    Lovely interior; well trained very pleasant staff; food was very good but felt the temperature of our food could have been hotter. Dinner for two (plenty of food - we shared two entrees and had rice left over) was very nicely put into separate portions when we indicated we were sharing. One appetizer, two entrees, one glass of wine total was $60. without tip. Will definitely return and recommend.

    Our experience was amazing from the moment we walked in the door! We were greeted by the host Yancy McQueen who made sure we were well taken care of, and he was very attentive! He answered all of our questions and made several suggestions off of the menu! The food was amazing, and it's authentic Thailand Cuisine and VERY TASTEFUL. My husband was WOWW About the Crab Rangoons, and the sweet &sour stir fry, and the Pepper Steak stir fry was amazing! We will be back, and it's next to my favorite park in JAX (MEMORIAL PARK), So I definitely will be back for happy hour after my walk!

    The location is beautiful - the outdoor space will be heaven when it is a tad cooler! Interior and bar all very nice! We were welcomed immediately and our hostess took us to our table, spoke with our party and shared information regarding the space - unique experience! Our wait staff was extremely knowledgeable and gave us great suggestions. Adam shared information regarding the Thai chefs. We enjoyed the spring rolls and fried naked shrimp as appetizers - the sauce on the shrimp appetizer was so good. All of our main dishes were made to the spice level requested - everything was hot and delicious. The wonton soup is so simple but this is one of the best we have had. Drink menu deserves more exploration - matcha margarita was an interesting combination of matcha and tequila - very nice. Dessert was sticky rice and mango - perfect ending to a fantastic meal. We never felt rushed - we were able to enjoy the ambience and food. Have eaten at the beaches location for lunch - will definitely recommend the riverside location to friends.

    Blue Orchid is a delicious Thai food restaurant. They have a great selection of dishes. Food is prepared well and they give large portions. Full bar including Thai beer - Singha! Yeah. Michael is a great waiter!!! Ask for him. It is very popular especially at the new Riverside location, so a reservation with Open Table is a must. They have outside seating, but it is not practical until weather cools off.
