    We have often been to Blue Orchid and have enjoyed the food and atmosphere. On Monday evening, the spring rolls, the soup and desserts were quite tasty. The entree was not up to their usual standards, but all else was great--excellent service, charming atmosphere, and low noise. This is the first time we've been there on a Monday, so maybe the usual chef was not on duty.

    Our waiter was so helpful in helping us choose the best entrees. His recommendations were very very good, even with the selection of a sweet wine to end our meal with.

    Food was excellent as was the service. The front door was stuck and appeared to be locked. A customer in front of us left because they couldn’t get it open. Called the restaurant and a staff member let us in.

    Beware! We love this place so that the service is really at an all time low. A 5:15 pm reservation should be sufficient time to make a 7 pm Lied show but we were rushed since it took so long to get food. Waiter never checked back for another cocktail or water. The food was good but not sure it makes up for lack of timely service.

    Long time patrons of the Blue Orchid but our last experience was not very good. Took forever to get our food and when it came it wasn't good; cold, overcooked, no sauce.

    It was a Saturday evening and the temperature outside was in the 80’s. We found a shady table outside. Our waiter suggested appetizer with the green sauce and he was right, it was delicious. The Pad Thai and a green side salad were also good. I hope to go back and try other items on the menu.

    Service was extremely slow even though the place was mostly empty. The food took forever to arrive and was a huge disappointment. The sauces were watery, and key advertised ingredients were missing in all of the dishes. This used to be one of our favorite restaurants, but not any more.

    Four of us dined at Blue Orchid recently and as always, the decor and the service were excellent. My husband and I ordered the green curry with tofu and the dish was prepared very well. Our friends shared the blue crab fried rice and also enjoyed their dishes.

    The menu selection was adequate and the food was excellent. The service was slow given that there were not many guests but the waitperson was apologetic and checked back in with us. We did like the fact that the restaurant was quiet and I know even when it is busy the noise level promotes conversation rather than shouting. We would return again.

    Are you looking for a beautiful restaurant with great food, atmosphere, and kind staff? Look no further than Blue Orchid. As we arrived we were politely greeted by the staff. As we sat we were given direction on the most popular/tasty menu choices (which they won’t steer you wrong). It’s a formal dinning restaurant with large food portions and quiet surroundings. It’s the perfect place for a date, anniversary, or just any regular outing. You also have the option to sit either inside or outside. If you love curry, I recommend the yellow curry, you can’t go wrong.
