Very good Thai food, typical menu. Service sensitive to allergies, hearing issues, varying ages of family members. We try to stop in whenever we are in town. Quiet, many customers do take-out. I like the decor. They are so happy to please the diner here.

Three friends met for lunch. Place was almost empty by 1:00. We ordered three dishes, pad tai, a curry and a spicy shrimp basil dish. We enjoyed everything . Food came out very quickly.

Quiet, low-key Thai restaurant. Good service,food and prices. Great menu selections. Ordered slightly off-menu (drunken noodles vegetables only, no meat). Was not a problem. Sit-down or take-out.

I stop here for late lunch more than at any other Branford spot; the place is rarely crowded midday and the service is cheerful and quick. I generally have one of the standards, a pad thai or a drunken noodle. This time I saw shrimp with asparagus on the menu, and as it's prime time for local asparagus, I gave... More

I love this restaurant. I often bring friends and clients here; it's a very congenial atmosphere, casual and comfortable, attentive service always -- what else would one expect from the Thai people? Always the best, most charming, most solicitous! :) I prefer the lunch menu; any friends or clients I bring here rave about it and want to return (so... More

I tried this place for lunch while in Branford one day. It was nicely decorated, with orchids on each table (I didn't check to see if they were real!). I ordered one of their lunch specials for $9.50, which included the entree, rice, soup, salad, and two appetizers. My soup came quickly, a chicken coconut soup which was tasty. Then... More

What a delicious lunch!!! They have a delicious, extensive menu. I ordered from the Siam Orchids Special. I loved the vegetables soup (surprise!!!) that came along with my Siam Orchids Duck . It was a flavorful consomme full with great vegetables like corn, scallions, green beans, broccoli, tofu, bok choy, carrots, etc. I thought that it would be a great... More

They have an extensive menu and a very attentive staff. Ambiance is simple but pleasant. Food was delicious and the portions were fantastic for sharing. For starter, we had the Tom Yum Goong soup and Seafood Salad which looked very appetizing and were delicious. For entree, we had the Seafood Madness, Siam Orchids Duck and Duck with Curry Sauce. Everything... More

This place is a find. The welcome is heartfelt and the food is good. They are located on Route 1 in Branford--an inauspicious location, but convenient to the turnpike. There is an extensive menu with classic Thai dishes, and another menu of just specials--equally fared. Though the shrimp-chicken cakes appetizer was a bit bland (with a soggy coating that suggests...
