Austin was our server…excellent service even though we realized they were short staff. Servers also have to be their own bartender, so he was hustling all evening…and he also seen
Seemed to be the most experienced and helpful to other servers. The Blue Orchid is one of our favorites-and Austin is best ne the reasons we enjoy our dining experience there.

Amazing food as always - got the Chicken Panang. Would highly recommend trying everything on their menu. Our waiter was Ben & he was fantastic, prompt on drinks, remembered our names, & very friendly. Will definitely be returning.

Meal took 35 minutes to deliver. Entree was described as spicy hot and was not. Meals were warm and tasty though the lamb seemed overcooked. May return as I realize that restaurants at this time are struggling to be fully staffed

This was our first time eating at Blue Orchid. We had heard good things but were left disappointed overall. Service very slow. The restaurant was very very loud. The food came quickly. The Thai rolls appetizer was delicious. When our food came, I received the wrong food and it didn't have a ton of flavor. It didn't seem much better than fast take out asian take out. I don't think we will be back.

Google maps is not real good at leading you to the front door of this restaurant, so get directions. It is worth finding.

The food and service were both very good. Prices very reasonable.

Not crowded but quite busy. It took 10 minutes to attend you when you enter the restaurant. Busy with more take out. In-done needs some attention.

Seemed the waiter should have poured out wine; maybe he was new but he seemed unsure of his duties.

I had a reservation for 6:15 pm and we did not get seated until 6:45 pm. We then waited a half hour before a waiter came and got our drink order. We did not get our food until an hour and a half after we sat down. Surely you can hire more staff? You had to people working as hosts and two waiters. Seems like an overkill on the hosting part and not enough help waiting tables. I realize this was Mother's Day and you were busy. Plan ahead for larger special days! I was disappointed in the wait time and my family from out of town was very irritated by the long wait.

Beautiful ambiance and wonderful service. The food was divine. I had Thai Rolls and Green Curry. The Thai rolls were savory and the perfect crispness. The Green Curry was actually quite mild but very tasty.

We enjoyed patio dining with our group of 6 this weekend. The food was excellent and servings were large. Two of us had dietary restrictions and ordering with confidence was a breeze. We’ll take our friends and family again!

We came to the restaurant with a reservation - were seated - and no one ever came over. After 15 minutes with no one checking on us. No water and no sign of anyone - we left. We dine here all the time and the service continues to decline. Very disappointed

Good Friends, Good Food!
Being that this was New Years Eve, the Kitchen was hectic and food came out slower than what was hoped. We reserved an earlier time to try and beat the rush. Server Austen did a Great Job! Overall we enjoyed our time.

Had the old favorite--green curry with shrimp and thin noodles, a glass of wine. Food came to the table nice and hot (personal pet peeve when it's not) and just as the two diners ordered. Server went above and beyond as always. Tended to special requests--split wine and put food in take home box (diner is clumsy) without any hesitation.

My sister and I were sharing memories on what would have been our Dad's 100th birthday. The meal was superb as always, but the service particularly stood out. Our server went well beyond what would be excellent service to insure that everything was great. She picked up on idle remarks and responded to them as if they were requests. There was no problem with allowing us to split a glass of wine. When I suggested that the strawberry on my dessert be given to my sister as I was allergic, she presented my sister with a gorgeous little dessert glass with strawberries in it.

My sister became a fan of curry because of the Blue Orchid's green curry and she was lamenting through the meal that she had not been here recently. My silver noodle salad was very good, but I do think one shrimp is a bit stingy. I believe I've thought that in the past as well so I was under no illusions when I ordered. The beauty of the place is without parallel. Safety precautions were rigorously followed. Yea, Blue Orchid.

Some of the best Thai we’ve ever had! Service was amazing, we sat outside on the patio around 7 pm...it was perfect, shady and breezy! Drinks were yummy too. If I were local I’d be back regularly. They did a great job with being COVID safe; inside and outside the tables were well spaced, disinfected after each party, and staff were wearing masks.

Food was very good, staff friendly. We chose vegetarian options of spring rolls followed by entries of pad thai and sweet pineapple stir fry. Located in the old historic Grande Manse building on the edge of the hay market area. Comfortable dining room, but could use a little updating. Small free parking lot on south side of the building or park on the street or nearby public garage.

It was frustrating that they gave us a 90 minute window at our table, and 25 of those minutes we were waiting for our food. We didn’t have time to order desert, but would have otherwise.
