Nearly 2 weeks of brilliant Thai service & food from street to restaurant style and this is the first one that failed - in every aspect. Service awful, long wait for poorly flavoured half pre prepped food with none of the normal Thai style.

First ate here around ten years ago and have been returning often ever since. The surroundings are the same and the food quality is still good. There never seem to be many diners, which is a shame because it's good food at reasonable prices. If...More

Good service, at least some waitresses speaks English. Nice Thai food. I ate Pla Nam Koh -- a deep fried fish with thai herbs, and it was very good. Other Thai servings were as well good. Not too spicy.

I didn't read the reviews before I went to Ruen Mai; I just wandered in, as it's on the main street and the ambience is appealing. On the advice of the nice middle-aged woman trying to help me decide, I ordered a deep fried fish...More
