Average food, poor service

Let's start with the positive aspects. The Royal Palm restaurant is conveniently located at Patong beach which makes for a great lunch or early dinner just a 1 min walk from the beach. Some staff will speak English beyond the menu and the overall appearance is clean for Phuket standards. That's... read more

Stopped in this beach from restaurant so we could watch the world go by as we had lunch, wish I had carried on and tried some place else, food was well below average, we only ordered simple food to boot, 2 bacon sandwiches, shrimp fried rice and a burger, all 3 snacks were poor, plus a bottle of drinking water...

I have two rules when eating whilst travelling: 1. Always, check Trip Advisor before eating and staying anywhere. 2. Restaurants with views almost always have bad food My Royal Palms reminded me why I have these two rules. In my defence, I was hungry, I had arrived in Phuket minutes before, the view looked lovely and the menu looked good.... More

Omg... Where to start! Drinks were average price, the decor is alright, the customer service was poor. The table beside us (4 people) ordered literally seconds before us and waited around 20 minutes for their food. They ate their main and moved onto desserts and still no food for our table (2 people). We asked and the waitress seemed less... More

I should have read the reviews before going... it was our first night in Phuket and came here with friends. My meal was average.. but everyone elses was poor. By far the worst thing though was the service. Absolutely disgraceful. Our girlfriends waited downstairs on the street for well over 30 minutes by themselves whilst we waited for "The bill"... More

Avoid this place at all costs!! Food tasted sour so we sent it back only to still be charged for it. Ridiculously overpriced for the quality of food and the staff weren't bothered in the slightest. Complete rip off.

My bf and I ordered a seafood basket to share. It came with free flow salad bar and butter rice. The butter rice serving was quite pathetic with a plate of rice in the warmer. The salad bar only had lettuce, cucumber, carrots and tomatoes with some dressings. The lettuce was limp and didnt look fresh. There were squids, phuket... More

Food was good, service was great...but funny they didn't have any cakes for dessert! It was my friend's birthday, requested if there's even a tiny slice or piece of cake but no!

I am not a fussy guy but there is service and there is bad service then there is the service from The Royal palm. Rude, unhelpful, rude, angry and did I say rude? A family night that turned into an expensive disaster
