    This is our second time dining here and it remains outstanding! It's a short walk from our B&B which is wonderful because the restaurant is located near Memorial Park, a lovely place to stroll before or after. Greeting at front by two perfectly delightful hostesses starts off the evening, and then seating amongst the cultural treasures creates great feel. Michael B., our wait staff, is charming conversationalist as he takes our menu choices. We savored Chicken Satay to start - would love more of the cucumber salad - and then thoroughly enjoyed Drunken Noodle with beef and Masaman Curry with Shrimp. No dessert tonight. Very nice dinner after a long day.

    Excellent food again. Drinks are very good. Service is great. Finally got the seafood curry in the coconut shell. Curry was amazing, seafood too. Their spice levels are 0-4. I asked for a 5 and it was perfect. Super spicy but could eat the whole thing. Wife tried panang curry with tofu. Also terrific, though it doesn’t have the vegetables that mine and some of the other curries have.

    Blue Orchid Thai Cuisine- RiversideResponded on November 21, 2022Mr. Mowgli, Thank you for the great review. Most of our menu is customizable, if your wife would like veggies in her Panang, we will add them:):) Sean Blue Orchid Thai Cuisine

    Beautiful restaurant especially the outdoor area. THE freshest Fresh Roll I’ve ever had, the rice paper melted in my mouth instead of being chewy. Peanut sauce was perfect blend of salty, sweet and good texture. Tom Kha Soup was excellent but unfortunately it wasn’t temperature hot, maybe the coconut milk blended in was cold? Massaman Curry lacked depth of flavor but still good. Panang Curry was really great with full flavor. Fried rice was delicious and very light and fresh. Price was reasonable for the wonderful food, service and ambiance we enjoyed. We will be back for sure!

    Sat outside while a manager and server spent the entire meal dancing around us moving tables. Talking loudly about sitting other guests and about a large group. At one point for a solid 5 minutes the managers posterior was at my immediate left within an arms reach. It ruined our whole experience

    We were originally seated in a small dining room with 2 large parties. One of the parties was extremely loud so we asked to be reseated. The hostess accommodated us quickly to a lovely table on the patio. She was very welcoming, warm, and professional. Our waiter Adam was excellent and charming. One of the owners stopped by our table and we had a lovely chat about the food and the restaurant. He checked on us periodically throughout the meal. The food was outstanding and reasonably priced considering the quality and quantity; fresh and delicious! Definitely an extraordinary dining experience and very welcome addition to Riverside! As a former 20-year veteran of the food & beverage industry, the fact that every single staff member we encountered was truly pleasant and courteous speaks volumes. The tone and temperament of the owners and management was reflected in every level of service. What a joy to see!
