We sought out vegan food in the land of beef and bar-b-que and we found just the right spot at Blue Orchid. We enjoyed patio dining and a server, Toni, who helped us select vegan options. Will return when we venture through Lincoln next time!

We always get a great meal and at least good if not excellent service when we visit. Great dishes that you can't find elsewhere; the Kao Soi is our favorite. Would be nice if beer selection was expanded.

After several recommendations, I decided to try this place for my last night in Lincoln. After walking in, you notice that it is a very modern looking Thai restaurant but don't let that distract you from the fact that they server excellent food. After not...More
