We had a curry and noodle dish from here and both were yummy. Plenty for leftovers the next day. Be warend though, prices for takeaway meals can be in excess of $30 if you order unwisely. There are cheaper options if you are not too picky. Always phone in your order to save waiting on the day.

Six of us for dinner. The staff were delightful and helpful and the premises were pleasant and comfortable. An extensive menu, and we elected to choose a main each and share. Without exception all of the mains were both generous in quantity and well flavoured, some very ornate carving of some of the vegetables was appreciated by our party. Excellent... More

Service ++ good. Length between ordering and being serviced was perfect to allow for conversation and ambience to sink in. Food- ordered the fresh spring rolls, cashew chicken and duck. Amazing flavors and huge portions! However duck did have a confusing sea food flavour. Lovely valentine's day experience, satisfaction all round.

My wife and I visited Thai Orchid for dinner one weekday evening. The food was excellent, the service quick and friendly, the price reasonable. We had vegetarian curry puffs followed by two mains. All items were delicious. I would happily recommend this place to anyone.

Fairly standard Westernised Thai food. Reasonably priced. Eaten here several times and never disappointed by food or service.

Had not been to Thai Orchid for along time as we had been disappointed with the food quality, however, having noticed the steet sign advising of the restaurant being under nnew management we thought we'd try again and very pleased we did so. The menu offers a few different items to many Thai restaurants in ChCh. The fresh Vietnamese rolls... More
