The Tom Kha soup was absolutely horrendous and the spring rolls sub par. Lincoln deserves better Thai food. Avoid the same mistake of believing the good reviews and skip this restaurant!

My friends had drunken noodles which were excellent. I had the blue crab with rice, very good except WAY too much rice, like 2x too much. Drinks took very long time to receive each time & they weren't that busy. Been to Thailand several times, not sure I call this real authentic Thai food, but it's very good for here.

This is our favorite restaurant in Lincoln. My boyfriend always gets the Crying Tiger (and always loves it) and I tried the Blue Crab Fried Rice (delicious!) We love the atmosphere, the food is always good, and the service is fine. I also recommend Butter Chicken and the yellow curry.

Atmosphere is pleasant. Parking is challenging. I think that if you are looking for a something different this could be a nice option. . Service was not very good on this particular visit and we needed to send one dish back due to lack of sauce.

The Blue Orchid has great Thai food. I recommend the Pad-Thai or the drunken noodles. Friendly staff and convenient location.

Coming from Malaysia and often a visitor to Thailand, Thai food ulis nothing new to us This restaurant is located at the car park area and not visible when driving. We ordered Tom Yum and Mussels for starter. Tom Yum is very disappointing. Not spicy and sour at all. Mussels is good. Mains are blue crab fried rice, beef, orchid... More

We ate at the Blue Orchid last night for a birthday celebration. Our group had a variety of dishes, and everyone seemed pleased with their selection. Our waitress was very pleasant and attentive.
