Description: Located on the High Street in Burnham-on-Crough in Essex, Ruam Thai is a buzzy and popular little Thai restaurant that is loved for its genuinely friendly service and traditional menu. Made up of two separate 30-seater dining rooms, the intimate restaurant is decked out in a palette of neutral colours and natural materials and features ochre-hued walls, rustic beams, wooden floors and pot plants. The laid-back atmosphere attracts local couples and young families, and the classic menu includes favourites such as the Ruam Thai Platter – a selection of chicken satays, fish cakes, prawn toast and duck, spring and prawn rolls; and the stir-fried king prawns with sweet chilli paste and sweet basil.

“Highly recommended”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

I like Thai food but not when it's very spicy, and my husband is a bit of a Thai virgin, so we asked for mild dishes and/or for them to be made with little or no chilli. We had a rice, noodle, vegetarian and chicken main courses which was plenty for the 2 of us. It was a blustery Tuesday evening and very quiet so we had the waitress's undivided attention and we have no complaints about the service or quality of the food. It was a very tasty meal and not too spicy for us. We will certainly be back when we are next in the town and try their well-priced lunch menu.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

My husband and I had a meal whilst visiting the local marina on our boat! Food was excellent with a good selection for vegetarians. All fresh and well cooked with green curry made using quorn, a real treat for veggies. Wine and food was all reasonably priced with excellent, efficient and warm service from the 2 female staff. Do not let the rather dull entrance put you off this was an excellent experience and all for less than £60 for two including wine. Portion sizes were excellent and we left very happy!

“Nice family run Thai restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

We have eaten here several times as a couple and as a family. The food is basic, Thai formula food but well done, fresh and tasty. Service is good and reasonable value. My only criticism would be that I wish that they took more care over preparing fresh seafood dishes - the mixed seafood I had recently was frozen I think.
