Great dinner! Quick seating and service. Friendly staff. Red Curry was very good. The Pineapple Fried Rice (served in a carved out pineapple half) was exceptional. The only problem was our charge. The dinner came to $29; the charge I was asked to sign was $38! When I went to the cashier, he couldn't determine A. Why that happened and... More

This is located at the end of a rather large shopping center strip mall. Glad we found it. The interior was simple and relaxing. I do enjoy real silverware and linen napkins. Feels a bit more fancy than many other restaurants on the isle. I ordered my favorite Pahd See Yew with shrimp and was very happy with it. Thick... More

Food was really good, service was quick and the price was right. I also liked that there was ample parking -- a real premium in most Kona locations!

We live in Los Angeles, which has a few Thai restaurants, and even it's own Thai Town. So we eat Thai food A LOT. There are three good places that deliver to our house. So it was with a bit of trepidation that we took the recommendation of Kona Boys when we returned our kayaks. We hadn't eaten since breakfast,... More

My sister and I stopped her for lunch on our way back to the Sheraton. We were served immediately and the level of service and suggestions of menu options were great. The food came out quickly and was fresh and great for the price. We will definitely go back. We had trouble getting a cab. One of the staff suggested... More

Royal Thai is in the Keahou Shopping Center close to the Sheraton and a good stop for lunch. The food was good although not spicy enough for me and the prices are very reasonable.

We ordered take-out, since we were staying at a near by resort. The red curry was good, but we were not as impressed with the Som Tam salad and fresh rolls. The dishes were very spicy. If you prefer medium spice, order mild.

We've eaten here before and as usual it was very good. Service was excellent. The spring rolls were good, green curry chicken was very good but a bit light on the chicken, Pad See U was OK but had unusual noodles for this dish and the cashew chicken was very good. All in all a good place to eat in... More

Food was excellent, service was friendly and quick. Food had good flavor without being too spicy. Will definitely go back next time we are in the area.
