This family owned business is very consistent is serving quality Thai cuisine! The region of Thailand where they came from has the best tasting recipes that are delicious! I have enjoyed every meal I've had here, or ordered to take out.

Ask for Charlie. The egg plant dish is great, also the pada chicken on a stick, get the 6 version. Anything on the menu is great, order the jasmine tea.

Charlie, the owner, is hands on, making this one of the best dining experiences I have ever had. Food is excellent, the place is very clean, decorated in amazing pictures and sculptures, gives you a taste of his beautiful country. Prices are very affordable, and...More

Don't bother. Service was poor. Portions were small. Lame presentation. 6 tiny tasteless shrimp rolls for 11.95 served by one latex glove on by a man who didn't want to be there.

Everything is always fresh and delicious. Love the pumpkin curry, pad thai, summer and spring rolls. Not fast food, but well worth the wait

We have dined here a few times with family and friends, and the food is consistently good. You can bring your own wine. Prices are reasonable. All the dishes we have tried have been very good. Loved their chicken satay.

We love Orchid Thai for lunch, supper or take-out. Wonderful food, great service and reasonable prices. We bring family and friends whenever they visit. Mahalo Orchid Thai!

Panang currry, papaya salad, summer rolls, fried rice -- all very delicious. A bit pricey -- lunch special was $11.95, decent portions that were filling and included choice of summer or spring rolls and rice. Recommend!

The restaurant is in a business area on the northern edge of Kona (no outside seating). The menu offers a wide selection of Thai specialities. We liked the curries. Service is fast, friendly. The place is our favourite Asian place, when we are in Kona.
