Very decent Thai restaurant. Very friendly staff.
THe restaurant is rather small so during the day you can drop in, but in the evening you need a reservation.

Value for money

We arrived not having made a reservation and were shown to a table for 2. It was a Monday so we didn't think it would be a problem to get a table as we like to eat early. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and the tables were well laid out.

We ordered a couple of small beers and perused the menu. The menu is in Thai and Spanish but they do have a paper menu in English as we saw people at another table reading it. The mixed appetisers were very tasty, beautifully presented and enough as a starter for the two of us. Our main courses were "chicken green thai curry with vegetables" and "langostines in a red thai creamy sauce accompanied by a bowl of jasmine rice to share.

All in all, a great supper with lots of flavour. We asked for the dishes to have more piquancy than is normal for Spain and were not disappointed.

Really good atmosphere. The chicken with basil and vegetable was excellent and the wine was reasonably priced. Staff was really friendly and spoke good English, which was really helpful. Would recommend!

We were craving some change to tapas and as Thai food is an all time favourite for us and the Thai Orchid seemed to be the best Thai place in Madrid based on reviews, this was an easy pick. We had to walk quite a lot to find it and I was a bit frustrated when the menu was only in Spanish but as we got a translation in order to be able to order, it was a very delicious lunch. I had some very yummy chicken sticks with peanut sauce as a starter and the most delightful green curry with prawns as a main. The boyfriend went for fried prawn with sweet and sour sauce and red chicken curry and also enjoyed his meal. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Price was decent. I can highly recommend this place as a change for tapas while in Madrid!

Extremely good authentic food. Excellent service too. Will gladly return to sample the rest of the menu. 9/10 from our table if three travellers.
