We started off with some refreshing drinks from the bar and our waitress recommended the wings as an appetizer...such a great choice. The wings were very tasty and crispy. Me and my husband both got seafood pad thai dishes and they were the best Pad thai I have ever had; so light and delicious! We also got the mango sticky rice for dessert and it was by far the best mango I have ever had and the sticky rice and sauce that was on top was so complimentary to the mango. Highly recommend this place!!

We usually enjoy dining at White Orchid however this visit was not as good as usual. Our appetizer came out cold and then we waited 45 minutes to an hour until our meals were brought out. We had to rush to eat it to catch the movie we were going to see. Hopefully it will be better next time.

The food and service is always great. A good choice if you are out with friends or date night. Not a place for romantic ambiance though.
They have the best masaman curry and calamari in this area.

We are rarely disappointed by a meal at White Orchids. This occasion was no exception. The owner always checks in with our table but isn't intrusive. The servers work as a seamless team. The food is always excellent, even when we ask for the less spicy versions. The cocktails are wonderful as well. Love the mango martini.

I've eaten here a few times and like the food but would like to see some improvements - larger shrimp, more protein vs. rice. The food was tasty but for the price, I think the quality should be a bit better.

The previous few times I have eaten here were awesome. Sadly this time was a disappointment. The pork belly appetizer was so overcooked, I could barely chew the pork. Pork belly should practically melt in your mouth. The crispy haddock was also overcooked and tough. I don't know how you make a fish tough and chewy, but somehow they managed. I can say the mango martini was awesome.

The decor of the restaurant was just ok. Some of us liked it and others did not. I had the pineapple fried rice and it was terrible. The rice was tasteless. The chicken was dry and tasteless. The shrimp was rubbery. The only good thing was the pineapple. Very disappointed!!!!

Made a reservation for Birthday Lunch and requested nice table. First time trying Wild Orchids. Arrived right on time. Was told would have to wait 15 minutes. Unacceptable. Manager called. Seated us at table in empty bar area. Disappointing, and let him know this. No offer to make up for it. Very loud "club music" the whole time. Food was expensive and mediocre. Only beers on draught had extremely high alcohol level. Not interested in 10% beer at lunch on a work day. Will not be back. Will not recommend. Our server however was was pretty good.

I thought it was very expensive for what we ate. I had the haddock, which was 2 pieces, but tasted like any "fish neither of us had been there before so she was very patient and explained the various dishes to us. The restaurant is beautiful; unfortunately we were seated next to a couple who brought their 2 or 3 year old who just screamed and screeched through the entire visit. The parents just let the child go on and on like that. It was very disrupting to our meal and all of those around us. I guess the parents are used to a screaming kid and weren't phased by it at all.

A little disappointed by this trip to white orchid. This Is a favorite place for me and one of the best Thai restaurants in the valley. I generally have a good experience here. Today I was in for a business lunch and the waitress clearly forgot about us. Our food arrived cold and she never came to check on us once our food made it to the table. I doubt the food would have come if I didn’t ask for it. At the end, she made an excuse but didn’t really apologize.

Don’t go anywhere else for Thai!

We had our one month anniversary here. I’ve been going here religiously for years and wanted my husband to try his first Thai cuisine at White Orchid. He absolutely loved it, he tried his meal in medium temp while mine was mild as usual. Our appetizer was delicious and our main entrees were outstanding, only problem was that after my husband finished his plate he was looking for more. Traditional plated serving. Fills me up nicely. If you have a man that likes to eat, order two entrees.

I got the scallops red curry. Disappointed that it was a mix of bay and sea scallops. Bay are not my favorite. Also was told the red curry would be medium. Was more mild, although still very tasty. My husband orders the drunken noodles hot. He said it wasn't, but again tasty.

We used to go to White Orchid when it first opened and we always had a good experience. We always like to try new places so we haven’t been at White Orchid in several years. We decided to go back and we thoroughly enjoyed the food and atmosphere once again. Our server, Elise was excellent - attentive, pleasant, and efficient. We will definitely return.
