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

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

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
