The reviews don’t lie, this is a cracking little restaurant and if you really love Thai food, then come here and you won’t be disappointed, because it is beautiful delicious food.

A block west of Hagley Park on Riccarton, great outside patio and two levels of cozy dining room. Owner operated with great service and terrific food. Fun atmosphere. The crispy duck is as good as I’ve ever had and the curries have nice flavor. Highly recommend. Reservations are a good idea, it can be busy.

Had a great night out at thai orchid Saturday 17th Feb. We went with staff menu recommendations and were so happy we did. The crispy duck and mussaman beef cheeks were next level. I've traveled extensively throughout Thailand and feel thai orchid brings an authentic feel to Christchurch. The thai chef, staff and daycore all made for a great experience. We will be back.

This is such a fantastic place to come for dinner! The Last Saturday of the month is 'Latino party night' and the live music creates such a great atmosphere! People were even dancing towards the end, and this is not even mentioning the delicious food, very authentic Thai cuisine. Our big table had the best night out, thank you to the friendly staff at Thai Orchid, we'll be back :)

Very good food. We had Tom kha and Tom yum. Both were good and original. The room is small and with groups the acoustics make it very noisy.
