| I visited this lounge twice, once in the evening and once in the early morning. The rush of flights leaving in the evening meant that the lounge was very crowded. However, we did find seats in a corner together. The lounge decor is very green and bright. There are a variety of seating options - but no napping chairs. There are an abundance of power outlets, and the seats were laid out in such a way that you can have some food relatively easily. The food in this lounge is a highlight. There are two buffets - a halal section and the main section. The main section had a large salad bar, a variety of sweet and savoury pastries, and hot food on offer, as well as pad krapao - stir fried chicken with basil made to order. The halal section had mostly Indian food - butter chicken and samosas. There are two bars, and you could get cocktails from either of them. I used the shower facilities here, and the showers are relatively simple, a rain shower suite, toilet, seat and sink. I did however, have to call the lounge in advance to ask about the shower facilities since the website showed that they were still not open due to social distancing, but the receptionist told me that it was just opened a week before my flight. In the morning the food on offer was also pretty good. This lounge is a good one, even though I could've used the EVA Air lounge which was closer to my gate on my second visit - I chose the long walk to this lounge because it was better. Thai used to be quite poor in terms of lounges, but their new offerings put them on par with EVA Air and ahead of Lufthansa and United. If the royal orchid lounge is too crowded, the royal silk lounge next door, with slightly less brash, colourful decor still has the same food offerings and is usually a lot less crowded, and you are allowed to walk between the two lounges in case you would like a cocktail from the prestige lounge's bar.
