The Thai Orchid Petoskey menu has plenty to offer including the typical Thai faves… pad thai, pad se’ew, drunken noodle, fried rice, pad pak, and more. The menu is easy to sort through since it is nicely organized into categories – appetizers, soups, entree dishes, house specials, noodle dishes, fried rice, curry dishes, duck dishes, and seafood dishes.

The portions at Thai Orchid Cuisine fall on the smaller side. Typically, when I’m dining out for Thai food, I can get two meals out of one order (especially carryout). Here it’s one very full order, meaning you can finish it but feel very full after. I’m also used to being served shrimp chips and soup before the meal, but Thai Orchid Cuisine does not. Everything is a la carte.

I ordered my usual – Pad Thai. I got it with scallops, which were plentiful, and the scallops were a nice large size and cooked perfectly. It was a good dish overall, but a little sweeter than what I’m used to for Pad Thai.

My husband ordered his usual Pad Se’ew with beef. We appreciated that the protein part of the meal had a nice presence. But, here’s what was odd… we both ordered our dishes medium spicy, but my husband’s was way hotter than mine. Did our server think I said mild? I was pretty happy though since medium proved to be pretty hot compared to what I am used to at other Thai restaurants.


Thai Orchid Cuisine is the most modern looking Thai food restaurant interior I have ever seen, which may not be saying much, but is still notable. Most Thai restaurants are dated and there’s not a whole lot of attention to the decor. At Thai Orchid Cuisine, there are cozy booths with mini wooden roofs, uniquely colored lavender walls, and glass top tables with woven decorative cloths underneath the thick glass sheet table top. Thai Orchid Cuisine is definitely classy and is a perfect fit for Downtown Petoskey.

(NOTE – Thai Orchid is having staffing issues and is still open for carryout only 8/25/21)

The food at Thai Orchid was fresh, and served super fast. Service was very friendly and you could tell this place has a good reputation as almost all of the tables were full at 8:00p on a Saturday night.

Overall, I would say the food was not as good as Bangkok Crossing in Lake Orion, but a definite hot spot when vacationing in Petoskey, Michigan. I wish the portion sizes were bigger, the value isn’t really up to par compared to other Petoskey restaurants.
