It was my friends birthday and we were staying at Angsana villas and the restaurant looked like a good place to celebrate. The service was such a let down. I asked them for some dessert they could bring out with candles to celebrate her birthday. After some reluctance they asked me what I would like from the menu and then... More

We spent two evenings at Ruen Thai at the Dusit Thani, as we loved it the first time and enjoyed it even more the second. Firstly, the food. Over the two nights, we had five mains. The top of the bunch was the 'Five Spiced Marinated Chicken.' This was a summer special, if it is still on the menu, then... More

We enjoin seating outside on terrace lovely view on Laguna during rain, love it. Our meal was good, but not so impressive, except mix of tai deserts, we loved them all.

I could have eaten here every night but the other restaurants are very good too, so we tried them all. Had to dine here twice though as there was so much choice on the menu. The do a dish where they flame the whole lobster at your table - well worth a try if only for the display!

The setting is luxurious and the presentation well thought through. The food also is of high quality, yet a quite reasonable price. I enjoyed this restaurant with my family 4 out of the 6 days we spent at the hotel.

For years we have loved and come to this place. Always refined and exceptionally good Thai food in a very refined atmosphere and excellent service. However, in June last year, while again staying at the DUSIT we were really disappointed not only by the poor quality of a couple of dishes but mostly by the reaction to our disappointment. Although... More

went for dinner, great food, a cut above the rest. The manager is fairly disrespectful, rest of the staff are great. At a guess I'd say when the food is great and people don't interact with the manager, thinks are great and the hotel doesn't look to closely. perhaps the hotel should provide more oversight and accountability rather than leave...

We had dinner there once and the food was very good, but unfortunately not the local taste but adjusted to western tourists. The curries were not spicy at all, the satay was great though. Considering the amount of money spent, you get cheaper and more authentic food in other places.
