We reserved a table for 6 and it was ready when we went. Staff greeted with a welcome and gave the nice food options, recommending appetizers to our taste and confirming what we like would be good.

We are vacationing on Hilton Head Island when we decided to go to Ruan Thai for my birthday dinner. The food was terrific, with a very large selection of delicious Thai dishes. Their were six in our party, three couples, and each couple wanted separate checks. When the checks arrived,much to our dismay, we were all charged a tip of 18% added to the checks. There also was a separate tip line on the receipt copy that could easily have been added without realizing that they had already included the tip in the bill.When we complained, we were told that this was the restaurants policy and nothing could be done about it. Beyond this the service was very slow that evening. While the food was fantastic, I doubt I will return to this restaurant.

Visited Ruan Thai again after a year, and the experience was still excellent. Went on a Saturday night - made reservations, and glad we did. The restaurant isn't all that large, and it was packed. Good service and great food. My wife had sweet and sour shrimp ("Delicious") and I had shrimp pad thai. Both were delicious. Very glad this little gem is available on Hilton Head!

It's our favorite, "must go to" place, whenever we visit. Great food, service and atmosphere. Decent price/value for a full sit down restaurant.
