4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Good restraurant, good wine, we really enjoyed the stay.
Nice an friendly staff, serving and explaining the food, phantastic!
Nothing to complain, but needless to say, this is not 100% thaifood you will find somewhere in Thailand in non touristic areas.....I will call it tourist-capable-thaifood :)

“Wonderful location / view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

Ruan Thai is a resort restaurant so expect to pay resort prices. But saying that the setting and the ocean views are worth every penny. The service is as good as you would expect from a resort and the food tasted perfect, the seafood just delicious, very authentic. Word of warning guys, vests, shorts and thongs very much frowned upon, dress smart for once on your holiday ;-)
