I've been a local police medical doctor for many years and often have to dash to Hastings on a job. I always treat myself if its dinner time at this particular Thai restaurant. I've travelled extensively in Asia and can honestly say, that while its hard to duplicate all the lovely smells and tastes of Thailand, this restaurant comes the CLOSEST to the real thing.

Try the Crispy Pork Salad -- spicy.

Recommended.

My husand and I and friends visited the Thai Orchid.We had come up from Wgtn to the Mission Concert and we were staying in Hastings. We certainly chose a great restaurant. The food was tasty, delicious, and presented beautifully. The staff were exceptionally friendly. Thoroughly enjoyed our evening we will certainly be back when we revisit Hastings.

My husband and I have visited Thai Orchid on several occasions - whenever we're in Hawke's Bay. We've found the staff to be friendly and helpful, and the food delicious. They even made my husband a korma that wasn't on the menu! The restaurant is beautifully decorated and authentic, making for a very pleasant dining experience. They also have a takeaway menu available. Highly recommended.
