We dined at Amarin as a large group. I tried several dishes, and they were all excellent. I would not say this is necessarily a Thai restaurant as there is a variety of dishes, but there is definitely enough Thai dishes if that is what you are looking for.

Amarin is a mainstay restaurant in this area of Newton where good dining options are limited. The servers are gentle and friendly. The decor is pleasant too. And the food? Delicious if not exactly creative. The Hot liang soup is terrific as is the pad Thai, fisherman's platter , beef and basil, seafood madness, etc. because it's such a good... More

I cannot say enough how great the service was! The food was great, and the portion was more than enough for the price. Try the duck!

Amarin offers a large selection of delicious appetizers, entrees, and desserts. It is conveniently located and provides off-street parking. The layout can accommodate large groups easily; tables are spaced to ensure privacy and quiet. The food is beautifully prepared; service can be quite slow especially for larger groups.

I was in a class at MIT. Unfortunately, no hotel available close by at a reasonnable price so... End up in Newton. The botel suggested that restaurant.... No expectation... Wow ! Service is excellent, ambiance is nice. Ask for their speciality and the curry shrimp was just great ! Full of flavor, spicy a lot.... Delicious !

The Thai food is very good and the service fabulous. We go as a group of women friends and share dishes which is fun. The Pad Woo-sen, Pad Tai, Lover's Scampi are among some of our favorites.

Usually I get take out from this restaurant but it is also a pleasant dining room. There is parking nearby and I find the quality of the food very consistent. My kids love the pad thai, green curry, satay, and spring rolls. I rarely have ordered anything that I didn't like. The restaurant has been around a long time but... More

I'm sorry to write this, the service was quite nice and the restaurant clean and well decorated. But, unfortunately, the food is really very substandard Thai. We went based on other reviews but were disappointed and won't return.

I've eaten here for 20+years. They always deliver an excellent Thai meal in a very quiet and comfortable atmosphere.

I lived in Thailand for 10 years and have visited this restaurant before moving to Thailand, while living there and after I moved backed to Boston. They are brilliant. The food, service and the ambience are all first rate. Another reviewer said it is divine and I couldn't agree more.
