Love the Thai food here, you can tell it's quality because there hot sauses are full of flavour instead of just burning hot. Best dish is there Flaming Duck!

Very cosy inside, good seating arrangements. Food is very reasonably priced and good value, its always tasted good. Staff are always friendly, been here umpteen times with absolutely NO reason to complain. No parking, but then again where does in Falmouth. I say give it a go.

My favourite thing about thai orchid is how beautiful it is inside, adorned with lanterns and cushions. The food is pretty good, too, although definitely not one for someone who cannot handle spice. The wait staff are also extremely nice and attentive. In particular is a lady who I think is from Ireland, who remembered us from before and was... More

My partner and I visited a couple of months ago with two of our friends and had such a lovely time. The atmosphere was cosy, and the whole restaurant was beautifully lit. Our waitress was a very lovely Irish girl who was very attentive while respecting our space. She was patient despite us asking her a lot of questions about... More

We visited as it was a very rainy day and we wanted somewhere near to our hotel. As we love Thai food we decided to give it a try. It's VERY dark in this place with some tea lights and fairy lights providing ambience and all tables are quite private little nooks and crannies. It's maybe a little too dark... More

This restaurant has been around in several guises for a long time, and this version is good, the decor is unusual and provides a nice feel to the place. Staff are friendly and helpful. Food is typical Thai English with a fairly big menu, portions are large and tasty. Always seems to be pretty full at weekends so booking is... More

Little piece of Thailand in Cornwall. Everything from the cosy "Aladdins cave " decor to the lovely service and delicious food was a pleasure. We went for the veggie set menu which was amazing value for money- huge portions of delicious and authentic Thai food. Defiantly would recommend -have eaten Thai all over and this definitely rates one of the... More
