SquareMeal Review of Blue Orchid

Ornate wood carvings, mini palm trees and friendly staff in colourful silk tunics are par for the course in this rather sophisticated Thai restaurant and bar. As expected, the 70-dish menu covers all the staples of the cuisine from chicken satay, spring rolls, fishcakes and soft-shell crabs with garlic and pepper sauce to an assortment of familiar tom yum soups, stir-fries, curries of various colours, grills and noodles. Also check the seafood specials include pan-fried whole sea bass with served with a Thai salad or sizzling ta-lay phad cha (a mixed selection with fresh herbs and chillis). Set menus (from £17.95 a head) offer a decent choice for sharing, and the drinks list runs from Asian beers to some spice-friendly international wines.

I have eaten at Blue Orchid many times and have always found the food and service to be without fault. Food as lovely and I cleared my plate which I never tend to do when eating out. Very good restaurant with great atmosphere and very friendly service.

This is not really a Thai restaurant – it's an Indian pretending to be one. Flavours muddy, oils and spices left a funny taste in the mouth.
