Saddle Mountain Brewing Company Exterior

From the food to the sawasdee ka welcome as you enter the restaurant, Royal Jasmine Thai brings a traditional taste of Thailand to the Phoenix suburbs. The interior is light and semi-luxurious, with elements of the restaurant’s homeland punctuating the decor. The menu covers all of the Thai favorites, and then some. There is a wide range of appetizers to choose from, with the wontons, posttickers and rangoon all highly recommended. The choice of salads, soups, curries, noodle dishes and entrees – with either steamed, brown or sticky rice – may be quite overwhelming at first glance, but the staff is always happy to give recommendations. A spicy and satisfying experience time and time again.

Saddle Mountain Brewing Company
