Reviewed 15 August 2016

As a relative newcomer to Portland, I have had a lot of mediocre Thai food. Even some places that are known for "great" Thai have been hit or miss. Tonight we had a wonderful dinner at White Orchid. We just happened to be in the area and will likely return even if it is a 25 minute drive for us. The squid salad was crisp, well seasoned. The squid was either grilled or steamed so it was light, fresh and delicious. I had chicken and shrimp with crispy basil and my husband had a lamb special. Both were well prepared, flavorful and not greasy. I look forward to trying other dishes.

This was previously a Thai Orchard, which was fine...but I was happy to see that the restaurant has been changed to non-franchised dining. The food is delicious, with some fun new meal options. Try it out!

This restaurant has been under a different name for years, it was OK and always a good place to go when you wanted take out or a consistent meal. Now it is under new management and it is BETTER THAN BEFORE. The food seems to have better preparation and thought going into it and it remains a good value for the price. Most of the help has stayed and they are great and very thoughtful. If you haven't been here in a while and wonder about the new name don't worry. It is still a great weekend casual place to dine in or take out.

We have gotten take-out many times here, and have also eaten in the restaurant. The food is always consistent and good. The service is attentive, without being intrusive. Have tried many things on the menu, and have yet to be disappointed.

Would recommend...

** This restaurant used to be the Thai Orchid, and the menu has changed a little, but it is still really good.

The White Orchid restaurant has magically appeared in the location below Bugatti's that had previously been occupied by the Thai Orchid restaurant. The furniture is all new and the walls sport a fresh coat of paint, but most of the decor is the same as is the ambiance. The menu carries many of the same items, prepared in the same way, but the choices have been pared down a little. The staff is just as gracious as the old Thai Orchid staff had been and apparently the executive chef is the same as it had been in the earlier restaurant. The food is the same delicious Thai cuisine that had been a sparkling feature of the previous incarnation. Portions are generous. All around, a pleasant and relaxing dining experience.
