Food is worth the lack of service

Go here once a year for lunch! There is always only 1 person manning the front and serving all of the tables, so don't expect any service. They are walking away to put your order in before you open the menu. Good thing I know what I want (Thai Green Curry Chicken is the best!). But, you have to... read more

Went for lunch recently with a work friend. Nice atmosphere, varied menu. Went with a lunch special - Pad Thai, soup, dumplings. Food was tasty, albeit your average Thai. Service - server seemed hurried, no smiles or friendliness, strictly business.

I have been a regular here for a number of years. The lunch specials are a great value, and the quality of the food is excellent. Probably one of the best lemongrass soups I have ever had. All of the items on the menu are really good.

The food and atmosphere at Royal Thai is excellent. You get great food and excellent service at a good price. It is also BYOB which makes it very affordable.

Went there for lunch today for my first time. Restaurant had obviously just finished being slammed. There was only one server and my time was limited so I was concerned. I told the server I was in a bit of a hurry he told me no problem, that the rush was over. He absolutely took excellent care of me: took... More

Lunch with a friend was bad. He ordered pineapple fried rice and I orderd pad thai. Both dishes appeared to be microwave re-heats and both looked to have been sitting around in the kitchen for quite some time (sticy old noodles and rice). The host/waiter was less than pleasant as well. It might be the fact that he was the... More

Monday lunch rush and there was only one guy working all parts of the front of the restaurant and he did an amazing job. He brought people to their table, took their orders, brought their drinks/food, brought people their bill and did the check out. He needs a raise and they need to hire another person. They have a pretty... More

We have been going to the Royal Thai Orchid for years, and we have enjoyed every single visit. We have brought many friends who have shared our enjoyment ever since. The Chue Chee Duck (My personal favorite) is always crispy and flavorful. I could mention the Thai Eggplant, the Lamb of Siam, the Evil Jungle Princess, just to name a... More

Pleasant dining room helps you forget the strip mall location. We went early in order to get to a show. Service was good. Menu was broad, with many of the usual suspects. I went with an old favorite, jungle princess. The chicken was tasty and all the lovely vegetables melded well with the flavors. Good heat and easy to enhance... More

We were really excited to find a restaurant in the area that was just Thai. Not asian fusion, not indian thai… just thai. Unfortunately, we were disappointed with their menu. It seemed to be primarily curry and other types of thai foods that did not appeal to us. There was maybe 4-5 noodle dishes. The peanut sauce was not very... More
