Had a very nice lunch at the Thai Orchid. It is upstairs by the downtown shopping center and it has a little view of the downtown area. The meals were reasonably priced and there are many selections for lunch. The serving sizes are adequate for lunch time. The service was also not rushed even though it was lunch time. Of course the Thai dishes were excellent but not very spicy unless you ask for it. Good lunch place if you are tired of burgers and salads.

I, personally, order the Pad Thai Talay here, and enjoy it very much. The staff is ALWAYS very nice and extremely attentive. Great place to eat!

Good food, quickly served, nice view at window table, appreciated the quiet appropriate service. More locals need to visit.

I have been here multiple times in the last year - it's conveniently located and often I have friends or family who want to move here. I seem to always "give it another chance", not wanting to think that it's really that bad - but it's that bad. They use almost all frozen ingredients and it's obvious, the flavoring is not that great and although the prices are reasonable it's generally not worth it to eat the food. Last time I was there we tried some of the appetizers and were completely disappointed. The only appetizer not deep fried were the veggie spring rolls, but they had absolutely no flavor. Everything else is deep fried including the pot stickers, which you wouldn't think would be. They literally made my mom choke. That was definitely the last time I am going there!

Wow! Love this place. Great tasting fresh food, enchanting upstairs view of Salem and super friendly staff.
I always get #9 on the lunch menu -Red Curry.
Alexis was wonderful.
I'm no expert on Thai food, but everyone we take here loves it too.
Two big thumbs up!
