“Disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014 via mobile

We have been quite a few times before and always had a good meal. We ordered a mixed starter. The prawn crackers had been included as part of the mixed starter, clearly obvious it was to fill the plate up. The satay & prawn toast were tiny portions. In light of this I will not be visiting royal bankok in the near future.

“Lovely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2013 via mobile

A lovely little Thai with a great atmosphere and very good service. The food is authentically cooked and the portion size is good. The decor is old and somewhat tired but that's all. Will be back.

“The best Thai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013 via mobile

Have been going for years and this place is fantastic. So much so that the boss helped us with our wedding food. Yes the place is a bit tired looking and yes some of the food is bought in but when you get down the authentic Thai flavours and freshness of the cooking it's pretty damn good. If u want to look at the place from a fine dining point, you ain't gonna get it , but if you want very good authentic Thai food then it's brilliant. You will miss this when the boss has to retire I promise you.

“Restaurant good but erratic opening times”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

I have been to the Royal Bangkok a few times when working in the Stafford area. Every meal has been good and is decent value.

One complaint is the erratic, unreliable opening times.

If the restaurant is quiet then they just close. They don't stick to publsihed opening times. This has happened 3 times to me and I am getting to the stage where I won't bother wasting a trip into town. It happened again tonight. I arrived at 9:40pm and the guy was just shutting the door.

So if you expoct to eat late, especially on one of the quieter nights, then ring first and check.

Personally I have given up and won't go back. They are unreliable.
