Royal Thai is a favorite for my friends and I. Convenient meet up near Chinatown where the food and drinks are always good and the service is friendly and efficient.
Good service. Good food. Pleasant atmosphere.
Excellent restaurant! Great service and great food!
Wonderful Green Curry and Eggplant. Royal Thai is a gem.
Service was great and the Penang curry was yummy. Lots of choices for vegetarians (just ask no oyster/fish sauce). Nice ambience inside although you wouldn't necessarily know that from the outside. They also have a 50% off alcoholic drinks if you check in through yelp.
Another great visit to Royal Thai! Introduced my family to this great restaurant that always provides great service and excellent Thai food!
I’m a repeat customer & can always count on Royal Thai for great food at a very reasonable price both in their restaurant and at home with free delivery!
I have lived in Bangkok for two years so I know my Thai food. This was not Thai food. This was the typical American Thai food that you get. I noticed that most of the staff and presumably the owners are Thai so I was even more disappointed because they must know what real Thai food should be cooked like and taste like.
I should have suggested going elsewhere as soon as I walked in and smelled a strong chemical smell. Floor wax? Cleaning supplies? Pesticides? But my dining companions were already seated so I joined them, thinking I might be overly sensitive. Servers were pleasant and relatively attentive, but the food was just awful. The crispy chicken (one of the house specialties) was essentially a bowlful of small pieces of fried batter — maybe there was chicken inside, but it was barely noticeable. The house special seafood was just mediocre. All in all a very disappointing meal.
This is a great place for lunch. The food is excellent, the service is fabulous and did I mention the food is great? I frequently meet friends here for lunch. We can have a nice meal for two for $25 (including Thai iced tea) with excellent, unobtrusive service and a nice ambience. It's quiet enough to have a conversation without shouting and the staff are friendly. I especially like the Wonsoon noodles with chicken and the mango chicken, but they have a wide array of vegetarian meals as well.
Good food, good service but small tables, large plates.........................
The food was excellent. We had the penang curry, and green curry pad thai.
This restaurant is like a hidden gem. The entrance looks small but they have a lot of space on the second floor. We got our own private room for a group of 20 and had a wonderful time. The staff are super friendly and very nice. Food is very good with reasonable prices. Highly recommend this place!
My husband felt like Thai for a late night dinner when visiting Washington D.C. We found Royal Thai by the reviews but food didn't quite live up to the better reviews. Tom Kha soup had good flavor as did the Chicken Satay but the Spring Rolls and Pad Thai were very bland.
This was our second visit to Royal Thai. We live an hour away from D.C. and our first visit came before a Caps' game. When we knew we were returning to D.C. this weekend, even though it would be out of the way and a time squeeze, we knew that we wanted to return. Our very favorable recollection of the deliciousness of the food was definitely confirmed. We enjoyed the veggie spring rolls, fried green beans, and other delicious dishes that I can't spell :). My husband and I agreed we'd probably drive to D.C. just to come here.
Quick and yummy
The best Thai food I've tasted in a long time. I had the mixed vegetables with chicken: totally delicious and healthy! The Waitress was very attentive and knowledgeable. I can't wait to visit again.
Royal Thai was able to accommodate our work happy hour very nicely! The flow of apps and drinks for our large party was great and we didn't have to pay upfront for a pre-fixed menu, etc.
Highly recommend the space upstairs for work type happy hour events of 15 ish people.
They seem to be cutting corners. I felt like my lunch was left over from the day before. They need to step up their game and make things fresh.
