The food and service were excellent as usual. We did miss the miso soup that used to come prior to dinner, but everything else was wonderful.

The food was delicious. The service was good but they were very busy so it was a little slow. Love their food.

Probably some of the best curry in the area. Although we have tried other things the curry dishes are our favorite. We had one of the house specials which is crispy duck with the red curry, pineapple, grapes and lychee. It sounds like a weird combination but it’s very delicious.

Come here often and the food is always outstanding and so is usually the service. Had a party of seven and this time it really took a long time to get our food, then two received food then 5 more minutes then two more than two more everyone received their meal except one. We had to flag someone down to inquire and although they apologized for the delay, it was apparent that they forget his order. It came out at least 15 minutes later when most of us were done eating. Plus take out orders were coming out of the kitchen before his. Only time this has happened.

Very tasty food! I loved the coconut curry bowl. It had plenty of seafood, a great flavorful curry sauce & was so delicious! My husband really enjoyed his green curry with shrimp also. The ambulance was very pleasant & festive, clean also. The staff were all very nice including the owner who came by our table to check on us. Great experience!

Ambiance and staff — really nice. Food — not so good. We ordered summer rolls and we got two that were filled with nothing but iceberg lettuce and some carrot strings, definitely not worth the money. I order Panang curry. The sauce was good compared to other panang curries I’ve had, but my tofu was very overcooked, tough and chewy. If you want dependably yummy Thai, go to Thai Spice kitchen. It’s not nearly as fancy but the food is alway stellar.

Great authentic Thai food. The issue continues to be the sub-par service. Recent visits we have experienced extended times from seating to entrees arriving; +50 minutes. I get it if its during peak times but our reservations are @ 6:00pm with the establishment being @ less than 50% capacity. Have brought issue up with management several times; their answer is to comp portion of meal. With all due respect, I don't want a comped meal, I want (& expect) superior service along with the excellent Thai cuisine. Been patronizing this establishment since its opening, won't be returning....

Food is always phenomenal. They have been open for a few years and have really mastered their business. Always packed but always delicious. Best Thai restaurant in north Florida. Try the Tom kah soup or the pad see ew.

Everything was very good but not great! That maybe my fault because my expectations was that this was the best Thai food in Jacksonville. Living most of my life in NY I guess I have been spoiled.

I had a late lunch with a friend at Blue Orchid. She had one of the noodle dishes and I had the garlic stir fry with broccoli, cauliflower and tofu. We started with the chicken noodle soup and split spring rolls. All was delicious as usual.

We think Blue Orchid is the best Thai restaurant in Jacksonville. We have had most of the curries and stir fries. For this trip, we split egg rolls and crab rangoons to start and then had phad Thai for our entrees. Although we prefer the other entree selections, once again we felt the food was excellent. The service was not quite a “5” but the restaurant was very crowded and wait staff was as attentive as possible given the circumstances.

We had an amazing lunch! The service was impeccable and the food was AMAZING! The portions were perfect for lunch and seating was prompt. Food came quickly but not so quickly that we couldn’t enjoy our appetizer and soups. After eating at Thai restaurants all over the country, I can say that Blue Orchids panang is easily the best I’ve ever tasted. Thank you so much! 10/10

The welcome hostess was a bit testy so I was put off at first but we were seated pretty quickly and in a nice corner so a little less noisy. From there service was really impeccable and prompt. Wine was good and they catered to my allergies very well with my whole table sharing in my meal in the end. We had the coconut shell curry and the curry duck. With fresh veggie and shrimp rolls. All very good and bursting with unusual flavors. We will return soon.

First, this is not my first time there. I love the place! Now some details. The owner is always attentive to his customers. Always. I saw him personally take care of a special request from a lady who was sitting at a table beside us. A rose for the ladies on Valentine's day was a nice touch. The staff are friendly. Always. The food is consistently good. Are you seeing a theme here? Every time we go it is nothing less than an intimate, friendly experience. They don't miss a beat. Even on one of the busiest days of the year for a restaurant. Awesome job!
