If anyone interested to eat cockroach with other insect please visit this restaurant
Went along with my colleagues to ORCHID HOUSE - THAI RESTAURANT, 15 Marine road Apapa Lagos.
Found cockroach in rice and same was conveyed to the Restaurant staff and they cleared our plates without wasting time. Waiter came with the bill immediately stating that we have to pay the bill. We took the bill and generously went to the Asian lady (we were ready to pay the entire bill excluding rice item) who was handling the desk asking about the incident which happened few minutes back and she started claiming that it was not their mistake and don't know who put the cockroach in the dish and customer need to pay for dishes which they order. Another waiter (pic attached) was very nonsense, arrogant started arguing with us that we need to pay entire bill (zero manners / zero hospitality).
Finally we decided it's better stop arguing with illiterate guys and pay the bill. So we paid the entire bill and buzz off.
From the outside, you’ll hardly realize how pretty the premises of this restaurant would be…. and right from the moment you drive in, it is so so very cozy and pretty. They most definitely have put in so much effort into the decor of this restaurant. Literally an Orchid House, as right from the car park, you’ll see orchids being hung all over.
The outdoor section looks like a little secret garden, with a pretty swing, lushy greens and bush huts. In evenings, they added pretty lights and the ambience is sssoo sweet, serene and pretty!!
The menu is definitely Thai, with the usual suspects of Pad Thai, Tom Yam Goong and somehow Gyoza (Japanese Dumpling) made it way in the menu as well. The most impressive dish is definitely the Tom Yam Goong Soup! It was fresh, flavorful and served up in pretty white bowls. The Gyoza wasn’t great, but that’s not really Thai, so you can’t use that as a gauge. The Goong Ob Woon (glass noodles with prawns) was flavorful, but slightly over salted. The green curry and Pad Thai were decent, but it felt like it needed a little more flavor. We also got lucky as they had Mango and Sticky Rice for desserts available! Never thought i would find that here…. IT WAS YUMMY!
Overall, would definitely come back again. Service was great, Food was good and ambience is amazing!
