We have come here many times over the last ten years, so I may be a bit jaded, but overall it is a very good restaurant. Seeming odd location, but it is a warm, inviting atmosphere with very sincere staff.

I went to Thai Orchid with my husband tonight and we received the worst service. I ordered the shrimp pad Thai, when my meal came I saw that there were only 3 pieces of shrimp for a $15 meal. I complained to the server & manager who both told me I'd have to pay for the meal and that's how... More

The Thai food here is still quite good but the Pad Thai isn't what it used to be, which was the best in town. The Geang Graree (#28), which is yellow curry with chicken and potatoes is excellent and it has a little bite. We also like (#38) Gai Tad Ned Mamuang. It also has a bite. We put both... More

This restaurant has been there for a good number of years now so...they must be doing something right. The food is good and the selection also. The ambience is not exactly the greatest but considering it is located on one of the most travelled roads in Edmonton, it is functional. Service is friendly, it not a noisy setting so good... More

I have been to Thailand a dozen times and I am planning to retire there. I even speak some Thai. The food here is pretty close to the real deal. I had the seafood salad Yum Talay and the Pad Orchid. A little high on price but good quality and flavour. The coconut ice cream with chocolate was so good... More

Went here for lunch and food wasn't bad but average as far as Thai places I've eaten around North America. However, the coconut rice was among the best I've ever eaten, even compared to Thailand (very sweet so presumably they use a lot of sugar in it). Pad Thai and Thai iced tea on par with most Thai restaurants. I... More

This was a cute little Thai restaurant with extremely over-the-top friendly servers and staff. The food was amazing - I had the shrimp pad thai and the spicy beef something but it was great. I didn't expect much because the restaurant looks dated but the food speaks for itself.

Just back from dinner at this place with the entire family. The food was very good. We ordered chicken pad thai, tofu pad thai, chicken satay, chicken red curry, coconut rice, and spicy tofu curry. The food came out in no time & the customer service was very pleasant. However all the dishes were slightly on the sweeter side and... More

Best original Thai place I've had in the city. The outdoor might not be the best looking, but very welcoming and fresh food. Would and will go again

You can pay more for Thai food in Edmonton but I just love the food here. The Pad Thai is better than all others. The chicken yellow curry with white potatoes is excellent over coconut rice. The Vietnamese fresh spring rools are also great. Again the portions are not large so order at least four dishes for three people. Their... More
