Arawan Thai Bistro & Dessert Ratings and Reviews
We were in Vegas celebrating my husband’s birthday. He loves Thai food so we checked out all the Thai restaurants in the area and Arawan was given the highest reviews and I would wholeheartedly agree. We loved the food, ambiance and great service. The desserts were spectacular too. If you like excellent and unique Thai food with exquisite flavor, this is the place!
Can’t wait to come back and try more dishes!!!
Plum Shrimp appetizer was good and presented well. The 2 signature dishes, red curry duck and sea bass, were not good. Very little duck; poor value. The sea bass was a dry small piece of fish, definitely not Chilean sea bass as noted on menu; sauce was totally uninterested; it was like a jar chili garlic sauce. Waiter was attentive. Would not recommend this restaurant for Thai food.
It was a bit hard to find with the GPS as it's in a strip mall with a ton of other restaurants in the same block, but it was worth the drive around the parking lot a few times. The food was fresh, very tasty, unique and well-prepared. The prices were a tiny bit high for the portion size, but again, it was worth it. Service was good, but I guess the kitchen screwed up our order, so it took about 35 minutes for us to get our meals; I do think that is NOT the norm for this place. We went on a Monday night at 8PM and the place was full. Drinks were reasonably priced, but take note that they only have beer and wine, no mixed drinks. Total for 2 appetizers (gyoza and their version of nime-chow roll), Pad see ew, crab fried rice, 3 glasses of wine and one beer was $84.00; with tip, $100.00. If we go to Vegas again, we will definitely go to Arawan again.
I could not in good conscience give the highest rating because the neighborhood is dangerous. The restaurant is located in a huge strip mall. I was lost for 20 minutes driving around a dark parking lot...clearly lost. I did not feel safe outside the restaurant. Once inside everything changed but I felt that they patrons could be get unwanted attention both approaching and leaving the facility. The food was very good, the place was very clean and it was decorated very tastefully...but the neighborhood is a deal breaker for me.
While this restaurant is off the beaten path and taxis had a hard time finding it we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It’s a small local restaurant in a strip mall and the outside is questionable, that being sais....The service was wonderful the food was outstanding and we had a great dinner! Our server guided us as this was my first time eating Thai food. We would definitely return!
Absolutely incredible the food , the service was phenomenal and the presentation of the food was like artwork especially the desert molten cake awesome pad Thai and seafood with black noodles great , it is off the strip easy parking best place in have ever eaten in Vegas pure perfection
Best Thia food I have ever had including apps and desserts. They are over staffed on wait service to the customers benefit.
I don't take time to review anything but this restaurant was too good for me to not tell everyone. Don't let the location fool you, it's great.
We had reservations for this Arawan booked through Open Table, but upon arrival they did not acknowledge that we even had reservations until they double checked. This is our second visit to Arawan and we returned since we had such a wonderful meal the first time. Sadly, this time was not as good as the first visit. Our first visit we ordered the whole catfish and it did come as a whole fish so we wanted to try the whole branzino sea bass this time. W e were disappointed as it was 2 fillets on the plate and not a whole branzino as stated on the menu. We also ordered the pad thai with chicken and mixed vegetables. The chicken pieces in the pad thai were cut into big slices which did not compliment with rest of the dish and the taste was not as good as the first time we went there. I have to say though that the mixed vegetable was rather tasty but the sauce was too watery. A bit pricey for what we got. Probably will not be returning again as there are other better thai restaurants to try.
Food was very good as usual but service was rushed and confused. Our appetizer arrived after the mains! The dessert menu arrived shortly after the appetizer. It felt as if they just wanted us to move along to free up the table, although our total time at the table was only 50 minutes, so we were not lingering. Since it was a Tuesday night, there wasn't a crowd waiting for tables - only 2 people when we left. We have eaten here several times and have never had this experience before. Maybe the success of the place allows them to take customers for granted. We will try other Thai restaurants in Vegas on our next visit.
Food VERY good but their scale for spicyness seems lower than most thai restaurants. And we eat at a lot of thai restaurants. I ordered a #5 and it felt like a 1. Husband ordered spicy #8 and I thought it was more like a 5.
Be sure to save room for dessert. Just don't even think about it. You must order dessert here. They are not only beautiful but taste amazing. Plan to order at least two desserts because it will be too hard to choose just one.
It was our first time here, recommended by a friend. The ambience, the food and service were excellent! Our server was Chef Gail and she was extremely attentive. When we told her it was a birthday celebration, she made her specialty, mango island dessert, and it was incredible! We'd definitely come back here again when we're in Las Vegas!
My sister lives in Henderson and we happened upon Arwan by "accident" the last time I visited for Thanksgiving last year. We couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised. We are lovers of Thai food and the dishes here are beautifully crafted, delicious and well priced. The restaurant has a charming ambiance and service is friendly and attentive. If you're in Las Vegas and want the best Thai food, this is the place by a long shot!
I can not say enough good things about this establishment. We originally had a reservation for 8:30 but had to push it to 9:30 due to a flight delay. We didn't realize they closed at 10 when we arrived but they assured us that it was no problem to order. So we did and received our food and it was incredible. We tried the Pad Thai, Rib eye, duck curry, short rib curry, and squid ink noodles. Every dish was delicious and I would order them all again. Also, can not thank the staff enough for how gracious and accommodating they were. Everyone should come here.
