I've lived in Greenpoint for five years, and Amarin is the best thai in the area. Family owned business, great customer service and SUPER FAST! The atmosphere is not much inside, but it's BYOB so you can make it as fancy as you like. Their pad thai is bonkers good, but so is the Pad See-Ew, the Panang Curry and... More

Great typical friendly. A must. The pad Thai is a must. But feel free to try all specialties. Calamari, dumplings, fish cakes. Tasty! Casual and great prices!

I love the Thai Barbecued Chicken. I have also had chicken with cashews, different Pad Thai, and Dumplings. Everything is always delicious. The restuarant also has a rotating art exhibition on the walls. I, and anyone I bring, always have a great meal.

Amazing homemade and hand pulled noodles! This place has a little bit of everything and is more of an Asian fusion. Prepared food to go is available such as, kimchee, mushrooms wrapped in cris tofu, Phó, curry, rice dishes.
