This rating is for their mango sticky rice.

Other than that, the food is average. Price is not as expensive as those on the main road, but was really disappointed on the tomyum as it's not as flavorful as the others. Ordered king prawn - not bad. Panang curry is average.

For some reason, the staff are quick to clear the dishes. We are not done eating one of the dish and the staff almost came and took it away. We stopped her saying we're not done and she lingered around and was lightning fast to come over once the plate is empty. A bit rude to me. Could have waited till we're done eating right?

A little way down one of the side streets off the main Patong beachfront road. Very friendly staff, delicious freshly cooked Thai food, good selection of drinks and reasonable prices. They don't stint on the ingredients.

We stumbled in here as it was close to the hotel after a day of traveling to get to Phuket and really wanting some good Thai food and really cold beer.

The Orchids delivered!

The food is really excellent, we had a selection of Pad Thai, Tom Yum (spicy!) and a fried rice of some kind, followed by mango sticky rice. With a couple of beers, fresh coconuts and soft drinks it was around $50 for the five of us, really great value for Phuket considering the quality and quantity was so good.

We came back the second night just for the mango sticky rice and a beer...

Definitely a place we will eat again

Could not believe the meals in this little restaraunt off Thanwewong Rd in Patong. St Called Soi Dr i think but down the back of a busy little lane way and the food was so delisous. The staff were great and sooo cheap. There were 10 of us and we had drinks, entrees, mains and deserts and at the end of the night our costs were $14 AUD each. We could not believe it so we went there most nights as you cant go passed that price.. Is a Thia Restaraunt but cooks western meals too.
