Tasty and spicy

We were very pleased with the 3 dishes we ordered: drunken (wide rice) noodles with chicken, green papaya salad with shrimp and eggplant and tofu. Very tasty and perfect for the three of us. Service was good and prices were reasonable- about $37 total! Will certainly eat here again when in Novato.

My dear friend took me here to celebrate my birthday and it was just lovely. We started off with Curry Pouch (which was a very flavorful appetizer). We split the King Neptune Noodle dish that had lots of fresh seafood and the Red Curry with Duck. Lunch came with a green salad was well. Everything was flavored very well. I'm... More

Food is consistently good, however, on a number of different occasions, the wait staff has been rude, disengaged, flippant, and devil-may-care in attitude. Perhaps it's because the staff are all related and they have nothing to lose. Although the food is pretty good, we've curtailed our visits to Arun due to their unrelenting perception of what they consider customer service.... More

Tried it for lunch on a Tuesday, scoping it out for an office holiday dinner. It's in a business park so not the most beautiful exterior. The interior though is warm and inviting. Was reasonably busy with a good amount of to-go traffic due to the office park. Initial salad had too much iceberg lettuce for me and a lot... More

Never before have I seen sustainable Idaho trout incorporated into a Thai salad, nor had such a delicious crab stir fry. The recommended wine pairing for the crab was perfect as well. Quick and attentive service, pleasant decor and fair prices make Arun a very top choice in a town not noted for its restaurants. Also, Marin Humane Society is... More

Unassuming little place in a small plaza, but the interior decor is really quite nice. Food is excellent and beautifully presented. Flavorful, exciting and something for everyone. Will sometimes have seasonal dishes available too. One criticism is that the servers can sometimes be a little standoffish, but there was some improvement from my previous visit.

The food is very good however, they can't seem to get the service right. When they started, the service was the worst. After many complaints, they have improved greatly but it still isn't what you expect at a good restaurant. Menus should come right away when you are seated. If it takes five minutes or more to get a menu,... More

The food here is amazing. The service is great and the restaraunt is clean. It is also kid friendly. My 4 yr. old Grandson loved the food.
