I've been eating here for years, so some of the negative reviews really surprise. I have always found the staff at Thai Orchid to be more than gracious and attentive. They are always happy to greet you with a smile. As far as the food goes, I believe most of the dishes to be at least average or above. I definitely favor some dishes over others, but I can say that about most restaurants. I have a rotation of 4 Thai restaurants I go to depending on what I’m in the mood to eat, as some do certain dishes better than others. The dishes I order at Thai Orchid are definitely above average. I have eaten at most of the Thai restaurants in Charlotte, and I eat a lot of Thai food when I travel, so I think I have a pretty good understanding of the cuisine. I would not hesitate to recommend Thai Orchid. You can absolutely get a tasty Thai meal in a friendly neighborhood-like atmosphere.
Raul was our server who was superb! Perfect service. He was very attentive but not over indulging. It was my anniversary and he engaged with us and made us feel special.The food was delicious! We ordered a bottle of Pinot Noir. I had the 20oz Bison Ribeye topped with bordelaise sauce and served with bacon cheddar mashed potatoes and asparagus. I ordered my steak at a medium temperature. It was flavorful and portion sizes generous. My husband had Steak Au Poivre which was a pepper encrusted NY strip with truffle pomme frites and cognac creamed spinach. He also had the Bentley's Martini. It was so much food we couldn't eat dessert. However Raul brought out a creme brûlée for our anniversary on the house with a candle. Our bill was a little our $180 before tip but not bad for the beautiful view of the city below. Everything was well worth it! We will be back again requesting Raul!
A friend of mine told me about Dino. They have the best grits in charlotte. The hash browns are great too. They give you 3 slices of bacon. The egg are great give you a pitched of tea. Give you extra toast don't charge you. Waitress are very friendly. You can have breakfast any time. Open early 5.30 close around 3.00 it us right across from old Tryon mall which is being torn down. Only thing is sugar creek is closed you have go out n Tryon. It is worth the drive
Having lived in the nearby apartment community, I have had the fortune to come to this restaurant or takeout regularly. Service is friendly, and food is excellent. The small location, tucked in the alleyway between Fresh market and Red Rocks allows for a nice intimate dining experience. Hopefully the new Fresh Market renovations don't destroy that atmosphere.
Not sure where the review of 12/11 went sour, but I have always had attentive service, and even asked to just have a pitcher of water left at my table because I drink it at a pace no waiter or waitress should need to pace.I think this was a one off for the previous reviewer.
My wife and I had Valentine's dinner. Even though we didn't have a reservation, the manager made special accommodations for us. Food was phenomenal and the provided great service. Definitely putting Dressler's as a top pick for me.
Excellent food and excellent service. I've been going to Skyland for 10 years now. Never had an issue. It seems this mystery shopper has racial insecurities and thinks everyone is out to get him. Next time write a real review.
Jake's is an awesome place to eat - essentially southern favorites with a sophisticated twist. The cornmeal fried oysters are my favorite! I definitely recommend Jakes. They were even icluded in a show on Food Network!
The food is decent here and cheap. Nothing fancy at all, but lunch for two came to just over $11. We enjoyed the food and especially enjoyed the cheapness of it.
A lot of people like it, but it's overrated here. The food was very blah. There are better Thai places in charlotte
