Rather difficult to find place. My other half thai colleague brought us here. Reservations is a must. Food was a delight, so was the quaint environment. It was like dining in a Thai person's home. Food is much spicier than thai food you eat at other thai eateries but food was very good. A must order dish is the thai... More

Ruen Malllika is a quaint little romantic restaurant in the middle of Sukhumvit. The food is elegant and delicious. The setting is ideal, service is good and you will be there a while, it is laid back so you can enjoy the setting. If it is a cool night you should sit outside near the water. It is moderately expensive... More

Not easy too find, don't expect hype there, just the most classic thai food but very well executed. I recommand the tom yam koong with giant shrimp. Very good service, decoration from the past.

Overall atmosphere is cozy with a nice spicy foods. Some of it i.e. Popular Green Curry and all sort of cooked Prawns is absolutely jaw-dropping. Price is reasonable and surely will come again.

I have eaten here many times over the years. The menu doesn't change, nor does it need to with a beautiful selection of designer Thai dishes that are found in no other Bangkok restaurants. The menu itself is a work of art! The restaurant is on a small soi about 2km from the main Sukhumvhit Road and you'll need to... More

Visited w business friends. The selection of food is very attractive and I heard that this is a top Thai restaurant. This is true, I really enjoyed, even though the green curry really hit me!

We are likely to visit this restaurant to enjoy typical Thai food under traditional atmosphere. Taste is good. If you don't like so spicy food, you can order less spicy food. Tourists who we invited were very glad.

Service is friendly and helpful considering we were a big group. Not many other tables, quiet for a Saturday night. Was looking forward to good traditional Thai dishes -food was not bad but nothing very outstanding - and pricy for Bangkok - considering we didn't have dessert or alcohol!

Staying in Sukhumvit

Neighbourhood Profile
With a mix of shopping malls, hip bars and food stalls lining both sides of Thailand’s longest road, you’ll rarely encounter a dull moment along Sukhumvit. While the main road itself doesn't offer a lot in terms of entertainment, it's the adjoining 'sois' (alleys) where the magic happens. Popular spots are soi 11 for a lively night out, soi 4 for naughty nightlife and soi 21 for world-class shopping at Terminal 21. It's hard to cover everything this area has to offer in on day, so be sure to take your time. Sukhumvit is heavily congested with traffic during day and night, so getting from A to B is most convenient using the BTS Skytrain right above it.
