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.

I love the food here. It is hands down the best Thai food in Marin. Pad Thai is amazing here. Everything is. The chef offers great specials and pairs the menu with his favorite wines and beers. Great stuff.

We were craving some spicy food & Arun dies not disappoint. The waiter used 1-5 scale for requesting the amount of heat we wanted. We were for 4 & it was perfect. Flavorful!

We visited for lunch and had a very good meal. The pork dishes were especially spicy and tasty. The service was also very good. We will visit again on our next trip.

I can't go here very often because I always over order and over eat. Love the soup with lemongrass, shrimp, mushrooms and tomatoes but be forewarned when they ask how hot you want it (scale of 2 to 5 bells) be conservative. I love hot food. I order 3 bells and it was quite hot, but still enjoyable. The BBQ... More

I used to be a regular customer, but after today I will no longer set foot on this premises nor will I spend one more penny here after the service I was given!! My friends and I came today to enjoy both the food and each other's company, but when it came time to order the food things changed. They... More
