Portland has so many Thai restaurants - a few really special ones, several above-average and then..........I would rate Thai Orchid of West Linn as above average generally, but really good for the area! They are vegetarian friendly (which is more than I can say for some others in the Lake O/West Linn neighborhood), make a fabulous Pad Kee Mow with tofu, Mussman curry - our favorites. We have been getting food to go from here for many years and have never been disappointed. And they are so nice! I think the prices are kind of average - probably good for the neighborhood but perhaps a little high compared to east Portland. They have a parking lot, the restaurant is warm, pleasant and clean.
Thai Orchid offers absolutely the best Pad Thai and the best Salad Rolls in the whole Portland area. The Pad Thai is light and sweet without being sticky or gooey. The Salad Rolls are fresh and tasty, the dipping sauce is light and deliciously tangy. Although this location is one of a locally operated chain (or franchise), the staff are sweet, and the food is tasty and prepared consistently between visits and sites. Thai Orchid's only drawback is that the prices are a bit steep. I eat Thai Orchid's food at least once a month!
