We live nearby and visit this restaurant for dinner or take out often. The 2 person sampler is a great choice for an appetizer. A nice assortment of crab Rangoon, pot stickers, fried spring roll, etc. I like the yellow curry with chicken and the crispy pad Thai in particular. The tofu here is also recommended. They are BYOB with... More

My wife and I have gotten take-out from here at least a half dozen times. My wife has Celiacs Disease, so she cannot seat gluten and she never seems to get sick after eating here. I like the green curry and she like the pad thai. Very good food!

We tried a different Thai restaurant in the neighborhood. We had a window seat, and enjoyed the activity both inside and out. We ordered the vegetable dumplings to start, with Jasmine tea. He had the Pad Thai and I the Royal Pad Thai dishes. The food was flavorful and our server made certain that she had our order correct.

This Lincoln Square Thai restaurant has a decent ambiance, good service (it appears to be family owned), lower than average prices, and solid Pad Thai. The other members of my party also enjoyed their meals and actually brought me there on their second visit, so they like the place a lot. I agree with them. We'll probably go there again... More

Royal Thai is our go-to Thai restaurant. Wonderful food. Nice atmosphere more often found in a pricier dining establishment. Good service. Reasonable prices. The menu is loaded with great options too.

Me and my fiancé went for Valentine's Day. The service was horrible. We ordered 3 appetizers and they took a hour to bring them out . They tried to bring out our entree before our appetizers. When we received our food it was horrible. It had been sitting out and the noodles were cold and sticky plus it tasted like... More

Our go to place for local Thai food. Very authentic. Very affordable. Love the BYOB aspect to keep the overall price of dinner low. Service is always good and attentive. Lastly ... They deliver. Wonderful service on a snowy Chicago night.

Very nice, casual place that reminded me of my days in Thailand. Authentic Thai cuisine with great variety. The 3 kids enjoyed it as well.

I went with three other girlfriends. We split two apps (potstickers, crab rangoon) and three meals (pineapple fried rice, pepper chicken, and pad thai). Our bill was $9 each. SAY WHAAA??!!

The large attractive dining room seats about 30 comfortably, and the kitchen cranks out fresh vegetable dishes and spicy seafood entrees daily. Try the Royal Thai prawns or vegetable dumplings for an appetizer and the ginger chicken for an entree. Other dishes include kee mow (stir-fried noodles, lettuce, carrots, onions, bell peppers, bean sprouts, tomatoes and basil leaves), green curry, and Royal Thai Tofu. Lunch specials include an appetizer of your choice, soup (try the Tom Yum) and an entree today. Come to Royal Thai tonight for a charming, delicious BYOB Thai experience.
