Description: A delicious taste of Thailand in the heart of Dartford, Royal Siam is an elegant restaurant where you’ll enjoy delicious Eastern food in a relaxed, stylish environment. The bright dining room is a comfortable spot to unwind, the space decorated in understated colours and peppered with talking point traditional arts and crafts all the way from Thailand while the front of house staff are beautifully turned out, super-polite and always ready and willing to talk you through the extensive Royal Siam menu. All traditionally Thai, Royal Siam’s food is not only tasty but healthy too, made up of fresh, delicious ingredients low in fat and cooked without additives or unnatural flavourings, with minimal oil and absolutely no monosodium glutamate. Ranging from curries to grilled dishes and stir fries, the Royal Siam menu caters for all tastes and dietary requirements, with plenty of excellent vegetarian options as well as the numerous meat based choices.

“Very disappointing”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

Went to try this after great reviews but left highly disappointed. The starter prawns were served undercooked so we sent them back. The waitress said oh yeh i thought they didnt look right!!! They clearly just refried them and they came to the table charred and rock hard. The phad Thai (how can you get this wrong?!!) was bright orange and the worst I have had the misfortune of eating. We sat opposite the toilets where the doors kept being left open. The food was not worth paying for at all and they was nothing offered in return for the undercooking. Felt very ripped off and would not recommend at all.... Even if they were given the food away for free

“Nice place food not so great”
Reviewed March 10, 2013 via mobile

Had high expectations given other reviews and the fact that this place is now owned by the owners of the adjoining Radhuny which is a personal favourite of mine. Turned up without a booking on a Saturday night and was given a nice table. Lovely restaurant. Staff were very obliging and polite. Menu was extensive and prices seemed cheaper than before the takeover when this was the old Thai Orchid. However we had a few issues with the food. A thick Thai soup had an unpleasant metallic aftertaste. A mommo starter, whilst very tasty, was cold and a main course red curry had inedibly tough chicken. The latter was removed from the bill as soon as we mentioned that we hadn't enjoyed it. Excellent service. Maybe we just turned up on a bad night but I have certainly eaten much better Thai food elsewhere. I'm giving three stars along with the benefit of the doubt as I suspect we will go again and the food will be better. Everything else is fine.

“A wonderful evening”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

My husband and I decided to try this restaurant after reading the reviews. What a gem! Having spent six years in Asia, what a joy to meet with the same high service, beautiful cuisine and wonderful ambience that you only usually find abroad! Dartford really has a gem in this bejewelled restaurant. Every dish was beautifully presented. The staff managed that fine balance between friendly inviting service and professional care with ease and then each dish was an absolute delight! Wednesday evening in Dartford just became Asia and we settled in...

“Excellent food with great service”
Reviewed December 24, 2012 via mobile

We've just had a lovely meal in this restaurant.
The food tastes really fresh and is very typical of Thailand. Lots of spice and flavours.
The waitress service was excellent, and we wanted for nothing.
My only comment would be that their website needs to be updated as the set menus cost more than that shown.
Overall, we'll definitely be back!
