Delicious thai food, great service. We stayed at a nearby hotel and this was some of the best thai food we have ever had. The Shrimp Panang and Tom Kha were both super!

I visited this restaurant during a recent stay at a nearby hotel in San Jose. It was during peak lunch hours so there was a wait, but it was very much understood once we experienced the food and customer service at the restaurant. The waitress (who may have been the owner of the establishment) was extremely friendly, pointing out on... More

We had the opportunity to bring family visiting from out of town to Thai Orchid restaurant in San Jose (at N. 1st St. & Trimble Rd.) for a cozy family dinner. The restaurant is decorated with beautiful wood carvings. From the moment we entered, we were greeted with a cheerful smile and seated promptly. The food is fresh and very... More

I've come here a couple of times when I'm in the area, and am severely impressed each time. The woman (whom I believe is the manager / owner) is genuinely the most friendly, hospitable person I've ever met, particularly in a customer service setting. Judging on service alone, I would recommend all my friends to share in this experience. Food-wise,... More

I've had the chance to eat at the Thai Orchid four or five times now and i have enjoyed everything I've ordered off the menu. One tip: this place is crazy busy at lunchtime (very popular) so try to come a few minutes early to get in.

When we arrived in San Josei, we decided Pad Thai would hit the spot, so we ordered Crispy Spring Rolls, Shrimp Pad Thai, and Chicken Pad Thai. We were NOT disappointed - the sweet dip that came with the Spring Rolls enhanced the tastiness. The Pad Thai was outstanding - we even had some left over, which we took back... More

They had a special appetizer (samosa) of the day that was simply scrumptious. We also had Pad Thai that was very authentic tasting and full of flavor. The yellow curry with chicken was yummy too. Definitely will go back and often.

It is a very small place. Decor is done well. As soon as you enter, you feel like you are in a totally different world. They have nice windows through which you can still be connected to the outside world. That said, food was really good. I had tom yum soup, stir fried veggies and coconut rice. It was sumptuous...

Lots of great food. Had the Pad Thai. Good spice, fresh ingredients. Not much rush at dinner, so it's a good time to visit.

This is a slightly better than average Thai restaurant - all the standard flavors, but all available with crab, shrimp, or 'mixed seafood' that doesn't include cod! The crab house rice is great, but ask for the basil rice with crab (not technically on menu) for a little different spin. Fast service, not particularly friendly at lunch with the crush... More
