We thought it would be a special evening, but nothing seemed good at this restaurant. The service was OK but not overly friendly, the meals in some respect came too fast! How can something be cooked that fast? The quality of the food was dismal. We have had Thai food at a number of restaurants around the world and this... More

By the time our family visited this restaurant there were few guests and we had a dinner in such a cozy, quiet atmosphere. The place is small and seems to be managed very neatly. I love the interior decoration of the restaurant. Foods, on the other hand, was disappointing. I ordered Thai beef salads and was too salty. I asked... More

Had three very nice dishes for dinner. Lighting was very dim was our only complaint. Beautiful outdoor setting overlook a calm bay unfortunately it was raining that evening.

The food was good but very expensive and rice had to be ordered separately for dishes which usually include it. Also dishes were delivered at different times. The ambience is nice with a view of the sea. The staff was quite attentive and very polite.

Baan Aarya had a great opportunity to be something very special. It is in a lovely setting, in a great, glass-dominated, airy, but traditionally-inspired building, with outdoor tables also on offer. Unfortunately, its food lacks authenticity, despite being priced above most Thai restaurants in nearby SIngapore, let alone local Indonesian offerings. This is really Thai food cooked in the Indonesian... More

They have both indoor and outdoor seating which are both as good. Food was great! Please try their coconut soup and their dessert. Service was excellent as the staffs were attentive to... More

We returned to Bintan after our first trip 6.5yrs ago and couldn't wait to dine at Baan Aarya again! There was 5 of us and we all ordered an entree and main each to share. The standout entree was the coconut seafood soup and papaya salad. Mains were exceptional! We ordered massaman beef, Penang curry, Beef Basil and Pad Thai... More
