One of the best meals I have ever had. I am so glad I came here. We had pork belly, spicy duck salad and fried rice.

Everything was perect and delicious. Lovely old building too!

“ร้านระย้า แพงระยับ!”
Reviewed November 25, 2012 via mobile

Nice ambience, perfect location and great food, but the food is fairly expensive!

It's probably for entertaining overseas guests, not for Thai or local tourist.

“Proper Thai Resturant.”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Raya posts on its web site that it does not pander to western taste. Further the Thais have no concept of Appitizers and main courses.
Upon walking in there is a feel of a Mexican cantina with rustic painted walls and simple tables and chairs.. The menu at first is confusing with two prices for each dish. This is not for starter portions and maincourses. The Thais work on very much a put it down and dive in sharing the dishes on the table. The menu reflects the price for one portion or a second price for two portions if you want the same thing. Local Thai whisky is served by the bottle so expect a bump in the bill. Food is authentic as it gets so prepare for a warm glow in your mouth . Fantastic

“Good Thai food in the middle of town”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Was recommended here by the hotel staff for "local food". The crab curry and vermicelli is good -huge chunks of crab meat in yellow curry sauce, never had it before. Food was recommended by the captain, friendly service. House in an old Chinese house in the middle of town. The place is old and busy, with good atmosphere. Not air-conditioned, but has fans on. I will eat here again!
