really good service and delicious food!

We went to Royal Thai because we had a hankering for some pad thai and param. When we arrived, it had just opened for dinner. The waitress was a little less than enthusiastic and rushing our order. It just felt like she had no interest in us being there. We thanked her and said please, we were polite from beginning to end. When the check came and we asked for separate checks she rolled her eyes. As a previous employee of the food industry, i have to say i was EXTREMELY unimpressed with the service. If i had to go there again, i would probably call ahead for take out. In fact, i think we will just try take out.

\r\n It's hard to write a review about royal thai because they don't have the best tasting food\r\n or the quality or flavor some other places have, but what they do have is really good fast thai food\r\n that is decent for what you pay for, so overall it is a good place to go. They aren't fast food but\r\n almost seem like 'thai fast food' and will say that their dishes lack a certain authentic flavor\r\n that some other thai restaurants have as well as meats seeming as if they are not of the highest\r\n quality. But if you're craving thai food and want a good place to go to, this definitely is it. Their soups\r\n and dishes are good, and their service is also really good, and they are generally very nice\r\n and their restaurant is always filled with people so you can tell that it is a popular place. I wouldn't\r\n say it's the best thai food in Orlando but it's a really good thai spot to go to if you want decent\r\n thai food at a decent price with good service. The restaurant decor is also cozy and a nice spot\r\n to go to dine at. Overall, it is almost always a good dining experience there and you won't be\r\n disappointed. If you are hoping for really exotic gourmet thai cuisine, this isn't the place for that\r\n but your palate will still be pleased and you will probably return for more...\r\n

We moved from Orlando to the West Coast a few years ago and haven't had Thai food as good as Royal Thai since. We used to live near Lee road and there were 3 Thai places really close, and we ate at all of them, but would always drive across town to get Royal Thai. The TOM YUM IS THE BEST!! Haven't had as good before or since. We have eaten at dozens of thai restaurants across the US and the tom yum is never close to being as good as Royal Thai. I really am not sure what could have caused the couple of bad reviews for this place. \r\n\r\nThe red curry is outstanding. The whole fried snapper (lemon or red curry) is great, fried crispy and delicious. We have lived in California, Washington and now we live in Portland Oregon (where there are so many thai restaurants that you don't know which one to pick) and I would really like to eat some Tom Yum from Royal Thai right now after just having another mediocre meal at another thai place. If you haven't eaten here I don't want to get your expectations too high because invariably you may be disappointed, but it is our favorite, hands down. John and his family are very nice and welcoming and they make great food. It was always very fresh when we ate there. We are mostly vegetarian so I will say best vegetarian thai although I wholeheartedly recommend the whole snapper if you have someone to share it with, or go for the red curry. It is great. And if I haven't already said it too many times, get the tom yum! Drunken Noodles also get an honorable mention.

Pros: TOM YUM!!!! Red Curry, Drunken Noodles, great owners who care about their customers

Cons: It is in Borlando, and on 436.

Always a great choice for lunch whether or not you're on your break from work or have plenty of time on the weekend. Service is excellent, speedy, but not rushed. The food is always great and affordable.

I've been to this place a total of about five times over the past few years--mainly only because it's one of the few Thai places that is open on a Sunday. And everytime my boyfriend and I go we ask ourselves why we went back and swear to never go again. Seriously, the food is bad. I mean, it's bland and the ingredients are not of the best quality. The tom kha gai is watered down which makes me think CHEAP. I'd rather pay a little bit more for better quality food. The combination fried rice, which is one of my favorite dishes at all Thai places, is just bland. This time I got the pad thai and was sour and a sticky lump. And let me just say one last thing...we eat a lot of Thai food...so I feel like we know the difference between good and bad thai food by now.

I understand that this is Orlando, where pallets might be lacking flavor and Wing House is a 5 star place but anyone who has ever enjoyed real ""American"" style Thai food would never reccommend Royal Thai.\r\n\r\nBoth the Pad Thai noodles and Pad See Wee noodles are packaged and not homemade, and their abundance of frozen vegatables and meats make this place compeletely unappetizing. \r\n\r\nPad Thai Noodles are thin and small, not long like spaghetti, where as the flat Pad See Wee noodles are flat and square, not flat and long.\r\n\r\nDISGUSTING ATMOSOPHERE, FROZEN FOOD, BAD SERVICE\r\n\r\nIf you are white trash you will love this place, but if you like to dine on quality food you will need to look else where.

I have been to Royal Thai a few times and have recommended it to friends. I have introduced people to it who, until then, were really unsure about trying Thai food or had had previous bad experiences. This last time, we ordered Wonton Soup, Thai style, which was beautiful to look at and tasty; Chicken Satay with a wonderful peanut sauce; Cashew Nut entree with Chicken which is - by far - the best Thai entree I have ever had; Spicy Fried Rice - and when they say spicy, that is exactly what they mean, but it was excellent; and Pad Thai with Chicken, also great. The only regret was that we all ordered chicken. In previous trips I have tried the yellow curry, which I also enjoyed. Most of the entrees come with regular sticky rice, but it can be changed to Jasmine rice for a fee. Don't forget to add the cucumber salad either!

Pros: Great Food & Nice Selection of Entrees (it's not just Curry, folks)

Cons: I wish the entrees came with Cucumber salad & the mango/sticky rice dessert is MIA

Always heard how great the food--finally went. After ordering, I saw a tiny insect crawl out of the spice rack....never again....!!

We ordered the Noodle soup with pork and it had no flavor at all. Spring rolls were good but greasy. Chicken & Shrimp pad tai had no flavor at all and was very dry. Portions were large. Staff was very freindly. Seafood delight had a funky fish smell to it. Tofu dish with cocunut milk was the only highlight of the meal. It was the only dish that was full of flavor.

Can you order a dish in Thailand that doesn't have some kind of pepper in it? You certainly can at Royal Thai. The spiciness so characteristic of Thai food is almost completely absent here. The most sensitive palates will find nothing to ever break a sweat over. If you can overlook this, though, the food is consistently very good: always fresh, always tasty. Just not very authentic. This consistency is rare. It's one of the reasons why Royal Thai is so popular. Just don't hop off a plane from Phuket and expect it to be comparable.

I just arrived back home from this restaurant and I was actually dissapointed. The decor was terrible, but that is usally a given, its not the decor I'm going out for it's the serivce and food. The food was good, but not great. The service was the problem, I saw our waiter twice throughout the entire evening, once for the order and twice for the bill. Thai House is a million times better for the same price just a couple miles away!

I brought my brother here for his birthday. He said it was the BEST Pad Thai he's ever had. We got the spring rolls, cucumber salad, the chicken satay, the yellow chicken curry, beef pad thai and chicken param. Everything was absolutely delicious! We were so stuffed but couldn't stop....I HIGHLY recommend this restaurant! The service is prompt, friendly and very pleasant! This restuarant is absolutely wonderful and I've found my new favorite place!

After reading the praises, kuddos and reviews of this restraurant, I decided the 20 minute drive was going to be well worth it. Well, it was ok, the reception warm, but the food was just as though you were invited to a modest Bankok home where the presentation was non existent, and many and the flavours inspid, uninteresting and below par. Watch out for the salt They have pretty heavy hand. As a New Orleanian I follow the adage if its good its good. No one said anything about OK. And this place is just OK

It's like being back in Thailand. By far the best Tasting Thai food in Central Florida. Any of us done any Thai cooking should know that Royal Thai uses only fresh ingridients & spices, not pre- made paste. The servers are very friendly unlike a lot of other places. Service is very prompt. Price is very reasonable. If you haven't eaten there yet, you haven't had real Thai food yet.\n\n

After discovering Royal Thai about eight years ago, it has become my favorite Thai restaurant to visit. The food is spectacular! Every item I have ever ordered has exceeded my expectations. I strongly suggest you start with the Tom Yum Goong soup and a few orders of their house spring rolls. Lunch at Royal Thai is a sweet deal. For about $6 you can get a lunch portion thats just as big as the dinner meals. Royal Thai is located in a busy part of town, so traffic may be a problem. I will continue to visit Royal Thai for lunch, dinner, and carry out! The service is perfect and always friendly. If you have never been to Royal Thai, stop reading these reviews and go, youll be back to write one of your own!

This is one of the greatest Thai restaurants in Florida. I have eaten at quite a few and none top this restaurant for value, taste, and service. I bring all my friends/family that visit, and each of them walk away a fan! Pad Thai is a great way to break into Thai food if you have never tried it before. They even have take-out if you are in a rush!

My fiancee and I have a tradition of trying Thai restaurant everywhere we go and we total loved this one. The service was friend and courteous. The food is excellent and tasty and the view is very relaxing. You must try Sticky Rice and Mango for desert! You won't be disappointed.

I have tried dozens of restaurants in and around Orlando and many have been good, at least on the first visit, but few maintain the quality for repeated visits. Royal Thai is one of my favorites. After dozens of visits and a variety of dishes, I have never been dissatisfied with the food, service, or atmosphere. It has become our first choice restaurant when anyone visits from out of town/state and I would recommend it to anyone for groups or even a quiet, romantic date. Have fun!

Our family had never had Thai food. This food was fabulous. My son had his ""spiced up"" to match traditional Thai food. The rest of us added Thai hot chili as we dared. Everything we had was outstanding (3 of us took the advice of another reviewer - #45 - fabulous) - my son had the fried rice and loved it as well. I would recommend the cucumber salad, the Thai soop, and for desert, either the coconut ice cream or the deep fried bananna. I could have liked it more - the service was great - friendly, timely - I felt like one of the family.
