Royal Orchid Thai near Weston Rd. & Finch

  • j

Located at a corner west of Weston Rd. on the north side, I didn't think anyone was finding this place at all. In the last year, it's been truly discovered, Soups are probably the most aromatic I have ever encountered!

  1. Hrmm, that's in my neck of the woods. Anything in particular you recommend (besides, obviously, the soups)?

      I have tried many dishes and usually have Mango Salad if I'm with someone or get it to go, very enjoyable!!
      My less educated years ago palate told me the Pad Thai was pretty plain but in this later wisdom, I find it still somewhat so, but recognize it as more authentic without unnecessary sweetness or ketchup and I heat it up with chile and/or chile sauce! Had the non aromtic soup the other day and it was a wonderful spicy satay beef soup, got in after 11.00 a.m. and was out soon before noon as some people were starting to come in!!!

        The Royal Orchid Thai is my favourite office lunch place.

        My favourite dishes are the cold shrimp roll appetizer, yum tom noodle soup, satay beef noodle soup, and #27 (a fried noodle dish -- I can't remember the name).
