We are locals. This is our favorite Thai restaurant in the area. Food has always been excellent. Service has always been friendly. It gets busy during spring break, but we have always enjoyed our meal here.

We went to this restaurant while on vacation, after reading the reviews. The menu (especially for vegetarians) was really limited and the prices quite high. We ordered a soup to go with the lunch specials we selected. While the soup was so, so, the lunch entrees were a real disappointment. They were not like any Thai food we had experienced.... More

I moved to Destin last July and decided to stop by and try this place out. I used to live in Thailand and I'm very critical of Thai Restaurants. Since living here I've tried all the Thai restaurants in the local area and Royal Orchid is by far my favorite. Their service is great. The ambiance of the place reminded... More

Nice location, very quiet. Food is about average but very pricey for me. We went here for dinner and not a lot of people for Saturday night. One visit is enough for me.

Went to Royal Thai with a group of seven. Sat in a floor level table where you removed shoes and sat with your legs/feet in a ground well. Very comfortable and unique seating. Important to note they also have traditional tables if you prefer. Nice compact menu (for a Thai restaurant) that included Thai dishes in Beef, Pork, Chicken, and... More

Me and my wife love royal orchid, we go once a month or so. We would go more, but it is a little expensive knee everything adds up. It is worth the money though. She gets the cashew chicken every time, and she loves it. It is very delicious. I tend to get something different every time because i hadn't... More

Our New Orleans family is very picky about food, but we loved the Royal Orchid. There were 4 adults and one child and the dinner cost was under $50. even with a tip! We enjoyed 5 different dishes, all very good, and some were spicier than others. They are moving a few block away in mid-December to a newer and... More

My group came here for lunch and the place was very quiet. We ordered the platter to split and I was not impressed with the spring rolls. I ordered the seafood salad and the flavors were lovely. The mixture of cilantro and lemon really brought the dish to life. I could not handle the spicy aftermath though, I'm glad I... More

I don´t do many review (although we travel a lot), only when something is exceptionally good, or pretty bad in my view. Royal Orchid was a very pleasant surprise indeed. We ordered our food "thai hot", and very often this still leaves for a bland meal - not so here; perfect, proper heat, as in Thailand itself, and still keeping... More
