“Not a happy ending”
Review of Royal Siam

Royal Siam
Ranked #169 of 355 Restaurants in Port Elizabeth
Cuisines: Thai
Restaurant details
Reviewed 12 November 2013

We didn't mind the venue and found the owner and staff very accommodating for our wheelchair as the restaurant is not easy to access. Service was good and we ordered the red curry chicken and butternut and the red curry beef. The food is reminiscent of homely Thai cooking and not entirely authentic but enjoyable. We ate at 7.30 and exactly 8 hours later my husband was terribly ill. The symptoms were those of Clostridium perfringens, a bacteria associated with chicken that is not promptly served or refrigerated or is reheated. I called the restaurant but was told that it was "impossible" that this could have come from their kitchen. I hope for future patrons' sake that this is the case but I sincerely doubt it. Unfortunately can't go back.

Food was pleasant but the environment is more of a take-away joint than a restaurant. Service was great but could do a lot to improve the atmosphere.

Good value, new menu and reasonable.
Atmosphere could be improved, but friendly Thai waitresses and genuine Thai cuisine

I have eaten at the Royal Siam on a number of occasions and have never had a bad meal. The food is very authentic and is cooked by Thai ladies who also double up as masseurs during the daytime.
The real deal.
