Celebrated a birthday with a luncheon for 21 ladies. The food and service were terrific. The selection on their special menu was excellent. Can not say enough good things about the food and sevivce. This restaurant is not just for lunch. The dinner menu is also very delicious.

One of my favorite places to dine in Bluffton. The service is exceptional and the food is always delicious. The plating is simply beautiful. Highly recommend the Pad Thai!

Stopped here with family over the holidays. Great table service. I had the green tea but family members had beer and wine. Everyone enjoyed their meals. I chose the fried rice with tofu. Very well cooked tofu, Asian style restaurants always do it well. Some of the dishes are served directly in a half pineapple. Mine had an adorable carrot... More

The dining room is lovely. There are comfortable booths and an attractive bar...however, the food is so bland it didn't even seem like a Thai restaurant. When we asked for more spice, the server brought a caddy that had some sweet & sour goop and some powder that tasted like sweet paprika. I love that spice, but it doesn't usually... More

I've been to Ruin Thai twice now and both were great experiences. The food is high quality and tasty. Also try the soup and Thai tea. The wait staff was prompt and nice. Definitely recommend.

We went to Ruan for dinner on a week night. They were not very crowded and we were seated promptly. We were all aware of an odor as soon as walked in. It was an underlying mold or mildew smell that was a little off putting. The service was prompt and courteous. Two of us got pad thai and one... More

We like Ruan Thai, and generally have dinner each year we vacation in Tybee Island (the beach near Savannah). Now, it isn't the pinnacle of Thai cuisine, but its good, consistently tasty and a solid value. My wife and I split a Massaman curry this time, and it was easily enough for the two of us, though if you split... More

We tried Ruan Thai and found the best Oriental place in the Bluffton Area. We walked in on a Tuesday night about 530 and it was very empty. When we left it was full. We enjoyed their dumpling and Tofu soup appetizers. Then the main courses came and they ascetically were fantastically presented. I enjoyed the Thai Garlic dinner with... More
