We were a group of 4, craving for some fine dining Thai food when someone recommended the restaurant to us. The restaurant is located in the famous Gulf hotel (opposite the grand mosque). We were greeted well and taken care by MR. Chandra who recommended the food based on our preference (vegetarian food). The food was authentic and tasted well.... More

Disappointing Thai food dishes that are not at all authentic Thai dishes. We asked for spicy dishes but they came out to be barely spicy at all. Some of the dishes are over priced considering what you actually get. The staff service is not very good, I was annoyed when one of the staff reached across me to pick up... More

If you want to chill out a bit and enjoy a conversation with friends, this is a place worth to try. Nice atmosphere, friendly and efficient staff. Ideal for a relaxing dinner, enjoying traditional Thai Food. I particularly appreciated their chicken with coconut milk. Prices could be revised downwards.

We started with the mixed platter, which was very nice Followed by Tom Yam Gung, which was very nice but not spicey enough for us. We then had Thai beef salad, always good, astir fried chicken dish and pad Thai All in all very nice

Royal Thai has its own charm. There is one thing i am not happy about this restaurant is that the prices of food is highly inflated wherein Thai food shouldn't be as expensive as this place. I like this place and i am sure this place could be better place than it is now. The chef always get it wrong... More

I visit Royal Thai restaurant frequently because the food is delicious. Unfortunately I have noticed that the taste of food is not original (not as we used to it). When we inquired, we were told that the chef has been changed. We will not go there again unless the quality of good is improved. Service is excellent.
