In town on business. Found this place online with good reviews. Busy for lunch but not packed. Seated immediately. The soup menu does not include coconut milk based soups. Ordered the Tom Yum vegetable. It was ok. I won't order it again. Pad Thai tofu was delicious but not at all spicy. Probably one of the best tasting pad thai... More

Been here often. Always consistently good. Lunch special is outstanding deal including entry, soup, salad, and mini donuts. Relaxing atmosphere. Best Asian in Ocala.

It is a small restaurant in a strip mall. We were greeted very nicely, seated right away. The waitress was very nice. Our orders were taken quickly and she recommended a special dinner where we got soup and appetizer for free. Our dinners arrived quickly. The food was delicious, we tried the homemade coconut ice cream for dessert. The prices... More

I am not a fan of Thai cuisine but I AM CRAZY FOR THIS PLACE!! At this point I think I am a regular !!. Royal Orchid says it is a Thai restaurant but it really has a variety of dishes that will please everyone. Lunch is especially enjoyable as the atmosphere is relaxing and cooked to order for less...

This is an amazing Thai restaurant. My husband and I both had fried rice. Mine was a combination of protein (beef, pork, and chicken), and my husbands was rather different. I believe it had pineapple and curry in it. He raved about it. They must have well-seasoned wok's because both had that unique flavor of a real Thai restaurant. Mine... More

Ended up at this restaurant totally by accident -- was in the strip shopping center and hungry. Probably wouldn't have found it otherwise. Now I know where to look! Had spring rolls, shrimp-veggie tempura and chicken fried rice. Good cold water constantly refilled. Rice could have been fried a little more -- but that was the only negative.

I have eaten here for many years. The best Thai food in Central Fla. All requests are "Yes" The servers are friendly and helpful. Food can be mild to HOT on request. The duck is crispy. The sauces are lite and flavorful.

DON'T LISTEN TO NEGATIVE REVIEWS. Maybe a competitor. Have visited this place numerous times since October 2013. Highly recommend shrimp soup, hot pepper chicken. Authentic decor, flavor and visited many cities in Thailand. Lunch is a great time of day, and very reasonably priced for the portions. Nothing beats a refreshing Thai tea in the heat. Outstanding customer service.

Much more authentic than Ayutthaya. We enjoy the traditional curries and noodle dishes. The chicken satay is wonderful. Everything we have tried has had excellent flavors. To go service is also excellent. Highly recommended for thai food enthusiasts.
