We had the Basil Garden, crispy tofu appetizer and sweet rice and mango for dessert. The food was decent. Would have liked more basil in the entree. The appetizer was unique, but seemed to lack flavor. The sweet sticky rice was overly salty and not nearly as good as what I've had in other Thai restaurants. However, everything was acceptable,...

My wife just recently did a 3 week trip to Thailand and she said this place is the real deal. The prices are good and the portions are huge. We usually order a soup a 2 entrees and always leave with leftovers. They are always busy so be patient, it's worth it.

Definitley it was good. The thing is, we were 5 dads, 5 kids. If I say We ordered A LOT of food, I'd be short. We ordered one apetizer and one main course for each. It arrived A TON of food. It was enough to feed a battalion of 20 hungry soldiers coming back from the enemy lines (no kidding).... More

We stopped into Orchid's in Lake Tahoe for an early dinner. We were pleasantly surprised by their extensive menu of Thai food. We ordered 4 different dishes and each one was excellent. I ordered a Pumpkin Curry dish with shrimp. I asked the waitress for moderate spice (red curry) and that's exactly what I got. Great food, great service!

Best Thai food I've had anywhere! Place was VERY busy...we took this as a good sign and we were right. Service was spot on too...well worth a visit.

While in Tahoe for a week ate at Orchids three time, each better than before! The staff is great, the food authentic and very tasty and the selection is just perfect! Voiced to our waitress that this place is probably one of the better places in town as it really is! Make sure to try it while in Tahoe!

Upon entering the restaurant, you are cordially greeted and lead promptly to your table. It is nicely appointed with a pretty aquarium. The server was prompt and friendly. The menu offers many choice that are very tasty and overall excellent. It is a restaurant that we would look forward to returning.

I've been here more times than I can count...for dinner and lunch. It's an absolutely fabulous place! The service is great and the food is even better. My wife and I usually get the same two dishes although we have mixed it up a bit here and there. Our favorites are Penag Curry and the Thai Basil Noodles (Pad Kee... More

The service was considerate and prompt. There is a lot of seating on the inside and they offer take-out as well! I ordered the veggie pad thai with tofu and there was SO much food. We ordered two entrees, rice, and an appetizer and it came out in the mid-$30s - definitely reasonable!
