Monday nights in the high desert can bring a dilemma. For some reason many restaurants up here choose to close that night. I gather this is because most folks don’t eat out that night. Well, we do and we after some back and forth discussion with the other couple we ended up at Royal Siam in Joshua Tree.
Located in a strip mall on the highway it is surprisingly understated and can be easily ignored or forgotten. In fact, it was a very pleasant dining experience with fairly authentic and very tasty Thai food. Reading the menu is an adventure. I’m not sure who translated for the menu writer but it had quite a few misplaced words, for instance instead of chicken breast they offered “chicken breath”. Don’t be discouraged, tho, the food was well worth the deciphering.
