Great Place for Thai Food – New to town my wife had the cravings for Thai Food so based on City search I took her to this restaurant. New to town I was not sure how to get to their restaurant they gave us prompted direction to their restaurant and we were there without getting lost. Once arrived at the restaurant they promptly seated us, since it was a nice weather outside I asked them if we could seat outside and they right away cleaned un used table and seated us outside. Fast service with food and great food. It was good food for wife and not too expensive for my wallet for the nice environment you would receive at Royal Palace.
Best Thai food in Tampa – Being a recent transplant to the Bay area I found this to be like the Thai food that I'm used to: flawlessly seasoned, fresh vegetables and large selection of options. If you're an epicurist Royal Thai will not disappoint. Worth every penny and there is very little competition in Tampa. Although it's pricier than the competition, the flavorful food experience more than makes up for it.
Easily one of the best in Florida – The menu is quite accomplished and definitely deserving of praise, considering their dishes are proudly traditional and closer to true Thai cuisine, than a lot of the other Americanized fare served around Tampa. Having actually been to Thailand, I will attest this is one of the best Ive had in the states. The Panang curry & lobster was rated one of the best in the nation by Zagats. The atmosphere is by far above average with its elegant, all wood interior and Asian influenced architecture. Dining on the open-air patio during the evening is a must. Start with Thom Car soup with real galangas and fresh lemongrass. Id recommend any Panang or red curry dish with Sing Ha beer. Their Pad See Yew is fantastic as well. Located on S. Howard in Hyde Park, well within walking distance of Starbucks and other shops for an after dinner stroll.
Excellent Thai – My husband I and eat here frequently. It's our favorite take-out, although the atmosphere is very nice if you're in the mood for a night out. We love the curries. I think they have the best pad thai around. Service is excellent. It's very professionally run; the owner is almost always on site and she's a really great person.
I bring out of town guest here and my new date. Excellent food, great prices right in Hyde Park. The place is nice and rarely empty. On a nice evening, you can sit outside.
Fast Service, Overpriced – The service was great, food was out fast, have to pay for basic drink refills, and the food is overpriced compared to the amount of food.
Delicious Thai specialties in an incomparably elegant setting. – The Scene
A light wood interior, fish tank housing mesmerizing tropical fish, colorful tapestries, Siamese accents, and a porch that overlooks Restaurant Row. The stunning interior, fortunately, is not in keeping with the prices on the menu, which are moderate.
Fresh, crisp vegetables; rich, thick sauces bursting with flavor; perfectly-spiced meats; flavorful curries. Start off with some crispy spring rolls, and move on to Tom Yum, a sumptuous coconut soup overflowing with fresh veggies. Next, order the red curry, a spicy stew of meat, bamboo shoots, baby corn and other veggies over fluffy rice. Other excellent dishes include Pad Thaisoft rice noodles with meat, crushed peanuts, and bean sprouts in a spicy peanut sauce; the Seafood Panang, a rich stew of scampi, red snapper, scallops and calamari broiled with vegetables and smothered in a delicious coconut sauce; or any one of the glazed duck dishes. If you have room, top it off with Thai fried ice cream.
Best in USA – Me and my wife ate 300 times in this restaurant.
More Shrimp Than I Could Eat – Both the Pad Thai and that evenings special shrimp dish were prepared perfectly. Wonderful sauces, soups and appetizers as well. We will return!
spiced right! – Between the great decor and wonderful scents in the air, they manage to give each customer food tailored to their taste. Ordering spiciness at ROyal Thai is mor than mild or hot, you can chose between four or five levels of spice. A bit pricy but great food and service!
