I really love this restaurant. There are not many places where you can get high quality ingredients and high quality food for such an affordable price. The ambiance leaves much to be desired but the food is out of this world! Tip: This restaurant is BYOB and takes time to prepare each meal. The Masaman chicken is delicious!

We don't live nearby but consider this place among the very best of Thai restaurants we have enjoyed over the years. Consequently, the 55 minute drive to get there is something we have always been willing to do -- the place is that good. We've been coming for years and regularly use dinner there as the way to get together... More

This restaurant is tucked away in a small shopping center, but do not let its simplicity fool you. The food is authentic, delicious, and our server was exceptional. My wife and I enjoyed a nice romantic dinner for less than $30, and could not finish the meal, which worked out very well for us as we were able to finish... More

I spent a month in Thailand a few years back and the food here brought back memories of my time there, it's one of those great restaurants that if you didn't know about it, you'd pass right by it without even knowing it was there because of it's location in a strip mall, but I'm telling you, if you enjoy...

What a lovely little BYOB bistro. In our party of 4 there were no disappointments. I had the pad Thai with a Thai cabbage and vegetable salad. Both were delicious and fresh. The waitress was attentive enough. The restaurant is small but cozy. Two in our party had the fresh flounder and the crab chowder. The chowder was very tasty... More

We read some reviews about this small Thai restaurant located in a stripmall in a small town outside Atlantic City. We are sure glad we did, because the food was excellent. The decor and atmosphere are very comfortable and homey with about seating for about 20. The Monday night we arrived early enough to be offered the $12.95 prix fixe... More

We have eaten here in the past with two very good friends. The food is like nothing I have eaten before. I was not familar with Thai food before eating here, but love it now. They have a smoked oyster salad that I just can't stop eating. The Duck Grand Mariner is exceptional. I love spicy and appreciate that there... More

For 10 years, Orchids has been a staple. The food is always made to order, is fresh, extremely tasty, and prepared to suit your taste. Going to Orchids is like dining in a friend of family's dining room. It lack pretense and fancy accoutrements and instead gives you a comfortable BYOB dining experience. The limited staff is still fast, efficient,... More

I've been to maybe 5 Thai restaurants around Atlantic County, and I'm surprised at how much better Orchids is! I loved every meal I've gotten there so far. I get a tall Thai iced tea every visit because it's that good. The green curry anything is delicious, and my favorite dessert (which you can't leave without having) is the sweet... More

Got the red curry chicken and ordered "Spicy Hot", not expecting much, heat-wise. Was pleasantly surprised to find it substantially hot, and included a touch of habanero--quite delicious if you ask me. Dish was great, but could have used a touch more basil in my opinion. Would definitely order again and will happily do so my next visit to this... More
