Disappointing take away. Sharer for 2 contains enough for 1 person and at over £10 it is expensive for the amount you receive. The Pad Thai is not authentic at all, and only tasted of chilli and salt (never in Thailand or even a Thai...restaurant in the UK have I had chillies in a pad Thai?) the chicken satay tasted purely of salt. I will not be returning to this place for a takeaway or sit down meal.More

We had a takeaway from Royal Outpost tonight for the first time and it was ace. Will definitely be back - we love Thai food and have been to Thailand, this was just like we had on our holidays. We had spring rolls, fishcakes and...satay to start - all well tasty. For mains we had Lamb Rendang, Pad Thai and Panang Curry - all really tasty and fragrant. I was a little bit concerned after reading the previous reviews about portions being small, but ours was exactly what we expected - two good size spring rolls, three fishcakes and two Satay - that's exactly what you'd get in Thailand. We were all stuffed at the end of our meal!More

Paid £34 for a take away for 2 consisting of 2 starters and 2 mains with no sides. The portions were really small and although the food came well within the estimated delivery time it was cold and very greasy. Really disappointed and will never...order from them again.More

We decided we’d had enough of the Indian and Chinese lockdown takeaways and after searching on line we decided to try Thai at the Royal Outpost. We are so glad we did - the food was absolutely gorgeous and without doubt the best takeaway meal...we’ve had during the various lockdowns in 20/21. Delicious we’ll be back next weekend and can’t wait to have a sit down meal here one day soon.More

Have been here many times before Covid restrictions, we decided to order online for a delivery, what a disappointment, shared meat platter for two not enough for one, tiny bit of salad, two tiny kebabs, two tiny spare ribs, half a cup of salad, a...spoonful of what I think were noodles, east/west chips about a cupful, good job I ordered rice otherwise we would have been very hungry, we were so looking forward to this but left very disappointed and hungry.More

Everything was delicious. I can only recommend this restaurant. We had the Roasted duck in red curry and chili chicken.

Really lovely food, very authentic and presented well. The restaurant however was like being in and old pub and didn’t feel very oriental nor the music that was played. Full of groups of lads so clearly popular choice for the food but not for a...quiet couple date night if that’s what you are afterMore

Really slow service, and to say there were about 10 staff on shows they’re just dragging their feet. Spent most of the time standing at the bar and chatting amongst themselves. We ordered the mix combo starter for £15 and it was about two bites...each, no value at all. The food itself did taste fine, but no better than that. The lady next to us ordered vegetarian soup and received chicken, so that also didn’t help. On arrival we were a bit lost as it isn’t a shop front it’s above a pub. There were about 5 police officers arresting and detaining a group of people so to say it’s a relaxing atmosphere would be very far from the truth.More

My Mother and I went last week, I am a vegetarian and she is vegan. There were a few options available to me and a couple to my Mother, but all could have been adapted if required. They had 2 vegan starters and sorbets too... More
