Liked it!

Not a fancy place, but the curry was solid. Waitstaff was nice and the food came to the table super quickly.

Originally planned to eat lunch at Chelsea Market, however wrong choice on Saturday. Walked around to look for a place to eat and found this wonderful little restaurant. Service was great and best Thai food so far.

Went to the Royal SIAM Thai cuisine for dinner at about 18:00. Food was OK, as was the service. Payed the bill with a credit card, and was going to leave a cash tip. I went to the bathroom with my 7 year old sun, but when I left the bathroom the waitress was waiting with my bill saying that... More

Standard Thai selection right on 8th avenue. Very reasonably priced given the location. Standard curry, pad Thai, dumplings etc...food didn't impress me. Service was prompt and friendly. Decent wine by the glass selection.

New York City is filled with great, delicious restaurants. The challenge is to find a great restaurant that’s also modestly priced. We hit the jackpot with the Royal Siam. In business since 1993, the restaurant has survived in the highly competitive Chelsea neighborhood by serving wonderful food—with an extensive menu, attention to artful presentation, abundant portions, and skillful, varied flavors....

We stumbled on this place on a cold February evening, so started by ordering some warm sake (confusingly Japanese, not Thai). The menu was quite large. I had the vegetable dumplings which were lovely, and the garlic ginger tofu was well cooked. I was offers a choice of white or brown rice, which was novel for me. I opted for... More

We have never been to a Thai restaurant before and was a little hesitant today, especially it being Valentines Day. It was delicious!! Service was very good service. Just happened to walk by and so glad we stopped. Prices are very reasonable - will definitely come back next time we are in town!

I am going to start reviewing my ole NYC stand-bys - they have a theme: Quick, cheap, and delicious food. Royal Siam was reviewed in the Times many years ago and its a great choice for Thai in Chelsea. We always eat the same - summer rolls, satay, beef & papaya salad, shrimp with red curry. Nothing too extraordinary, but... More

While visiting New York from California, we enjoyed walking along the Hi-Line in Chelsea area and decided to get off and walk to find something for dinner. Happened upon this place and were very pleased with food quality, appearance, service, ambience, etc., for a reasonable price in New York City.

I know exactly what to expect when I come: the food is good, the prices fair and the staff pleasant. It used to be a little better, but it is my favorite choice of the (too) many Thai places in the neighborhood.

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
