A fairly standard Thai menu, good service, fairly quick, & clean. The prices are similar to other Thai restaurants.

We stopped in here this month at the request of a friend that lives here and wanted to try it out. I was not impressed. The Thai food was just average. Even though the restuarant was empty, it was almost impossible to get the waitress to acknowledge our existence. The flavors were more Chinese than Thai, and I cannot say... More

We were looking for a place to have lunch before seeing a movie. Our options were limited given it was Christmas Day. Amarin Thai was across the street from the AMC so we stopped. And I'm glad we did. The restaurant was empty except for a few tables. It was early, though, otherwise this might have been a "red flag".... More

My baseline for Thai is the pad thai. In this case I'd rate it average-to-good. The Mango chicken was excellent, but we were disappointed by the soft shell crab. Prices were acceptable. When the bill came though, the tip was included... strange for a family of 5. Not a large party, but fine. Then when my credit card was run... More

We enjoyed a very good meal at this restaurant. It was not busy when we went. The service was fine. The food was fresh and the dishes were tasty. The dishes come out one or two at a time but this suited us because we shared all of them. We had a good green papaya salad, a tangy BBQ beef... More

A hole in the wall close to the Avatar Hotel. No booze, that sucked but I survived, my colleague and I shared a pad thai and a chicken curry, both were good, fresh and worth the $20 our meal cost. I would return if in the neighbourhood.

We were in the mood for Thai food and live nearby so we decided to go here. HUGE MISTAKE !!! The service was terrible and the food was literally inedible. We have eaten at many places from The City all the way to San Jose and rarely complain. I felt so cheated by this restaurant, I had to write a... More

i took some friends to eat here, and was horribly embarrassed by a cockroach that came by our table to make its manners. the food is decent here. some day, i will run into a thai place that can do a killer tom yum gai. until then...three stars for you!

I'd give this 3.5 if a half star was available. Many of the items on the menu are quite good; especially is you are a meat-eater. Their Thai BBQ Chicken for example is very good. Tofu/veggie dishes however leave much to be desired... Dishes tend to come out one at a time, so that one person at the table is... More
