Great quality takeaway. Pre ordered for collection, was bang on time.Great service from friendly staff. Plenty to choose from take away menu. If you are a seafood person, go for the Prawns/crab meat fried rice, highly recommended.

Enjoyed a lovely evening in Aroi while visiting Kilkenny. It had been recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed. Three of us dined and we were all impressed with the standard of food. There was a good choice and our meals were delicious....Staff were very welcoming and attentive. The restaurant and facilities were very clean and all Covid regulations were adhered to. We will definitely revisit and highly recommend Aroi.More

This is my favourite restaurant in Kilkenny and I just cant wait to get back there again for the atmosphere, delicious food and the cocktails - yum. In the meantime as part of our second lockdown we treat ourselves every Saturday night to a family...Aroi night. The teriyaki salmon is amazing and the kids love the Khao Pad beef and chicken dishes. What I really want to do is compliment all at Aroi for making lockdown a little easier and their food is just so consistently good. Well done to Don and all the team.More

Food is awful! Cold, precooked chicken added to meal, bland and just disgusting over all. Service is also very poor. Thai is usually my favourite kind of food but this was just downright terrible.

Had lunch here on a day trip to Kilkenny. Two adults, three young kids. Felt very Covid safe here. Special door handles fitted to allow doors to be opened with arms (not hands). Spotless throughout including the toilets. Well ventilated, good distancing and all staff...wore masks. The food was really good. They tweaked a few dishes to make them work for our kids who can be a bit fussy sometimes. Empty plates all around speaks for itself. Great menu, I could have tried 10 more as so many sounded to be delicious. Best chicken ramen I have had since Bangkok many years ago. A scoop of ice cream for all with some unusual flavours (lime, coconut) was the perfect end to a perfect meal. Reasonably priced also and served quickly but didn’t feel rushed. Highly recommend.More

A lovely evening meal with fab food and very quick service. A bit too quick, felt rushed to get food eaten and go and we are fast eaters. Had starter and mains and a few yummy cocktails. All in all a nice meal but next...time I’d prefer to feel I can sit and digest the meal and take in the surroundings .More

Great food, great service, great value. If you like Asian food, this is a quality restaurant. We are regulars and can attest to the fact that food quality is always consistent, whether sit in or takeaway. There is a great selection of diverse dishes and...some unique options that you won’t find in other Asian restaurants. Very efficient and friendly staff and no matter how busy, always provide a consistent level of service. There are too many good dishes to add all in here but Hong Kong Chicken is a real hit, Chilli Prawns also really good. You have a good selection of wines and again all at competitive prices. In the current climate, staff are all wearing masks and visors, tables have been well spaced, main doors have been adjusted so they don’t require your hand to open them and in general we felt very safe in the restaurant. It is very busy particularly at weekend so advisable although not a requirement to book in advance.More

We visited in mid term where the restaurant was not that busy, so service was very good. No real competition from other customers.
