I came here just over a year ago and had a great meal with a groupon voucher. Bought an even better groupon voucher and surprised that it was valid every day. We came on a Friday night to a busy restaurant. It's clear that they do lots of business through groupon as there are signs up as you go in... More

It was my birthday and booked for a table of 12 but 10 turned up, however it still was a good show. The reason why I am giving it 5/5 because of the overall experience. The guy was very friendly on the phone, told him it was my birthday and he said we will do a concession for you, they... More

We visited Thai Orchid last night having purchased a Groupon deal before Christmas and realised earlier this week that we only had a few days to visit. Bad timing really as we're doing dry January and therefore couldn't enjoy a nice bottle of Chang with our meal :-( Nevertheless, we were looking forward to a Thai meal, having become somewhat...

Firstly we couldn't find this place. Currently there is scaffolding covering the front of the building so you can't see the signs!!! When we finally got in the decor etc is very strange. Especially the dartboard hanging on the wall on top of the pictures on the wall. Quirky but strangely appealing to us anyway. We had mixed veggie starter... More

We were staying nearby. We walked up London Road looking for somewhere to eat, and were almost overwhelmed by the choice. We went in the Orchid almost at random, but we were extremely pleased with our choice. We went for one of the set meals. All the food was excellent and the proprietor was lovely. An oldish Thai bloke, both... More

Went to this fab restaurant on a Groupon voucher for a 4 course meal each and drink. Excellent value for money at £27 in total. Food excellent and service, will definitely be going again.

Went last night and was not disappointed. We enjoyed every mouthful of every course. They were very attentive and brought iced water without being asked, then topped it up when they noticed our glasses were low. Little things mean a lot. Excellent service all round. Well done Orchid.

Went on a Friday at 7.30pm, like others have said, it's not much to look at from the outside, and even inside the decor is quite dated, but they're the only real criticisms I have of this lovely place. Used a Groupon voucher (£27 for two of us, four courses and a drink each). First course, mixed starter which was... More

Been here a few times, used groupon vouchers. This time was for a 4 course meal. The mixed starters are all great, both types of soup yummy and main courses authentic, flavoursome. Can`t fault the food at all. Decor pretty ancient still but small price to pay.

Thank gibson
