I came in late last night (about 8:45pm) and was the only person in the dining room. I was served a great meal and had very friendly service! I'd def go back again next time I'm in town!

If you like Thai food this is a nice place to try when on the East side of the Island. It was my first experience with Thai iced tea and I've been drinking it ever since. They serve all the traditional foods and everything my family had was enjoyable. Simple environment, but you can bring the whole family.

Great food very authentic flavors. Been to Thailand many times and the food tastes very close. Massaman curry is awesome and try the thai garlic salmon. Owners very friendly cozy.

In March of 2012, I wrote a review stating that the restaurant was closed. The sign they placed in the window, "Royal Siam is now closed" seemed so final. Recently, I was surprised to see the restaurant open again. Please give them a try, their food is delicious!

I remember this restaurant from the mid 80's, not sure how long it has been there. The yellow curry was delicious. Pong was an inviting host as he took our orders and brought us our food. I think his wife was cooking the food. Unfortunately, a few weeks after we ate there, I saw a "closed for business" sign in... More

Royal Siam is a small, kind of older Hilo restaurant. Decor is nothing fancy, but the food is excellent. My family and I went twice during our stay in Hilo and loved the fresh seafood dishes. Service was great. Very economical.

Decor could use an update...but it is clean and well kept up. The lighting is great for a place to curl up, read a book, and enjoy a cold beer and some terrific Thai food! Pongsan, the owner, has been open for 20 years and has his recipes perfected...a wonderful pag thai has surprizes everywhere. The red curry was creamy... More

We stopped at the Royal Siam Thai Restaurant after we spotted their coupon in the Entertainment Book. The food was excellent and the service was very attentive; although we felt slightly odd with the waiter seated in the restaurant staring our way so he could give us the prompt attention. The place is a bit rundown but that didn't bother... More

This little cafe is on the same street as the Hilo Farmers Market. We stopped in one day for lunch and the food was very good. We liked it so much we ate there 3 times during our 2 week stay in Hilo.
