Hidden in this small commercial sector of Novato is this outstanding family owned gem of a Thai restaurant. Having visited this restaurant more than a dozen times we have sampled just about everything on the menu, never being disappointed by our choices. Everything is so flavorful and fresh. The servers are extremely thoughtful and always confirm how you want your... More

Arun Thai is our first choice restaurant when my wife and I go out to dinner. The environment is nicely decorated but casual, the staff is always pleasant and attentive. The menu is typical for a Thai restaurant, but I have enjoyed every selection I have ordered. My favorite is the yellow curry.

Astonishing food. Fantastic service. Value for money. We had a great first time, in a thai restaurant experience and will definitely be returning.

Absolutely fabulous place. Food excellent, price reasonable. We were a party of five and shared meals. Every one of the dishes was wonderful.

A little hard to find, out of the way. When I drove up, I thought I was at the wrong place. It's nice inside, not too formal, but nice enough for a date. The service was good. Food was great. I had the tofu, vegetables, with peanut sauce. Fresh veggies, generous portions. Nice wine list to boot.

I don't consider myself a "connoisseur" of Thai cuisine but I had some dishes, once in a while ...and usually I stick with them. In "Arun Thai Restaurant" case is a matter of taste, if you like the copious amounts of spices in your food:)

My husband and I had dinner here recently. We ordered the appetizer sampler, green chicken curry and shrimp Pad Thai. The food was fresh, hot and well flavored. The service was friendly and efficient. Get there early or make a reservation as the restaurant is small and fills up quickly. The only reason I did not give it four points... More

We discovered Arun Thai about a year ago and it has become our favorite local restaurant. I can't get enough of their curry dishes and my husband orders the crab fried rice when ever it's on their list of specials. Beef, chicken, lamb, shrimp, crab, veggies, noodles-everything is good and aren't we fortunate to have them in our neighborhood! The... More

We had dinner here based on all the recommendations on Tripadvisor, while travelling through the area. It turned out to be a pretty good experience. The place was certainly packed but we were able to get a seat after a short wait. The place did seem a bit cramped. Nice and classy interior. We had some curry dishes and noodles.... More

I love this restaurant. The food is Asian delicious, my favorite appetizer is the sample of tastes; and I like the specials and the wine pairings. The staff is friendly, and remembers you even if you go a few times a month. The owners are from Bangkok, and the Chef-Owner when he has time will circulate among the tables, saying... More
