I thought i have been to best restaurants until i've seen here. I really liked thai food alot here. It is a reasonable street restaurant with lots of choices. Portions are good, drinks are good, taste and quality are perfect. The only thing bad is the slow service. For the time being it is one of my favorite street restaurant.

The food was amazing. The flavours of the sauces were so delicious. We've been in Thailand for 3 weeks now and it is by far the best food we've had so far.

I got cashew chicken and it was delicious but the portion size was 1/2 the size of my palm (which is average size). My wife ordered massuam curry with beef and she said it was good but they skimped out on the beef. The price was reasonable but for the portion size or lack there if I would recommend another...

Had dinner in Ruen Thai tonight. Were greeted by a friendly lady, who seeing we were hot gave us a table next to the fan and handed us cooling iced towels. Great start! We ordered a couple of beers, shrimp pad thai, chicken fried rice, chicken in oyster sauce and shrimp with garlic. There were only two of us, but... More

Amazing thai food all in a fun setting. Compared to the food we received the prices were fair. The portions served were big and enough to fill us all.
