Best thai food we had in Thailand. Cheap food. Be aware of small portions; we recommend men to have both starter and main dish.

On our recent holiday to Thailand I was in need for a very good vegetarian meal of which I found at a few places. The Orchid Restaurant is one of the best that I have been to.

Let me start with some detail around the meal.

For starters, the spring rolls were quite good and presented nicely (I have had better spring rolls at other restaurants but these were not oily and were quite fresh). I am very fond of Thai and Indian flavours and for a change I was able to have a Thai curry without having to worry about fish sauce and the like.

A massaman or red curry is a good start when trying Thai food. The curry that I ordered was of a high local standard and was thoroughly enjoyed. I have no complaints in this regard so try one of the curries if you are vegetarian as you can get a morning glory stir fry almost anywhere.

Furthermore on a second visit I decided to try the Tom yum vegetarian soup which will warm you up quite nicely so as a recommendation it is definately worth a try if you enjoy spicy flavourful food.

For non vegetarians try a chicken dish or appetizer.

The meals and drinks are priced well all round and there is free wifi.

Try out a fruit shake while you are here!

I had one of their set menus with soup and a stir fry and everything was very tasty. The restaurant is located on the busy and sometimes noisy road, but very cozy authentic atmosphere and the owner always ready for a chat.

Loved the green curry chicken - thought it was the best I've tasted in my 4 days in Koh Samui.
The tom yam gung was good as well. They had a generous portion of seafood in the dish.
Tried the papaya salad with seafood as well - that was above average.
