Description: Royal Orchid is a Multi Award winning brand and has been one of the most popular names when one thinks of Thai & Chinese Cuisine. Our outlet at Salam Street is a cosy, casual unlicensed, family friends branch with Private Dining Rooms. Royal Orchid at the Hilton is great for enjoying Chinese and Thai delicacies with a glass of wine. We offer Dine in, Take Out, Home Delivery & Catering.

The food here is impressive and service is good but slow. We keep going back there. I don't think it is authentic thai (food is quite different from what I remember when I visited Thailand). Nevertheless delicious food but slightly on the expensive side.

First things first - there are 2 Royal Orchid restraunts at Abu Dhabi. One at the Hilton Corniche and then this one at Salam / Electra Street. If you've been to the one at Hilton you will really wonder how on earth can the two be so different in service and taste (if they belong to a common management) or why on earth would the brand owner do this to their brand (if they belong to different franchises). This one at Salam Street has really sloppy service, staff who seem to be really unhappy with what they do and going by the taste and quality of food, a chef who is probably even more unhappy and all of it shows in the quality and service. Stick to the one at the Hilton. Thats a gem and this one is a waste of an experience!!

Actually pretty good Thai restaurant, cozy in the Hilton 1st floor. Flavor, it seems , is mild, though you can always add chili paste.

Tucked in the Hilton on the upper floor - great food mix of Chinese and Thai. Food was excellent as was the service and all reasonable price at about £25 a head until you order wine - spanish bottle of red was nearly as much as the meal. However still 10/10 just go and enjoy
