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 Excellent.
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.
Service was slow, and disorderly.
Amazing foods and desserts! Beautifully designed and decorated!!!
Food was excellent and the service was great. Could not have asked for a better experience! I would highly recommend.
We visit Arawan Thai Bistro every time we are in Las Vegas and they always come through. We love the food and service and recommend this spot to many people!
The service was outstanding and the food excellent. I highly recommend the Tom Kha soup, Larb, and Drunken Noodles.
I visit Vegas twice a year and with every visit I usually go 1-2 times. I have brought so many people and they then in turn visit and bring new people. food is outstanding EVERY TIME.
Food is great. Service is fast. The place was not busy for lunch and we could carry out a conversation without any problem.
The pork shank dish was unbelievable. Unfortunately, I’m not local so the server walked me through how to make it at home.
Superb. If you like Thai food, what else is there to say!
They are serving up the best curry dishes I’ve ever had in my life. The food and service are excellent!
First time at this Thai restaurant and pleasantly surprised. Food is delicious and authentic. Looking forward to returning to try more options.
Such a cute restaurant. I am definitely coming back.
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.
Food was good but not spectacular as expected to be as top Thai restaurant in Vegas.
The service was very good and the food delicious. One of the best Thai restaurants so far
Celebrating friendship and meal before concert.
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.
Horrible service. Avoid this place ....................

Last time we were in town, we made reservations for Lotus of Siam. We thought it was a good sign when there was a line at the door to get in at 5pm. A year later, I was trying to remember which Thai restaurant we had been to and mistakenly made a reservation at Arawan. After contemplating on canceling my reservation at Arawan, we decided to go ahead and keep our Saturday dinner reservations based on other reviews and guess what...we were glad we didn’t! The ambiance and food were better than Lotus of Siam. The menu wasn’t as extensive, but had everything we were looking for. We were definitely impressed and will be back on our next visit! This is our new go-to Thai favorite.
All the positive reviews we read about this place were totally justified: a real gem hidden just a few hundreds yards from the strip. We will come back
The food was absolutely amazing! Don’t let the random location dissuade you. Go there and get a curry!
Seated for 20 minutes...no service so we left
Loved this restaurant so much that we went back two nights later. Authentic Thai cuisine that is outrageously delicious. I highly recommend it for a wonderful meal!!!
The place is a dump, but the food and the staff are fantastic. Authentic Thai food that is delicious. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. A good value for the quality of the food. Just wonderful experience. Just view the rundown center and restaurant interior as AMBIENCE 😆
Be brave and venture out of your comfort zone!
This spot is so worth it. A neighborhood gem.
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
Good Thai food menu and some authentic selections for out of towners looking for good home cooking.
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!
Second visit, did not disappoint! Food and service wonderful!
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.
We had a very tasty dinner at Arawan. Really good food and very friendly service. Don't let the stripmall location deter you, this is a lovely little spot for dinner.
Discovered this great Thai restaurant on my last trip to Las Vegas. Outstanding really great food and the desserts were terrific. What a great place! Had Pad Thai and Red Curry and Seafood on squid ink noodles. Go. Forget the hotel restaurants. This place is great.
This place is delicious! I wasn’t sure what
To expect based on the location but it did not disappoint. Everything was fresh and well prepared with exceptional service as well.
Every thing about Arawan is top notch.
We return time after time to the same lovely experience .
A bit hard to find but well worth the trip. Food was great.
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.
