No complaints, except that you need to watch your step or you'll land on your butt. It's kind of dark and there is a step-down that they need to tell you about. The food was very good Thai and the menu is extensive. All the dishes are very tasty. Just watch your step.

While I would say the food is very good the service was terrible. The restaurant was not that busy but the service was so slow and she was a little rude as well. Would only order take out going forward.

This is a very nice family owned business. 4 Thai sisters own and operate. The food is consistent and very tasty. We particularly like the nam sod appetizer and the basil chicken entree. They have brown rice on request.

The food is very good, the service is quick and friendly and the prices are reasonable. I got the pad thai and spring rolls. Everything was delish!

Royal Palace Thai is a very nice family owned restaurant in South Tampa on Howard. It is friendly and warm. The dishes are well-prepared and tasty. We like the basil chicken dish which can be prepared from mild to spicy. The prices are reasonable and the food is very good.

Ordered at 6:00 pm. Had our food at 6:10. It was tasty, spicy and good enough to clean the plate. The portion size was generous without being ridiculous. The price was average, perhaps on the low side for Hyde Park. Quick Tips: Like many Tampa restaurants, the AC is cranking in Royal Palace. Bring a sweater. Parking is onsite and... More

All the classics were great and if you want sushi or Thai don't hesitate to come here. Spicy tuna, Panama curry, basil chicken, salads and soups were as good as you could hope for.

Me and my friend visited this place to grab some lunch. I planned to write a review of this place as I wanted to share the information regarding the quantity served in this restaurant. It's like any other Thai restaurant but the difference being the quantity. Generally when you order fried rice or vegetable noodles, the quantity is more than... More
