There is the full menu, a one course express meal for £5.95 or two courses for £7.95. Seating is on two levels but at lunchtime the... More

I have dined at the Ruan Orchid many times and it never fails to please. A large fine dining restaurant the Ruan Orchid is not. This restaurant is though a cosy Restaurant serving really good authentic Thai food. If you want to take advantage of the two course lunch at under eight pounds make sure you book as it seems...

Returned to the ruan Orchid last night for dinner. Probably the fourth or fifth time we have been. It's a great place. Quite small, but despite that they don't squash the tables together. Last night it was very busy and so we sat upstairs. Lovely atmosphere. Mostly couples or groups of friends. Menu is usual Thai but the lamb massaman... More

We ordered chicken satay with sticky rice for our child. The starters were extremely average, with the soup being about the best of the bunch. The... More

I took my sister here for lunch for her birthday and the food was nice enough but my sister ordered duck for a extra £2.95 and she only got 5 pieces. She also ordered the sticky rice and instead of taking how much the boiled rice off the price of the sticky rice but she was charged the full amount.... More

We went here in a last minute dinner change on a Saturday night, they were able to accommodate us a short notice which was good. My husband & I have a favourite Thai restaurant in our home town of Tunbridge Wells (Sucherra) so I was keen to see how this stacked up. The mixed platter was nice, the fishcake was... More
