This entire area, including most of San Antonio, seem to suffer from just OK Asian food. The pho is good and some of the dishes, but there is no wow factor. But it is the best in the area.

I find the food at Thai Lao Orchid very good. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The menu is not large, but the items listed are good. Prices are reasonable, and the servings are ample. We've only eaten there at noon, however, the crowds are always good at that time of day. I would recommend it as a good... More

Thai food and I do not get along together. Food is never on the same level of heat, you order 2 you get 4, you order 1 and you will get 1, needs to be on same level always

I stopped by today for a lunch to go. Ordered Panang Curry with Beef. It came out quickly, and I left with it. It was $10, plus tax and tip, so about $12. The portion size was small, Not the best Panang I've had - really just OK. Not good, not great. No eggroll, spring roll or soup. Lots of... More

Went for lunch with my wife. Service was not that good. Prices a bit high. Soup was good and the spring rolls were excellent. I ordered the Pad Thai and the portion size was good, but I think, for me, they used too much peanut butter sauce. Very over powering and could not taste any other spices.

I ordered a yellow tail sushi appetizer and it was very good. Nice big pieces too. I also ordered the chicken w/vegetables on noodles. The portion was very large. Which I thought was fair considering the price. I came home with enough leftovers for my dinner.

Enjoy a good Asian meal in the Hill Country. Hot is HOT and the prices are a bit high for what it is, but we still enjoy a meal here every few weeks.

I love this place! There food is always fresh and hot. My favorite is the Yellow Curry with Chicken. You do have to be careful on the Spice level as Mild is pretty spicy. I also like their crispy egg roll appetizer. It's searched with a cashew dipping sauce that is amazing. The service is great while you dine in.... More

I work near by and eat here a few times a month. It's a small cafe, bamboo vibe. Open on Monday, that's a big plus for this area. Curry, pot stickers, soups- delicious as well as entrees. You pick the spice/heat level 1 mild to 5 extra hot. We often get edimame, and the sampler platter, good portions. Staff is... More

When TLO first opened it was stellar. Unfortunately, several owner/management changes have detrimentally impacted the service and the food quality and portions, but, it's still a pretty decent place to eat.
