Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Reviewed 27 March 2023

Went here twice whilst visiting family in Sydney. Both times were excellent. Food was good and well presented. Plenty of choice on the menu. Place was well laid out and staff were friendly. Service was sometimes a bit slow, but that didnt matter when the...food was so good. The only negative was no parking outside or nearby. Would certainly recommend and go again when next visiting family.More

We have been eating at Ruck Thai for many years and have enjoyed every experience there. The food is fresh and delicious, the service is great and it's very reasonably priced. A friend who has spent a lot of time in Thailand said their Som...Tum was every bit as good as she ate in Thailand. We've compared their Betel Nut Leaf starters, Salt & Pepper Calamari, Larb Gai, Lamb Massamum, Moo Yang and stir-fried veggies with other restaurants and Ruck Thai's versions are always better.More

Just terrible. This was the absolute worst Pad Thai I have ever attempted to eat. The noodles were so dry I needed water to help swallow, I'm not kidding. Basically nothing but dry noodles...must have run out of meat, egg or spring onion? or just...stingy. Balmain has heaps of Thai places. Try anywhere else but here.More

Hands down, this is absolutely the worst Thai I have ever had. This is the first and last time we will be ordering from them. The curries (panang and massaman) were watery and tasteless- it tasted as though it was the same sauce but that...the massaman had cloves in it, and there were hardly any veges or meat . We only ordered from them because our local was closed. So disappointed and we will never order from them again.More

Although we don’t live in Sydney, we have been coming to this amazing restaurant for over 5 years. The food is incredible, the staff are wonderful & we always leave feeling just a little bit happier. If you love Thai food, this is some of...the best you will ever eat. Try the beetle leaves with prawns...a taste sensation! The crying tiger with sticky rice is also a favourite. Nok & her team are generous & attentive & always ensure we are well looked after.More

We dropped into the Ruck on our first night in Sydney because it was close to our Airbnb. On our last night in Sydney, 7 days later, we passed up restaurants in other parts of the city so we could return to the Ruck and...we are glad that we did. Great food at a most reasonable price. Gracious staff. Pleasant atmosphere and decor.More

We just visited Ruck Thai for the first time after stumbling upon it. The food was absolutely delicious. Some of the best Thai I’ve had in Sydney.

I walked in solo to kill some time before an appointment nearby and I was delighted to receive such flavoursome food! Some of the best Thai I have had in Sydney! I ordered the scallop entre and lamb cutlets with the panang curry, both divine!

We live nearby and love Thai food but much of it in Sydney is formulaic. Ruck Thai is the closest you can get to authentic Bangkok food in the Inner West.

Ruck Thai is definitely one of best kept secret Thai restaurants in Rozelle. Cozy with relaxed ambience. Flavoursome food presented in creative ways and delightfully spiced. Our pick among the dishes that we ordered was the Siam ribs, a goodness that hit the spot, highly...recommended dish.More

We eat here irregularly but when in Sydney from interstate it is a must. Tonight was no exception, prawns in betel leaves and curry puffs for entree were excellent. Crying Tiger for a main (charred beer fillet with sticky rice) was tender and delicious. Consistency...in restaurants is everything and this eatery is consistently very good. Service is friendly and efficient.More

Ruck Thai is an innovative small restaurant that does the usual range of Thai but with a touch of the exotic with blackboard specials. We have become addicted to king prawns wrapped in betel leaves - simple but lovely fresh flavours. The staff are very...friendly and do a roaring takeaway trade but we enjoy the ambiance of sitting down and enjoying our meal straight out of the wok.More
