Thai Restaurant

Please let me ask you bai the bai
Have you dined at the Royal Thai?
Where I just dined the other dai
And slaked my thirst with cold iced tai?

My friend had ordered Pla Koong flounder
It came, it was a huge four pounder
My friend, who’s round, it made him rounder
When next he ate his way all round her

My wife not ever in a hurry
Ordered a Thai Masaman curry,
It was a dream of shrimp and peas
The likes of which one rarely sees.

My friend’s wife chose the true Thai salad
‘Tis like a poem on the palate
with tofu, chicken and with shrimp
so good it leaves all eaters limp

I had delicious Pad See Ew
The stir fried Thai rice noodle stew
Prepared with pork and eggs, a few
Enough to feed our four man crew.

We shared our dishes and compared
And knew not who the best had fared
But do know all that we there ate
Is not just wonderful, but great.

“20+ years and I still love this place”
Reviewed December 4, 2011

Disregard other reviews about the 'hood. We have been coming here since '89 with nary a problem. Worried about Greenmount Ave? Park in the rear off the alley by the library right at their back door entrance.
We moved away but came back for a visit and were happy to see the same folks.
Even through a couple of owners, the same staff has maintained a charming place over 20 years. Great pad Thai, duck specials, curries. Our children grew up on it. One cannot beat it. The original and most family friendly Thai restaurant in Baltimore.

“Over-priced, small portioned, oily food in an unsafe area.”
Reviewed September 22, 2011

We ordered pad thai ($15), yellow curry ($14) & spring rolls (2rolls-$8). The taste was average, the portions small for the price and pad Thai was very oily. If this is the best Thai in Baltimore, I recommend eating other cuisines while here.

“Impressed, given name”
Reviewed August 7, 2011

I was craving Thai food one day and stumbled in, expecting very little. What I found was an oasis in a shabby section of town. Everything we had was amazing and imwill definitely be coming back
