever eaten, absolutely loved it.

Definitely recommend, it was even busier than the last time we were in there and clearly they know how to cook! Just wish they didnt make me feel such a cheapo because I wanted to have the £9.95 dinner!! Funny thing was we ordered a bottle of wine and extra noodles and a dessert because it was such good value.

It wont stop us from going again as this is just so far superior for a pre theatre supper to anything else available. Just brilliant.

“Fantastic food and Friendly service”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

We booked a table for 4 so that we could take our son and his partner when they visited us for the weekend. It was an enjoyable evening, the service was paced just right, we were not rushed nor were we left for a long time. The food was delicious, hot, well presented and mouthwatering, this is the second time we have eaten at the restaurant and not left disappointed. I would definitely eat at this restaurant again. Well done the Thai Orchid.

“Lovely food, just need to work on the service.”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Went for a meal on a busy Saturday night. We arrived just ahead of a big party, of people. This unfortunately meant that we felt forgotten about, with nearly 45mins between starters and mains and things forgotten, like plates! However, the food was delicious and although a little on the pricey side was worth it!

“Good food need to maintain standards”
Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

Off chance booking but was pleasantly surprised. Ordering was a bit of an ordeal but the food was delicious. Service attentive but not intrusive. Will go again but it's at the upper end of the price / quality equation.
