Lovely atmosphere and food

I was trying to think of an unusual place to eat in Chester this weekend and then it hit me- Ruan Orchid! The food is seriously good and the atmosphere is pleasant and relaxed. I would definitely recommend! :)

I visited this restaurant with a group of special friends.

I met up with my girl friends on Saturday 16th May for a relaxing evening and girly chat. The meal was lovely, though the serving staff did make a mistake with our orders.

This is not a one off visit review I have visited this fantastic little Thai restaurant on numerous occasions and it never fails to disappoint. Gorgeous food, fresh, tasty and lovely friendly service. I try to have different things when I visit but am quite often drawn back to my favourite dish of yellow chicken curry. Can't wait to come...

The welcome was warm and the food was terrific. We had one of the set menus. The quantity of food could never be complained about. The quality of the food matched the welcome and the staff were very friendly
