Enter Ruan Siam and instantly you feel at home. Thai artefacts and twinkling lights lend this restaurant a comfortable intimacy. Staff greet you as though you are a special guest in their home - which in fact is the case, as 'ruan' means house.

Tempting as all the starters sounded, gai hor bai toey (delicately marinated chicken parcelled in pandan leaves) came recommended; the first forkful signalled a special chef at work. Chef Jo's subtle skill was also showcased in the ped Ruan Thai. The green curry sauce tickled the senses without overpowering the melt-inthe- mouth chargrilled duck. The Thai aubergines, like other speciality ingredients used, are flown in from Bangkok. Fellow diners were clearly impressed by the choo chi gung, astutely suggested by our waitress. The jumbo king prawns were gigantic, fried to perfection with a spicy but exquisitely balanced sauce - again it was a lesson in harmony. Ruan Siam's other lesson was that wines made from indigenous Thai grapes can hold their own against the rest of the world's vineyards. The light white was perfect with shellfish and the dessert wine complemented the sweet sticky rice nicely. Words alone cannot describe the deliciousness this restaurant exhibits - you'll just have to experience it for yourself
