I got cashew chicken and it was delicious but the portion size was 1/2 the size of my palm (which is average size). My wife ordered massuam curry with beef and she said it was good but they skimped out on the beef. The price was reasonable but for the portion size or lack there if I would recommend another...

Had dinner in Ruen Thai tonight. Were greeted by a friendly lady, who seeing we were hot gave us a table next to the fan and handed us cooling iced towels. Great start! We ordered a couple of beers, shrimp pad thai, chicken fried rice, chicken in oyster sauce and shrimp with garlic. There were only two of us, but... More

Amazing thai food all in a fun setting. Compared to the food we received the prices were fair. The portions served were big and enough to fill us all.

Absolute gem. One of the best in the area, food was out of this world. Clean and friendly, and they speak English. The hostess was so friendly, lovely lady. Prices were very reasonable. Sucks that we stumble on it on our last day.

Fantastic. I've eaten all over Thailand and this place is unbeatable. Friendly, clean, great atmosphere, . . . and I'm not even to the food yet! Every dish I try is my new favorite!!! This is less than 100 steps off of the main beach road. It's a hidden jewel I'd direct anyone and everyone to. I eat at Ruen... More

Very tasty Thai & International food, first class service. All staff was very friendly and always happy. The restaurant is clean and has many fans to keep all customers comfortable even in the most hot days. I recommend a lemon ice tea as a refreshing drink and Mai Tai drink served in the pineapple. The meals are prepared from the... More

We came here for dinner one night after seeing other good reviews on Trip Advisor. We were greeted by friendly staff and served some delicious Thai food. We arrived just in time for the skies to open up and as the restaurant has two open walls if we had a great view of the down pour, but stayed dry. Dinner... More

We stopped in on our walk back to our hotel, which is right down the street. We were immediately greeted and taken great care of. Our food was delicious - phad Thai, chicken fried rice, and papaya salad. Ning, one of the owners, was very hospitable. She offered to walk with us to the next door massage parlor to make... More
