So my son who goes to Baylor have now ate here twice ( Dinner & Lunch) and BOTH times same ole story. Very good Tai food but HORRIBLE service. It all starts with getting seated where they have NO hostess to get customers to a table. Then once at your table it takes 10 min for anyone to bring you... More

Good portions of food. Not too much but just right:). Good food- loved the Thai iced tea. Not too crowded and good atmosphere for conversations.

Living in a city with less than stellar Thai options, and having eaten authentic Thai food before, it was a very pleasant surprise to stumble upon this gem of a restaurant while visiting Waco. We enjoyed the Tom Yum Seafood soup and the Pad Kee Mao. While the portions were not large, they would be sufficient for a single serving.... More

Extremely good Panang and Pad See Yu. Very well priced and quickish service. Not the most friendly but went to eat and not talk...

Maybe we had low expectations based on the reviews, but my nephew lives in Waco and said it was the best (maybe only) Thai in town. The waitress was quick to take our order and accommodated a special request to bring the toddler's food right away. Everything else came quickly and was delicious. This will be a regular stop when...

The first thing to hit you is the unfriendly Thai guy that seats you. Thais are some of the friendliest and welcoming people, unfortunately this guy is not one of them. The food soup is nothing like an authentic Thai soup, and both the green and yellow curry's lack the "Thai Taste". I've been several times hoping that the food... More

I've been here several times, each time hoping that the service will improve. Unfortunately it hasn't. There is no Thai hospitality shown in any way. Servers stretch on front of you to clear plates. Food is average and the "Soup" is nothing like authentic Thai soups.

It's refreshing to be able to visit a restaurant and know that the food will always be consistently tasty. When you want authentic Thai food Bangkok is spot on. Waco's finest food quality made to order dishes. Don't forget this is Waco not New York, down home setting, close to Baylor, the River and located in the downtown area. Put... More

I crave Thai food and we have therefore gone to Bangkok Royal several times - wanting to give it a chance. But every time we have been there the service is awful - the one young guy is rude and inattentive and I think he thinks he gets away with because he can hide behind the language barrier - yet...
