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).

We had the spring rolls (both deep fried and soft wrap) and they were very good. We also had the Thai Royal Flush which was also delicious but we found that the portion was on the small side. Service was friendly and fast.

We go to Royal Thai once a week during our couple+ months on the Island, either to eat-in or take-out. It's our favorite Thai restaurant! It's a family-owned and worked. Every dish is excellently prepared with very fresh ingredients and wonderful, interesting sauces! We love...More
