    Read my full blog post review of Ruean Panya (ร้านเรือนปั้นหยา):


    Ruean Panya (ร้านเรือนปั้นหยา) is a Thai seafood restaurant about a 1 hour drive from Bangkok that recently received 1 Michelin Star. It was one of the restaurants I had not ever heard of, so finally, one fine day we drove out to the restaurant to taste their food - specifically their seafood.

    Here are the dishes I ate at Ruean Panya (ร้านเรือนปั้นหยา):

    Shrimp fried with salt (กุ้งทอดเกลือ) - These massive shrimp are a must order, huge and so fresh and firm. They are deep fried with salt.

    Black pomfret (ปลาเต๋าเต้ยทอดกระเทียม) - This was one of the best dishes for me, a massive black pomfret, deep friend to an ultimate crisp, with tons of garlic.

    Crab relish (หลนปูเนื้อ) - Another one of the most famous dishes at Ruean Panya (ร้านเรือนปั้นหยา) is their entire crab in a coconut milk thick relish. It’s a traditional Thai dish, and it’s a bit on the sweet side, but really extraordinarily delicious.

    Crab chili dip (น้ำพริกเนื้อปู) - This simple de-shelled crab dip was fantastic.

    Snail curry (แกงคั่วหอยขม) - This was ok, but not the best version I’ve ever had.

    Long-whiskered catfish (ปลาอีกงราดพริดสูตรโบราณ) - This was a unique dish, very good deep fried catfish, covered in a thick and oily chili sauce.

    Fried pork fish sauce (หมูทอดน้ำปลา) - Finally, my wife ordered the fried pork with fish sauce.

    We ordered a lot of food, and all the Thai food at Ruean Panya (ร้านเรือนปั้นหยา) is served family style. So although it’s very expensive, we could have easily had 3 - 4 more people eating this entire meal to make the costs more manageable.
    Total price - 9,765 THB ($298.74)

    Ruean Panya (ร้านเรือนปั้นหยา) is an amazing restaurant, especially the seafood is what stood out. They are a 1 Michelin Star Thai food restaurant, well deserving. Well worth the drive!
