The Blue Orchid, the perfect place to experience contemporary Thai food in a tranquil setting. The first Blue Orchid restaurant opened in Newtown Park Avenue, Blackrock in January 2002 and has since become an institution for many in the surrounding areas. Following its success, Blue Orchid, Stepaside opened in 2011,  which was followed by Ballinteer in 2013 with the addition of Teppanyaki.

Our philosophy is to keep things simple, classic and fresh with a modern twist. Our Executive Chef, Saki is committed to producing wholesome meals from quality produce at great value and loves nothing more than using his creative flair to create distinctive dishes.

Thai food is recognised as one of the world’s most outstanding cuisines. Recipes are handed down from generation to generation, with artful decoration adding to the impression of superb creativity. The key to the distinctive tastes lies in the balance of spices, herbs, roots and leaves, which enhances the natural flavours and textures of the main ingredients. Contrasting flavours, textures and colours are used to compliment, never masking each other. Our team of experienced, fusion chefs love to experiment with flavours and add a twist to traditional dishes. Whether you prefer your dishes hot, hot, medium or mild, we are delighted to cook to order.
