Must go if in the area

It‘s soo good for such a low price! The staff are hard-working and they offer such a variety of food and mock fish/meat, it was hard to choose what to eat. I came here twice during my stay in Bangkok because I loved the fried duck, it was so crispy and meaty. Seems like this place is popular among foreigners and locals, it was always full.

Its a nice restaurant

But so many 5 star reviews don‘t set realistic expectations. The staff is really nice, but we had much tastier food for even cheaper prices.

Pros: Helpful staff

Disappointing Experience at Ruyi Vegetarian: Mixed Review Despite High Expectations

Food: 2/5
Service: 2/5
Atmosphere: 2/5
Value for Money: 3/5
Location: 2/5
Extras: 1/5

Given the numerous positive reviews, our expectations were elevated due to the abundance of 5-star ratings. However, it seems we may have had an unfortunate experience with our menu choices, or the regular chef might have been absent during our visit. From our perspective, we cannot recommend this restaurant.

The surroundings of the restaurant gave us the impression of being relatively unkempt.

The "Chinese Iced Tea" had a strong chlorine smell and otherwise lacked any discernible taste.

For starters, we ordered seaweed and vegetarian spring rolls. The seaweed was still frozen and emitted a strong fishy smell, while the spring rolls were doughy and tasteless.

As a main course, we opted for Pad Thai. During our travels in Thailand, we had enjoyed better Pad Thai at other locations.

The service staff did not convey a motivated impression, actively avoiding eye contact.

IMPORTANT: Our aim is by no means to harm restaurants through our reviews. Our primary concern is to share honest opinions to enable a realistic assessment and prevent false expectations for potential guests. This transparency promotes an objective evaluation while simultaneously supporting outstanding performance in the hospitality industry.

Local vibe, excellent food!

Tucked down a street close to Hua Lamphong MRT. Popular with locals when I went, only a few tables and almost full at 6pm.

I had the Deep Fried Spring Rolls (70 THB) and the Tom Yum Soup (80 THB). Both absolutely incredible! The mock meats are something else. The spring rolls are filled with mock meats too making them even better than your usual veggie ones. So cheap too, I’d go back again and again!

Cash only.

It's everything very tasty, the people here are kind. I came here in the dinner and I couldn't resist and I came back for lunch. You should try the fried duck. Unbelievable. Price is good and there is a homemade tea for free.

Delicious Thai food, best Tom Yum

Ruyi is our go-to option for Thai food, simple and welcoming restaurant, or for take-away, Ruyi never fails to be delicious. The Tom Yum Hed is aroi maak maak, excellent spice. One of (if not THE) best Tom Yum vegan in Thailand. I also would recommend the fried chicken, morning glory, wontos, and fried rice.

Good food for low prices

It’s a bit tucked away in a locals area which might feel a little intimidating as a tourist but the staff were very welcoming and the food was great. Some of the most affordable veggie/vegan food in the area

Pros: Tasty, Cheap!, Friendly staff who spoke English

Cons: Locals area, not many tourists

A piece of heaven in the Sin city of Asia

This restaurant is a paradise for any vegetarian. Great thai food with "mock meat" for a good price. Redemption might be possible after all...
