We had Pad Thai and Spring Rolls -- agreed that it was the best Pad Thai we had ever eaten. While we didn't sample anything else on the menu, judging by the two dishes that we had, I would say this is a really good Thai restaurant.

Ate there last night. Service was very prompt and friendly. Tom Yum soup was a little disappointing as it contained inedible leaves that you had to pull out manually. The entrees were plentiful and tasty although the Pad Thai was somewhat under seasoned. ..it also left me with a raging thirst about 2 hour s later. MSG?

Went there for dinner with two colleagues. Service is fast and good. I had a mild curry and sticky rice (Beef Kang Panang) which was good, one colleague had Choo Chee Pla (Fish) which she did not like much as the fish filet was very hard, the other colleague had BBQ Prawns and Chicken which he liked.

This restaurant was very close to our hotel which was perfect after a long day of walking. The food was excellent and the service good.

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
