The food was really good though a little spicier than the Thai food that we are used to and portion sizes were huge and we ended up leaving over half the food... More

I was at Royal Thai yesterday for the 4th time this year to bid farewell to a colleague. Royal Thai maintains consistently excellent standards overall. Definitely the best Thai food in town. Very professional service with the staff ready to give advice on what to choose. The restaurant is also very versatile in that it caters to all types of... More

The dinner was good at Royal Thai. Specially the pineapple rice. Minimum two must attend for the dinner since portions are bit large for a single guy. The food and the atmosphere is good in there

Well appointed restaurant with plenty of staff - although we all rated the service as just average - was hard to attract the waiters attention, once we had it, things were fine. On a number of occasions we had to stand up and walk towards a staff member to get their attention. Staff need more training to be visually scanning... More

This restaurant is located in the Cinnamon Lakeside Hotel. It is just a km away from Galle Face Road. The waiter serving us was rude and abrupt.So was the lady captain. The quality of food was very good. It is because they have a good Thai chef. Vegetarian options are decent. It would cost 3000 sri lankan rupees per person.... More

The cooking has carefully thought of the delicate palates of it's patrons. The vegetables were super fresh and the desserts were excellently Thai.

The food is quite authentic and delicious. The service is first class. They pamper you with a refreshing towel and continue to serve individual portions of the food. Ambience is nice and intimate; not too large a restaurant. Good job; keep it up. Only suggestion is perhaps to have a couple of daily specials.

Massive selection of Thai dishes (plus some others Chinese and Sri Lankan dishes) in buffet style. The setting of buffet line spread over the terrace both ready made and cook to order dishes. Tom yam soup and papaya salad are the hero of the buffet. The restaurant is beautifully decorated. The staffs were very good. Highly recommend to try this... More

we visited here during our stay at lakeside. Very friendly staff and good food. If you are in the mood for a wholesome meal, try the sunday brunch at their dining room!

Best Thai food is served at Royal Thai. Food is very tasty and offer an excellent variety on the menu including fresh seafood, meats and vegetable. Specially prefer the prawn in chilie sambol and beef red curry. Service is impeccable. Recommend to make a reservation as the restaurant tends to be full on weekends.
