Avoid This Place! – We live nearby and wanted some Thai food, so we tired this place. Huge mistake. The service was bad and the food was just awful. The staff just shrugged and brought us the bill when we told them that the food was inedible. (the beef was so bad, it was like it had been around for a month and they still served it)
We should have known better when there was no wait to eat during dinner time. I guess other people already know this place is not worth the time.
Stay away !!!
Yummy dinner - with a child – We've had a lot of really bad dinners recently but Amarin Thai has excelled recently, with tonight being great. We have a 3.5 year old child who is not picky but who loves food and once we're in a restaurant, the food and drinks need to appear quickly. They were quick, offered very nice and attentive service, had really good food at a good price. = Thank you. In the past, they've been sometimes good and sometimes bad, but recently, they've been good every time.
Good Thai without a reservation – The food is good, the restaurant is well-decorated... why isn't anyone there? Well, the prices aren't great, but I blame the little corner of Westgate West--nobody knows they're there. Take advantage and go to a good restaurant where you can be seated right away, even if you have a group of 6. (Don't try to bring 12 people, though. Their big tables seat about 6--maybe 9, if you don't need elbow room.) I recommend the BBQ and the House Special Fried Rice.
Amarian Thai lacks hospitality – Let me start by agreeing the menu is extensive and the food is tasty. As a matter of fact, the first time we came we were so impressed with both the food and the service, we decided to come back. Big mistake. We had reservations, but our table wasn't ready. Understandable, as that sometimes happens, but I asked if we could sit in the traditional seating area and the request was refused, though only two of the three tables were marked w/ reserved signs. We then placed our orders w/ an extremely rude server who made us feel rushed, though the restaurant was only half full, and there were three other employees on duty with her. The food is good, but there are too many other Thai places in the area to tolerate poor service. I won't be back.
Great food! – This place has great food. Everything I have ordered here has been a delightful surprise. I especially enjoyed the pad see ew as well as the vegetarian green curry!
