If you’re looking for a great thai restaurant in Bangkok, I recommend Ruen Urai at the BTS Sala Deang (8 minutes walk) , 118 Surawongse road. A very quiet and elegant place, in this busy and lively neighbourhood. It’s a thai traditional house, “Jim Thompsom House” style. for booking, the phone is 02 266 826 . map on page 2.
The food is excellent, with many specialities from the Chef, which are noticed on the menu. a chili symbol is also placed on the side if the meal is spicy. you can ask them if you want it less spicy and they will usually take it into account.
to give you some ideas to order, here are the food that we tried with the description and the price :
