We received a warm welcome, the decor is fine if not perfect, the food choice was great. Our friends had not eaten Thai before but the chicken satay with peanut sauce was lovely, the red duck curry was fab. The host was helpful and attentive but not invasive. We were not rushed and stayed for over two hours. This is... More

Great food, very pleasant and attentive host (Tim). Prices just right, even the wine was reasonable for very good wine. Will go again.

What an absolutely awful restaurant, or should I say cafe, it defies being described as a restaurant. We (4 of us) went on the evening of New Years day, what a waste of time and money. It is a cold and damp building, and even though it is an arch there is no excuse for this. The decor is truly... More

We were staying in the near by Ramsgate Harbour View hotel so it was a steep climb down the stairs to the Westcliffe Arcade but still very convenient for our hotel. The place is very informal and pretty cosy so the best time to visit is during warm weather when you can sit outside. I have to say when we... More

Went there for lunch with 3 friends we found the service excellent and the best Thai food we have found anywhere. TIM the owner was very attentive without being intrusive the restaurant has great views of the harbour but you do need to book at weekends

Have visited the Thai Orchid many,many times with family and just adore the relaxed atmosphere of this lovely informal restaurant, and the Thai food is unsurpassable. I would recommend that you book a table as they do get very busy, which again speaks for itself. Staff are very pleasant. Can't fault.

This restaurant is not exactly easy to find, but once you know where it is, you will come back there again and again - just as I do. It is located underneath the Royal Temple Yacht Club in Ramsgate, so you cannot park outside, and you cannot see it fro the road. It is a small, intimate restaurant, run by... More

We visited on a Tuesday night in October and were impressed to see the restaurant busy all evening - a great sign that the food is fantastic. Upon arrival we were warmly greeted by the attentive owner, who made sure that we were happy and well looked after all evening. They have a wide selection of wines on the premises,... More

We have lived in Ramsgate for over a year now and Thai Orchid was very close to our flat but for some arbitrary (and stupid) reasons we had never been to this restaurant until recently when we finally decided to give it a shot. Now I'm regretting all the possible dishes I could've had this last year! The food is... More
