The view over the harbour from here is really lovely. The food was nice and reasonably priced. My only criticism is that the curries are precooked so they are unable to deal with requests for any special diets (I can't eat sweet peppers so had a very limited choice)

Pad thai, lamb curry, seafood hot plate, fried rice all came on preheated plates and tasted individual and delicious...no msg here. Low key service with the staff not asking you every 30 seconds if the food is ok...they know its good! A little gem of a restaurant....book as it fills quickly.

I really enjoy Thai food, and the Thai Orchid is, without a doubt, one of the best places in Thanet to enjoy it. The food can be ordered as spicy or as mild as you wish - just speak to Tim, the owner/manager, and it can be cooked just the way you like it. Excellent beers, too.

This was our first visit and will definitely not be our last. The restaurant was very busy but this did not affect the service or food. Reasonable priced food and drink. Starters probable not a good idea as the portions are very generous. I would advise to book in advance as very popolar.

Came with 18 family members for a birthday meal. Don't be put off by the restaurant decor, Tim and his co workers were welcoming and accommodating to food allergies. Food was very nice and good portion sizes

Four of us went here for my twins birthday. Beautiful appetising smell of cooking greeted us on the way in. Restaurant is cosy and appealing. Owner was very friendly with good service skills. Food was absolutely beautiful, only thing was the portions are so big I felt wasteful having to leave some!! Will definitely be returning soon.

Thank Kerrykirk44
