I had a dish here which was supposed to be rib eye beef. It was not nice. Will not be back. Staff were not very nice to us when I expressed my disappointment.

While staying in Salthill we went for dinner on 1 evening to the Royal Villa Restaurant which is a 5 minute walk from our hotel. The food is so fresh and a lovely range of dishes are on the menu. I had the chicken and black bean and my husband had the Satay. Both were so tasty! They have a... More

Visited this restaurant after reading multiple reviews. Unfortunately, we were severely disappointed. I love Thai Curry and I love spicy food. Therefore, it only made sense to order the Thai Curry. When I received it, it had very little taste, flavor, or spice. Additionally, the texture was extremely strange. When the waiter asked about the food, I let him know... More

The ambience of this restaurant was perfect. Lighting and decor created the perfect mood. The food was lovely - not michelin class but a good chinese restaurant. The waitress was very helpful and made sure our special requests could be accommodated. I had a lovely Thai Green curry.

Dined here a good few times. When lead to our table it wasn't even set. Ordered our food and drink. Food was out in 3 minutes so I'm guess it was preheated chicken itself was quite cooled for mains wasn't very impressed. Had to ask 3 times for salt

Went here to eat last Friday night and it was yummy. It was not busy but it was 9:30pm when we went in to eat. There was plenty of friendly staff and the food was quick coming out the kitchen. The wine was a little pricy but the food was good value and very tasty.

Great location, friendly staff but that's where the pros end. The cons; food wasn't great, certainly not worth what we paid. Chicken was dry & tough. The place could do with new carpet, you couldn't take one step without sticking to it. Almost like being in a nightclub where carpet is sticky from lots of drink having been spilled.

I like the place. The staff and service are excellent. The food is not of the dynamic fusion type that you get in other Asian places. I wouldn't describe it as exciting but more traditional and good.

Fabulously decorated inside and looks so elegant and sophisticated but we found the place to be very cold and had to leave our jackets on. That wasn't the only thing that was cold, our food was luke-warm and it arrived literally 3 minutes after we ordered it which we found very peculiar.. The food was ok but don't know if... More
