I knew it was going to be expensive but this time it was a Joke. I had been here years ago when I visited and enjoyed it very much. This time they were just full of themselves. Arriving a few minutes early with reservations on a
Friday night and no one was in the Restaurant. We should have started to run. Dreadful food. Corked Wine. Don't be fooled by the good reviews. You will do better with a $7.99 lunch special at your local Thai Restaurant.

Arun's is more than a restaurant, it's the full experience. If you reconcile yourself to the fact that it is expensive you'll be much better placed to enjoy it all. We went all-in and had the 12 course menu and it was wonderful. The portions are just sufficient that you get all the taste without rolling out feeling over-stuffed at the end. It's a special treat so won't be back in a hurry, but will definitely return some day

We had a 10 course fixed menu. Food was very good, but servings were small, especially the main entrees. Wine pours very short. Service was excellent. Overpriced.

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.
