Ar Roi was close to our hotel and as the whole family like Thai, we decided to give it a try. Good selection on the menu. We had spring rolls and chicken satay for starters, both were good. Main courses were OK - fried rice and different curries - the latter a bit bland without much taste. While OK, we... More

I made a group reservation based on TripAdvisor ranking. When we got there, I got a little scared because the place did not look really nice, there was a strong detergent smell and we were the only customers. However, I was pleasantly surprised with the dishes, which were really tasty. So, the place had nothing fancy, but the food was... More

Thai is usually a good choice for vegetarian food and this was right near where we were staying. We didn't need to book and there was a steady stream of people so the restaurant was reasonably full all the time we were there. The food was pleasant and tasted broadly like Thai food I have had elsewhere but there was... More

We made reservations for a special event and called just before we went to verify our reservation. We were told it was cancelled. They booked a private party for that night and no one else could dine. No phone call nor e-mail. I guess money is more important than reputation. Pretty tacky don't you think?

From the very first time I ate here back in the late 90's, this has been my favorite Thai restaurant. We discovered it while visiting SF while staying at a Union Square hotel. We were walking down the street trying to decide between 2 Thai restaurants we had seen. An actor from Phantom of the Opera was walking in front... More

We found Ar Roi several years ago while in town as tourists - stayed at a Union Square hotel - and loved it. We live here now and finally got around to going back. Stopped in last weekend for lunch and were thrilled to find the same high quality food and thoughtful service that we'd experienced before. And the prices... More

Probably our best value meal in San Francisco. A couple blocks west of Union Square; easy walking distance to many hotels. Authentic Thai food at a good price and in a pleasant and clean environment. Obviously too many tourists as the waitress asked several times about spice level. We assured her we were fine with spicy food and were greatly... More

We found that the food in San Francisco was very expensive until we stumbled upon Ar Roi.This is a lovely restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere. the food was excellent and the service was efficient and extremely friendly. I highly recommend a visit.

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.
