We came here for team dinner (7 co-workers) and had a great time. The wait staff was very accommodating and we did 7 or 8 dishes family style which worked out really well. Reservations were easy to get. Everything was very good, by my favorites were the whole deep-fried fish and the duck panang curry special. The restaurant is in a strip mall about 5-10 minutes from LV Blvd by Uber.

We chose this restaurant because it was reported to be a diamond in the rough. Was definitely in a rough neighborhood but not much of a gem. We ordered one of their top wines and it tasted like it had been stored for six months on the top shelf of a hot kitchen. The calamari was batter with tiny bits of squid. The rest of the food was ok but I’d recommend searching elsewhere for a good meal.

Great service, great food, very helpful and friendly. (You have to get past the terrible facade out front!) But GO inside, you’ll be pleasantly surprised. We ordered spring rolls, Duck drunken noodles, Thai fried chicken, and Panang Curry. All were amazing! The portions are large and can be shared.

Off the strip in a lower rent part of town. Looks iffy from the outside but some of the best food in Vegas. Plenty to pick from even if you’re not into Thai food.

This place was so unexpected. Do not be concerned with the plaza. I invited out of town friends. I had never been but saw good reviews and reserved. We loved it. The staff was amazingly friendly and attentive. The food was styled beautifully. It was so tasty. We would come again.

The Penang curry Duck was the dinner special on valentines 2/14/19 and was the best my girlfriend and I have ever had. We love to share multiple dishes, so we also ordered the pineapple fried rice and their signature prawn pad Thai dish. Wow... everything was delicious. We actually couldn’t eat it all so we mixed the three dishes together and brought the leftovers back to our room. We didn’t have a microwave, but split the leftovers in the AM for breakfast and ate it cold; we couldn’t believe how good the leftovers were.

It is an off-strip place in an old strip mall, but the inside is nice, it’s not overcrowded; and the quality, portion and taste of all food was excellent. My girlfriend and I want to go back to Vegas now just to eat at Arawan again!

It was the second time we've been to Vegas and made a special trip to the restaurant and this time we brought friends.

It was as good this time as it was last time. Our friends agreed and thanked us for taking them somewhere new and fantastic.

Its definitely worth escaping the ding-ding of lights and noise for an incredible dining experience.

Food was terrible. Dry tasteless Thai wings. Crispy duck was so dry. Texture of old pot roast. Arawan Pad Thai, which is a chefs special was clearly made hours/days earlier. Food was served 15 minutes after ordering. Clearly pre-made. Seriously, duck in 15 min. Wait staff was excellent and the ambiance was nice.

Food was outstanding and service was prompt and thoughtful. My table was reserved with my name on it. There were a number of surprising touches throughout the meal, like complimentary won tons with a delicious sauce and salads with unique ingredients. We opted for the “usual” Pad Thai but it was surprisingly topped with two large prawns in a split shell and encased in a pastry of some kind. Unusual presentations made the meal special. Ambiance within the restaurant is good, but it is within a run down mall. Don’t let that stop you from enjoying Arawan.

We love their pad thai, although the grilled shrimps came with it is a bit cold. The next time around, I will probably just order their regular pad thai (without the grilled shrimps)
We also order a bowl of tom yum soup and their duck. It's all right. Their duck is a bit dry.

When we came, it's very busy (they have party as well), hence service and pace of foods were a bit slow. We even didn't get one of the dishes we ordered, hence we cancelled it.
