I ordered the crab stir-fry thinking it would be nice to eat some crab but the pieces were so small it was hard to even pick them out of the plate of rice. I ended up eating only half the amount served. Dessert was better....fresh...More

This interesting, downtown restaurant is on the small side with seating rather close but worth the tight fit. Interesting array of cocktails including a lemon grass, gin, ginger concoction that was good enough to make me want to go there just for that! The food...More

We was a big group and the quality of the service couldn't be better. Great selection of pure thai food including different option for dietary restrictions. The Pad Thai and Lahd Nah (1-star spicy) extremely delicious! For sure we'll come again and again!

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.

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.
