“Very, very nice food :)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2011

I often eat here (mostly takeaway) when I'm on the Sunny Coast. The food is always great, I have never been disappointed yet. I usually get the beef mussaman or pad Thai, but last night I tried the special red curry lamb & it was very nice. They also do great fish cakes, there are heaps of great choices on the menu. Now if you want to dine in make sure you book, because the place gets crazy busy & don't expect too much from the decor. It can also be a little hard to find as it is only a small doorway on the street, the restaurant itself is upstairs & quite large. If you are in Caloundra I highly recommend Blue Orchid, you won't be disappointed :)

Lovely meal. Nicely balanced but basic menu. Atmosphere is relaxed. Good size servings. Try the Blue Orchid Duck.

“Great service from owner and the food was also great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2011

The owner came out and recommended that we buy a bottle of wine for an additional $3 compared to the cost of 2 glasses of wine. We have been to many restuarants in Europe and considered very good value for money.

“Good find, enjoyed the food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2010

This was a good find - it was our last night in Sunshine Coast and we've had a few average restaurants. This restaurant has got a few awards. The waitresses were waiting at the door, although when we arrived, the tone of their voices was a bit harsh (maybe they didn't even realise it) when they asked "have you got a booking?" We didn't, but they managed to get us a table. The restaurant is small, well laid out, on a friday night it was about 60% full. menu had a good variety of choices. We ordered duck curry, sea food curry, a stir fry and a specialty red lamb. Was a bit surprised that the lamb turned out to be a curry as well but all were tasty. The spring rolls and fish cakes were also quite good. The dishes are fairly pricey, around $20 each or more, and you have to order rice additionally. However it is most important that the dishes are tasty.

“Nice food but a bit expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2008

We enjoyed the food and the staff were friendly. It was a little expensive though.

We were seated very close to a loud, noisy table which really made the night a bid of a headache, however.
