“Less fluff, more stuff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2012

I like that this place is fast and convenient for take-out. But they seem to add a lot of the "fillers" to every dish- sprouts, cabbage, lettuce, the things I don't actually eat, and maybe half of the container is the real good stuff. I don't think this is standard for all Thai places. It's not a garnish, it's becoming a takeover and leaves me with a lot of stuff for the compost. Bummer.

“cost to much”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2011

the service was bad. Should have better deals. I like to see people who are working see if you need anything. Just be a server and bring water and your Utensils with a napkin... not a lot to ask!

I used to visit the Thai Orchid a good bit, but the food quality went way down in the last year. They were typically understaffed at lunch as well.
