This would have to be the most over rated and over priced restaurant I have been to in a long, long time.
The minimum price is $75 per head for a 7 course meal---4 appetizers, two mains, and a desert. The food was mediocre at best and the serves were minuscule.
The place was deserted on a Friday night so I guess the word is getting out --- don't go, you will be hugely disappointed.

Seated in a private alcove, we spent over two hours savoring each course from the $85 Prix Fixe option. Beginning with the "One Bite Salad" through the two desserts, everything was fabulous. Highly recommended for anyone who loves, and remembers, great dining experiences.

My wife and I love Thai food. We had the seven course tasting menu. We thought it was very good. Great service and good wine list. We would go again.

Hadn't been here in a few years, and was honestly a bit worried by recent reviews. Even more worried by how empty the restaurant seemed to be (disappointing). But the concerns evaporated when the food arrived. Had the 12-course meal, and was delighted that all six appetizers were different from previous times (the main courses were at least 3 the same). I can see where the novelty of the presentation might wear off, but I was still taken by dishes like the mussel fried into a rice flour crisp. All dishes were very good, and some were excellent, including the usual favorite masaman curry beef tenderloin and the lobster. Other standouts included a crab appetizer. Not a place to go often, but definitely worth a visit every few years!

Have been to Arun's multiple times in the past with nothing but top notch service and food. So on Valentine's Day, we went with the same expectations. The food, albeit tasty was WAY OVERPRICED for the quantity that we ordered. Dinner for 2 with one bottle of wine was $425. Too bad. Won't come back.
