I have recently been to this wonderful restaurant into Dusit Thani resort. The place is ideal for a romantic dinner, it's facing the lagoon. While we were there, a person was playing a Thai instrument giving a wonderful atmosphere. Every course was simply perfect and yummy but the squid cooked with garlic and pepper was one of the most delicious... More

We have eated at the Ruen Thai many times over the six or so years we have been coming to the Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket. We recently had a meal for four to celebrate a birthday. The food was from the a La Carte Menu and as always, the food, service and ambience was absolutely superb!!

Overlooking a lagoon they treat you to fresh (and spicy if you want) flavors of Thailand. Service is excellent too. We enjoyed our meal very much. Try the fried grouper with Thai herbs.

I gotta admit we had such super high expectations from this restaurant. Such a letdown really. Thai food so bland, we have had better in Hong Kong! If you want to try Thai food, visit the Thai restaurant in Anantara - much better experience!

We were looking forward to the traditional Thai buffet here for dinner but were very disappointed. The food was far from authentic, tasting bland and not very fresh. At its best, Thai food should taste fresh and zingy, dancing on your tongue. The was no dancing going on here; with the only exception being some very good spicy shrimp paste.... More

This is a very good Thai restaurant in this area. The prices are normal, and the food is delicious. The staff is friendly, there is a live Thai music.

Beautiful food, exquisite views, great wine; and this time as we were there with our 7 month old, one of the very kind hostesses worked her magic and send our baby off to sleep in about 2 minutes in her pram. What more could anyone ask. Lovely food, amazing people.

Being October the weather was perfect to sit out on the deck and enjoy great food. The selection of mini desserts was the perfect end for us. The service was top rate as standard at the dusit from my experience.
