Description: Thai cuisine combines the best of gastronomic exoticism and culinary pleasure and the best place in which to indulge in it is at the Royal Thai. Overlooking a paved terrace, Royal Thai delights guests with authentic Thai food prepared by Thai master chefs, in a peaceful and serene ambience. The restaurant also has an elegantly furnished private dining room, which could be reserved for private gatherings. Voted Best Thai Restaurant in Colombo, Sri Lanka.

Great food, not as good as my last visit but I will go back soon for another meal soon as it is very good.
My last meal was exceptional, the meal before was exceptional as was the meal before that.
My only concern was the beef was tough and the whole fish was not served properly. The waiter kind of mashed up the fish so a mouthful of bones was unavoidable.

I liked the ambiance of the restaurant. It's really nice. The food is awesome. Service was ok. Not that great. As well the menu had more Chinese food than Thai. I didn't see many traditional Thai dishes.

I was surprised to find a restaurant with such an amazing quality of thai flavor. It is the official thai restaurant of the Cinnamon Lakeside hotel and is next to a bar with a patio that overlooks the lake. Try to get outdoor seating. We got a romantic little outdoor table between two columns which was nice for privacy.
My rating would be Excellent is the service was as amazing as the food.

It is a nice place and a nice setting.
Being a Thai food fanatic it is nice to know that there is at least one place in Colombo where you don’t get disappointed.
Their curries are tasty and spicy enough to give that kick you expect from Thai food.
The food is on the expensive side but not unreasonable considering the location.
For sure I will come again.

The food was good variety excellent. They do original Thai. The service and desserts are good too. The place could get too crowded at times and space between tables is a little too narrow.
