Thai Orchid is a new (I think) place across from the Pruneyard on the Campbell Avenue side. Pretty, eccentric old house space, open kitchen. The food was very good. My only complaint was the satay chicken which could have been served warmer. The fresh rolls could not have been fresher. We ordered a variety of dishes. The pad thai noodles were light and delicate. The seasonings were delightfully varied, a pleasant departure from most places in town where all the dishes look and taste like they came from the same pot no matter what the menu says. Friends I was with said it was the best take they'd had since Thailand. Prompt service, excellent prices (plus there's a 15% off coupon in this week's Metro).
