I knew from the moment that I looked at the pages and pages of menu that it was going to be a fairly forgettable meal. You can't offer that big a selection and do it well.

The food was nice enough but by no means exciting or authentic. I had Thai red duck curry and there was hardly a hint of chilli, fish sauce, lime or lemongrass. It lacked the bold, fresh flavours of authentic Thai food and was basically a coconut stew. Same went for the pad thai which had little distinguishing flavour.

The food was however well presented and the decor was modern, with a great view of the sea. The staff were friendly and attentive. I just wish they served better food.

Fab meal with friends. Service was excellent, the views are great and the decor very stylish. Food was delicious, hard to decide what to choose off the menu, will definitely be back to try some of the other options.

Hubby and I have popped in the Orchid a few times for Saturday lunch as we're passing.

The restaurant is contemporary, relaxing and welcoming and the staff are very friendly and helpful.

Although the menu is not vast, what's on offer is very tasty, well-presented and excellent value or money - lunch is £7.95 for a main and side dish! In addition, they don't charge excessively for soft drinks, which is unusual. There is also a competitively-priced take-away menu.

I understand that the restaurant can be quite busy in the evenings and for Sunday lunch, but to be honest, I don't know why it's not packed to the rafters on Saturdays!

I recommend anyone out there to give it a try - you won't regret it.
