Tonight we went for a Thai meal. We shared a mixed platter as a starter, then ordered a Thai green curry (chicken) as well as a Masman/Peanut curry (pork)!! This meal together with the service was an unbelievable adventure!! The curries were flavorful and everything one could hope for from Thai cuisine. I recommend this to anyone - remember to... More

We met met by a scent of frying oil, and had we not been tired from drivning all day, I would have left to find another place to eat. The service was not rude, but nowhere near friendly - which was surprising as everybody else we have met have been very friendly. The food was dissapointing. The satay was fried.... More

A delightful surprise to find such good fresh Thai food served with elegance and in decent sized quantities. Smart and simple decor with great service. We also had sushi which was tasty, soup served to taste for chilli heat and very good curries and dishes with rice. Bring your own alcohol if you want it, but certainly give this place... More

Thai Kitchen changed ownership 6 months ago and is now called Royal Siam Thai. It is really real deal authentic Thai food. Duck was really good, service was friendly and the location is quaint. Highly reccommended.

A nice little restaurant with a modern and cosy design. The menu is extensive. They do not have a license for alcohol, so you can bring your own and they do not charge for it. The food is lovely with real Thai flavours. The staff is very friendly. Overall a good restaurant for Thai food.

If you are looking for a no frills and value for money meal out, this is the place for you. The portion sizes were healthy and the food was good. There is little atmosphere with the plastic chairs and tables and buzz with take-away customers coming and going, but that didn't bother us.
