Thai House Royale Restaurant
The Thai House Royale located in Station Square was one of the first Thai restaurants that we tried many, many moons ago and has stayed a favourite of ours throughout the years. The food has always been consistently good for us and the staff are always friendly and helpful.
Despite having a fairly large menu selection, their servers know exactly what each number item is… I can barely remember what colour socks I wore today.
We decided to start out with the B2 – Seafood Platter: Deep Fried Calamari, Mussels, Butterfly Prawns, Fish and Shrimp Cakes. The shrimp cake was my favourite part of the dish but if you don’t like fried food, this probably isn’t the dish for you (stick with the Appetizer Platter A).
The 35B Pad Thai was served hot and fresh with plenty of seafood and crunchy bean sprouts.
I wanted to try something a little different than what we normally get so I picked the H1 Boneless Chicken in Red Curry with Fresh Coconut Juice. The menu said that it’s served in a whole coconut but ours came out bubbling hot in a ceramic bowl… not a big deal for me. I was pleasantly surprised to find lots of thinly cut pieces of coconut simmering in the dish because that wasn’t mentioned in the menu description. I’ve never had such tender pieces of coconut before in my life and the red curry sauce with coconut juice was so rich and flavourful… definitely want to have this dish again.
The Freshly Squeezed Lime and Soda at the Thai House is the best I’ve had so far. So many other places don’t use enough lime (or don’t even use freshly squeezed lime juice).
The great thing about the Thai House is they have a lunch special Mondays to Fridays for less than you’d pay at a food court stall. It starts out with a hot and crispy spring roll served on a basic salad along with a cup of hot and sour soup.
The soup is awesome… the perfect amount of spiciness.
Then, you get to pick between a number of different chicken, beef, and pork dishes (smaller versions off their regular dinner dishes) that gets served with rice. Here, we picked number 21 Gai Pad Makuayaw which comes with boneless chicken, eggplant, basil leaves, and jalapeno peppers.
One of my favourite lunch specials is the number 23 Kaeng Kiew Woan Gai (green curry chicken with seasonal vegetables and coconut milk). The green curry sauce is so tasty that I could probably drink it by itself.
