I am so disappointed! I've been coming to Ruen Pair for years, ever since I came here on a 'six taste' tour- and the food has been amazing-the pork jerky and sticky rice with their spicy citrus sauce and green papaya salad were favorites. I brought so many people here over the years, and it was delicious every time--until tonight. The pork was cut in large strips instead of the smaller crispy pieces I used to get, and the salad was bland with the wrong proprtion of shrimp and peanuts. I used to slurp up the dressing it came with it was delicious enough to eat by itself-but tonight we left half our food on the dish. I don't know if the place has been sold, or they have changed cooks, or just decided now they have a room full of non Thai=less discriminating patrons they can pay less attention to quality, but tonight it was just another mediocre Thai restaurant, the kind you certainly don't have to drive to Thai town to find. Honestly, I'm so sad about this place, I could cry.

Popular place at night. The Papaya salad is very good, everything else is good, but not amazing.

Are u serious? ! I don't know where to begin... the curry chicken was watered-down, not to mention old (you can tell when the curry doesn't "pool" together)... the tum yum soup tasted like lemon juice, and the beef salad was not seasoned well. The pad Thai was actually pretty decent. However to me, the noodles were too soggy. Just my preference, but I like the noodles with more of a bite ("aldente", as the Italians would say). Oh, and if you like 'Pho' (beef noodle soup), dont get it here, find a decent Vietnamese restaurant. Highly disappointed if this is what "Thai Town" of Los Angeles has to offer. I feel awful for subjecting my wife's family to this food. On the plus side, the staff was friendly and the water was downright excellent...

Great Authentic Thai food that at an affordable price. The soups, noodles, salads and meat dishes are all worth trying. I go at least twice per month. Try the Papaya Salad, Morning glory, Yen Ta Fo. BBQ Pork They serve your food so fast its like you called it in ahead of time! They do NOT take Credit Cards so bring cash and bring your appetite The portions are pretty large and they make it semi spicy. Overall great food! You and a friend can eat very well for under 25. If you love to eat 35.00 ENJOY!

Friendly and attentive staff . As a Thai i can say the food is very authentic . I love the Ruen Pair noodle. Try out some desserts like Thai tea pudding or playoff.

I REALLY wanted to love this place... I drove down from the Bay Area and showed up at the restaurant at 1:45 AM to place a take out order. I believe the lady who assisted me was the owner. She was very accommodating. After placing my order, she told me that my order will be ready in about 10 minutes so I told her I was going to wait in my car. After waiting in my car for a little while, I decided to head back into the restaurant to check on the status of my order, but the owner was already walking out towards my car with my order. Talk about great service! That's one of the major reason why I wanted to like their food so badly. I hate giving a semi-average review for a place that goes out of their way to take care of their customers. I ordered the crab papaya salad medium spicy. The spice level was perfect; however, the flavor was a little off. It was bland, yet sweet at the same time. Crab papaya salad is one of those dishes that have a lot of different flavors where you can actually taste the lime juice, fish sauce, and shrimp paste, but none of those flavors seemed present in the dish. Maybe it was just an off night because I showed up so late. The beef salad (yum nuer) was dry, but had more flavor than the papaya salad for sure. Still was not as flavorful as I was expecting since this is one of those dishes that usually help me determine whether a Thai restaurant is authentic or not. The saigrok Esan (Esan sausage) was standard level. In all honesty, I believe that this is the same packaged sausage that is sold throughout most Thai markets so I can't really judge the flavor based on something that is not actually made in house, unless I am wrong.

Great Thai food -- the BBQ pork was delicious and a large portion for a reasonable price.
