Very poor sunday lunch. A pub cannot convey the atmosphere of a restaurant.Served by the young barman who seemed to be nursing a hang-over,no sign of the cook or waiter.This pub has come in various guises but has never managed to get rid of "the local" If I were the Ruan Thai owner I would open their own restaurant as...

Originally took my partner here for his birthday as had heard really good reviews and it was absolutely lovely. The female waitress there is always smiling, really helpful and polite. Although there's a few comments about the décor on here, it doesn't effect the great service and food that you get. We have since been back for a couple of... More

We love Thai food so couldn't wait to try the Ruan Thai on a stay in Weymouth, as it had been so highly recommended on TA. We were prepared for the surprising nature of the area and the outside of the restaurant from previous reviews, but it didn't really improve inside! Very tired decor, most light bulbs missing etc. We... More

We paid a visit on spec without a booking, the local area was not what was expected and we parked in a crowded side road. The building looks a bit like a castle with turrets very odd. Inside the furniture was not what was expected and quite utilitarian. However what counts is the food, we were given a warm welcome... More

When we arrived we thought we had been dropped off by the taxi at the wrong place! However, when we were seated and read the menu things started looking up. The food is simply brilliant. Thai green curry was a delight, along with the sweet & sour chicken - lovely fresh chicken in a tempura batter served in half a... More

Unexpectedly brilliant food. Its such an unassuming location but the quality of the food and the portion size was just right. The only comments i would have is that the Kronemberg wasnt brilliant and the pinot wine was not great but thats a drinks issue not a restaurant issue and as such all i would say is ask to try...
