“Almost like going to Thailand”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

3 of us visited the Royal Orchid. For Appetizers we had Mee Krob, Tod Mun Pla, and Giew Tod. They were all excellent. Perfect way to start a meal. For dinner we ordered: Pad Priew Wan with beef, Kaeng Kha-Ree with chicken (Yellow Curry) Medium, Khao Pad Sapparod and Pad Thai. We usually order meals this way, then we all share, so it gives us a chance to try multiple things. As usual it was all perfect. The spices, the taste all excellent. I couldn't find anything bad to say about the food or place. If you want authentic Thai Food this is the place to go. Tasting this food, brought me back to the time I spent in Thailand. You have got to try it.

“Thai master in Montpelier”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

The Royal Orchid is a cozy little Thai restaurant just off State Street in Montpelier. The decor is utterly charming, and the authentic Thai cuisine very good. I can only remember the name of one of the various dishes my friends and I ordered (Pad Thai), but there was enough to share, and we really enjoyed the different tastes, textures, and ingredients. The price wasn't bad either. I had an appetizer, main dish, and beverage for $21.00. A very good choice, even on a budget. This is a VERY romantic place, so bring your sweetie and plan to make it a leisurely dinner.

“LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

Our favorite local spot in Montepelier! Everyone in the family loves this place, whether to sit and enjoy the atmosphere or to call and order take out. Their yellow curry is generous enough for two meals

“Good, not quite as good as I was expecting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

People kind of oversold this place, so maybe the problem was too high of expectations. Solid Thai, but not the best I've ever had. Service was very professional and timely, but not exactly warm and welcoming.

“Great variety”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

For authentic Thai cuisine. Even for the less adventurous eater, the menu has a range of dishes from mild to very spicy. Definitely worth a visit.
