Its a good restaurant...but when asked the restaurant confirmed that a number of the "vegetarian" options on the menu have fish sauce in them. I have told them they should not advertise these dishes in their Vegetarian set menu, but they said "some people think fish is vegetarian". I told them that this is rubbish, but was ignored. So i...

I could tell my Cambodian student was missing home and struggling with the food so I took her out for supper to cheer her up. The food was overly salted and poorly cooked, I was embarrassed. When we mentioned this to the waiter, he said that is how Thai food should be. Will not be returning.

Having read previous reviews and as we usually love Thai food, we were looking forward to eating here, but was very disappointed. The decor is lovely and for people that aren't used to Thai food or are novices, I can understand them being swept away in the surroundings, but the food is mediocre and service not much better. We are... More

Tried the Art of Siam as the best rated was closed Mondays. Not brilliant. Plates brought out hot then food after another five minutes. Duck not cooked very tender. Think we can find better.

We have been there with 6 people. Starters and main course. We had different curries and noodles. waiting time was appropriate, the restaurant people very friendly and supportive. The menue is a bit overloaded with extra dishes on a second menue and a special christmas menue. Food was nothing very special but above expectations. If you are into Thai food... More

Pad Thai consists Noodles, onions garlic bean sprouts egg tamarind fish sauce and peanuts. This one missed most of this out! No peanuts no beansprouts. Have you eaten unfried tofu. It's like polystyrene. Tasteless. Veg over cooked noodles over cooked price extortionate. Missed a dish. Need I go on. Save yourself the hassle and money go for Ruby much more... More

Went for lunch. We were the only ones present and it was freezing cold so we kept our coats on. And that is out only gripe. The food was not expensive and it was very good albeit not 5 star. The Gung Hom Pah and Phak Tord starters were divine - some of the best we've ever had! The red... More

Tried the green curry chicken and veggie platter. Both were really good. Service could be a bit fast at lunch time, but no complains otherwise

A very nice, relaxed and friendly restaurant. The choice of dishes is extensive, there's likely to be something for everybody. Portions are tasty and of a good size, so you won't go away hungry. Everything for a reasonable price considering the quality you get.
