Two Out of Three . . .

I love the elegant ambiance at Amarin. My masaman curry was absolutely the best. The next order, a spicy beef dish, was my girlfriend's favorite. The third diner in our party ate the crazy noodles, and, unfortunately, was sick with gastric distress for two days afterwards. Hard to say whether it... read more

We eat here at once once a week. Both adults and kids love the food and ambience of the place. The staff is so friendly; they know us by name, and even remember what we usually order ! The price is reasonable, and if a dish is too spicy for you, they will cook it to your liking. If you... More

You just can't get bad Thai food in Boston. This place is the only original tenant of the old Cahners Publishing Building, now called One Newton Place, built in 1986. While everyone else is gone - this place thrives because the food is superb. Validated parking in the garage accessible from Bacon street.

We have eaten here about 5 times in the last year and always liked the food but on our last visit Sunday, the flavors seemed a step up to awesome. Service is always fine, indoor parking free, and wine just what we like. Easy to get to just off Mass Pike Newton Corner.

Amarin wellesley was a favorite spot for years when I would visit my parents, then I moved to Newton Ma and found out the second location is there and is just as tasty. The food is consistent, delishious and authentic....worth the money

Met friends here for dinner. They had been many times and raved about it. Also the reviews on-line were very good so I admit to high expectations. Sad to say they were not met. There was nothing wrong with the food or restaurant but nothing special about it either. I had the Pad See Ew with pork and though I... More

We were guided by our local 'foodie' to her favorite Thai restaurant, Amarin, in Newton Center. Three of us each a very different meal and each was enjoyed. Good food, good service and nice atmosphere will bring us back again.

We have eaten at Amarin many times over the years and each experience is just a bit worse each time. Our most recent trip was bordering on really awful. Service was slow and mildly rude, the food poorly prepared. Like the old joke, the food was awful and not much of it. My standard shrimp pad thai was basically missing... More

Lunch with family can be great or not depending on circumstances. But lunch with family at Amarin of Thailand is fabulous - great food and comfortable surroundings made Lunch with family delightful. Try Wild Boar with Basil or Chicken with Pineapple for a treat. Loved it!

This is the best Thailand food you will ever eat. I have visited many Thai restaurants in the Boston and metro-west area, and you will never find food so fresh, and amazingly delicious. The food is always hot, and the service is always quick, with pleasant waiters. The owner Sam, and his wife are hard workers. They are always working... More
