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!

  1. That's actually a good price for all the amazing and amount of food you got, not to mention it IS a Michelin start restaurant. You couldn't even get half that stuff in the states for that price, the prawns dish and the fish alone would have cost that here. What a great experience you all had and a beautiful place as well.

  2. ดูเกือบจบ กูต้องตามลอยไปกินแน่ๆ ไลน์นัดแฟนละ พอเห็นราคาจบเลยสัสข้าวต้มหน้าปากซอยพอละ

  3. You make everything taste so good I'm sure it does but the way you enjoy your meals make it even more facenating to watch you eat. I love all your videos bless you and your family.

  4. กลับไทยรอบหน้าคงต้องตามไปลอง คนไทยต้องตามฝรั่งไปกิน น่ากินมาก

  5. Mark eats a lot . If I eat something small I get fat automatically within 6 hours . So technically I become a blimp after eating . I contain my eating even though I love eating !!!!!!! In conclusion, I wish I was skinny to eat a lot . ……………. and yes I’m fat now . I love his channel , he eats every dish with passion , to introduce the taste of the food . He’s not afraid to explore different extreme foods around the world. On another note , I’ll go to my local deli to order a boring sandwich… that’s how far I’ll get to travel far away to try new types of food with beautiful ingredients.

  6. What is the program that you have so that all the over purchase does not end up in the trash.???? Esp wild sea food!!!

  7. Wow!! Of all the videos, this is one of my favorite…. That food ???????? the quality, the presentation ☺️?????????? nyummy nyummy nyummy…

  8. my gosh Mark i am drooling here in Los Angeles , California…. I just wish we have those fresh seafoods here…i miss the seafoods in the Philippines…

  9. $300 for 5 persons! Where in North America can you get that much quality seafood for $60/pp??? Without a Michelin! That price is a steal!!
