This place is all about the food. The service is quick just like most Asian places. Not much atmosphere but friendly. The satay and coconut soup are fantastic with just enough spice. Great Pad Thai. We also really like the yellow curry, panang curry, honey pork, and spring rolls. Their brown rice is delicious as well. We go or get... More

I should start this review by admitting that I've not eaten Thai food before, and so I am unable to do a comparison. With that in mind, here is my review: - The staff was very friendly and the service was good. - The restaurant is quite nice with plenty of room with 'regular' tables/chairs and sunken 'tables/benches'. - The...

We have been going here for years and like it a lot. It is family operated and has really good food.

Lunch with a friend. The food was average but the presentation had some detail to it and looked appetizing. Decorative veggies looked very fresh. I had the red curry which was average. The Thai ice tea tasted like all the rest.

I "eat" here perhaps 15-20 times per year, almost always getting some variation of the same thing: Panang Curry, Pad Thai, rice and essentially always to-go. The staff is friendly (even though I never tip on to-go orders) and even notices when I change my order. Since they do a lot of to-go business, the restaurant is often only 20%... More

A fairly standard Thai menu, good service, fairly quick, & clean. The prices are similar to other Thai restaurants.

We stopped in here this month at the request of a friend that lives here and wanted to try it out. I was not impressed. The Thai food was just average. Even though the restuarant was empty, it was almost impossible to get the waitress to acknowledge our existence. The flavors were more Chinese than Thai, and I cannot say... More

We were looking for a place to have lunch before seeing a movie. Our options were limited given it was Christmas Day. Amarin Thai was across the street from the AMC so we stopped. And I'm glad we did. The restaurant was empty except for a few tables. It was early, though, otherwise this might have been a "red flag".... More

My baseline for Thai is the pad thai. In this case I'd rate it average-to-good. The Mango chicken was excellent, but we were disappointed by the soft shell crab. Prices were acceptable. When the bill came though, the tip was included... strange for a family of 5. Not a large party, but fine. Then when my credit card was run... More

We enjoyed a very good meal at this restaurant. It was not busy when we went. The service was fine. The food was fresh and the dishes were tasty. The dishes come out one or two at a time but this suited us because we shared all of them. We had a good green papaya salad, a tangy BBQ beef... More
