I had been wanting to visit the Siam Orchid Asian Restaurant, specializing in Thai food and sushi, in Vero Beach, Florida for a while. The interior looks inviting and the parking lot is always full, a good sign in my book. I tried to eat here a couple of times but they were closed; so when a friend called me up to meet she and two more there, I was glad to accompany them. We got there just in time to order from the lunch menu, which has cheaper prices, a rarity in Vero Beach.
Something Special: Siam Orchid offers a fabulous Thai iced tea. The price is $2.50. If you have never had one, it is very rich and velvety so I let the ice melt a bit to water it down somewhat. Yummy!
Noteworthy: The menu at Siam Orchid features a huge variety of foods to choose from plus I love that you can sit at the counter and watch them roll sushi.
- Noodle Dishes
- Stir-fry Dishes
- Fried Rice
- Soups and Salads (the lemongrass soup sounds divine)
- Thai Curry Dishes
- Thai Starters
- Tempura Dishes
- Temaki (hand-rolls) and Makimono Rolls (sushi rolls)
- Sushi Chef’s Special Rolls (I was eyeing the Miami Heat and Double Dragon Rolls)
- Desserts (Thai donuts, say no more- yum!)
- Siam’s Sushi Boat (not only gorgeous but perfect for sampling many different types of sushi/sashimi and sharing)
Best Part of the Meal: My curry dish was most enjoyable. It had chunky pieces of tender chicken with a flavorful sauce that was just the right amount of heat. The portion was the perfect size for lunch. Though the accompanying salad is only crisp Iceburg lettuce with a piece of cucumber and tomato, it is super scrumptious because of its tangy ginger dressing.
What Needs Improvement: The hours at Siam Orchid are very confusing. I would recommend they make them the same daily to avoid confusion.
Total Check Before Tip: $12.25
