Diner Reviews
  • "Have always enjoyed this restaurant, urban legend says it started w a real Thai mom in the kitchen and it has always been good. Last night, however, it was only fair. When ordering I spend a lot of energy on the heat specs..and I ordered med hot to hot. It came out very mild. My stirfry was really boring and was really a soup, rather than a sauce. Even the coconut shrimp we ordered as an app was not inspired or tempting. My dining companions also said their dishes' heat also came out wrong. When speaking to some other friends, they also noted it has declined. Busy bar, though, and pleasant space. When I mentioned the heat level problem to the waitress (only at end, when I had eaten little) she was not very interested in my problem."

  • "If you like Thai food, this is a good choice. We call ahead for reservations, because if you don't you'll be disappointed. The place is always loud so don't expect a quiet evening out. The last few times it took 10-15 minutes for our server to get to us for our drink order, but this has more to do with how busy they were than to any slow service issues. Food came out hot and we've never left there hungry!"

  • "We really enjoyed ourselves here with authentic Thai food. It's a very comfortable atmosphere. My daughter wanted to go for her 16th birthday. Everything was very good. It is definitely on the pricier-side. My daughter got the pineapple fried rice, which was good, but again very pricey for fried rice. I got the drunken noodle, which was less than perfect this time. My boyfriend got the Red curry which was honestly outstanding. He went a little outside his comfort zone and choose that. He honestly loved it. White Orchid isn't a regular dining spot.... but once in awhile we splurge."

  • "The drinks are very expensive, so unless you like to spend $12 and up for a martini, glass of wine, or a beer, it is best to have one before you get there. The food prices are more reasonable, and a good entree can be had for between $17 and $25 and up. All dishes are made to order in regards to level of "heat" and dietary restrictions and preferences. The quality and taste were phenomenal! I would go back again, and recommend White Orchids to my friends!"

  • "I haven't had Thai food in a while and White Orchids didn't disappoint! They did a great job explaining the menu and they offere different levels of spicy on their food! The prices were very reasonable as well! They were offering a dessert special of a goat cheese cheesecake and it was the best cheesecake I've ever had! They need to make that a staple dessert on their menu!"

  • "We made a last minute reservation before leaving the house. They were extremely busy. We arrived a little early but they couldn't seat us. They did however seat us right on time per our reservation. Food was great as always. I love their drunken noodles. Great dinner. A little noisy because they were packed."

  • "Had lunch here during restaurant week. Food was as good as it always is, but service was lacking. A common complaint during RW, I suppose."

  • "Our service was excellent, the waiter/bartender was polite, well groomed and pleasant. The food was excellent! A great experience. My only objection was there was a gentleman sitting in the booth directly behind us, he was alone and spent the better part of our meal talking loudly on his cell phone. I find this anoying and rude."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "We really enjoyed our meals. The service was great and the atmosphere was somewhat upscale but casual at the same time. The only downside was the cost."

  • "This place is the gest thai restaurant in the lehigh valley. Everything is very flavorful and they will amend it to your liking. I would definitely recommend you give it a try."

  • "I always really enjoy the food at White Orchid and the presentation was really beautiful! However, the server didn't speak clearly and was practically whispering. Also, it took a while for the server to come to the table to check on us after our food was brought out. I highly recommend the food."

  • "As always, the dishes at White Orchids is excellent! If you like Thai cuisine, you must dine at White Orchids. The service is great -- prompt, friendly, and attentive. My guests loved it (it was their first time eating Thai). I will come back often."

  • "The spice levels are like a dare. Choose a slightly lower spice level and add heat if needed."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Food was goo, a bit pricey, service was poor. The server was friendly, but took forever to come back to the table to take out order and in between courses. The restaurant wasn't busy."

  • "My and my boyfriend's favorite Thai restaurant for their tofu options and excellent drunken noodles."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "Although I was not displeased, there is better Thai food in the Lehigh Valley. I was there a few years ago and came back with a colleague. My impression did not change. Our server was attentive but I felt rush in offering of taking away unfinished food. Likely not returning any time soon."

  • "This was our second visit to White Orchids. I have been in the food service business for 30 years. The food here has been perfect on both visits. My seafood; scallops, shrimp, calamari and mussels; was cooked properly where most restaurants over cook them. My Drunken Noodles where incredible. The flavor of the dish was so good that adding any of the extra condiments brought to the table would have been an insult to the chef. The ingredients are fresh and flavorful. The server was pleasant and knowledgeable. She was attentive with out being overbearing. We will go back again."

  • "We have been going to White Orchids Thai Cuisine almost once a week for the past several years. Food is always delicious, and the service is great. The owner family is very friendly and they are eager to make sure that the restaurant runs smoothly. Some of our friends say that the price is on the expensive side, but we feel that the price is well worth it."

  • "Very nice restaurant for enjoying that special occasion. The atmosphere is trendy yet intimate enough to enjoy your time out together. Our stir fry and rice bowl dishes were outstanding and the service could not have been better. Highly recommend this restaurant for a special date night or just a quiet night out with the family."

  • "My husband and I had been wanting to try this restaurant for a long time. We weren't disappointed! From cocktails and appetizers, all the way through dessert, everything was amazing. Already recommending to friends and planning a night to go back!"

  • "Our server was a bit unpleasant. The support staff to help her were very nice. But mainly though the food has gone downhill. For example, there is an appetizer they have called lobster rolls what used to be filled with lobster and mango. But they have begun to go cheap and now they are filled with a tiny piece of lobster and mango, and now mostly filled with lettuce.they also brought out 6 entrees which were to be served withrice and they brought just one large bowl of rice for all of us but the bowl is not that large and it was only half full. My question is, why would a restaurant go cheap and antagonize diners if they ask for more rice and charge them for it? Rice is a staple in Thai food so stupid decision on their part."

  • "It didn't help that the main order spiciness seemed to have been mixed up. My wife's entrée was like napalm and she asked for medium. My friend's different entrée was mild and he asked for hot. The shrimp and lobster in my entree special was way overcooked and tasteless. The appetizers were excellent. The drinks were good and quickly replenished. The desserts were overpriced and too sweet. I had recommended this place to our other couple and I was so embarrassed by how things turned out I picked up the $375 bill for all four of us. Not a good deal. We've been there before and liked it. Not this time."

  • "The ambience was a relaxing thai experience with the noise level being just right and very homy. The service was good, they were respectful, and the manager was very kind. And regarding the food, it was just amazing. Although we were a bit confused on what to order, my family and I were all surprised (in a good way). The prices were fair and worth it. But I do hope for more selection of tea. I would definitely come back."

  • "Its in Promenade, so very convenient for me. Especially if we are going out for a movie, this place is an excellent choice for lunch/dinner. There food is amazing and I love the ambiance. Its a bit on the expensive side, at least for graduate students like me, so we go there only occasionally."
    Dined on 1/4/2014
  • "I was really impressed with the Cocktail menu...stopped in for a bite before a movie and I was tempted to skip the movie and have cocktails all night. My noodles were a pit mushy on my Pad See ew but my friends Green curry was delish. The portions are appropriate for one meal, there were no take homes but the food taste was delish and the service was great."

  • "We are somewhat new to Thai cuisine, and this was our third trip to this restaurant. We have eaten something different each time, and each item has included a variety of tastes that come together to make an excellent meal. The service is excellent and the waitresses have been very knowledgeable and helpful at picking appetizers and entrees. We plan to return soon."
