About Thai Orchid
Best Thai Restaurant
Simply beautiful meal and very attentive service. Had to wait 15 minutes for a table but hey, for food like that who cares. Just great Thai food. We had relatives up and they described it as the best Thai food they had tasted. This will now be a regular haunt.
This is an absolutely wonderful restaurant which I would highly recommend.
Service is fantastic with friendly and welcoming staff.
Food is just fantastic filled with flavour and a huge selection.
We are a young couple who have returned to the restaurant several times now.
At first glance you think the dishes are a little expensive, but when they are served you can see why! Great large portions packed with top quality ingredients.
We have taken a doggy bag home twice now as there was loads of food.
If you're looking for something cheaper or are like me and enjoy knowing you got a good deal... The 2 courses for £18 is great. So much choice you can't go wrong.
Definitely go and check this place out!
