Great food, ignore the look outside

We would never have gone through the door fo this place had it not been highly reccomended. Have now been back manay times with many people and always had a great meal. Lovely, proper Thai food at a good price. This place would be heaving if it was n the town centre or people knew about it!

Supper for two on a Saturday night; the restaurant was nowhere full but it was convivial enough. Complementary prawn crackers were brought. We started with chicken satay, which was OK but the sauce was thin; and fish cakes. For mains, we chose the stir fried duck and the stir fried beef, which were offered to us by their numerical listing... More

My partner and I are really into Thai Cuisine and was searching for Thai food during our Weymouth stay. We found Ruan Thai online, we walked from our hotel on the seafront (about 15 mins walk, up steps and uphill!) and hoped it would all be worthwhile. We arrived and the pub was in a housing estate and to be... More

Well if you don't get out much u will find this place to your taste. But as a person that has eaten in many restaurants thought th USA and the UK it only rates as a medium. It's a pub doing its best in tourist area a bit off the beaten track. Garden needs work, a local trying to play... More

We visited the Ruan Thai restaurant on a Saturday lunch time recently. We was walking to the Weymouth Seafood Festival and decided to stop on our way for something to eat to beat the crowds in town. We ate in the garden which as very nice as it was sunny. It was an impromptu visit and not something we would... More

I'd sprained my ankle and couldn't go out to a restaurant, so ordered the take away and jolly glad we did! Great ingredients nicely cooked and I'd certainly order again or eat in...regardless of the scaffolding!

Five of us ate here - for my sons birthday. The staff were very helpful and welcoming. The food was delicious, although the menu is quite extensive, making it more difficult to choose! We weren't rushed at all, there was exactly the right amount of time between courses, and the prices are very reasonable.

My mother had seen an advert in a local tourist magazine and we decided to give the Ruan Thai a visit. We were so glad we did. The restaurant is part of building which comprises Old Castle Hotel, bar and restaurant and is on the road out of Weymouth, passing Asda on the way to Portland, just a couple.of minutes... More

Having visited The Old Castle and their Thai Restaurant every month since December both food and hotel here never disappoint! The food is cooked freshly cooked, reasonably priced and is always cooked to perfection. Plus the 3 course lunch special for £9.99 is a bonus! Waiter and Waitresses are always friendly and helpful One of the best restaurants in Weymouth!
