“Exceptional Thai Restaurant, Highly Recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2008

***** Five Stars Highly Recommended *****

Great food, outstanding service, tasteful Thai decor.

This wonderful restaurant is a very short distance from the Freeway, in a non-descript shopping center across from Paddock Mall.

The prices are reasonable, the music is soft, the servers are dressed in authentic Thai outfits. And, those servers are very respectful (no "Hi Guys, how are we today?" nonsense). They are extremely prompt, well-trained, and most attentive.

We have not yet had the pleasure of Dinner; we stop for lunch when road-tripping to Tampa or Orlando from our home in Tallahassee. This is THE PLACE to stop for lunch - a peaceful, delicious and welcome break from the Freeway (forget the franchises and the fast food, Royal Orchid Thai is where you want to eat!).

“Great Thai Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2008

We saw this place on trip advisor and decided to go there for dinner while in Ocala on a family visit. It has changed its name to Royal Orchid (which messed us up while trying to find the place) but the staff /owners have not changed. The food and service were wonderful. We would highly recommend this place if you are in the mood for Thai food and are staying in the Ocala area.

“Best Thai in Ocala”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2008

Not a huge place, but the decor is lovely. The staff is friendly and attentive and the food presentation is just beautiful. However, the best part is the food! We eat here at least 3 times a month and have never had a bad meal, even for take out.
