I would like to first state that I think Thai Orchid was ran by different management at the time of the last review. My boyfriend and I have been eating there regularly (2-3 times a month) for the past year. The soup is always served freshly made, vegetables are always fresh and the service is very pleasant. The gentleman who typically seats people is always a delight and friendly, he always asks about my mother and inquires on when she may return for lunch; which i find to be nice even if it is a sale tactic.
It can take a bit of time for certain items to get to the table, such as the soup as I have mentioned it is made fresh. I have yet to have a nasty soggy old vegetable and I have yet to have horrible service.
