Both meals were presented well and came with a cute little egg roll, a cup of soup and a small desert. Both were ample and very tasty. The service was cordial any quick.

Went for dinner, salad, soup, egg roll and entrée for $13. The food was absolutely the best we've ever eaten and we've eaten it all over the USA. The food was beautifully presented, every veggie was sliced like a flower, the soup was loaded with veggies, the salad dressing was so good my husband practically licked the plate and our... More

Royal Orchid is just delightful. The staff dress in lovely, colorful dress and have smiles and friendly attitude to match. Restaurant is small but very attractive, a bit of a surprise since it is in a strip mall. The staff is very helpful if you aren't sure of what to select or how spicy a choice might be. Food is...

I have eaten at Royal Orchid several times and the food is always very good. Their lunch specials are a great value with a spring roll, soup and entree all for around $8. They even give you a small pastry. Don't let the strip mall discourage you from coming in. This place is a true gem!

Love this Thai restaurant, I order my favorite even though it's not on the menu and they happily prepared it for me. It was delicious. The Thai Iced Coffee is a must for every visit! The stuffed wings should not be missed. And the special that you get for eat there only at $12.99 is a great deal for soup,... More

There are two or three Thai restaurants in Ocala. This by far is the best in my opinion. As a frequent eater of Thai food, I lean towards the Hot side. If you order Thai hot here, not American hot the great flavors still come through. Thai hot is not for the faint of heart, it can make you squirm.... More

It was not very spicey however, the green Thai chicken was very spicey and absolutely delicious. On Sundays... More

If you love Thai food don't pass up this place. It's in a strip mall on College Road with a plain store front but inside the food and decor are very authentic. Excellent waitpersons in traditional garb. The decor includes pillows at each seat and Asian art. My favorite is the Amazing Chicken with peanut sauce and brown rice. Lunch... More
