“Best Thai cuisine in Colombo ”
Reviewed 30 January 2014 via mobile

Royal Thai once again treated us to a sumptuous dinner. The Wok fried prawns and Snapper red curry were so delicious. The ambience and the service were excellent. One if the best Thai cuisine I have experienced even outside Sri Lanka. All the best to the staff.

“Authentic Thai Food”
Reviewed 21 January 2014

Nice indoor ambiance, the thai red curry was really authentic and they also serve good cocktails.... My colleague tried the pork starter and supposed to be really good.

“Pretty tasty Take away Thai in Hobart”
Reviewed 29 December 2013 via mobile

We popped in for some fast take away Thai here. The staff were helpful in meeting our special dietary needs. My veggie fried rice was pretty good! Recommended.

“Tasty food failed to compensate for the terrible service”
Reviewed 27 December 2013

Nice setting, with good food. However the service was close to the worst Ive experienced from a restaurant of this calibre. The waiters were slow, inefficencient, clumsy and rude. It took 15 minutes and numerous reminders just to get a menu. The food took long and was served carelessly- and i noticed this clumsiness at other tables too. The many waiters were running around in chaos, although the restaurant was not even full. This is the third time I visited in the last 6 months and the service has disappointed on every occasion. Will not be visiting again!

“Salted to death”
Reviewed 26 November 2013 via mobile

A most beautiful setting n decor , cocktail well made, staff friendly n accommodating. Extensive menu, however I ordered the Phad na Sewang ( no 78 ) n caught the short straw- so very, very salty-my arteries stiffened on the spot. When pointed out, twice, in response to how the meal was, I said it was way too salty for my palate, I received a smile. A nice smile. Squeezing lime juice over it only helped slighty. I wouldn't let my experience put u off attending. Just state yor preferences re salt.!
