Thai Orchid- Indianapolis, IN


Rama Delight:


Seafood Madness:





You might have seen the ads in the paper (usually with a coupon) for Thai Orchid in Castleton. It is in a new strip center on Bash Street and we loved it. It is beautifully decorated and has a huge menu that thankfully you can peruse on their website before you go. We ordered the Rama Delight and Seafood Madness. We chose mild for the spiciness of the Rama Delight. There is a choice of chicken, beef, pork, shrimp, or vegetarian for the Rama Delight (and many of their entrees) and we chose vegetarian. A thick peanut sauce covered tofu, broccoli, cabbage, and carrots and came with a bowl of white rice to pour it over. It was wonderful as was the hot ginger tea we had with it. We also ordered the Seafood Madness. This dish contained huge shrimp, scallops, squid and mussels with asparagus and Thai basil. The seafood was tossed in a hot chili paste so the medium heat was definitely hot enough for us. It also was served with a bowl of sticky rice on the side.

Indianapolis has quite a few Thai restaurants (10 according to the Indy Ethnic Food website), but Thai Orchid has added something really special to the scene with their beautiful space, thoughtful presentation, and unique dishes.

Looks good and thanks for posting. I haven't had Thai in a while, so I should give this one a "Thai"... I had to.

I finally got to this restaurant--and I think it's going to be my "go-to" for Thai. The service was great, and the Pad See Eew was prepared just the way I like it. Thanks for the heads-up on this gem of a restaurant!
