Fast and efficient service. I had the Pad Thai and it was very oily, had no peanuts and no vegetables (I had the vegetarian one). The staff member who settled our bill didn't understand English that well so keep a sharp eye when you go to pay.

From the moment you enter you are mesmorised by the beauty of the decor, the scents of Thai cuisine and the authentic costumes worn by the staff. The portions are decent and wonderfully presented. The choices from sweet trolley are to die for!

Friendly place, we only had a takeaway. It's not the best we ever had, but it was a generous portion and they happily gave us plastic forks and a spare metal tray...we had nothing with us and wanted to eat int he hotel room. Good prices, too.

From the kerb the restaurant looks lovely. There is plenty of parking outside and opposite the venue. When you enter we were greeted by friendly staff who took us to our table at the back. The decor is a bit tired, however it is cosy and you are surrounded by typical teak style wood carvings. The service was quick despite... More

The food is simply amazing, no other way to put it. A real must try. I've moved to Oxford 6 months ago, and I yet have to find a better thai restaurant than this in the area.

Have visited here on special occasions in the past but won't be going back. Food was still good but the staff were unwelcoming and bordering on rude. Left with an overall unpleasant feeling about the whole place, definitely gone down hill, what a shame! Noticed this theme re-occurs in several reviews lately. Not a cheap evening either...

Whether it's a quiet meal for 2, a work gathering or a birthday, the Thai Orchid has never disappointed me! With a fully authentic feel and relaxed atmosphere with friendly staff who are only too happy to welcome you it's a top choice for lunch or dinner. I am particularly fond of the set menu to share with 1 or... More

My boyfriend and I visit Thai Orchid quite frequently. It's not the cheapest Thai around so we usually visit on a date night treat occasion but the set menu comes with a lot of food and is more cost effective than choosing the same amount of dishes from the main menu. There's a seafood stir fry that we both hugely... More

Been to the Thai Orchid a few times over the years and the last time for a romantic evening meal with my wife. As always the service was friendly and prompt and the food was (as it always as been) excellent. Love the menu choice, have not tired the Thai Orchid for lunch but hoping to one day.
