Had dinner here and it was one of the best curries in my 2 weeks in Thailand. The staff were on the ball, friendly and the prices were great. Nice atmosphere and pretty easy to find with its distinctive roof.

We went here after finding the resturant on tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. We ordered chicken satay, chicken phad thai and spaghetti carbonara.

We eat 3 times in Ruen Thai while we were in Phuket Patong. Their dishes are very tasty. And their warm and kind hospitality is another plus. My favorite is chicken pad thai but you can find many choices both Thai Cusine and european kitchen....More
