Popular with expats, tourists and
Thais, the food is not dumbed down for Western
palates. For starters, crispy cups filled with diced
prawns and garden herb salad showcases the refreshing
flavours Thai food is famous for, as does yum som-o,
piquant pomelo salad with prawns in a peanut and herb
dressing. Tom yum kung features big, succulent prawns
and tender coconut meat for a nice take on this menu
staple. Soft-shelled crab, fried with garlic and pepper, is
an aromatic treat. A fusion dish of grilled lamb chops in
black pepper sauce tastes good but is a little too fatty.
Roasted red curry of crabmeat with betel leaves is a
generous-sized serving of the prized crustacean flesh
in a delicious, aromatic sauce. For dessert the obvious
choice is sticky rice with mango; the rice has that great
mix of sweet and salty, a perfect match for the ripe
mango and coconut syrup.
A golden teakwood Rama V-era house is the
perfect setting for Ruen Urai's authentic Thai cuisine.
The owner's collection of family heirlooms and antiques
adds to the pleasing ambience.
