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.

This is an excellent Thai restaurant. It’s nice to get away from the casinos and go to such a wonderful restaurant. I had the sea bass and my husband had the green curry. We also had the coconut ice cream dessert. It was all very good and the spice was as it should be - hot should be hot and medium should bead a sweat. The service was also exceptional. They keep up with your table and keep everything clean. When I return to Vegas I will eat there again.

I’ve eaten a lot of Thai food, this is hands down the best I’ve had. The flavors, choices, customer service was outstanding. I will make a point to be back, as this was a business/pleasure trip to Vegas. Don’t be fooled by the strip mall exterior, came inside and blown away by this Thai restaurant.

お料理、サービスともに申し分ない高いレベルでした。
特にトムヤムクン、タイチャーハン、カレーの上にビーフリブを乗せた料理が抜群でした。
レベル相応のお値段(結構お酒を飲んで50-80$/人)ですが、行く価値ありのお店だと思います。
ラスベガスでこんなに美味しいタイ料理に巡り会えると思っていなかったので、とても幸せな気持ちになりました。
ありがとうございました。

This is my second time here. We used to go to Lotus of Siam before their flood. Then, we found this place in the same shopping center. Very nice servers. Food was excellent both times. Last time I got the giant catfish that covers the whole plate. It was memorable and delicious. This time I go the pad thai which was also excellent. My wife likes tofu I like chicken, so we got both on one order and split it. It was huge. I head a lot about their desserts too, so I saved enough room to try their chocolate lava thingy. It was great. I will probably stop in here every time I visit Vegas.

This lovely restaurant not only boasts intricate flavors and creative menu, nut is a welcome respite from the chaos of the Strip and mediocre overpriced meals. While set in a seemingly abandoned strip mall, you open the door to a world of kindness, impeccable service, and a combination if local and visiting customers. Treat yourself. Always one of my favorites.

Don’t let the outside put you off. Easily accommodated our table for 8 and then extended when more showed up. All 11 people in the group enjoyed their meals, hope to return. Recommend the specials on page one of the menu. Even had a vegan section of the menu. 10/10.

We were in town for a tradeshow and heard that there were several good Thai places. We ended up with Arawan based on reviews and availability. It was yummy. It is in a bland strip mall but the food is tasty. We thought the wine was a bit pricey and skimpy. We tried the recommendations of the waiter - including the larb. They were delicious though a little pricier than other options on the menu. Recommend!

We had a family dinner here over the holidays and we arrived at 5:00 PM when they opened. It was quiet, service was attentive and the food was excellent. The dishes were definitely spicy regardless if we chose mild or extra hot. I always choose mild and here it was a bit spicy for me. Regardless, the flavors were good and everyone enjoyed the food.

My friend recommended Arawan and my only desire was that it was better than Lotus of Siam (mediocre and high priced), which is located on the other side of the parking lot. Most of the dishes we ordered were very good. The exceptions were the rib eye, which was over done even though we ordered it medium rare and cut very thin. The texture of the meat did not seem like ribeye. The crispy duck was also overdone, dry and not very crispy. Overall, I'd still say it was better than Lotus, but not as good as some of the places I go to in Southern Cal.

We waited almost 1 hr for our food. Another table who came after us received their food first. Our waitress was very stressed and basically told us that she was busy and she needed to get our order and it would take a while for us to get our food but we never thought it would take that long. Food was very pricey for the amount and quality. We would not recommend this restaurant to any of our friends who visit Vegas

This is a great location away from the hustle and bustle of the strip. Ample free parking. The downside is the actual center where it is located. Rather run down but safe. Inside Arawan is like an oasis in the desert. Pleasant, intimate and absolutely delicious! And consistent!

Amazing! We love Thai food & eat out a lot.
Was in Vega w/friends for my 65 birthday & found this on -line . Have to admit from outside it is very non descript & we thought oh-oh . But once thru the door the staff was extremely friendly & attentive.
For us Thai food snobs this is the place !!
Just wish they had a restaurant in Washington !
