I have visited the holiday inn on many occasions but not the royal Buddha, was delighted with the experience from the staff specially Sanka who recommended a few dishes, for those who love duck try the roast duck with veg and tamarind sauce fantastic. Definitely recommend great food

If you like Thai food, make sure you visit this restaurant and reasonably priced and one of the best Thai Green curries we've ever had, just wished we could have visited more than once!

My wife and I went for a Dim Sum Friday Brunch Buffet and we both were totally bowled over by the service, quality and friendliness of the staff. They were very helpful and welcoming and the food was made to perfection. The atmosphere and ambience were both very peaceful and laid-back, hence we both enjoyed this lunch to our fullest.... More

It's my first time here since many of my friends recommended that it's the best Thai restaurant in town (They've been to many Thai restaurants and they voted Royal Budha as the best one).

What a spoiler on our Anniversary evening..we went for the Dimsum Friday and the service was one of the worst we have experienced. The servers behaved as if they are doing us a favor by serving, would like to mention we are paying for the service plus food. In the mid of the food we waited for good 40 minutes... More

After living in Thailand for 2 years, I know what authentic Thai food taste like so my expectations were high! Well this place did not disappoint! We had sea bass, pineapple fried, and cashew chicken. It was excellent. In my opinion. I would recommend the spicy glass noodle salad...delicious. They also have a nice selection of wines. Service was outstanding!!!!

A modern-style Thai restaurant inside a Holiday Inn hotel. They have a fast and attentive service, and the portions seemed authentic and they were really tasty. The price level was a bit high in my opinion. Most importantly, they do serve alcohol.
