Reputed to be the best Thai restaurant in Sri Lanka, the Royal Thai is OK, but far from authentic. Perhaps altered to suit tourists' or Sri Lankans' tastes? If you know real Thai food, you will likely be disappointed.

I had several dinners here and the food and service was always terrific. The ambiance was relaxing. One evening we had a group with special dietary requests and they were fulfilled perfectly.

A luncheon with family was a special experience. The service was good and every item ordered was tasty. The serving of desert was not up to par as it took time in being served almost calling for cancellation of the order.

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.
