We came in from out of town and my parents recommended this. It was our first time eating Thai and we loved it and will definitely return.

We live in Deep Creek and this is the best Thai food restaurant around. It's not extraordinary, we had much better Thai restaurants in Seattle, but the Royal Thai is very good and we would go back again. Very friendly too!

My wife and I have been wanting to try Royal Thai for some time and this week we did. Food was excellent - we shared a Chicken Pad Thai and Pork Panang. Both were delicious and plentiful. We brought enough home for lunch the next day. We also had spring rolls which were very good but not the best I've... More

Finally tried this highly-recommended Thai restaurant and are glad we did. We went on a July Sunday, around 6 pm, a spur of the moment idea. I phoned ahead to ask if we could get a table. Since we were only two people, they said we could just walk in. For larger groups of 4 or more, it would be... More

Although I have not had much thai food I thought the shrimp pad thai was excellent. There were only 5 shrimp which I thought was not enough for all the noodles but the sauce was outstanding. My fiancee had the house fried rice with pork, shrimp and chicken and it was also quite tasty. The decor was a bit run... More

This restaurant is not the cheapest Thai that I have found and the service is not the fastest, but the food is worth the wait

Authentic, delicious Thai food. Having lived in Thailand for half a dozen years, it was a surprise to find such a fine restaurant in Florida! Panang curry is divine. Love their eggplant. Don't hold back, order enough to take a bit home.

This is an excellent Thai food restaurant. I finally made it there last week and it lives up to the word of mouth and my expectations. The menu is very broad with an excellent selection of Thai dishes from appetizers, to the typical Pad Thai, to a great selection of other meals. We split a couple appetizers which were tasty,...

Great food, excellent service. They handled my food allergies perfectly. The Tom Yum soup was the best I've ever had. The berry duck was perfect. My Royal Thai fried rice was wonderful. The scallops were done to perfection. The service was extremely pleasant and helpful. The owner / cook even came our and sat down with us. Try their thai... More
