This is a gem of restaurant with fabulous Thai dishes. Bring your own bottle helps with the costs. Potions are generous so be prepared. Your taste buds are taken on an oriental journey.

We had dinner at the Royal Siam Thai during our 2 night stay in Kynsa. We had looked at restaurants down at the quay area and these seemed very nice but not our preference. We were looking for something less mass market. We took our own wine as the restaurant as no alcohol license and had a superb meal. We... More

Fresh, authentic and friendly. You'll go a long way to beat the value and quality of this place. Don't forget to bring your own wine etc. They don't have a licence

This was the best massage ever!!! The ladies knew how to ease sore muscles and put back everything into where it should be. We have had massages all over the world and would come back here daily if we could. The therapists were soothing yet firm and my back and neck have never felt better. If we had not had... More

We stumbled upon this place while walking thru town. What a great find. The Thai massage was so good we decided to give the food a try. It was our waitresses first day. She was great! The food was fresh and delicious and service was quick

Overall my experience here was great. Food is textured and each dish is vastly unique. Great range of offering and cooked in a true traditional Thai way. My only gripe is once we complained about a wrong order the Thai waiter argued and walked off muttering under his voice. Food is worth it none the less.

Walked in looking for a quick bite to eat, presently surprised with friendly staff and decor of restaurant. Ordered spring rolls, possibly the freshest tastiest we have ever had with a delicious dipping sauce!!! Will return to try more times on the menu.

We lived in Thailand for 4 years until moving to Knysna 8 months ago and this was our first venture into a Thai restaurant since as we did not want to be disappointed - the food everywhere in Thailand is superb. The menu was not entirely Thai with mixes of Chinese and Japanese but mainly Thai. The Staff were very... More
