I visited Thai Orchid with a friend using a Groupon voucher. After reading some reviews I was a little apprehensive, it appeared that Groupon customers received inferior service reading the reviews.
Well, we were pleased that the opposite was in fact the case, the food was good quality and though the choice using the voucher limited, we thoroughly enjoyed our flavoursome dinner.
The mixed platter is not my ideal choice, it included a sesame chicken toast, mini spring roll and
b-b-q chicken portion that did nothing to showcase Thai cuisine. The main courses were limited but we had red beef curry, pork with chilli and coconut rice. All three were beautifully cooked, presented and packed with flavour. I guess if you eat stodge or big portions this might not suffice but it was sufficient and left me feeling comfortably fed. The after taste of spices was a reminder of the good food we enjoyed, would go back in a heartbeat, the full menu looks excellent.

Enjoyed a delicious meal very attractively presented with friends. The service was attentive but not overbearing. Would recommend.

Food was delicious. However, Lunch menu said £8.99 per head 'All you can eat' (see picture of menu attached). However, our party of 4 ordered 2 extra starters as part of the menu and we were charged full price (£5.25 each) for the 2 starters.

When we complained to the waiter (who said he was the duty manager) he had no concept of what 'All you can eat' means and just repeated, '1 starter, 1 main, 1 rice per person'.

It's still a good deal but ensure you know exactly what you're paying for.

Booked to go for lunch yesterday (Monday 27th January), with our Groupon deal and I must say, the food and service was as it has always been. We did laugh, as we were the only ones, but hey, nice little restaurant, great food and nice experience, just a shame it was very cold in there, we had to keep our coats on and drink lots of tea.
We were impressed with the Groupon deal, mixed shared starter, enough food on there and tasty, chose the massaman chicken curry and egg fried rice, both very nice, hot and freshly made.
Really couldn't fault the food and the service, just go prepared with a coat, incase it is cold, however, this did not put us off and we will go back again.

I do apologise in the atmosphere on the time of your visit, since your last visit I have looked into your query and have rectified the issue in relation. If I was in your place I would want nothing more than to enjoy my food in the best atmosphere made possible!
