After the initial apprehension of parking space, was surprised at the vast parking area at the back of this restaurant. A chic, not so little place, with a buzzing vibe to match. Nice sophisticated, bustling but still able to hold a round table conversation with ease. Service was prompt, efficient & friendly. The Tom yum soup was very tasty, so where the prawn & chicken dumplings. Recommend the sweet & sour crispy fried fish. The stir fry dishes were protein laden, but do with a few more colourful verges in the mix. A very pleasant, sophisticated little place in Springwood frequented by in-the-know locals.

I love this restaurant. The food is amazing.

Tonight the place was crowded so made it a bit hard to hear the conversation with my wife. But as always, the best Thai food I have eaten in Australia.

Having been a fan of Thai Orchid for many years when it was at Milton, I decided to try the Springwood restaurant again after like 8 years and what a disappointment it was. The Masaman Beef Curry was watery and the meat was not as tender as it should be. The sauce was not creamy brown but more red and had no taste. And the Pad Thai was very bland and cold. I will never return. Don't waste your money. Overpriced and not the Thai Orchid of yesteryear. And being charged 50c for takeaway containers was just over he top. I'm sure they don't charge their takeaway customers. Avoid at all costs!!

A very upmarket restaurant in Springwood, great tasty meals and attentive service. Prices are higher than comparative restaurants, but meals are extremely good. Best to book as they are always busy.

Went here for a family dinner and it is a place I will never return to.
When we were seated we waited 15 minutes for the menus after another 15 minutes we finally managed to place our order. Staff were hard to understand and were not very friendly. Service was simply appalling.
The meals did not come out at the same time. So two main meals were eaten before the other one came out.
Issues include:
- The duck curry was served with stone cold rice . There was only three pieces of duck in the dish and rest full of vegetables. $30 is a big steep.
- the salt and pepper calamari tasted like deep fried cornflour. No salt or pepper!
- the dim sims had no taste at all
- the chicken fried rice had more onion than chicken, not nice at all.
The total cost of the bill was over $120 and was definitely left disappointed.
Not a place I will return to or would recommend to others.
