Like a lot about this place and the food. Only bad thing--when they are busy, you can tell they reuse pots/pans without washing them out. Burnt flecks of previously cooked meals have appeared in my entrees, giving them a yucky and burned flavor. That has been rare, but more than once, and not recently. Otherwise, food and service are great.

Of all the Thai restaurants in Alexandria this is by far the best. Fresh, flavorful and delightful service. I have had the pad thai, pad see ew, both red and green curry and many appetizers and never a disappointment. Very reasonably priced and there is plenty of seating available. The staff is friendly and unobtrusive. Go every time I am in Alexandria.

Most people gripe about the limited seating or price. Prices are what you would expect. Pad Thai with Chicken is 7.95 for a large portion for lunch. IS THIS PRICEY?? No.

Limited seating... considering Tripadvisor has Five Guys burgers as the # 1 and #5 restaurants in alexandria.... Seating here is about the same and shouldnt affect your experience.

I love Thai food and have been to many such restaurants in the area. Most have been decent but nothing to write home (or in this case, TripAdvisor) about.

There is one in Alexandria that I was willing to take the time to write about-Thailand Royal Street Restaurant. It is a few blocks from
the touristy area of Alexandria and in a industrial-type area and building.

However, the food and service are above average and prices reasonable. There are many dishes to choose from and most are standard Thai fare. A few stand outs include house specialty, Pattaya
Seafood. Mussels, calamari, tiger prawn and sea scallops are fresh (and I am very finicky about the freshness of seafood). Bell peppers and onions accompany the fish. The dish arrived in a tin foil packet and was sliced opened by our waiter. My favorite part of the dish was
the sauce of coconut milk, fish broth and roasted chili paste. I soaked every bit of my white rice in the broth.

Other dishes like Pad Thai with chicken and the Papaya Salad are good. Save room for the Mango and Sticky Rice (if it is in season). It is ever so sweet and a great ending to a delicious meal.

The owner, Kem, will greet you as if she has known you her whole life. The waitstaff is attentive, yet allows you to enjoy your meal with little interuption.

Wine and beer selections are extensive. All in all, a good value for the money.
