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. I will visit and eat here at the next visit to Phuket. Thank you Ruen Thai.

During our 3 week stay in Patong, we had most of our brunches and dinners in Ruen Thai. The choice in authentic Thai food and the mix of European food is so big that we hardly ever had something more then once, only sometimes we took something again because it was just delicious. The main-street restaurants don`t serve this tasty food at these small prices. The owner, the lovely Thai "boss-lady" Ning became a good friend due to her friendly hospitality. The staff are a hardworking and friendly bunch. Nothing was to much for the waiting or kitchen staff and everything was always done with a smile. Very recommendable for tasty food, nice cocktails, chilled drinks and shakes. A massive " Thank You " to our friends, the graceful Ning, to Dave, Fon, Cho and everyone else who`s names where a little to hard for us. "We will be back".

Ruen Thai offers good and traditional thai food in nice and peaceful athmosphere. Did eat couple of times during the stay at Pattaya and each visit was satisfactory. Recommend to visit if you are looking for traditional thai food.

We visited this restaurant looking for some more authentic Thai cuisine, toned down for normal consumption (yes, I can't quite manage full Thai spice!).

We were firstly impressed by the sincere welcome we received from "Ning Sunshine" the wife and co-owner of the premises. This is a lovely lady who is genuinely concerned for her customers.

We initially ordered 2 glasses of white wine, the waiter apologised and said they had run out of white. The owner overheard the conversation, jumped on his motor bike and within 5 minutes our wine was on the table. Nothing is too much trouble for this wonderful couple.

I was by then more than confident the meals would be great and we were not disappointed. Lovely Thai food, beautifully presented. The menu also has an extensive range of European dishes (as you would expect rom a Hungarian owner!).

The restaurant itself is tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean with cheerful efficient staff.

Definately go out of your way and find this venue - you will love it!

We decided to venture off the main street and found this brillant little restaurant. Spotted the "Trip Advisor" sign so decided to give it a go. Amazing Thai food at great prices. We throughly enjoyed our meal and decided to go back for a second visit. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the lovely Thai owner was so welcoming - a great hostess. Would highly recommend for a lovely meal.
We found some of the beach front restaurants more pricey and geared towards getting as many tourists in as possible, and the food not always great. This place, however, was a refreshing change and just a short walk off the beach front. Worth a visit for lunch or dinner.
