My running group meets here to celebrate birthdays--we've been going for several years now

Royal Thai serves very good food with excellent service. It's completely reliable and reasonably priced. We are usually a group of 7-8 people, and they take good care of us.

We were staying with friends in Sausalito and she took us to this place. With so many great restaurants around the area this was a great place for us tourists. Great food, great service. Banana with coconut ice cream, who knew? Not too high a price, great place.

I return to California once a year to visit family and although this restaurant is 45 minutes out of my way, it's an absolute must! I crave their thai food all year long! It's the freshest, most flavorful thai food I've ever eaten. The service is above and beyond incredible. Fast and friendly. I asked what kind of thai tea... More

One of the best kept secrets here to the new customer. Pong Pang is mixed seafood in a remarkable sauce. I also had A craving for Pad Thai. Every item on the menu is reasonably priced, authentic tasting, and totally delicious. Be sure to try the deep fried banana with coconut icecream. Pat and Jamie the owners are so nice... More

These guys set the standards for Thai food in Marin for decades now. I was their first customer and have never been disappointed. I lived in Thailand years ago, so on my first trip there I was looking for and found original flavors of the culture. The food is always on point. Great food and service. Plenty of parking nearby.

I would give Royal Thai 5 stars but parking is non-existent, and impossible. It is located under the highway 101 freeway with parking stalls limited to certain businesses, not enough for the restaurant. Other than having to walk 4 blocks and feed a parking meter, the food, service and ambience were excellent.

Found this authentic and tasty Thai place on this site and def recommend! Staff are older and so gracious and genuine. You'll feel like you stopped in your Auntie's cafe for dinner. Wine selection is decent and the food is fresh (i.e. The chicken doesn't have that processed, swimming in sauce and salt treatment that is so typical of "Thai"... More
