Happy visit to Blue Orchid. We were put off at first because we couldn't see in to the restaurant from the street but decided to go with other reccomendations. Inside it is comfortable, but maybe a bit dark, with tables quite close together. Thai fish cakes were tasty and obviously freshly made. The green prawn curry was superb but probably... More

Lovely food, good atmosphere, the service was the reason for 4 rather than 5 stars. Service suffered because they were busy - asked if we wanted dessert and then forgot to bring the dessert menu. Wine very reasonably priced by the glass - how refreshing, normally feel ripped off if I buy just a glass or two. We enjoyed the... More

Don't be fooled but the tucked away location, the food here is consistently exceptional. Great Thai food.

I read a few glowing reviews online before trying Blue Orchid so my expectations were high. Usually when this happens I get disappointed, but not this time. Blue Orchid is the best Thai I have ever had. The garlic prawns were superb and the red curry chicken was perfect. It costs a few dollars more than other Thai places in... More

We did not dine in the restaurant as we had very tired children, so opted for a take-a-way meal. Food was ordered and there was only a short wait (10 minutes) for the meals to be ready. The food was amazing and very, very tasty. There was fight the next day for who had the leftovers for lunch.

We tried the green chicken curry - okay but not an authentic green curry at all, disappointing but we arrived as the kitchen was closing so maybe it was hurried instead of curried.... Green curry should be the defining dish for a Thai restaurant We tried the Thai fish cakes - nice but not quite spicy enough, a bit "Australianised"... More

We booked for a pre-concert meal, knowing that our time was limited and that we would probably only order main courses. Although the starters here are absolutely delicious (as we know from previous visits) on this occasion we chose one vegetarian ginger stir fry and a 'special' slow cooked red lamb for the carnivore! I asked the waitress if the... More

I was very reluctant to dine here as I am not a lover of Asian cuisine, but I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. I had the BBQ duck and it was amazing! I was so happy that I didn't have to get a curry if I didn't want one. They also had beautiful chicken kebabs and spring rolls.... More
