We enjoyed this Thai restaurant- even me with my dietary restrictions. They have a nice selection of curries and other Thai dishes. Lots of vegetarian & gluten free choices. We ordered the Tom-Yum soup- it is made fresh to order- very good.

Appetizers were amazing. We had crispy rolls and the shrimp paradise. Dinners were well portioned and served in perfect timing to us finishing our appetizers. This is the 2nd time I had been here. I will be back.

You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. If I could eat the Curry Sauce Noodles every day of my life I would! It is SO GOOD. The staff are super friendly and welcoming. Do yourself a favor and stop at this gem!

The Thai food here was excellent! I can definitely recommend the Masman Curry and Pad Thai. Really flavorful. Generous portions. The best part of the Royal Orchid experience was the personal visit from the chef and owner. He came out to make sure that we were happy. And we were. Tucked away along the Central Avenue strip, it was worth... More

We visited the Royal Orchid on a Saturday evening before a show at the Heights theater. Food was well prepared, tasty and we enjoyed it very much. Service was great. We heartily recommend a stop here if you are craving something yummy.

Casual Birthday celebration! The waiter brought us a divine flan like desert with coconut which topped a wonderful meal. All three of us absolutely loved our dinners. I had a dish with rice noodles, tofu, vegetables, etc. the Chardonnay was nice and smooth. Wish this restaurant was in South Minneapolis!
