Description: Thai cuisine combines the best of gastronomic exoticism and culinary pleasure and the best place in which to indulge in it is at the Royal Thai. Overlooking a paved terrace, Royal Thai delights guests with authentic Thai food prepared by Thai master chefs, in a peaceful and serene ambience. The restaurant also has an elegantly furnished private dining room, which could be reserved for private gatherings. Voted Best Thai Restaurant in Colombo, Sri Lanka.

“Good food, rude staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

The food was excellent, but the lady floor manager wouldn't let us sit inside the hotel. instead we were given seats outside in the open. It was very humid and the ambience wasn't good.

“Best Thai option in colombo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Try the duck rice or any of the traditional curries. It can get crowded and loud, but then again, so is every restaurant at the cinnamon lakeside. Much better decor and hygiene standards than the "other" thai restaurants in Colombo. Better to make reservations for Dinner.

“Best Thai in Sri Lanka”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Service can be a bit slow, but, hey this is Sri Lanka, we are used to that. Simply the best Thai food in Sri Lanka, once you get over waiting for someone to take your order, the food comes fast & is worth waiting for. I prefer to sit out side, looking out over the beautiful swimming pool & lake, if you can't take the heat & humidity, inside is airconditioned & cool.
