Dishes arrived with ingredients missing and all meat over cooked. NO spice or flavor within masaman or duck curry. Literally tasted like Luke-warm coconut milk with chili oil. Do not waste your money or ruin your love of Thai food.

Our favourite Thai meal during our Thailand holiday was at Ruan Thai at Phi Phi Village Island Resort. Excellent service, there was even a crab cake on sugar cane amuse-bouche! Treetop forest atmosphere with lovely lighting. Great menu and everything we ordered was delicious.

Visited the restaurant to have a thai gourmet tasting menu, and it was very very good and the food was abundant. Service and environment was excellent. Also very friendly for children.

Took 30 mins to get water. Another 30 for food. They served a 2 year old's apple juice in a cocktail glass, complete with garnish. Then the food came. Some of the blandest food Ive ever eaten, and this is a Thai restaurant. The people...More
