Ruen Thai
On the last night before we left the Dusit Thani Laguna, we realised that we hadn't tried the authentic Thai that this resort restaurant provided. We were blown away by the fresh food, wonderful service and location on the lagoon.
Picture a wonderful romantic meal on the verandah overlooking the lagoon with a fresh, cooling breeze wafting across from the beach.
Life doesn't get much better than this!

The restaurant design is elegant with options to sit out or inside with air conditioning. As in all Thai restaurants, the service was impeccable and embellished by that gentle care that comes so genuinely from the Thai people.
The food was so divine that we went three times although we were not staying at the Dusit. The green papaya salad was prepared with great finesse at the table. To see the ingredients expertly combined into the dream salad which we then ate, was a treat difficult to describe, but you get my drift .....
The balance, flavour and presentation of each following dish just added to our deep respect for Thai cuisine. Interestingly, the Chef was the same chef who had prepared the same superb food 5 years ago!
If you are staying in Phuket and want to eat something wonderful, don't miss Ruen Thai!

Great quality Thai food with great taste. Prices seemed pretty reasonable for a quality hotel restaurant as well, I expected them to be higher.

I ordered the same thing here 3 times (different meats). I forget the Thai name for the dish, but it was basically Green Curry and you could pick prawns, chicken, or beef. Prawns were the best. This dish was 320 THB and a side of rice was 60 THB. Couple that with a large Singha for 220 THB and you are doing well!

The staff here was really nice as well. They recognized us when we returned after the first night and gave us free amuse bouche (did I spell that right?) Like a little bite-sized appetizer.

Great quality food and my favorite restaurant at Dusit Thani.

Beautiful location, beautiful restaurant, overpriced average food.
The night we went my wifes food was slightly to spicy for her, I had a beef massiman curry advertised made with Australian tenderloin beef?. The beef was stringy and tough the potatoes hard, another half hour cooking was needed. Being English we did not complain but we did not go back either.
The service in the restaurant was very good.
