We split the spring rolls with chili sauce and the chicken fried rice. Lots of food for a great price. The... More

LOVE this restaurant! Not only is the food absolutely amazing but the restaurant is very beautiful! Decorated with a couple murals, and the old thai-style huts that customers can sit in, it's the best place for families to come out and eat! My favorite dishes are the pad-see-ew and pepper garlic pork! Along with some fried wontons! They even have... More

Went to this restaurant because of their top rating and had cravings for Thai. We were sorely disappointed. The Royal Appetizer was definitely not fit for a Royal or a peasant for that matter. It tasted like leftovers that they re-deep fried. Horrible!!! My boyfriend ordered the Combo Fried Rice that did not fulfill his cravings. I had the Pad-See-We.... More

New to Destin last week, we never would have known about the Royal Orchid without all you Trip Advisors. Thank you!!! On entering, we felt we had walked into Thailand. The food convinced us. There were five of us. Voted favorite meal was one with peanut sauce though we liked every dish and can't wait to return.
