A great find in the downtown area. Had lunch, which consisted of a Thai basil dish, and pad thai. Add in some wine, a quiet setting, and it was great. Ok, the ambience isn't fancy, but the food was incredible. So glad we stopped. Pricing...More

Small, unpretentious and delicious. Generous portions of authentic Thai cuisine from a budget priced luncheon menu. Deserves the #1 rating. Try the larb, any flavor. Not available at most Thai restaurants.

Our dinner was just what we wanted on a cold evening. Nice low key interior and good service. The Tom Kha soup was great and the red curry delicious. We should strongly recommend this place.

Very popular place! We did take out and the wait was 20min. The green curry was delicious, the dumplings were a little dry, and the drunken noodles were good. Right downtown, close walking distance to stores, restaurants, and hotels.

My husband and I have been on a kick of Thai food lately. We've eaten at several places in several towns nearby. Thai Orchid is by far our favorite. What it lacks in size it makes up for in big flavors! From the hot and...More
