Arun serves authentic Thai dishes as spicy as you want it or can take it. Delicious Tum Yum always with a wide selection of curries and eat Thai iced tea.

So you are driving through what looks like a business park and then there is this Thai restaurant. They have done a great job on the interior making you forget the outside. We got there on the early side and had friendly fast service. There was a lamb curry that was out of this world. All the dishes were good.... More

We are admittedly Thai food snobs and don't settle for mediocre Thai food. This place is LEGIT. Don't be fooled by their odd business park location in Bel Marin Keys. Highly recommend Arun if eating Thai in Novato. Favorite dishes include the King Neptune, Basil Chicken, Green and Yellow Curry, Spring rolls. So delicious.

Excellent food, and the chef grows many of the peppers and produce himself. Great for business lunch or dinner. The crispy basil chicken is excellent.

On our way up to a rented house for the Xmas weekend, we stopped off Arun Thai for a quick lunch. Prices were pretty steep ($12 for a cup of soup), so we split a lunch special Trout salad. The trout was fine, but the salad greens, real tomato and cashews were the main attraction: fresh, fresh and tasty. Th... More

This is one of the best Thai restaurants we have experiences in the country. We do not know the area, but it seems to us to be a commercial/industrial area which is an interesting location for such a fine restaurant.......So, do not let the location fool you. Another interesting observation.....German beers and wines were available (in our experience, rare for... More

Eight in our party. We selected a wide range of entrees (to share) and all were cooked to perfection. Reserved table was ready when we arrived. Courteous and accommodating staff.

This was my forth visit to Arun Thai this year and once again I wasn't disappointed. Everything I've sampled from the menu so far has met expectations. The level of spice is just right for me, and the beer and wine selections are perfect.
