Great Thai. Okay, I've had better Pad Thai, but that's really an American dish. Everything else I've had is definitely above average. Try the excellent curry dishes (my favorites-and they will actually make it Thai hot for me) or some of the basil, ginger, or brown sauce preparations. The atmosphere is nice with subdued lighting. Service is leisurely -- this is not fast food. I like this restaurant well enough to have stopped what I was doing when I was looking up their number to respond to the negative reviews. This is the most authentic Thai restaurant in Brentwood/Cool Springs.
Great Thai food - just pick the right location!. Look folks, This is the review for Royal Thai in Brentwood - not the one on 19th. If you haven't eaten Thai all over the place (or had it prepared by an actual Thai native), you may not know the difference between standard Thai stuff and Thai when it includes Kaffir limes, kha phrao, phrik khi nu, or other authentic Thai flavors. The Royal Thai in Brentwood does it all, and they do a stellar job - you can safely ignore the negative reviews herein as those who simply don't know what real Thai cooking is like, or who went to the store on 19th and had a bad experience. Check out the store in Brentwood - it's fabulous, it's the real deal, you can ask for other Thai things that aren't on the menu, and you can be assured that you're getting the real deal - just don't order some americanized thing like Pad Thai and expect an international epiphani. If you want to make sure you're getting something authentic, ask specifically for something authentic, and ask for the correct spice level.
If you like Thai food, don't eat here..
If this food were pizza, it would be a soggy Domino.
Three of us went to the branch on 19th Ave. The food was under-spiced, some very over-salted and bore very little relationship to Thai food either here or in Thailand. We were not asked how hot we wanted our food nor offered sauces to spice it up.
Also the service was very slow.
Only good Thai in Nashville!. This is the best Thai restaurant in Nashville that I have found. I have been to several and this is the only one that I would go back to. The Thai Iced Tea was great! I had the Thai Green Curry and it was perfect! This is the only Thai Restaurant in Nashville that I would recommend... Delicious!
Don't Waste Your Time!. This is the worst Thai restaurant, not only does their food basically taste like something you can make yourself but better and cheaper, but so does their customer service!!! Not only did my boyfriend and I have to wait atleast 15 minutes to be recognized as waiting for a table, then another 15 minutes to get a table...finally when sitting down we didn't see our waiter for the next 20 minutes. When he finally showed up we ordered our drinks and food and then we never saw him again. We waited for atleast 45 minutes for our food and drinks, we couldn't wait any longer so just got up and left before the order probably even made it to the people microwaving it in the back. While waiting you can look back towards the kitchen and see that the waiters/staff sitting in the back talking and watching TV. If you come here be sure to have lots of time on your hands, because you'll be waiting and wasting a lot of it here!
If you like pre-made, stale and microwaved pad thai, eat here!.
i feel gyped. the pad thai was reheated in a microwave and was the nastiest stuff i have ever attempted to eat.
also, the gigantic grease splatters on the wall in our booth made us wonder if someone didn't decided to throw their order at someone. i wish i had.
The worst Thai food EVER. Don't waste your time or money.
I could see how people like this place if they don't have any knowledge about food. These would be the same people that like Mcdonald's or Taco Bell. Royal Thai is awful. We had to send our plates back because they were dirty. There was a hair in my tea. The food was beyond awful and inedible. The bill was 40 dollars for soup and two entrees. This is the sort of place that give Nashville/Franklin a bad reputation in the food realm.
Seriously, this is some of the worst food we've had in years. Don't waste your money.
Best Thai Food In Nashville. I have been to almost all of the Royal Thai's in Nashville. I used to go to the one in cool springs, but now I moved out here to Hermitage and I am so gratuful that there is a place out here to get fresh asian dishes. The vegetables and meat as well as the herbs are always fresh and you can taste the difference. They also have an exceptional vegetarian menu. I know that one of the reviews said that they were asked to leave at 10:15, but if that is true, they must have come in less than five minutes before close and that is just rude. You should never enter a sit down restaraunt within 30 minutes of their closing time. Regardless, I have never had anything less than exceptional service at any of the Royal Thai restaraunts. The food is great and I recommend taking advantage of the diverse deliciousness that Royal Thai offers.
It's a gamble. We had Pad Thai here on several occasions. Half the time, the pad thai was very good. The other half the time, it was inedible. The last time we visited Royal Thai (this past week), we ordered the bean noodle salad, steamed dumplings, and pad thai. The salad looked half its normal size (I had had it before) and had more iceburg lettuce than anything else. The steamed dumplings were obviously microwaved and therefore difficult to chew. But the coup de grace was the pad thai. It was a big glop of microwaved mess. It also tasted overcooked and burnt. I asked the server when it was prepared and he had the audacity to say that it was freshly prepared. Needless to say, we did not eat that pad thai or order another one. The server--who had not been pleasant to begin with--never apologized and made us feel like we were committing a crime by refusing to eat that atrocity. I have worked at a restaurant before and make a point to never send something back unless the situation absolutely calls for it, and this situation begged for it. If this had been the first time we experienced bad food and service here, we might reconsider the place, but since it's not, we won't go back to Royal Thai again.
This popular minichain brings its flavorful fare to Brentwood..
Set in the Harris Teeter shopping center, this sleek restaurant fills fast with the spicy, exotic aromas this company is known for. The menu, a combination of rice, noodle and curry dishes, reflects common Thai fare. Royal Thai's rendition of tom ka kai soup (chicken, lime juice, lemongrass and kafir leaves in coconut milk) therapeutically soothes a hungry stomach. Chefs prepare dishes as spicy as you choose, from mild to native.
