Thai food attempts to balance the five fundamental flavors: hot, sour, sweet, salty, and victory. Score a win for your mouth with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Thai-fusion cuisine at The Orchid.
Serving up eclectic Thai cuisine, The Orchid boasts an extensive menu of modern and traditional culinary creations. Stop in to sample scrumptious noodle and rice dishes made with a choice of tofu, chicken, beef, or shrimp, such as the kai kua with noodles, crushed peanuts, bean sprouts, lettuce, and scallions ($8–$10). Or, nosh on panang curry ($10–$12)—a spicy red-curry coconut sauce with bell peppers and kaffir lime leaves—and titillate the exotic taste buds of a temerarious tongue. Diners can commence conversations about the artistic merits of Oreos: The Movie with a duck roll, an appetizer of roasted bird meat, cucumber, carrots, and green onions swathed in a flour tortilla and served with hoisin sauce. Kick back amid the relaxing, contemporary décor, enjoy a drink at the self-serve wine bar, order up some deliciously raw fish at the sushi bar, and entertain friends with a slew of teary-eyed, wasabi-related dares.
- This place is a winner, from atmosphere to service. It has the kind of innovative, well-executed cuisine that will satisfy those seeking something more challenging. You won’t get large plates of Thai food that will leave you plenty for lunch the next day, but there is real artistry at work both in the décor and the kitchen, particularly the presentation of the food. – Pete Tittl, Bakersfield.com
- Everything I've tried here has been delicious! They have a great wine & dessert selection as well! Try the macaroni & cheese at least once.. I don't eat lobster, but it was incredible in this dish! – Lola LaRue, Urbanspoon
