Great for quick lunch – Call me boring - but, I always order their spicy Thai Basil. They can make it nuclear hot upon request.
Good food – I beg to differ from the other reviews. It was not bad at all. I would say in fact it was quite tasty and a good change for me since I work closeby. Decent food, decent prices. It is not a fancy restaurant so the price is right for the quality.
Honestly, I quite enjoyed the food. Though they charged us way over but quickly corrected it when we pointed it out.
Very poor quality Thai Food – I've eaten food from the Thai Orchid (San Jose) many times, due to its convenient location to my office, and have been consistently disappointed. I order takeout, since the restaurant is always too crowded and full. The Curries are usually O.K., but nothing else I've tried there has been any good, considering how good Thai food can be. The Pad Thai is the worst I've ever had (very greasy, with an unpleasant taste). The Mango with Sticky Rice was more like Mango with Rice Leather, and it didn't even come with any reserved coconut sauce!
Value – Just went to Thai Orchid again on Trimble and First St in San Jose. Food was fine but the quantity went down and the price went up for the Pad Thai. Our LunchBunch group today decided to find another Thai restaurant.
Good food, nice owner – We have gone to Thai Orchid in Campbell several times and never was disappointed. The owner Chuck and his wife are wonderful. The serving staff is very friendly. The food is excellent. The place in Campbell is charming and inviting.
Really good thai food – Really good food. The service is pretty quick. This place is very busy during lunch. They do a great turnover. It's not a great place for a long leisurely quiet chat though. It's quick in, get some great food, and quick out again.
