We like this place for lunch but sometimes they have different cooks that overcook the meats. On our last 3 visits, the meat was overcooked and too tough to eat. That happened with beef and chicken. Since my wife loves Thai food, we will be back but I will probably get only veggie meals.

We dined here on a week night. Not too crowded. I ordered the shrimp with cashews. The plate was nicely presented. However, when cashews are a main listing on the menu there should be many whole cashews, not a few broken pieces. Also, when you serve raw onion in the dish it should be mild, not a strong harsh cooking... More

Ruan Thai Hut, well the one we always frequent on Main Street right outside the front gate of Hilton Head Plantation just provides the best, consistent Thai food you can find. So friendly, warm and gracious always. We love their Curry dishes with shrimp, chicken or beef and their Pad Thai reminds us of eating along the Chao Praya River... More

My sister and I were searching for a Thai restaurant for dinner and I'm so glad we found Ruan Thai! We had the spring roll appetizer and we both had chicken pad Thai. Even though I'm just here for vacation, this is the best pad Thai I've had in a long time! The restaurant had a nice atmosphere, service was... More

Came to restaurant at 2:30. Was immediately told that they close at 3:00 and told they could serve us outside if we wish to eat. Really???? Heat index of 109 outside. After expressing dismay to this arrangement we were able to sit inside but told to eat fast because they close at 3 and the chef needs to rest before... More

This is a sister restaurant to Ruan Thai located mid Island. The food is very good, good presentation. They only have beer and wine - no liquor at this location. I enjoy the Mango Paradise, the cashew nut chicken for lunch - you get a spring roll or Tom Yum soup with lunch. For dinner, the 3 flavors flounder is... More

For this type food a $25 entree is pretty steep. Small place. Service can be spotty. Food is good though if you don't mind paying a little more.

Nice little Thai restaurant. Seating is limited. We arrived around 5 pm on a weekday and noticed half the the tables by the window (which are a bit nicer seating location) were reserved. We had no trouble getting a seat but the restaurant filled up fairly quickly after we got there. I had Pad Thai and my husband had Shrimp... More
