I highly recommend trying the Thai cuisine served at this restaurant. The food was fresh, flavorful and the service was on target. We went for lunch and reservations are recommended.

Iv been here often and normally really enjoy my meals. Saturday must have been an off night for the kitchen. My
Soup was cold and the Pad Thai had the flavor profile of buttered noodles.

Excellent meal with attentive but not overbearing service. Thai food was excellent and prepared with the specified hotness level. Very good!

Wednesday night get together and restaurant was busy but not overbooked. Waitress was very friendly and attentive. Calamari done just right, not rubbery. Money bags appetizer was slightly over cooked with one burnt on bottom which is reason for only four stars. Main dishes were all well presented and delicious. Always a favorite restaurant for me.

Food was great but service was unusually slow. Not sure if they were shorthanded or it was our server. Drinks took forever and the food even took longer.

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience this past Saturday vending. . Our server, Christine, was pleasant and knowledgeable about ingredients. Our drinks were excellent and served in a timely fashion. The menu was extensive. The food was well prepared and very tasty.

It is our hope that White Orchids’ sister restaurant, Notch, will be able to up their game. After all, they have a great role model.

Highly disappointed and will never go back. Sat on the lovely outdoor patio looking forward to a birthday dinner but the service was horrific. The first sign should have been the length of time it took to get our drinks and that the server needed to make apologies. We spent the next hour watching table after table be seated, eat their meals and leave. After a half hour, our server lamely said she had checked on our order and it would be out shortly. After 45 minutes, she said the manager would be out to speak with us. Finally, over one hour later, the poor excuse for a manager came to our table and admitted they had dropped the ball. Our order had never been entered. He said he didn't want to come over until our food was actually in front of us. Sure, by then we were happy to have something to eat and foolishly accepted the 30% discount he offered. In retrospect, all three of our entrees should have been comped. I'm so mad at myself for not speaking up. The manager made no attempts during the whole time we waited to make amends. He put it on his waitstaff. Pathetic. This was a birthday to remember but not in a good way.

Our overall experience was good. We have been coming to white orchid for a long time now, but both my wife and I felt the food was not up to the typical standards we know and love. Between our appetizers and main course, both were very under whelming. We don’t know if it was an off night or a new chief, this isn’t going to stop us from coming in , but if the quality is the same the next time we do come in it may be our last.

We always love White Orchids for a special occasion, and celebrated our 31st anniversary on this night for dinner. Our meals were outstanding, enjoying the Crab Fried Rice and Seafood PadThai. We started out with a delicious lightly fried Calamari as an appetizer, and the portion was huge! We ended the meal sharing a complimentary coconut rice and mango dessert. Perfect way to end our anniversary meal. Shout out to Becky for being a wonderful hostess, and our server, Courtney for taking great care of us. It was a perfect anniversary night! Very enjoyable evening.

I would not recommend White Orchids at this time. Dined there on Aug 12th for our 41st anniversary and were deeply, deeply disappointed.
Order the Pad Thai as my entree with seafood as the addition to my entree. The Pad Thai was either under-cooked or over-cooked. It was like eating leather shoelaces. So very, very chewy.
The seafood was almost non-existent. 3 shrimp and some lump crab meat. The little bit of crab was very tasty but the shrimp too was like rubber.
We did tell our waitress of our displeasure but asked her only to mention it to the manager after we left as we did not feel like making our anniversary dinner any more of a disappointment.
Even though this was our third visit at White Orchids for an anniversary celebration, my wife and I are undecided whether we will dine at White Orchids again. If we decide not to dine there again, we will not be hesitant to share our experience with others.

We had a two-year-old with us out on the patio, so I’m hoping noise level was not too high for other diners. But dinner was delicious and very enjoyable. Waitstaff was very attentive; besides being delicious, food was hot. Baby was given candle to blow out on her ice cream. Loved it!

Absolutely some of the best Thai cuisine in the Lehigh Valley area! Nice size portions with perfect flavors and spiciness. Our waitress was not at all engaging or very prompt with our needs. Pleasant atmosphere Overall, a good dining experience.

The service and the food are wonderful at White Orchids. Our waitress gave us plenty of time to order but kept an eye on us so she knew when to show up. I had the Massaman curry with chicken and it was perfect. I do not like a lot of spice and it was prepared perfectly. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys high quality, well-prepared Asian food.

In the past, we have had several very positive experiences at White Orchid. However, on July 3, 2019 -- not so much. The kitchen was incredibly slow, so it took two hours for dinner for two. The food was great, or maybe it seemed greater than it was because we had waited so long! Our waitress was very good, and came to the table several times explaining that food would be out soon. Frankly, we felt sorry for her, as we realized these delays were not her fault. Not sure we'll go back.

Overall a good experience. Excellent service from a waitress who knew her wines. My mango duck was one of the best meals I’ve had. However, the seafood on my wife’s salad had no seasoning, tasting like it was boiled. So, a split decision, but since I’m writing the review, I’ll give it an overall 4.

Everything was fantastic. We sat outside - the umbrellas were up and the weather was perfect. Our server was great and the food was amazing as usual. White Orchids is by far a favorite! Can’t wait for Notch to open too!!
