The food here is really very good, the service is friendly and the atmosphere is calm and relaxed in a pleasant interior - don't let the outside food you!

Excellent food, and the chef grows many of the peppers and produce himself. Great for business lunch or dinner. The crispy basil chicken is excellent.

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.
