The real deal Nov 04, 2011
This restaurant is located in the heart of Thai town Los Angeles so the competition is stiff. Of all of the places I've eaten at in LA, this is probably one of the 3 best. Bring cash because they don't take credit cards but they do have an ATM.


Papaya Salad and get it with peanuts and dried shrimp.

Cheap Prices, Great Thai Food Mar 21, 2008
Ruen Pair is a tiny little restaurant in a non-descript strip mall in Thai Town. The interior is functional and casual -- nothing fancy. But the food itself is a great value for its price. Most entrees were under $7-8 and the portions were very generous.

We had the steamed catfish, vegetable curry, and crispy pork. All the dishes were pretty good -- nothing mind-blowing, but just good all-around food for relatively cheap. The crispy pork was crispy was crispy, but also a bit too fatty. The catfish itself didn't have much flavor, but the sauce it was in was quite good.

I'd definitely go back just to try the other dishes. Although the dishes we ordered were not amazing, I bet there are some truly hidden gems here that are incredible. The menu is exhaustive, the ingredients are fresh, and the cooking seems authentic. Will be back to try out more...
