I always visit Ruan Thai when on the island and the service and food never disappoint! My favourite lunch time dish is their Tom Yum Soup which is full of great flavoured broth, chicken, shrimp, bean sprouts and peanuts. Very, very good.

The food is good but the restaurant is small and so the service varies greatly depending on the number of people present. The last time we went we had to wait over 35 minutes for our main course and won’t go back.

This was our second visit to Ruan Thai. We wanted if the food and service was as good as we remembered. It was. The spring rolls were the best ever. We both wanted chicken fried rice and we're not disappointed. It was a good sized...More
