I visited the 'Blue Orchid' with family members for a birthday treat. Having originally been a child from this Village, I remember this being a dingy dark old pub / hotel. Its recently taken a wonderful transformation to a bright colorful restaurant. From a weed to a wonderful flower ! The food selection and portions are all very good. The... More

Here on the 18/3/17 with friends. There's not a huge amount of parking so give yourself a few minutes extra as you may need to park elsewhere. The welcome was staff and the service throughout was great but a little intrusive at times. They're a tad too keen to get more drinks down your neck. We all had menu C... More

We have visited before and the food is consistently good. Everything we had had so much flavour I haven't enjoyed a meal so much in a long time. The presentation of the food is always lovely with beautifully carved vegetable decorations. The waitresses are so friendly and polite and make you feel very welcome.

We visited with friends having pre-booked our table. We had set meal B for four people and although the food was delicious we were all disappointed with the portion size. At the end of our main and looking forward to dessert and coffees we were asked if we could vacate our table and sit at the bar to make room... More

This is by far the best Thai food in Bucks if not further! Having been to Thailand 3 times and having been to this restaurant over 20 times, I can honestly say the food is authentic, mouth watering delicious and right up my street! I am so surprised to see this restaurant quite far down on trip advisor for restaurants... More

Visited on a Friday night. Lots of commuters out for an evening meal. Parking is a bit of a problem. However, the food was excellent and well presented by attentive waitresses. Very enjoyable. This is a Thai food restaurant, but if you prefer, they serve Indian food in a separate restaurant.

Popped in for a Thurs eve dinner(thai menu). I have probably eaten here 20 times over the past 2 years and never had a bad meal! Service is great, food is good quality and reasonably priced, house white wine is good too. If you like thai, you really cant go wrong choosing here.
