I reckon I've eaten at every Thai restaurant in Adelaide 2 or 3 times minimum unless the first visit was really bad. In reality I don't think Adelaide has a good thai restaurant, I can think of 6 restaurants in Sydney's "Thainatown" area that just kills anything here, sadly.
But back to Amarin, have been there 3 times in past 12 months - the food is basic but really fresh, and full of great flavours. If you don't specifically request hot or chillie, all of the dishes are quite mild so you can take anyone there and there should be no complaints.
The delivery of the dishes is unusual (almost like being in Thailand). There seems to be no specific order, you might get steamed rice 5 minutes before any mains, which can quite often be spaced out over an hour. But you just have to chill and go with the flow. If you are a stress head this may not be the restaurant for you.

As this Restaurant is not very far away from where we live we decided to walk there.
We've heard positive feedback from this place - so why not.
The only thing that let us down this night was the service as the food was very nice.
When a table of 5 people order quite a few dishes you just don't bring out one dish at the time, especially when you bring out the rice first then nothing followed by vegetables then nothing.
If five people are sharing meals, they need to come out at the same time.
We will come back and try again as the food was nice - hopefully the service will improve.

The restaurant is inviting from the time you walk in...............not cluttered with "stuff" and the tables were not sitting on top of each other
The décor is very nice.
The food...........wonderful!................and not expensive.
Staff were very friendly and the service was good.
We were on holiday and sorry we didn't have time to return.
If in North Adelaide treat yourself , you won't be disappointed.
