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

This is my favorite restaurant in Marin County. I love Thai food and the Royal Thai perfectly meet my expectations! The food is great, the ambiance very nice and the service very good.

I love this place. They are spot on for flavor. I had the KAENG DAENG with shrimp and mushroom, just loved it. The decor is very pleasant and the waitress's look lovely in their thai silk. Great prices, you can't go wrong.

We live near Royal Thai and love the ease and reliability of the take out. The staff is always so polite and in all the years we have been going there, the meal ordered matched the meal prepared, and that doesn't always happen with take out. If you want a fun and warm dining experience with family or out-of-towners, this... More

This place is amazing. I had never tried Thai food and I can't wait to eat it again. This is absolutely one of the best meals I have eaten. It is a favorite restaurant of the people we were visiting, and I can see why. Don't miss out on this little gem!! Great food, service and ambience. Great for a... More

Royal Thai is a nice place, quiet, with a lovely décor. On the night that I went, they were paying far too much attention to the take-out crowd and not enough to the in-house diners. That being said, once the food did arrive, it was great! I would go back again, but will be prepared to wait a bit before... More

This place is right off the freeway and so is very handy, but finding the parking lot is almost impossible - there are so many one way streets in the vicinity. I parked on the street and made my way inside, it is a lovely spot, there is a courtyard outside the restaurant, and inside it is decorated beautifully. The... More

The Tom Kagai Soup was excellent and so were the rest of our dishes. Quality ingredients, nice presentation, great flavors. Don't hesitate to try new choces. You can specify how spicy you like your food. The menu has a wide variety of choices including exotic ingredients. Our helpful waitress was wearing a Thai dress and the atmosphere was very pleasiing.... More

This is good Thai food. It is reliable and clean and exotic and delicious and sure, I burn my tongue sometimes because I am a Thai food newbie, but I love the flavors. We usually get take out. The building is adorable but I always feel a little uncomfortable in the parking underneath the freeway. The food is great! Try... More

We have lived in central Marin for 20 years, and during that all that time Royal Thai always had the reputation as the best Thai in the county. We had never eaten there, however, as we were devotees of Orchid Thai in San Anselmo. Orchid is now closed, and we were seeking a new favorite, so gave Royal a try.... More
