This is one of the best Thai restaurants we have experiences in the country. We do not know the area, but it seems to us to be a commercial/industrial area which is an interesting location for such a fine restaurant.......So, do not let the location fool you. Another interesting observation.....German beers and wines were available (in our experience, rare for... More

Eight in our party. We selected a wide range of entrees (to share) and all were cooked to perfection. Reserved table was ready when we arrived. Courteous and accommodating staff.

This was my forth visit to Arun Thai this year and once again I wasn't disappointed. Everything I've sampled from the menu so far has met expectations. The level of spice is just right for me, and the beer and wine selections are perfect.

My family loves this restaurant, it's our first choice for any special occasion, and I have never been disappointed by anything I've ordered here. The service and atmosphere are warm and friendly. You must try to the pumpkin red curry.

I love this place. It's tiny and quaint with a very pleasant ambiance. Everything on the menu is amazing. I love the pad Thai and the yellow curry. Be sure to order the Thai shrimp roll as an appetizer. You won't be disappointed.

The food here was really good! I couldn't give it an excellent score because I've had hole-in-the-wall Thai that was tastier with a lower price tag, but that doesn't mean to say the food wasn't delicious! Would recommend if you're in Novato craving it.

This is my go to place when I want a Thai Iced Tea and some good curry. They have good service with a nice atmosphere, even though I get take out most of the time. The kids love the basic stuff but I love the hot stuff. Make sure to ask for it extra spicy if you would like to... More

We went to Arun. Our third dinner there this year. Food was good, service even better. It was late. In fact, we were the last seated before closing. I attribute the rush to close to the lack of panache. I will try to go earlier next time.

Thank Dr S
