The Blue Orchid never fails to please. I especially like that the staff is versed in the dishes and can make accurate recommendations when you tell them what you want. The cocktails are top notch too.

Very hard to find this place. It is located in sort of an alleyway and the front of the restaraunt does not face the street. Also there is no parking very close. My first impression entering the place was very good. Nice decorations and real cloth tablecloths. Our waiter was over quickly and answered our questions completely and took our... More

I have eaten at the Blue Orchid with my wife and friends many times and we have never been disappointed. Our server during our last visit was friendly and knowledgeable about both the menu and libations offered. The chicken satay appetizer is a delicious starter as are all of the appetizers. A lot of tasty options on the main menu... More

Our server was a guy named Kris who was both friendly and knowledgeable about the menu including every beverage in the house. I'd recommend the Khao Soi as he did. Will return for this dish.

This is probably the 5th time I have eaten at this restaurant, previous times have been a good experience. This time however was horrible. My wife and I were both going to order the lamb, but we always like to try something new and share, so I tried the beef in cognac dish. The good news was that my wife... More

The dishes are simple and well-presented. This is a good date-night or nice lunch spot. Every dish I try is delicious and there is flexibility about the level of spiciness in any given dish. A very pretty restaurant with pretty food.

A bit of a contrast - upscale atmosphere with reasonably priced menu. Very well prepared dishes. The bar offers drinks that are crafted well.

Maybe we hit the timing wrong the other night. Yes, the place was full, but it took half an hour for the appetizer soup to come out, and a full hour for our two main dishes to come out. That's pretty lame. And only saw our waitress for the order, when food came out, and for the bill. Poor service... More
