It was noticeable that you were one waitress done as the waits for drinks and entrees were much longer than normal. Still love your place though. Bring the old wontons back the new prawn ones with cream cheese are not near as nice. Love the duck!!! Love the new decor BTW.

Food was excellent and we were not disappointed with the experience. Maybe not Hot Chocolates greatest hits as background music though 😉

Thank you for a fabulous night the food was wonderfull.Special thanks to the cooks. Everything was perfect. I believe up stairs in the restuarant was fully booked and we had the down stairs fully booked,and you were still doing take aways to the public. How on earth did the cooks manage to feed so many people ?. Thanks also to Jummy your lovely smiling face and happy personality. You all made our 60th wedding anniversary evening really special

Crispy duck was really good but we were charged more than the price on our menu. Chicken was overcooked but the veges in the dish were tasty. We were not offered the dessert menu. We did contact the restaurant to discuss the overcharged meal and have been offered a free drink if we return.

Fantastic cheerful and quick service. Delicious meals which all 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed. Our curries and stir fries were full of meat and a wide variety of vegetables. Would definitely recommend Thai Orchid to others.

On a day of 35 degrees the upstairs room was cool and quiet. The service was friendly and helpful and the food was delicious.

I ordered something too hot for my palette (TOTALLY my fault) and the lovely waiter not only apologized but did not charge me for the spicy dish. Lovely cocktails and mouth watering food paired with a dazzling atmosphere. Would definitely recommend!
