Ruen Urai Thai Fine Dining Restaurant @ Bangkok, Thailand

Bangkok Thailand

Ruen Urai is a Thai fine dining restaurant that’s hidden amidst the concrete jungle of Bangkok.  

The traditional wooden Thai house with a splendid pool surrounded by lush greens provides an opulent fine dining experience without being extravagant.


The interior is earth-hued that exudes a “back to nature” aura with a blend contemporary furnishing.

Some tables are close to the pool so you get a lovely view.

For starters, we had pomelo salad with prawns (229 Baht).   I was expecting lots of green leafy vegetables adorned with pomelo pieces, but instead it was chunky pomelos that made up the main bulk of the dish.   The  dish was elegant with the pomelo’s subtle fragrance. With the pomelo’s mild sweetness, spices such as chili flakes, fish sauce and ground peanuts merged with the dish in peace without being too contrasting in flavor

The seafood tom yum soup (250 Baht) wasn’t overwhelmingly sour or spicy. It had an unusual smoky taste to it which I liked, though it was too small a bowl for the two of us!

The “Saengwaah Kratong Tong” (250 Baht) or crispy cup filled with prawns and herbs was presented exquisitely with orchid petals that ornate the dish.

The sauteed chicken with cashew nut (220 Baht) was succulent and coated with a thin layer of caramelized sugar, making it the perfect dish to go with rice.

I haven’t had any Thai fine dining experience prior to this so Ruen Urai was a first, and an amazing one too with the charming atmosphere and sophisticated dishes.

    Honestly the place looks very beautiful. Looking at the photos reminds me of Bora Ombak in Ampang. And judging from the first photo, it looks really like in a middle of a concrete jungle. 🙂
