My mom and I went to Royal Thai Cuisine on, what I like to call, a “mom date”. She had a $25 gift certificate so we thought we would give it a try.
Atmosphere – We ate lunch on a Saturday afternoon around 1 PM. It was pretty empty, but the restaurant was 1/3 full when we left. The restaurant was clean and decorated like other Thai restaurants I’ve been too.
Staff & Service - The staff was friendly and attentive. No empty glasses of water and the food came out at a good pace.
The Food – For starters, we had stuffed won-tons and chicken satay (pictured above). The pork-stuffed won-tons, served with a sweet, sticky sauce (perhaps honey?), was good. The satay was served with a peanut-type sauce and somet cucumber-basil sauce. I preferred the cucumber sauce to the peanut sauce — although I love peanut-hoisin sauce with Vietnamese spring rolls.
We also ordered a Thai tea and Thai iced coffee. Both were delicious.
The shrimp lad na was swimming in gravy. It was good, but I usually order pad see-u or pad thai so I’m not sure how to rank it in comparison to other lad na’s. My mom seemed to love it.
We also ordered fried fish with 3 spices (non-spicy) and rice. I believe the fish was tilapia. I wasn’t a fan of all the vegetables piled on top, but the sauce was sweet and delicious.
Bottom Line – I would try Royal Thai again, but I think I would stick to my usual order.
