This is a great unassuming restaurant the food is good and cooked fresh to order. You can add levels of spice. I had the chicken panang curry, tom sum soup and Thai salad over my 2 visits. All were yummy.

Pleasant, delicate yet flavorful blend of spices. Nice comfortable environment with local music in the background. Attentive staff. We’ll probably be back to try additional menu items.

The curry was hard to beat. Some of the best Kari I've ever had. My daughter had the chow mein and it was so good we had to go back for another visit which I didn't mind at all. The service was excellent also.

I ordered Pad Woonsen and it was terrific. It came out piping hot and at just the level of spiciness I requested. The egg roll I ordered was also delicious. Staff were courteous.

The bad- its in a strip mall with a glass front offering a view of the parking lot and they don't have a bar. The Good- food is tasty, service is good, kitchen is fast, prices are low (very low for Kona).

Stopped in for lunch with a couple of friends. The food was fresh and loaded with flavor! Menu items are sharable. Heat level preferences at our table ranged from somewhat mild to extremely hot and they accommodated all. I wish Royal Thai Café was in...More
