Went for an early evening meal & had the 2 course menu, Thai soup was nice & Thai green curry, its a cosy restaurant & the staff are nice, wouldn't want to eat in here if it was full as the tables are quite close together.

Been here a few times for lunch while out shopping. Staff are always friendly and the food is good and decent portion for a reasonable price. Worth a visit if you fancy something different.

Attended this restaurant back in May for my boyfriends birthday. As a party of 6, we were well accommodated and given a big, spacious table upstairs. My main reason for reviewing this restaurant now is seeing the amount of negative reviews about staff being rude etc. I have to say that during our meal here I found the staff to... More

I thoroughly recommend this restaurant. We decided to treat ourselves to a banquet for two, which there are 3 varieties of, depending on price. The restaurant is small but was busy the whole evening. Staff were attentive. The starters I sampled included, fish cakes, chicken satay skewers, king prawns and shredded duck. All had their accompanied dips and I couldn't... More

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
