THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Thai Orchid Restaurant Review

: Purple-and-white silk orchids perch on the tables, and the lengthy menu extends to such specialties as flaming chicken, barbecued Thai style with a piquant sauce, and poo-ob, steamed crab and shrimp with glass noodles, ginger, celery and Napa cabbage. We also like the Thai toast---deep-fried canapes topped with pork and shrimp---the chicken with spicy basil sauce, the pineapple fried rice, the chanburi noodles with crab, bean sprouts and egg, and several of the fragrant curries. This casual restaurant is all right for a quiet night out, but we don’t come here when we’re feeling festive, largely because the service is indifferent at best.
