Stopped in today for a quick lunch. The decor inside is pleasant and comfortable. I had the Kahn Soi and hot tea. The soup was very good and the prices were very decent.

The Royal Orchid used to have the best Thai food around. It was spicy, but not too spicy, and the food was always piping hot and delicious. The service was super super fast, and the staff was always really helpful. But lately, the restaurant is getting slightly worse, the food is often colder and either unspiced or over spiced, and...

We had lunch with a friend here at her suggestion last month and were very pleasantly surprised at the quality and decent price. Conveniently located just a block off the main drag (both main drags: State and Main. They have very pleasant outdoor seating for the few months of good weather. The food was good, the service quick.

Today was a turning point for me at Royal Orchid when we arrived for a late lunch at 2:03 to be exact and were told that they close down from 2:00-5:00 and open back up for dinner. Yet, on their website it says 11:30- 2:30 for lunch! And there is a sign on the door that says closed on Mondays...... More

I have eaten lunch on two different occasions at Orchid Thai, the first time with a colleague and the second time by myself. Both times the service was excellent- friendly and attentive waiter. For a sit-down restaurant, the food came out FAST, which is much appreciated during an hour lunch break. I have now had the lemongrass beef and pad... More

Went to the restaurant on a Wednesday evening with a group about an hour before closing, very few other folks inside. With a group, there was a pretty broad spectrum of food ordered. I found my Potstickers to be rather bland; not bad, just sort of tasteless. People really liked their #1 fried eggrolls; they were out of the #2... More

Visiting Montpelier to tour the Capitol and discovered Thai cuisine at the Royal Orchid and very happy I did. Service was a excellent. Lunch served fast and thoroughly enjoyed the Thai flavors I've come to enjoy. My server helped me choose between three noodle dishes. The choice: the Pad Kee Mao with wide rice noodles, chili, broccoli, basil and medium-hot... More
