Perfect end to our shopping trips

by Amanda
(Port Glasgow)

Don't let on, but Thai Orchid serves the best Thai food in Glasgow. In my humble opinion.

OK, that part of Argyle Street is still being spruced up (boy, is there a lot of building work going on these days), but it seems to me that only office workers seem to know about it.

We make sure (the shopping mad girls and I!) that our shopping trips finish somewhere near Central Station, and it only take two shakes of a lambs wazoo to wander round the corner to Thai Orchid.

We can always get a table. So keep this to yourself, OK?

Cheers! Amanda x

Our Little Thai Secret
by: Edward

You have a point, Amanda. Thai Orchid seems to be known mostly to office workers - I'm one of them!

There is no real reason for shoppers or tourists to venture that side of Central Station. So it has stayed a bit of a local secret, despite being around for quite a while.

Like you, I want it to stay that way. Delicious food, charming staff, with the females in traditional Thai dresses, and prices that somehow never seem high enough.

Who could ask for more? Let's try to keep our secret a secret...

All the best


Not quite so secret...
by: Andy

Oh no you don't!

Thai Orchid is slightly better known that you might think. I was introduced to this wonderful little Thai restaurant one evening a few years ago by some very good friends.

We were going to a drama thing at Arches Theatre, so we parked at the NCP behind the theatre, and walked the 2 minutes to Thai Orchid for a quick pre-theatre meal.

I admit to being surprised to find such a place on that stretch of Argyle Street. There's so little else around.

Anyway, its a regular pit stop for me now. Like you guys, I love Thai Orchid.

C U there some time, maybe!
