The last reviewer said it was authentic Thai food. I don't know if that's true, but it was very good. The service was OK for a Friday night, but they weren't very busy. I guess that means it was prepared to order. I recommend the Ginerine Shrimp without bell peppers. Bell peppers are bad for you!

We spent an overnight in Hickory and looked on Trip Advisor for a dinner recommendation. After reading the reviews of Thai Orchid, we went there. The food was excellent and authentic (we have been to Thailand several times and know how food should taste). The portions were larger than expected and the service excellent, too. We ordered a spiciness of... More

We have our favorite Thai restaurants at home, where they know us and our tastes (when we say Thai hot, we mean it). So, we were prepared for dumbed-down Americanized fare - but, dinner started off with a bang, beef larb that was very spicy, as requested, yet the heat did not overpower the tasty Thai spices in the dish...

Most delicious pad Thai chicken and spring roll with orange sauce I've ever had. Friendly and efficient service. Lunch portions were a perfect size for my mom and me.

Convenient location, near major shopping. Easy in and out parking. Handicapped accessible. Greeted immediately and seated immediately. Waitress was pleasant and took our orders quickly. We were there for lunch, menu was three pages. Food took about twenty minutes to come to table, but it was OK as it tasted like it was freshly prepared. My husband had shrimp and... More

This restaurant is often overlooked and is a find in the Thai cuisine of Hickory. The service was good, as was the food. I had Shrimp Red Curry and my husband had the fried rice. We had an appetizer that included lettuce wraps and spring rolls. Both were very tasty. This place is never crowed and is great for a... More

We live about 25 minutes away and eat there about every couple of months, mostly dinners, couple of lunches. Parking is available and free. We love this place. The portions are generous and taste good! I enjoy the spicy meals, a lot. I have had rice dishes, curry dishes and beef or chicken dinners. Of course we like some things... More
