4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2014 NEW

We were in town for a conference and someone had recommended this place to us. The wait staff was awesome. We brought a large group and the ladies working there made us feel more like we were visiting relatives than we were strangers in a new city. The appetizers were great, the spring rolls both fried and un-fried, the Prawn... More

We've chosen Ar Roi based on close proximity to union square (hotel) and tripadvisor recommendations. Restaurant has approx. 50 seats. Service was excellent and pro active. Starters will server 2-3 people. E.g. fresh spring role comes as 6 large pcs. Dishes are typical thai with chefs special recommendations available. Pricing is as expected for the area (entree 12 - 18USD,... More

One of several good options on Post Street. Good waiters, tasty thai and cheap. Warmly recommended. Crispy noodles, mango salad and curry dishes worth a try.

The food was excellent. The older waitress was very pleasant but the younger of them (in her 40's) looked kind of grumpy, didn't feel welcoming. The total judgment would be higher but to end a nice dinner the staff had put circles around both "Tip" and the suggested tip, it felt very rude, I haven't seen that during any of... More

Had dinner here and ordered the Panang Curry. The sauce was strange and tasted like brown gravy more than Panang. Cute little place but would not go back. I've had much better Thai food.

Excellent Thai food in ambient surroundings with first class service, so good that we went back and again were extremely impressed. Give it a go you will not be disappointed.

Ar Roi proved to be a nice find. The food was almost too pretty to eat, and everything served seemed to be prepared with very fresh ingredients. I would have like things to be a bit spicier (given that it was Thai), but others were probably quite pleased with the milder versions. I did ask for my dishes to be... More

Reviews are always interesting. I checked Ar Roi before we went out with reviews of 1 - 4, but totally agree with the overall 4. Nice quite atmosphere, service was excellent, meal size more than adequate and price very reasonable especially in light of all the above. Went in around 6: pm and shown right to a table. Order was... More

This is a good Thai restaurant in close proximity to theaters and downtown. It has a nice clean feel and was a delightful dining experience. It was a good choice for a gathering of old friends. Everything we ordered was delicious and tasted fresh and flavorful. The pumpkin curry was especially good.

Had read other negative reviews but this restaurant was close to our hotel and we were craving Thai food. Place was clean and comfortable. Service was prompt and attentive. Food was very good and portions were more than adequate. We opted not to have any drinks other than tea and water and did not receive any negative feedback or attitude... More
