White orchid continues to be one of my favorite restaurants in the area. They never disappoint, and Courtney is a fantastic server. We have never found a dish we did not love, and I would recommend them highly to anyone.

We always have a good meal at White Orchid. This time however I didn't like the Chicken Satay. I found the chicken overcooked and the peanut sauce was just laying on the top. Not how it normally looks or tastes. We didn't tell the waiter and ate it anyway but this is the only time we ever we disappointed in anything at this restaurant. We

The staff is outstanding, friendly and attentive. All our food choices were well-prepared and delicious. A great menu for those of us on gluten-free diets. Our waitstaff was very informed and helpful in explaining menu options and providing options for various heat levels and customizing our dinner choices. Will definitely be back!!

A very nice place for a meal. The martinis were excellent, we had the mango and Thai lemon. The fried calamari might have even been the best that I ever had, tender and crispy coating. The main diner was delish. We will be going back again.

Really great meal. Wife and I had an errand to run after church and didn't remember White Orchid until we were on the way there from Bethlehem. Remembered it from looking at the OpenTable app. Such a great spot tucked in the back of the mall. My wife and I spent about 80 bucks before tip for an app, one drink and two main courses. Food is always prepared just the way you want it with some add on spices if you want it kicked up a tad. I had the salmon special in curry which was wonderful. Wife had some pad Thai thing with shrimp.. I have no idea but she loved it. They will let you sample a beer to make sure you like it. I've been there several times and its always consistently good. The only thing I would change... and its minor... they had rock music playing in the background which killed the atmosphere a little bit so they could change that to something more appropriate but I'm old so I understand. Still, I recommend this place hands down.

We love this place. I have dietary restrictions and not only are they accommodating but both managers come over to me, recognize me and always make sure that the waiter/ress and chef are very aware of my restrictions! to boot, the food is delicious! They'll make it spicy if you like it that way or mild if you don't!

A small group of us visited White Orchid for the first time in order to celebrate my sister's 30th birthday, and we were very pleased. White Orchid has a trendy atmosphere with friendly staff members and a fairly large menu. There was a wide variety of appetizers and entrees to choose from, along with a suitable beverage selection. The food was fantastic and the upscale presentation was appreciated by my family and I. I would definitely recommend White Orchid for a date or special occasion.

Food was delicious, as always. The service was very slow. The waitress had a very apathetic attitude. She was not going to rush or walk a step faster for anyone or any reason. After asking for the check, took 7 minutes for her to bring it and another 10 minutes later I had to find the manager up front and ask him to run my credit card because she never came back. It was not that busy it just seemed like she was not interested.

Waited 25 minutes for drink order, finally walked over and picked up drinks sitting at bar. Food came 50 minutes after seated. Waitress blamed owners for not showing up for shift. She then avoided us except to bring check. Food was decent at an average price point, but we are one and done because of service.

Dined with my sister for her birthday, after not visiting this restaurant for years and I remembered why I haven’t gone back. We ordered some appetizers and they were just not impressive and overly expensive for what they were serving. Spring rolls were good but the sauce seemed like jiffy peanut butter mixed with cream squirted into a dish. We were given a legit half of a head of ice burg with our lettuce wraps. I had to cut off the stem/middle of the Head so that I could separate the leaves and it just made a mess. They should be separated already before serving. No flavor and not spicy, super liquidity so when put into the wrap it leaked out. The rice that came with it was AWFUL . Corn fritters were okay, same liquidity sauce, fried so hard to mess up. Chicken satay had the same squirted out peanut sauce all over it ALL over it. Still though not much flavor, it seemed like everything we got had the same sauce on it, either a clear sauce or peanut sauce. We got a bottle of wine. I don’t know we just weren’t impressed with the service or the food. We won’t be back. $85 not well spent.

We enjoyed the casual and cozy atmosphere. Our server, Steven, was efficient and just the right amount of attentive. My mojito was liquid gold; White Orchids doesn’t do a light handed pour, that’s for sure. The spring rolls were light and crispy, with a sweet dipping sauce and the Pad See’ew had just the right amount of heat when ordered “medium”. If you enjoy dining al fresco, WO offers outdoor seating too!

My husband and I enjoyed our dinner very much. The food was delicious (loved the fried ice cream dessert). The only disappointment during this visit was our server. During our first visit to this restaurant, our server was very attentive. She thoroughly explained the menu/spice heat and checked on us just at the right times to see if we needed anything else. This time, our server seemed to have forgotten about us. We would have definitely each ordered a second beverage if she had come over before we had finished our meal. A large party did come into the restaurant that she help tend to, but she definitely didn’t tend to us as she should have. Just one time after us receiving our meal (but before finishing) would have been nice. Other than that one server experience, this is a nice restaurant with great food. Will return.

We went there as we heard good things. Overall the food was good and reasonably priced. They were a bit busy but we waited about 10 mintues after being seated before our server even came over. We ordered soup as an app and it took about 25 minutes for the soup to come and we were not checked in on during that time frame giving us any update. Overall, the food was good but the service was not what i would expect. It was our first time there and not sure if we will go back.

Without a doubt, the best thai food in the area. Food is consistently fresh and light, and I love the option to add chunky vegetables to my pad thai. The money bags and corn fritters are also a favorite of my family - perfectly fried and fill of flavor! The menu also offers countless vegetarian options. Service is excellent and the atmosphere is relaxing. One of my favorite restaurants in the Lehigh valley!

As always, our meals were excellent. I had Lobster Pad Thai and my husband the Chicken Pad Thai. Both delicious! We also shared the pot stickers, also delicious. Our waitress recommended a Derby Spritzer when I asked for a drink that was refreshing. It most certainly was. Can't wait to go back and have another one.
