We visited Aroy-d for an early dinner on Valentine's Day 2013.
We were seated quickly and the staff were very friendly. They were a little shocked when I spoke to them in Thai, which was funny!
The menu is quite extensive and I'm wondering if it's too big and they're trying to do too much.
We had curry puffs and vegetarian spring rolls for entree and both were nice. Mains were beef with chilli and honey and roast duck. The duck was very tasty, but the beef was battered and deep-fried and was pretty much like the old-style honey chicken you'd get in a dodgy Chinese restaurant.
Having travelled many times to Thailand I am fairly critical of Thai food here in Australia and I was a little disappointed. The mains just didn't have that amazing freshness and taste that you'll get in Thailand, but it wasn't terrible.
Service was efficient and friendly. The kitchen has a chime set up instead of a bell to alert waitstaff to take meals out and the chime has a funny little tune that cracked us up every time it went off. That and all the Thai ladies yelling and laughing in the kitchen made us feel that we were back in Thailand again.
I think Aroy-d is a nice little local restaurant and with a bit of menu streamlining it could be really good.
