I never knew Thai Orchid existed until a friend recommended it; and with it being under 2 miles from my home, I had to give it a try! I’ve been here numerous times and each time has been amazing. I even order to go when I just want to chill at home with good food.
I’ve tried the orange chicken which is decent, but they need to be more giving with the sauce since there’s not really enough on the plate covering the entire battered chicken pieces.
And I’ve tried the evil jungle noodles with chicken, which is now my go to for every future visit because I know it’s going to be delicious every time. The curry sauce is amazing (they sell it on its own by the way for like $4.50 a small container). It has just the right amount of heat with a rating of 1 for me, and the big bowl is only $9.50 for dinner. Can’t really beat that cause I usually have leftovers to take home too!
The drinks are so-so for the price. I haven’t really gone during happy hour so I don’t know what type of specials they have. I wasn’t thrilled with that drink in the photo though. Don’t get me wrong, it tasted good since it was fresh kiwi, but it wasn’t even filled close to the top and cost a fortune. So, don’t go for the drinks, go for the food!
I have to eat here at least once or twice a month since I crave that delicious yellow curry sauce. So if you’re in town and want some good Thai food, head on over to Thai Orchid Restaurant in Downtown Vancouver, WA.
