About Thai Orchid
What a great experience we had at this fantastic restaurant. The food was superb and my son's Thai partner said was as good as home cooked. Staff cleaned every inch of each table after diners left so no need to worry about Covid which made for a relaxing experience. I used to visit this restaurant a lot when I worked in Glasgow but food and staff service is so much better now as have not been for a few years. Would recommend this restaurant for great food and value for money. We were at Chaopryha recently and that was a poor but expensive imitation of the food here.
Quality of the food was superb
There were nine of us. We all had different dishes, all were excellent. Staff were friendly and attentive. All of us are looking forward to returning.
Welcoming city centre Thai restaurant

Thai tapas lunches & relaxing evening meals
The restaurant chefs use their skills to prepare a whole host of classic and contemporary dishes as well as a Thai take on tapas dining with items like the Thai pu-ra (deep fried battered vegetables with a sweet chilli sauce); glass noodle salad (vermicelli noodle salad with seafood, mince, chicken, shallots, coriander, spring onions and a chilli lime dressing); and the popular pork spare ribs.
Be sure to sample some of Thai Orchid’s signature dishes, such as the burning chicken volcano (pieces of fillet of chicken, stir fried with vegetables in a sweet chilli sauce and then ‘lit up like a volcano’); the duck tamarind (chargrilled duck breast topped with a caramelised tamarind sauces and served on a bed of greens); and the chu chee prawns (king prawns prepared with curry paste, sweet basil, coconut milk and garnished with shredded lime leaves).
