We took advantage of the Early Sitting menu this evening (which is between 5:30 and 6:45 on a Sunday - it's worth knowing, as they don't seem to advertise the specific time anywhere!!) and the food was very tasty. There was a decent array of starters to choose from, and a range of stir fry and curry dishes for mains,... More

Was recommended this restaurant by local taxi driver. The welcome was non existent. In fact I have never felt less welcome. The food was just not nice, my friend and I left most of it. The waitress cleared our plates while we was still eating our starters. The reason being that the main course came 2 seconds later.Worst restaurant experience... More

I've visited the Ruan Orchid several times with friends and family. I've always been able to get a table even on busy evenings, and with last minute and big group bookings. On every occasion, I've been greeted with great, fast service and outstanding quality of food for a reasonable price.

Visited this restaurant on evening of 3rd September with 2 visiting friends from USA On arriving the staff did not seem to be immediately friendly to customers arriving. We gave our orders and the food served was good although we had to ask twice for ordered drinks. At the end of the meal we asked for the bill and it... More

I had a lunch special: starter and main meal with rice for 7.95 which was ok value wise. I asked for coconut rice and was informed would be charged extra. They added 2.95 to my bill although normal rice was included. Not impressed with that at all. Atmosphere and service average... you decide then.

I visited this place for a quick bite to eat having seen the place a few times but never been inside. The restaurant itself is quite small inside with a downstairs with about 10 tables and another floor upstairs which I didn't see. Service initially was a little slow but got better , both myself and friend had the £7.95... More

Average little Thai place, nothing to blow you away but it's cheap and quick (at lunch times). Staff weren't massively warm. My squid starter wasn't tough and chewy buy it was incredibly greasy with the cooking oil swimming around my plate and the side salad - it was bizarrely served with a garlic mayo dip which seemed unusual for a...
