Forget about it! Although the food here is very very good, you can't depend on the restaurant being open. For the second time, I've gone to the restaurant and found it closed when it was supposedly to be open. I'm not sure what is going on but I have heard the same complaint from other people who went there for... More

Came in for a different type of lunch, I was tired of Chinese food. Thai is very light and with fresh veggies and herbs. Don't worry, the heat can be adjusted to the diner, from no heat to Thai hot. For lunch they have a good selections of entrees. Also on the menu was the typical Pad Thai. I just... More

Tried to go for dinner. The open sign was lit. The sign on the door was turned to "Yes we're open", but door was locked and no evidence of anyone inside.

Tonight I was in mood for Thai and since I never been to this place, I decided to go out with a friend. The place is simple a little dated, the traffic was low for early dinner time and the service slow to get started. The menu small which can be managed and well controlled in the kitchen. The food...

I have eaten here many times and this is one of my favorite local Thai restaurants. The service is always good and the food is even better! Sometimes, there are cultural events that happen there on the weekends or at night, featuring traditional dancing and more.

This is the first time I have been here and probably only the second time I have had Thai food but I confess, it is different but I enjoyed it. I ordered the Larb Gai- kind of a spicy hot chicken salad with some salad. The chef actually came out an asked if I wanted it mild, medium, hot, or... More

I work on Old Forrest Rd. and this is very close to the office. Quite a few colleagues know Thai 99, but I think that most of those dishes are wear imitations (except the yellow curry) compared to Blue Orchid. I recommend the Larb Gai, and Tom Yum Goong and Penang Curry...and Singha Beer, too. Family owned and they are... More

The building is not much to look at, and the interior is basic, but the food is excellent and the service is great! We ordered the Thai Deluxe starter which includes spring rolls, garden rolls and coconut shrimp. The rolls and dipping sauce were delicious. The shrimp had good flavor, but was maybe a tad over done. For meals we... More

This is based on all visits after our first. Needless to say, our first visit was not pleasant. Food was excellent but the service was abysmal. We had decided not to ever go again and figured that another eatery would bite the dust. The restaurant was open a few more months so we decided to give it another shot. Are... More
