We visited as it was a very rainy day and we wanted somewhere near to our hotel. As we love Thai food we decided to give it a try. It's VERY dark in this place with some tea lights and fairy lights providing ambience and all tables are quite private little nooks and crannies. It's maybe a little too dark... More

This restaurant has been around in several guises for a long time, and this version is good, the decor is unusual and provides a nice feel to the place. Staff are friendly and helpful. Food is typical Thai English with a fairly big menu, portions are large and tasty. Always seems to be pretty full at weekends so booking is... More

Little piece of Thailand in Cornwall. Everything from the cosy "Aladdins cave " decor to the lovely service and delicious food was a pleasure. We went for the veggie set menu which was amazing value for money- huge portions of delicious and authentic Thai food. Defiantly would recommend -have eaten Thai all over and this definitely rates one of the... More

Fish cake starter was like rubber no taste and oily, husbands minced pork somethings were awful, friends prawns were best. Mains was ok nothing special,... More

Service was quick & staff very friendly, They had accidentally booked a table of 6 for us when there was only 3 but although we ofered to move tables they let us continue on that table & did not at all make us feel rushed to leave. Food was very very good & we all enjoyed our meals. We will... More

Went to this restaurant twice on our recent holiday to Falmouth. We chose the meal for 3 the first time and it was excellent. On our second visit we chose a meal for 4 , food was good but not as good as our first visit 4 days previously. Would recommend it and would visit again.

Ordered a take away from The Thai Orchid this evening due to the fact dining in the restaurant has always been fantastic. Unfortunately this experience wasn't great with none of the dishes living up to the standards of dining in the restaurant. The panang curry was dissapointing.. very watery and tasteless with hardly any prawns. Although the rib starters were... More

I had never tried Thai food before visiting this restaurant and it was amazing. Everything my husband and I ordered was full of taste and the presentation was great. The restaurant itself is beautifully decorated and you find yourself admiring all of the hidden gems around the interior. When we visit Falmouth again next year this will definitely be on... More
