Was a good dinner but I'm not sure about it being awarded the 2nd best Thai restaurant in Australia.

Just finished eating the meal and felt compelled to write the review straight away. We ordered green chicken curry, masaman beef and coconut rice (Takeaway). Absolutely delicious. Sign on the door said this place finished 2nd in the best Thai restaurant in Australia award and I can believe it. I wanted to go back and see whether they would consider... More

I have been going to Blue Orchid for 16 years and it has always been my favorite Thai in Caloundra. Though this time it wasn't quite on point. Less busy than previous. Service was a bit off. Asked for meal order before being asked for drinks. Drinks still reasonably priced. Had chicken spring rolls for entree ( suspect they were... More

Great food! We've eaten in and also used their takeaway service and the food has always been good - with a reasonable price tag. I particularly like the red curry duck, but it is all good.

It was a well serviced restaurant with a good selection n the menu. Food was hot, tasty and to order. Good wine and beer selection. Tables are a little small for 4. But, we enjoyed our meal and price was reasonable.

Whenever I'm on the Sunshine Coast I always come back here. It's casual dining and a simple setting but the Thai food is fresh and full of flavor.

Had 4 mains and 2 rice as take-away meals to feed 4 and all of us (2 adults and 2 kids) thought the meals were of excellent quality. We had a Thai green chicken curry and 3 other dishes all were fantastic. Would recommend to all.

Happy visit to Blue Orchid. We were put off at first because we couldn't see in to the restaurant from the street but decided to go with other reccomendations. Inside it is comfortable, but maybe a bit dark, with tables quite close together. Thai fish cakes were tasty and obviously freshly made. The green prawn curry was superb but probably... More

Lovely food, good atmosphere, the service was the reason for 4 rather than 5 stars. Service suffered because they were busy - asked if we wanted dessert and then forgot to bring the dessert menu. Wine very reasonably priced by the glass - how refreshing, normally feel ripped off if I buy just a glass or two. We enjoyed the... More

Don't be fooled but the tucked away location, the food here is consistently exceptional. Great Thai food.
