The lunch menu has lots of choices at a great price. This is one of my favorite Thai restaurants and certainly the best in the area.. They offer vegetarian items as well as the standard meat and poultry. Nicely prepared and served in lovely surroundings with a good price.

Service is good, friendly and efficient. I had bland no heat whatsoever "drunken noodles" that according to menu was to be a spicy dish. Dining partner ordered "pad tai" found it bland. Not what I know over last forty years as Thai cuisine, not interested to experiment here again.

The restaruant has good fresh Thai food and a very nice outdoor seating area. I like the Basil Chicken with just a little spice. The Thia Tea is great as well.

My husband and I have always loved to go here but twice now I have read in the paper that the owner for Ruen Tong and Walter Cafe (same person) is being fined for stealing tips from the workers and giving the workers room and board in exchange for a paycheck...so we will not be eating here again for a...

Passing through Ukiah, Ca., we found this Thai restaurant via GPS! It was like a shot in the dark for us, and we were rewarded with this jewel of a find! The Ambience was our first impression, like a Buddhist shrine in a small garden just outside the restaurant! The Thai cuisine is just very impressive, the soups were delicious... More

Ruen Tong has to be the worst. I ordered four different dishes to take away. The restaurant is attractive so I expected a high standard... More

My husband and I decided to stop for a late lunch on the way home today to the SF Bay Area. Using TripAdvisor, we selected this restaurant as most reviews were quite good. We agree - this was a gem! The restaurant, on the old highway (now State Street), is located in an old house that is impeccably adorned with... More
