Perfect for a business dinner

Great food, good beer and very pleasant staff. The best thing about this was the quiet atmosphere, it makes an excellent choice for dinner with business colleagues.

Royal Thai has its own charm. There is one thing i am not happy about this restaurant is that the prices of food is highly inflated wherein Thai food shouldn't be as expensive as this place. I like this place and i am sure this place could be better place than it is now. The chef always get it wrong... More

I visit Royal Thai restaurant frequently because the food is delicious. Unfortunately I have noticed that the taste of food is not original (not as we used to it). When we inquired, we were told that the chef has been changed. We will not go there again unless the quality of good is improved. Service is excellent.

Whilst staying at the gulf hotel I decided to try the Royal Thai restaurant within the hotel. Upon arrival (7pm) the restaurant was empty and I picked a table near the window. The waitresses and staff were superb and very attentive. The restaurant was very clean and well laid out and a real pleasure to dine in. I had chicken... More

This is up there with any Thai restaurants on the Island. We went on a whim....empty evening and fancied a change from Lanna Thai (see other reviews). The extra drive was well worth it. We sat in relative luxury and had enough food to save some for the next day. I'd have no problem recommending this place.

The service was excellent. There is an extensive menu,so there should be something for everybody.The stir fried shrimps were delicious. The atmosphere was pleasant.The restaurant construction and also the decor,make it difficult to believe that you are inside the hotel complex. The Typhoon Bar is downstairs and this is a good place to visit before the meal.

Tried this as we love Thai food, and as usual with the Gulf the service was attentive and friendly, they never seem to disappoint in terms of the team they have in the F&B outlets. The restaurant was very quiet but the seating plan was done well to ensure that we were not alone in our section, the ambiance is... More
