Ruan Thai

Ruan Thai, 11407 Amherst Avenue, Wheaton, MD, 301-942-0075, not so far from Rt.29 and University Blvd. (Metro Trip Planner – opens in new window) [Washingtonian | City Paper | openlist | Citysearch | Gayot]
My Thai restaurant of choice, after Duangrat’s. Not just the usual stuff. Fresh ingredients, and truly spicy. When it comes to ordering, you can’t go wrong. This place is exactly what a Thai restaurant should aspire to be.

  1. Skepticism

    Are there really people eating at Applebee’s because they’re “afraid of being thought to be snobs”? I may be a food snob, but I still love my Del Taco “Del Meat” Burrito, am not…

    I just tried Thai Ruan last night (after reading the WaPo story on ‘ethnic Wheaton’)– and I was totally pleased. I especially loved the fried watercress and the squid with basil and red chili. Everything was fresh and delicious.
    A note though to the spicy averse: Their spicy dishes are actually fairly hot (a good thing in my book, but one of my dining companions was a little overwhelmed).

    You should really try this new restaurant calle Nava Thai in Wheaton. It’s a small restaurant next to a chinese grocery store. I would say the food is a bit traditional.
