We visited with friends having pre-booked our table. We had set meal B for four people and although the food was delicious we were all disappointed with the portion size. At the end of our main and looking forward to dessert and coffees we were asked if we could vacate our table and sit at the bar to make room... More

This is by far the best Thai food in Bucks if not further! Having been to Thailand 3 times and having been to this restaurant over 20 times, I can honestly say the food is authentic, mouth watering delicious and right up my street! I am so surprised to see this restaurant quite far down on trip advisor for restaurants... More

Visited on a Friday night. Lots of commuters out for an evening meal. Parking is a bit of a problem. However, the food was excellent and well presented by attentive waitresses. Very enjoyable. This is a Thai food restaurant, but if you prefer, they serve Indian food in a separate restaurant.

Popped in for a Thurs eve dinner(thai menu). I have probably eaten here 20 times over the past 2 years and never had a bad meal! Service is great, food is good quality and reasonably priced, house white wine is good too. If you like thai, you really cant go wrong choosing here.

Definitely a better than average Thai restaurant, good service, good food, reasonable price. Only downside, there was a couple of large groups in and we were seated in the middle of the two, very noisy.

I used to go to this restaurant years ago when driving back from work, the food is still quite good and pricey, but you pay for what you get and not the area. The area has nothing to do with the food prices, I hope.

We visit the blue orchid regularly, and we are never disappointed. We first started visiting this restaurant as we have a taste card which gives us a discount. The ambience and atmosphere is very nice and relaxed. The environment is immaculate and the customer service is excellent. The food is fantastic and I've not visited a place that does better...

We have visited this restaurant twice, once as a couple and then with a group of friends. The food is amazing, the staff impeccable and the venue is perfect. Definitely recommend.
