Yummy – This is one of the better Thai restaurants I've been to around Portland. Much better than Typhoon, although not as good as Mai Thai. I didn't experience the same bad service the other reviewers did, but I went when it was dead and the employees had nothing better to do than give us attention, although it was slow in getting our food. I would recommend this place, except that Mai Thai is pretty close and even better.
Ok if you are in the area, no need to make special trip – I agree with other reviewers, try a mom and pop thai place instead. The food is alright, but the SERVICE IS THE WORST. Not that they are unfriendly, they just don't check on you or refill water, or bring you the check, etc. etc.
Food is expensive, good most of the time, but unstable depends on who is the cook – The food is above average among all Thai restaurant, price is very expensive, service is ok. but Orchid Corporate is very arrogant if you run into any issue
out of food! – I went to Thai Orchid for the first time about two weeks ago. The main course-- curry duck-- was nothing to rave about, but the mango sticky rice dessert was TO DIE FOR. For the past two weeks, I've been craving it like crazy. So, today I finally had time to stop in. I walked in, asked the waitress if they had the mango sticky rice. She said yes. I was seated and said that was all I wanted. Well, ten seconds later she comes back and says they don't have any afterall. NOOO! I was really disappointed, but it did say "seasonal" next to the rice on the menu, so I couldn't fault anyone. Instead I said I'd have an appetizer and the coconut ice cream-- ice cream first since I was starving and wanting sweets. Two minutes later she comes back and says they don't have any ice cream, either. In fact, they're all out of dessert! So I end up ordering one appetizer and a side of rice and paying $9.50 and going down the street to Walgreens and getting a candy bar. I'm very sad! (and likely will not return)
Best Thai food ever!!! – Simply stated, best thai food ever!! It was amazing, we loved it. Parking is hard to find though.
Awesome Thai Food! – I didn't know what to expect in a strip mall by a Bi-Mart, but I gotta say... I LOVE THIS PLACE and everyone I refer has fallen in love also. I would highly recommend it! Great food for a great price.
Best Thai ever! – I love there spring rolls (fried and unfried) and the sweet n sour with tofu. The curries are good also. It's nice that most everything can be made with tofu if you want it like that. Thai Orchaid is one of my favorite Thai restaurants.
User review by honestlybroken – Easily one of the best Thai restaurants in Portland. Try the Duck Curry, Evil Jungle Noodles or the Pad Kee Mow. Their Tom Yum and Tom Kha soups are divine!
Wonderful!! – Great vegetarian dishes! I would reccommend the Pad thai and the fried tofu appetizer. That appetizer even turned someone on to the joys of tofu.
User review by christopherxh – Pretty average food, too greasy and mushy. The wait staff, while not rude, are not at all helpful.
