Tried the Royal Orchid Thai restaurant in Rowley last week. It's in the Marketplace to the right of Market Basket on Rte. 1. Very fresh and delicious food, and modern decor. We had the Pad Thai (my go to benchmark choice) and it was quite good, the Yellow Curry was lacking the butternut squash but was otherwise a good choice.
Driving up Washington St in Gloucester, I noticed a sign in the window where Turtle Alley Chocolates use to be: Happy Dumpling coming soon.
That could be something to look forward to.
