“Simple fresh Thai”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

Lunch time visit, been several times, consistently tasty Thai, more cafe than restaurant but value for money, never disappoints.

“Very nice Thai food”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

We visited for dinner on a beautiful Darwin evening and had a great table right by the water. We found the service to be friendly but a bit amateur. Nothing was messed up, but it just didn't inspire confidence that they had the order right (they did get it right though). The food was the real highlight, and was really good across the range of entrees and mains we had. So much so that we revisited for take-away later in the week which was also excellent.

“Lack of service”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

After waiting for 30 minutes we had to tell the waitress we were ready to order. Some of us ordered a main and some an entree. We asked for them to come at the same time but it didn't. When we asked for dessert it arrived but the first course had not been removed. I had to move our main course plates to the next empty table. Very disappointed as the food was excellent and the setting was brilliant. It was just the lack of service.

“Top Notch Food, service a little off”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

The Golden Orchid Restaurant in Cullen bay has a great location looking out into the marina. The food really is fantastic, we have not had a bad experience yet. The service however needs some work. You must make sure that they understand what you want as they tend to assume and then get it wrong. Other than that give the place a go. The breakfast and the seafood Laksa would be the highlights for me.
