After moving to Montpelier from New York City, the restaurant selection has been a bit disappointing. The exception, however, has been Royal Orchid. Although a bit pricey, the food is authentic, generally well-prepared, and thankfully not "americanized" (they use no msg, and the sauces are not overly gooey or sweet...)

We keep coming back for the Pad Kee Mao and Poh Pia Tod, but we've also had an excellent sweet and sour soup (can't remember the name...)

Honestly, this Thai food is better than 90% of the neighborhood Thai food you get in NYC. The owners are very friendly (like most Vermonters!) Highly recommended.

For any connoiseur of Thai food, The Royal Orchid is sure to be a disappointment. Their food is usually good. But, not remarkable when compared to excellent Thai restaurants in big city settings.

The food is very expensive for the area, and generally not worth the higher price.

Service is usually a tad slow - but friendly.

The atmosphere is kind of blah; certainly not fancy but not casual either. Just okay.

If you're looking for great Thai food you won't find it here. Passable Thai food, yes, but not excellent.
