Best Thai food in Waco

Bangkok Royal offers the best Thai food in Waco, although, truth be told, it doesn't have a whole lot of competition. The wait staff is a bit hit or miss, but the food is worth it. We especially love their curries, especially green (spicy) or panang (rich and sweet). Best bet is to order to go and... read more

I've been going here since they first opened in their old location and have always loved the food. Now I live in Bangkok and rarely get back to Waco, but when I do I always try to make a stop here. The food is always cooked perfectly and is so flavorful. Nice that you can get a Thai beer (Singha)... More

Been craving Thai since my last trip to Houston. Bangkok did not disappoint like another place in Waco. The spring rolls, fried rolls and Pad Thai are as good as any. We were seated immediately. Our server, Isaac was right there with quick and pleasant service. We ordered way too much food, so get to enjoy a Friday midnight snack.... More

This was our first visit to Bangkok Royal, but will not be our last. We had a variety of dishes and all were excellent, even the grandkids enjoyed it. The Thai Iced Tea was very good. Prices were very reasonable. Service was adequate, if uninspired. We'll go back

I decided to after the place being recommended to me by so many people. There was a good choice to from the menu, and I picked the yellow curry which was very good. The accompanying soup was by no means the best I have had. Our server who was Thai however was not a typical Thai. He was abrupt and... More

We went to Bangkok Royal Thia Cuisine for dinner on a Saturday night. My husband loves Thai food. We had to wait about 10 minutes to be seated. The places was very busy and the service was okay mostly. My husband ordered a curry dish and really liked it. I had Pad Thai Noodles which were not so good. It... More

Not sure if the perceived service issues are due to the fact that most Thais are rather quiet and reserved folks. Had dinner there tonight and the service was fine throughout the meal. I had their Spicy Basil Duck and it was very tasty. Topped off with a Singha Thai beer and it was overall a very good meal. If... More

I am pretty very generous with reviews. This restaurant had the worst customer service I have ever experienced in my life. Typically when a customer finds items floating in there food you would think the establishment would bend over backwards to correct and then resolve the problem. But not at all. I was out with friends and it was my... More
