We visited here with friends recently, and it didn't disappoint! The food is amazing. We had the set meal for two x 2. There was so much food! The Pad Thai was delicious, the Weeping Tiger was probably the best I have ever tasted. The atmosphere is eclectic and the service is fairly leisurely, so if you want fast food... More

The service is always extremely polite and good and the food is excellent. The set lunch time menu is fantastic value and fast so great for people who have to get back to work. I've been visiting this restaurant for years and have never had a bad experience.

We tried this place for the first time 3 weeks ago, and have been back weekly since. Great food, staff and reasonable prices. I have never managed to eat a whole meal as I'm full before I get to the end, but I would highly recommend you try the food here - will continue to be a regular!

This is a very nice first floor restaurant with great authentic Thai food and service. There is an excellent choice of food. The meal we had was delicious. The staff are Thai and in authentic costume and are extremely friendly and courteous. It is a busy restaurant with a good atmosphere.

Now I'm not sure why nobody has revewed this place since 2015 but I guess people want to keep it secret. Now I'm no thai food expert, but 4 of us ate there last night and with a 9:30 pm booking the place was packed. Service was very efficient and the menu looked comprehensive. We elected for 2 set meals... More

Never realised there was a Thai restaurant in the high street, so first visit. Very quaint inside with a good atmosphere and was warmly welcomed on arrival. I was surprised how busy the place was as it was early Saturday evening. Went for the set menu Sasriske I think. Mixed starters were delicious, slightly different from the standard experienced elsewhere... More

Located on the High Street in Burnham-on-Crough in Essex, Ruam Thai is a buzzy and popular little Thai restaurant that is loved for its genuinely friendly service and traditional menu. Made up of two separate 30-seater dining rooms, the intimate restaurant is decked out in a palette of neutral colours and natural materials and features ochre-hued walls, rustic beams, wooden floors and pot plants. The laid-back atmosphere attracts local couples and young families, and the classic menu includes favourites such as the Ruam Thai Platter – a selection of chicken satays, fish cakes, prawn toast and duck, spring and prawn rolls; and the stir-fried king prawns with sweet chilli paste and sweet basil.
