One of Bangkok’s best-loved restaurants has opened its doors to diners once again. Following a stunning 18-month top-to-toe refit, the renowned Ruenton restaurant at the Montien Hotel on Surawong Road is now taking bookings.

Recognized by the Michelin Guide for its outstanding cuisine, this lively destination has hosted guests, celebrities and fans from across Bangkok for over 40 years. Diners can once again enjoy dazzling, relaxed surroundings whilst feasting on Reuton’s much-loved signature dishes including Hainanese Chicken Rice, Thai Fried Noodles, Crispy Mussels and Dim Sum.

Commenting on the return of the all-new Ruenton, Executive Director of the Montien Hotel. Mr Montien Tantakit, said: “We are extremely proud to mark this exciting new chapter in Ruenton’s history as we welcome back regular customers together with a new generation of diners to celebrate this amazing transformation.”

Following its spectacular redesign by acclaimed interior designer P49, Ruenton is once again fast becoming a go-to venue for people of all ages and tastes, thanks to a generation-spanning menu and sensational decor. The restaurant is also set to become a big hit for corporate clients thanks to the impressive surroundings of its private rooms.

The return of Ruenton will be followed in mid 2021 by a stunning new bistro and wine bar called Phar-Ram IV as part of the full reopening of the five-star Montien Hotel.

Ruenton regulars will be delighted to know that Executive Chef Amnuay Aneksuwan is back in charge of the kitchen, along with many of his former team. Instrumental in making the Ruenton one of the most celebrated restaurants in Bangkok, Chef Amnuay has created an extended open kitchen and live cooking stations clearly inspired by Thailand’s popular street markets.

Covering 800 square metres, almost double the size of the former venue, the restaurant can seat up to 250 diners in a choice of settings that are ideal for lounge dining, intimate dinners, social gatherings and corporate get-togethers. In addition, there are two private dining rooms, three function rooms and a relaxed bar area.

The interior design of Ruenton has a breathtaking modern retro feel, ingeniously emphasized by contemporary furnishings complemented by a palette of classic Thai tones of basil greens, deep indigo blue and mustard hues. There’s also charming reminders of the old days including a priceless collection of Chinese pottery and antiques gifted from the owners of the Montien Hotel.

Mr Montien Tantakit commented: “Our design team has been absolutely magnificent in creating a restaurant that is spectacular in so many ways, from the décor and furnishing to the open kitchens and the sheer friendliness of the ambiance.
