I had dinner at the place last night after attempting to try dining at Eurothai which was 20m away from this place. eurothai didn't had a lot of variety in terms of food. Therefore my husband and I decided to check out the menu at the orchids restaurant, after checking out the price and the variety , we decided to... More

We have been coming to this restaurant over the last 6 years and it seems to be changing flavours to a more western style. Service was good, but food arrived so quickly it seemed as though it was pre -prepared and heated up in the microwave.

We had dinner here as it was a restaurant that we had enjoyed on a previous visit to Patong but as with some of our other favourites the Thai food seems to have become very much aligned to that liked by conservative tourists. We ordered a Tom Ka Gai and a Green Chicken curry both of which were ok but... More

We ate here during a 3 night stay in Patong and although it was really busy the service was fast enough as was the food. We ate thai red curry, pad thai and a duck dish and all were really tasty and reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend eating here and there's the added bonus of a singer in the restaurant...

Up to give this place we ate at street with street prices, but things have changed. Gosh I miss is this place, the food is incredibly good i tried almost all the menu, considering that we ate here five days continuously. Service is not of the best but you can overlook. Highly recommend.

Properly done Thai food (not tourist style with for example, lek gung removed from classic dishes "...because tourists don't like it" ) plus the usual ++ international dishes. Nice mix of Asian tourists (= always a good sign food wise in phuket) and the more perhaps more informed - or lucky to stumble in - western tourists. Not even on... More

Orchids is situated on a corner and has an expansive open air feel to it. Food is top quality and drinks are generous. Always ask the staff for their recommendations. We have been there several times over the years and have never been disappointed.

The photo in the menu looked appealing/yummy. So we decided to try. However, the actual food was not the same. Small portion, tasteless & dry. Very disappointed. Price was slightly highly than others. On the wall, there is no smoking sign but because it's an open air restaurant, some customers tend to smoke, but the waiter nvr stop them. Very... More
