Incredibly flavorful food. Green curry was outstanding. Mango ice cream dessert a total winner. Out of the way but don’t let that deter you

This place is a little out of the way from the strip, but it is totally worth it! I had Thai Tea, Red Curry Fish Cakes, and the Pad Thai. Everything was delicious especially the thai tea. I could have gotten the pad thai to be spicier, but it tasted good anyways. I would definitely recommend coming here if you are looking for good food in Vegas. Ken was a very nice server as well!

Loved this place! In a shopping area outside of the strip, but easy taxi ride there. Great food. Coconut soup was the flavor and scent of Thailand. The mango sorbet dessert was one of the loveliest and tastiest ones I have had.

Our experience at Arawan Thai was excellent. Everything from the appetizers (Arawan Spring Rolls the check was presented at our table prior to receipt of the second dessert - which was likely due to a miscommunication among the waitstaff. Overall a very pleasant evening. We will be back.

The Good: Amazing food! Freshly prepared and well presented. Friendly service all around.

The OK: The atmosphere is nothing to speak of and rather drab. The bathroom was functional but tired and rundown.

The Bad: The restaurant's location is pretty bad for visitors to Las Vegas. The strip mall is dark and rather sketchy. Our taxi driver had to put the address in his phone to find the place and once we were there had a hard time locating it. The same was true for the taxi that picked us up.

If Arawan were in a better location I believe it would do significantly more business as there are no other Thai restaurants with this level of quality food at this reasonable of a price in LV.

Always eat at Arawan when I am in Vegas. The staff is super friendly and every thing I have eaten here has been great. If you are at the North end of the strip like Wynn, Venetian or Treasure island it is only 5 minutes away by Uber or car. You’ll be glad you gave it a try

The restaurant is off in the cut . It’s worth trying. Great customer service . The place was clean and setting is very nice for a date. Low lights candles with soft music. Food prices are reasonable. I had the Thai BBQ Chicken and it was GOOD. You get a whole chicken with rice and salad. Desert is made fresh. Matter of fact, everything is made fresh. They open at 5 for dinner.

The entire meal was superb. We tried several appetizers that were served quickly and were all presented beautifully. They were delicious. Then came the several main dishes. Each one better than the next, short rib panang was outstanding. Sea bass was great as well as chicken with mint. Drunken noodles with duck is superb. Basil fried rice with shrimp. We will definitely be back. It had been to long since we had dine here. All of us loved our meal.
