“FANTASTIC!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013 via mobile

The food, service, value for money and atmosphere is perfect! I was highly disappointed to find all restaurants in Sri Lanka that claim to be Thai are far from it or more Chinese. This restaurant is the only one in Sri Lanka that I have come across that serves excellent Thai food that actually tastes and smells like Thai.

Highly recommend it and will definitely be going much more.

“Best Thai Food Ever”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

Royal Thai easily has the best Thai food I have ever had. The food is simply exquisite, never had better tasting food anywhere else.

The restaurant is in a great hotel, and so meeting for a few drinks before a meal in a place with a great atmosphere is possible.

The restaurant has a really authentic decor, and the staff are beyond friendly. Great place to go to for all occasions.

The food is a bit on the pricey side though, so it's not great if you're on a budget. Despite this, it's definitely worth the price for taste.

“Delicious Thai Food in Sri Lanka”

"Royal Thai" restaurant located in Colombo,Sri Lanka has the best Thai cuisine in Colombo. Wonderful Food,attentive Service, good Ambiance is something rare in most restaurants & this place has it all.This restaurant over the years has maintained very high quality food. I went there without a reservation & was welcomed by the attentive & professional staff. Our Table of 5, was served by a waiter named Chaminda that new his job well, recommended popular dishes, & was very attentive to our needs thoughout the meal. Definitely will go back again.
