This is the second time I have visited this restaurant, and just like the first time was really nice. We at at lunch time and chose from the set menu (£6.95) for two courses. We ate thai soup and chicken satay, and for mains thai chicken fried rice and a sea bass sweet and sour dish which was delicious. The sea bass did have a supplement of £2.50, well worth it. Its clean and staff are efficient and friendly and no compromise because its lunch time. Linen table cloths and traditional thai decorated vegetables and good service. I highly recommend and cant wait to visit again.

We have been so many times over the last twenty years to this wonderful little restaurant. Great location, lovely clean interior, fabulous food and very good value at lunchtime. the only negative is the surly male (owner) who can, on occasion be, at best surly and at wrst, downright rude. However, the food redresses the balance. it is fresh, beautifully presented and, no matter what I have had, delicious. The seabass 'sweet sour' is stunning (minus the pineapple - my taste). Chester is a very hard place to do business..from experience, but The Ruan is consistently good.

Lunch set menu is extensive and delicious as always. I dream of this food! Will always have lunch here when i visit Chester, as it is also great value and plentiful. Service possibly a little on the slow side, but the food is worth the wait.

Cosy Thai restaurant with a good sized menu and food is great every time. Service is attentive without being over-bearing

I was pleasantly surprised the cuisine was so authentic, food was tasty. We ordered green curry - spicy hot, and it was! Lime coriander sea bass was v v v good! The price was reasonable too, and the selection of wines were good. Will recommend this place.
