Ordering Royal Thai online via EatNow

Eat Now website

Last week I was excited to have dinner sponsored by EatNow, an online takeaway and delivery website started by Matthew Dyer in 2010 and now owned by the Catch Group (the guys behind Catch of the Day, Scoopon, Mumgo, The Grocery Run and Vinomofo). It was timely as burger boy was working and I was on very little sleep – cooking without sleep usually guarantees a pretty bland (at best) meal :)

When I think delivery I always think pizza and since recently discovering Saffron Indian Restaurant delivers to our home, Indian has become a frequent home delivery option. Whilst when I think takeaway I think Chinese or Thai.

So it was no surprises when I entered my postcode into EatNow’s website and selected takeaway Perth - a list of pizza, Indian, Chinese and Thai restaurants came up. I didn’t have a specific craving but I knew I didn’t feel like pizza :) so I decided to order Royal Thai to takeaway.

After reading through the EatNow online food delivery and take-away menu, I added satay chicken, massaman beef and fried rice to my shopping cart. Everything looked so good, I’m glad I only ordered enough for two ;) I could have easily ordered for three or four with the click of the mouse. There were options to pay by Mastercard, Visa, PayPal or cash. I paid by Paypal and received a SMS a few minutes later to confirm my order had been received.

I have driven past Royal Thai many times as it is opposite my fav Japanese restaurant, Ha-Lu but I’ve never really noticed this hidden gem or thought to try it until last week.

Our satay chicken entree ($10)…

Satay Chicken

The chicken breast was tender and the satay sauce was sweet and tangy rather than savoury. I could still clearly taste the satay flavour and loved that Royal Thai gave this traditional satay chicken dish a bit of a twist which worked.

The kao pad gai aka fried rice ($14) had plenty of meat, fresh veggies and a slightly sweet flavour.

Like the fried rice, Royal Thai’s serving of the beef and potatoes in their massaman beef  ($18) was generous. The curry was beautifully thick and sweet but I would have liked the beef and potato to be cooked a bit longer to allow the curry to soak through and for the beef and potatoes to fall apart on first bite.

Take-away from Royal Thai

I really enjoyed my dinner from Royal Thai, ordering was easy and service was friendly. burger boy was very happy to come home to leftovers and was also impressed with the quality. A big thank you to EatNow for introducing me to Royal Thai, our new local for Thai.

foodie cravings

I’m a foodie who enjoys trying new food anywhere / any place (restaurants, cafes, bars, market stalls, fast food joints…anywhere just name it!) both in Perth, Western Australia and on my travels. I’m not your ordinary foodie, I’m often described as ‘fussy’ but I really really do love my food - I guess just not everything that’s put on my plate. Though, my other half, ‘burger boy’, eats most foods so I’ll be blogging about what he eats too…and as the name implies, burgers will be a regular foodie blog for all you burger lovers outthere. I love showcasing my yummy food finds with pics so I thought why not share my passion for food with other foodies with my blog, foodie cravings. Follow my food journey as I discover new keepers and rave about my all-time favourites.

    I noticed you have an Eat Now ad – we’ve been using them quite a lot lately. The app makes ordering so easy. Plus your food looks delicious…
