I ordered 2 appetizers for dinner here and both were very tasty. The curry puffs are unique and definitely worth ordering. I also had the calamari and the grill flavor was so delicious. Whenever I am in the area, I will make sure I eat here.

This small Thai restaurant is oddly located in a commercial area of Novato, and is easy to miss. The interior decor is decent but nothing terribly elegant. We ate here a few years ago, and thought the food was good but nothing outstanding. Revisiting it the other night, we were blown away. This place has evolved into one of the... More

I had been reading the reviews of this place and never got around to eating there until last night. I never would have imagined there would be such a great restaurant located in an industrial/commercial area within the town I live in. I have enjoyed Thai food all over the Americas and Asia including multiple trips to Thailand. I would... More

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.

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:)
