Reviewed January 13, 2014 via mobile

Having family up from Sydney where they dine often at authentic thai restaurants, we didn't know where to take them. Trip advisor made the decision quickly for us. I have been there a few times in in the past. We were ok with the service with water straight up, I loved that. the food was great in flavour (had to ask for more rice, thought the servings were small for the price of the food) there wasn't too many people in there being a Monday night, was surprised that I had found it difficult to get staffs attention for requests. I would still go back again as well as the visitors. Yes they asked us how we found them, yes we said trip advisor

“Thai food subtly adapted to Europeans tastes”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

The Lunch menu is about 15 tried and tested favourites ranging from $10 to $15. Dinner, you need to book and the food is spectacularly good. Chef's creed is:fresh, high quality ingredients plus subtle use of spices. BYO helps keep the price down. Staff make you feel welcome and always check on progress. Lunch or dinner you can't miss.

“Loved It”
Reviewed December 20, 2013 via mobile

After reading previous reviews decided to try the place. Best decision ever! The staff are friendly and helpful, the food was fantastic and served hot. We had the mixed entre, garlic calamari, seafood combination and coconut rice. The seafood was exceptional which is saying something for Toowoomba. Loved the coconut rice highly recommend that little add on. We will return with out a doubt.

“Cheap and authentic- one of the best.”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

My mother and I have eaten multiple times at this establishment and have nothing but praise. Firstly, the food is fresh and very flavourful with minimal sweet, syrupy sauces you typically see in other asian restaurants. This actually tastes like thai food and not some pre packaged Maggi marinade mix. They also make a very chilli hot laksa, and they have accommodated my mum's preference for real asian hot with no qualms. Really nice little shop with friendly service and authentic cheap food- pretty much one of the best in Toowoomba. With their generous lunch special, a no-brainier.

“Pretty average”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

We ordered take-away to be delivered from here, coming close to and hour of waiting I called Thai Royal enquiring about our order. I understand by comments and reviews that it is a busy place but our order was small and simple (mixed entree and pad Thai). The lady on the phone put me on to someone with more knowledge, he was great, said that our order hasn't been lost/ forgotten, it's on its way and he'll call the driver. About 3-4 minutes later a little car pulled up will our delivery. 2 minutes after that I got a phone call and it was that guy saying the driver is on his way. I said, yep we just got it thankyou for chasing it up for us. The food was very average, spring rolls were good and chicken satay skewer, but the beef satay skewer, battered prawns, and fish cakes were not nice and also the same with the pad Thai, bland, no nuts, no fresh lime to squeeze on. Disappointing feed after waiting and hour and being excited when we first ordered.
