Been here twice. First for the a la carte dinner with a Thai friend and my kids which we all enjoyed and yesterday with my family for Mother's Day lunch - we had the Sunday buffet.
The a la carte menu is a little pricey but go for the Sunday lunch buffet which is very reasonably priced! Good spread of variety and very authentic Thai taste - some even better than my Thai friends' home cookings!! I was very surprised how good the buffet is and the taste feels like eating in Thailand, with the decor and atmosphere to support it. Nice Thai furniture without being tacky and quite elegant-ish in Thai style.
The service is excellent. Polite, friendly, helpful and smiles all round. Back to buffet foods, I especially love the hotness of the som tam (papaya salad). It's just like how me and my Thai friends would make. I saw a few of Thai people eating there too so they must have approved. And the dessert! Excellent varieties!! Very nice!!! As many choices for desserts as those of the buffet itself and none doesn't taste good!
We enjoyed our meal yesterday very much and my 7 year old son has even said today that he really likes it and wants to eat there again soon! I have to agree with him on that!!
I'd definitely recommend Thai Orchid and I'll be back very soon too. The place is suitable for any occasion from romantic to family meals.
