We've been enjoying Orchids for several years, a go-to place with out of town company and for take-out when someone isn't in the mood to cook - even for special occasions despite the non-descript (weathered) interior. Expect crowds on the weekends during tourist season but have never had bad service and often have exceptional service. We get cravings for the Chef's Special Spicy Eggplant. They serve brown rice, cooked perfectly always, and consistently delicious fresh food. Have met Pacific Crest Trail through-hikers on the trail asking for directions once they pull into South Lake Tahoe. It's famous on the trails. Our pocketbook likes them too.

We had take-away from here one night when staying in Heavenly when we couldn't be bothered cooking. Everyone recommended it, we were very happy with it as well and it was certainly busy!

Bit of a drive from our resort (right by the lift in Heavenly), but very good and knowledgeable service and good value. Would recommend (although I'm sure you'll have had spicier food elsewhere - although we didn't try the really spicy stuff admittedly).

The place looked ordinary enough. It was packed, though it was Saturday night. The staff was efficient, friendly and helpful. I had a curry dish, and my son had Pad Thai, we also had the Happy rolls appetizers. It was great. I'll be back, for sure.

We ate here both of the 2 nights we stayed in So. Lake Tahoe this month. The first night we ate there, 2nd picked up to go after big hike day. The special was Pumpkin Curry! It was great - marked as spicy but not spicy enough for me. But so good - had it with tofu. Staff very pleasant, service quick. Informal and comfortable.

We had a very pleasant experience here at orchids Thai restaurant. Great service and delicious flavorful food with just the perfect amount of spice and seasonings. A little gem in Tahoe. We will make this trip every time we get out to Tahoe.
