We had a lovely meal of chicken phad Thai and a spicy chicken veg with wife noddles. The atmosphere of this restaurant lends itself to a beautiful evening for a couple. We sat in the booth area in the back and the server was the right balance of service and allowing you time together. The owner overheard us comparing with... More

I like the Thai Orchid and usually eat here when spending a weekend in Seoul. The food is GREAT and has a lot of options for favorite Thai dishes, with different types of meat and vegetarian options. The ambience is pleasant and decoration tasteful. It isn't a hole-in-the-wall, but it also isn't something that you need to get especially dressed... More

이태원에서 느끼는 태국 음식과 태국 분위기 그리고 음악까지, 전통적인 맛을 좋아하는 분들에게 좋고 태국음식이 익숙하지 않은 분들은 코코넛 밀크가 같이 들어간 요리를 드시면 훨씬 부드러운 맛을 느낄 수 있어요! 한국인들이 즐기기엔 음식 서빙 속도가 그리 빠른 편이 아니라서(태국 분들입니다) 조금은 답답하게 느낄 수도 있지만 다른 점들은 좋습니다!:) You can feel the Thailand in center of Korea! All the dishes were... More

There were 4 of us - two couples. We had a quiet dinner with fair amount of options. The food was delicious and the staff was pleasant. Overall ambiance is decent. Worth a visit if you like Thai food.

Without even asking for spicy, our meals came that way. For us, that was great! The Tofu Pad Thai was amazing!!! Fantastic portion size. My partner had the Grilled Beef Salad and enjoyed it as well. A+++++ to our server who was over-the-top friendly.

I have been living in Korea for over two years and this was the best pineapple fried rice I've had outside of actual Thailand. The owner was there and she was awesome and very hospitable.

Best Thai food in South Korea, lovely layout and staff seemed lovely however we were the only ones eating here throughout the whole time we were dining at 2pm on a Thursday. Maybe we picked the wrong time/date but try not to be put off by the lack of ambience/atmosphere - the food was brilliant and made up for it!!... More
