Description: Thai cuisine combines the best of gastronomic exoticism and culinary pleasure and the best place in which to indulge in it is at the Royal Thai. Overlooking a paved terrace, Royal Thai delights guests with authentic Thai food prepared by Thai master chefs, in a peaceful and serene ambience. The restaurant also has an elegantly furnished private dining room, which could be reserved for private gatherings. Voted Best Thai Restaurant in Colombo, Sri Lanka.

The Royal Thai has continued along its serene way, through the many changes of ownership at what is now the Cinnamon Lakeside. Throughout all those changes - at least three that I can think of - the restaurant has consistently delivered high quality Thai food. Not cheap, but very good.

Authentic Thai food at its best. The ambience truly makes you feel like Royalty and the food doesn't disappoint. The Tom Kha Ghai (Chicken soup in coconut milk) is one of my personal favourites and is well worth the Rs. 500+ it costs. The Thai papaya and mango salads are also highly recommended for those who love some sugary sourness in their salads.
The Thai Green curry here is the best I've tasted in Sri Lanka and whilst I personally prefer my Thai curries with steamed jasmine rice, the Pad Thai and the seafood fried rice at Royal Thai are also exceptional.
Service has been mostly very good though the odd delay and slip up is to be expected since the restaurant is often crowded. The cost for a meal for two comprising a starter, rice/pad thai with three dishes and dessert has been around Rs.6000. All in all, a fine restaurant to go to if you are in the mood to splurge a little!

This is one of the best hotel restaurants that I have eaten in. The food is exceptional and the service could not be faulted. The staff were efficient and did everything possible to ensure a real fine-dining experience.
