MSG WARNING – We had take out lunch served at my office today from Siam Orchid. Spring Rolls, Crab Puffs and Pad See Ew Noodles were served. The menu clearly states: "... NO MSG!" It's a lie. Within 10 minutes my lips went dry and numb, heart rate elevated, chemical taste and tingling in mouth and sinus, migrane headache - classic signs I know through experience as a 50 year old male who is very aware of MSG. KY Health Depts. can't do anything, nor Campbell County so I turn to you regarding very dangerous and misleading advertising. BUYER BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!!!
pleasant surprise – This restaurant is kind of out of the way far from the Cincinnati urban core, but in a developing rural/suburban area south of the city. The food was excellent. The service was spotty, however there was only one waitress on the Sunday we tried the place ans while we were there 4 to 5 tables filled up and she handled several carry out orders. Just do not go there if you are in a hurry. We did notice they had a set up for a buffet and this would be a way to get around the service issue. We forgot to ask when the buffet is open, but will try to go next when it is in operation. If you live out that way carryout is the way to go, but the food is good enough to make it worth the trip anyway, just be patient.
Most Authentic Thai Food Around! If you ask ...they will specialize any entree – Very Friendly and Menu Informed Service was provided. Me and my fiance were made very comfortable to ask questions and hear suggestions. We love spice and were told the chefs can make any dish we wanted to our liking. The Thai Basil Noodles are home made and Awsome. Dessert was suggested and something we're glad we didn't pass up on. If you make it in this somewhat non-advertised resturaunt definitely try out the Sticky Rice.
Bad Service – Service was very disappointing. There were only 2 other tables that had people at them. We were served our meal then never saw the server again. I ran out of my drink before the meal even came and he did not offer to refill again. I left to go to my car to get something AFTER I finished then came back in and the bill was there and now my drink was refilled. No point now that I was finished! Worst service I have ever had anywhere. Very pricey too. Not worth it unless you have a coupon
Siam Orchid - Cheap & Delicious food. – Siam Orchid is the best and most reasonably priced Thai restaurant in the Greater-Cincinnati- Northern Kentucky area. The restaurant serves authentic Thai and Chinese food. The owner-chef and his wife, who come from Thailand, are very nice people. The restaurants interior displays authentic Thai decorations.
Siam Orchids dishes are not spicy unless you request it. Most of the dinner entrees cost $8.50. Lunch is served Tuesday-Saturday and theres a lunch buffet on Sundays. Siam Orchid is closed on Mondays.
The best dish there is the Chicken Pad Thai: rice noodles, sliced chicken breast, crushed peanuts, egg, scallions, bean sprouts, and a sweet but mildly spicy sauce.
The best appetizers are the crab puffs (crab pasty with cream cheese) and chicken Satay (chicken strips with a delicious peanut sauce).
With the food so good and the prices so low, my wife and I eat there virtually every week.
Good Thai Food!:) – Siam Orchid has really good food, but the service is a little bit slow on seating and delivering ordered to the table once ordered. Other than being slow, Saim Orchind is very good.
