Very nice overall. Food is excellent and leans toward Authentic. Not quite but very close and probably suits the American pallet better. Good variety and very willing to customize any selection. Early evening we like before the Dinner crowd but service and friendliness are always good.

Best food I have ever had. The food was tasty, presented fantastic. Very fresh and perfect portion. Price was fair. Location was central. They don't deliver in Old town which is dissapointing. One of the better restaurants though

Thai Orchid serves decent Thai food in a clean and reasonably pleasant atmosphere. The service is good, but not much about this restaurant is exceptional. It is reliable and steady. The Pad Thai is fine, but again, not exceptional. The vegetables are not over-cooked, and the sauces are acceptable. I do wish they would do away with the television sets,... More
