Ruen Thai Restaurant
Probably the best place for Thai food in the city, this recently opened restaurant has already established itself as a firm favourite among the people of Cork. An interesting combination of pine furnishings and eastern ornaments contributes to the warm, relaxed ambience. Courteous staff serve authentic Thai cuisine with a slight emphasis on seafood. Fried black tiger prawns with red wine sauce, red snapper and creamy curry, and squid fried with chilli and basil are among the tasty dishes on offer. Stir-fried pork or chicken dishes are present for the satisfaction of insistent carnivores.
I really rate the food here. I have lived and worked in SE Asia and am so into Thai food that I took cookery classes there. I would cook Thai at home up to 3 times a week.
The Thai food here is as good as any youll get in Munster, probably all of Ireland. The restaurant is large and open planned; yet at the same time there is a relaxed subdued atmosphere. The staff are great, if a little shy.
It is a little pricier than other Thai restaurants in Cork (15-20%), but then I dont eat out too often, so when I do I like to go where the food is great.
They are very child friendly (like all Thais), so its a great place to go for lunch.
Absolutely GORGEOUS food, the staff are really helpful if a little shy at times, it's not the cheapest night out, but it's good enough value I think - not as great value as other thai restaurants, but I think that's more to do with their location and possibly high rent. Note also that there is a service charge included for larger groups (as far as I remember)
If you're looking for a good night out, REALLY good food without having to wait for ages, and a nice relaxed chilled out atmosphere then you have to try the Ruen Thai - yuuuuuummy!!!!!
