Our server was pleasant and helpful. The ambience is more upscale and industrial. Four of us each ordered a different entree. One chicken was good, the beef entree was grisly. The tiger shrimp cakes were so dense that I could eat only one. I would...More

We followed Google maps around the block 3 times before we figured out where this was. It's tucked behind the old courthouse/capitol. We were able to find on- street parking but it was late at night. I wonder what the alternatives are when the city...More

We sought out vegan food in the land of beef and bar-b-que and we found just the right spot at Blue Orchid. We enjoyed patio dining and a server, Toni, who helped us select vegan options. Will return when we venture through Lincoln next time!

We always get a great meal and at least good if not excellent service when we visit. Great dishes that you can't find elsewhere; the Kao Soi is our favorite. Would be nice if beer selection was expanded.

Been here a few times over the years. We hadn’t been back for awhile because our last visit wasn’t good. But thought we would give them another chance. We shouldn’t have. Dirty floors, bad food and bad service.
