Restaurant Orkidé is a real classic Thai, serving traditional Thai food with flair and finesse. If you already have visited Thailand you will recognize the flavors and if you still have not been there you will certainly have a reason to go there! The restaurant, which opened back in 1992, is one of the first Thai restaurants of Södermalm. Despite being open for many years the restaurant is in the forefront and was crowned Europe’s best Thai restaurant in the Asian Curry Awards in London in 2012. Restaurant Orkidé is easy to find, it is located directly adjacent to Söderhallarna at Medborgarplatsen.

The food is very nice, but it took a lot of time, about an hour to come, also, hard to get someone to take our orders

We ended up visiting twice in a week just for the food. It is delicious! Service at both visits was quite quick and we got seated within minutes. Attentive staff and, as said, delicious food that came quickly. Not the cheapest place to eat, but...More

This is a restaurant that would last about 6 months in Los Angeles or New York. The food for our party of five ranged from disappointing to unremarkable, but was ten times better than the service. Our waitress — with the emphasis on wait —...More

Found this restaurant when walking around Södermalm. The restaurant wasn’t very busy, had TOM kha gai soup for appetiser and it was nicely flavoured, the red curry was well spiced and with jasmine rice. Also had a singha beer. All in all, nice food.More

This is probably typical thai restaurant in scandinavia. The food was deliberately cooked to cater the local taste which is not too spicy, not too brave, just plain. It is just annoying to me. Why bother going to try thai meal if you don’t want...More

The food was cooked and presented well. Excellent service but a very limited menu. Be aware as I am finding out a lot of places in Stockholm only accept credit cards and not cash.

We went for a meal before going to the cinema. The food is really nice and tasteful. The restaurant itself is cosy and welcoming and the staff is friendly. A nice start for an evening out.

Nice and cozy environment. Unfortunately the type of Thai-food that you could buy for half the price in an average food truck. Vegetarian options were there but boring.
