Thai food is one of my favorites, and I’ve tried many thai restaurants in Ontario, Canada, but no thai restaurant came close to Orchid Thai, I’ve been in different Thai restaurants in Toronto, North York, Scarborough, Markham, Richmond Hill, Aurora, Newmarket, King City, Etobicoke, Woodbridge, Mississauga, Brampton, and nothing beats the taste of Orchid Thai Cuisine.

When you try the food at Orchid Thai you will notice the difference in the taste that they have to offer! you will notice that they use fresh high quality vegetables, you will taste the difference!
