“Lovely Food”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

We went here over the x mas period with work - We had the buffet menu, food is great but could maybe accommodate for when they have bigger parties booked in (i.e make the selection a bit bigger) as we had to que for quite a while. Other than that cant wait to go back again :)

“Fabulous Food”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

After 15 Years I took the oportunity to visit this fine restaurant with a couple of colleagues for our evening meal. It was an experience which has stood the test of time since my last visit. The quality of the food was first class, service was first clas and the staff equally friendly. The restuarant was clean and airy and it is very clear the staff enjoy what they are doing. I will certainly return again and not leave it so long before I do so..

“Lunchtime buffet extravaganza”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Lunchtime buffet with a number of work colleagues. The all you can eat buffet is worthy of mention as it is not a 'sell you short' version of the usual Thai Orchid menu. I have eaten here a number of times over the past years and always very much enjoyed the food.
The buffet at lunchtime included a number of very excellent dishes, from soup assorted starters, through rice and noodles to a number of dishes, both for carnivores and vegetables!
For those who know the formidable HGV sweet trolley, a number of the deserts were also available with the buffet, special mention to the chocolate/crunchy thing, as long as you have a sweet tooth.
Staff are quiet and efficient, buffet is constantly replenished, atmosphere and surroundings pleasant. I like it and may go back. The competition is fierce however with at least two other Thai restaurants, also very good, within a hundred yards down parson street.

“Wonderful birthday meal”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

We celebrated my wifes birthday with an evening meal here on Friday 16th November; the first day of a three day stay in Banbury.
It was exactly like being transformed into Thailand - the restaurant was charming with beautiful decor - timber carved tables and chairs, exotic flowers and plants covered the walls and a spectacular water feature complete with amazing carp fish swimming around.
We chose the 'Banquet Meal for Two' and would comment that the quality of food on all four courses was exceptionally good and authentic (after a great selection of starter and main courses we still managed to select from the vast array of options on the sweet trolley).
This restaurant is highly recommended for a wonderful eating experience and if we come to Banbury again we will head for the Thai Orchid again.
