This place rivals some of the better Thai restaurants around the bay area. Definitely the best in Marin. What a gem that you can find in an industrial business area. The service was not as bad as previously described, but definitely something to be desired. Food is still top-notch. This is a place that we frequent often in Novato.

They make the classics like pad thai or green curry exceptionally well, but they also bring an upgraded expression toall of their dishes. My favorite the isthe barbequed Pork chop perfectly seasoned, served in generous in portions - absolutely delicious! whether you are... More

Arun Thai is a local and popular Thai restaurant and for good reason. Their food is traditional, well priced and consistent. The staff is friendly and informative should you have questions or just wish to chat. We have eaten there about 5 times and have always enjoyed it.

I have had some great food and service here....and some not so good food and service. I will give them another try, but my last two visits were disappointing. Overlooked food, servers too busy to deal with our table. Also very noisy.

Authentic Thai food, seasoned to your desire. A good selection of north east/Isan dishes. Real Thai iced tea. It's as good as it gets. Nice room, plenty of parking.

Fabulous. Superb. Delightful. Really good service and the ambiance is really good. Good value for money here. Don't let the industrial park location fool you.

Our neighborhood local Thai restaurant with pleasant service, tasty food. Authentic Thai management; easy for use to verify as my wife lived in Thailand for a few years. Not too crowded, and quiet. It's in a light industrial business park area, so never a problem for dinner parking. There's a boutique microbrew place next door (Baeltane Brewing) if that's your... More

Since finding this hidden gem we have returned again and again for the finest Thai food around! The restaurant is hidden within a business park, so clean and comfortable inside! The chef is amazing, as is his wife and staff. They are always so welcoming and friendly. The food is out of this world wonderful! Every person that we have... More
