My wife and I had dinner in this restaurant almost by default because another place we had in mind was not open that evening. We did not regret eating at the Royal Thai Cafe. The food was quite authentic and tasted great. Having never eaten there, we ordered conservatively - Pad Thai and Green Curry with Chicken, spiced a #2... More

this is in the keahou Shopping Center which is very near our condo, so we use it for both eat-in and take-out. The food is always reliable and the ser5vice very good and friendly. Lots of locals eat here as well. recommend the pineapple chicken friend rice and the jumbo prawns.

This is one of our go to places when we are visiting Kona. We have been going there since it opened, perhaps it was an off night but we felt the food has slipped a bit. We always order the Thai Basil rolls which are not fried, cold with crunchy ingredients and shrimp. This time it seemed to be more... More

my husband visit the Big Island each year and would not miss the chance to eat at the Royal Thai, it is excellent. The restaurant is so clean, the staff are friendly and the food is fresh and soooo good. We even pick up food to go, the soup is amazing.

We stopped here after a long day of touring the island as it was close to our resort. The service was fast, friendly and the food fresh and tasty. Check them out you won't be sorry...

We picked this place on random and was overcome with how amazing the service,food,and atmosphere were. The service was prompt and respectful (the only restaurant that brought over a water cup with a lid and straw for our son), the food arrived quickly and tasted devine. If I'd let him my husband would eat here every single night. The portions... More

One of the best Thai places in Kona and convenient to Keauhou. Had a great meal and it was just what we wanted for dinner.

Stopped by for dinner and enjoyed everything about the visit. Lot's of free parking, spacious restaurant with nice ambiance, and the staff extremely friendly and courteous. The food was very delicious, especially the Duck. They did get busy quickly so you might want to make a reservation.
