Visited the restaurant Dec 2012, beautiful meal, good price and nice clean restaurant. Selection on menu was good, and we enjoyed the prawns on toast, pannang curry and red curry with some special fried rice. Staff friendly :)

Thai food is excellent. Classic seafood, rice and noodle dishes are authentic and not modified for the tourist palette - except on request - which is refreshing. Western steaks not so great although the chips (fries) and pasta was acceptable. Very friendly staff and also good for the kids. Just hand them over and the waitresses and children all enjoy themselves!

Great food. ok service, alot more expensive than green bird but food is just as good. We ate the chicken satay which came out in about 10 mins presentation excellent. Waitress just put it down in front of us and said nothing which is ok but not ideal. Next we had the green curry chicken and clear noddle soup with king prawns which were both lovely, again waitress said nothing. Will go back again for sure, easy to find on Chaweng beach road. If the waitress just looked a little interested this place could be something special.

The street seems to be full of Aussie style bbq and Italian restuarants. most of witch are staffed by Indian looking people. So It was nice to find this small Thai place called the Orchid. The Thai staff made us feel more than welcome and the thai dishes we tried were delicious. Will be back on our next trip.

If you are traveling all the way to Thailand, there is some lovely food to try, but I wouldn't really recommend here.

It's clean, and a nice building... But the food just wasn't up to scratch. The noodles we ate were lacking in flavour and the massaman curry almost tasted a bit lole coconut milk with a dab of yellow curry paste and a few bits of meat/potato dropped in.

It's a shame really because the staff were lovely, great atmosphere and the service was really good!

Thankyou for taking the time to write this review.
Never had anyone say our Pad Thai is tastless or complain about our Massaman curry like you have in this review! Are you sure you eat at the Orchid restaurant & bar on the Chaweng Beach Road?
