The portions are small and high-ish price for thai food. The panang curry was ok. The chicken was rubbery so probably frozen before!

Not the best of restaurants we are at and although cheap you can find cheaper, but food was still good and it's in a good location in Central Chaweng not far from Baan Chaweng beach resort

We popped in for a family meal after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. We were looking for a child friendly atmosphere and good Thai food. We got both and more.
The Orchid is a wonderful little venue. The staff were immediately attentive and made us feel at home. We ordered basic Thai fare, Tom Yum Kung soup for a starter and Penang curry. Can I just say that both were delicious, my mouth is watering just thinking about it. My son was happy with his spaghetti bolognese, although he made sure to advise me.. mine was way better!.(Charmer!)
As soon as we left we knew we would return before the end of our holiday. The proprietor was an added bonus, he gave tips on child friendly activities and was an absolute font of knowledge.
If you are looking for good vibes and great food in Chaweng, trust me...this is the one.

Love the fact that they provide an orchid with every food you order. I do not know how many orchids they have to kill everyday for that. :) The food is great and the price is very reasonable. They have like a one page full of veg dishes which is very convenient for vegetarians who want to experiment. For omnivores the sea fishes and pork dishes are amazing. They are quick to serve and we ended up eating here more than 3 times during our stay. Strongly recommended.

Stopped in randomly having read no reviews on our honeymoon in Koh Samui. Best Thai food we've had while here, and probably the least expensive. Had Penang Curry and Cashew chicken. Also Tom yum soup with prawns, delicious. It's the only place we're going to repeat on our trip.
