This is our favorite restaurant in Lincoln. My boyfriend always gets the Crying Tiger (and always loves it) and I tried the Blue Crab Fried Rice (delicious!) We love the atmosphere, the food is always good, and the service is fine. I also recommend Butter Chicken and the yellow curry.

Atmosphere is pleasant. Parking is challenging. I think that if you are looking for a something different this could be a nice option. . Service was not very good on this particular visit and we needed to send one dish back due to lack of sauce.

The Blue Orchid has great Thai food. I recommend the Pad-Thai or the drunken noodles. Friendly staff and convenient location.

Coming from Malaysia and often a visitor to Thailand, Thai food ulis nothing new to us This restaurant is located at the car park area and not visible when driving. We ordered Tom Yum and Mussels for starter. Tom Yum is very disappointing. Not spicy and sour at all. Mussels is good. Mains are blue crab fried rice, beef, orchid... More

We ate at the Blue Orchid last night for a birthday celebration. Our group had a variety of dishes, and everyone seemed pleased with their selection. Our waitress was very pleasant and attentive.

It has been a couple of years since I ate at this restaurant, but remember the experience well. The food was great and the service was exceptional. Price wise it is in the upper moderate to expensive range and that is the primary reason I do not eat here that often. When looking for a nice restaurant to entertain friends... More

The ambience of this restaurant is nice. But the food was below average. I ordered Tom Yum soup and Penang curry. The soup was little more than lemongrass water with boiled chicken pieces. Penang curry was too sweet! I could barely finish it. My wife had similar experience with her drunken noodles. Unnecessarily sweet! We had Tom Yum soup in... More

It's served in a pineapple bowl and tasty, zippy without being too hot. We ordered a nice Alsatian Reisling that complemented the food. If you're staying at embassy suites or in Haymarket district it's a short walk; you enter in what appears to be an alley on the south side of the Grand Manse. Also, a good, new brew pub... More
