Picked this place based on trip advisor reviews. Sure wasn't disappointed. Kinda tuff navigating to find a parking spot the only downside. Had vege wraps as an appetizer with peanut sauce. Very good. We had pad se u and #51 chicken with chili sauce. Both were very good. Topped off by a nice gass of Fume Blanc. Very nice dinner.... More

We went back for the first time after over 15 years of forgotten this place even existed until I checked online. Every dish we ordered and sampled was just right with the taste, the presentation was always with a purple orchid. I spoke with the owner, who continues to use her own home-made sauces and recipes, nothing has changed since... More

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.
