Review

Setting

Ruen Thai is a favourite for those wanting to taste court cuisine developed during the reign of King Rama V, a period when Thai food’s famous flavours and presentations were developed. Ruen Thai is located in a wooden pavilion on the edge of a lagoon facing the Andaman Sea.

Food

Award-winning chef Songwut Monthirakanok brings his flair to Ruen Thai's menu. No MSG is used in the recipes, which are presented by their original palace names. Start with tender deep-fried shrimp cakes served with plum sauce or fried white prawns wrapped with egg noodles. Succulent green mango salad with crispy Phang Nga shrimp is prepared and served at the table. The classic spicy Thai soup, tom yum, can be enjoyed with shrimp, sea bass and scallops flavoured with hot basil. Also flambeed at the table is Phuket lobster seasoned with a delicious sweet curry sauce. Chef Songwut recommends grilled black cotton fish wrapped in banana leaves and steamed sea bass in a lime, chilli and garlic sauce. For dessert, there are a number of royally-inspired traditional sweet offerings.
