We ate at Arun's on a Sunday at 5 PM and the restaurant was very quiet, which made the experience even better. The outside is very plain but when you come inside you will be quite pleased with the atmosphere. We had 4 servers taking care of us throughout our 3 hour experience. We had a strict vegetarian with us and she was very happy with all her dishes. 2 of us wanted spicey and 2 wanted mild and they always were clear on which dishes had the spicey or mild sauces. We were asked if we had any preferences were told they could easily substitute something else for the fish or any of the meats. Parking was easy and we were told there is valet parking on Fridays and Saturdays. The 12 courses were delicious and the presentation was amazing. Lots of little extra touches of flowers made out of veggies. We were given fresh silverware with each course. The goldfish made out of carrots were such a fun touch and the waiter asked if we would like to take them home and he placed them in a carryout container with water. I have already recommended this place to so many people. Allow lots of time and let it be your only experience that night, don't try to squeeze it in when you have tickets or a tight schedule. Sit back and enjoy this fantastic food experience! Bring a camera and be sure to take photos of each course. The staff even offered to take pictures of us too.

For the price I paid, I expect exceptional, unique food, attention to detail and excellent service. I also expect to be served all my courses. I arrived with a group of 4 and asked for a menu so we would know what would be served to us. I was told by a waiter that they would verbal describe it when they serve each dish. The set $85 price includes 6 appetizers, 4 entrees (served family style) and 2 deserts. Unfortunately the staff at Arun??s is unable to count up to 12 and missed serving us one of the courses all together. The service was disorganized. We didn??t have a primary waiter but different people bringing out each course. There were times when the food would come out but we had no utensils or plates. When I initially was seated, there are these beautiful plates set out. The staff promptly removed them since they were just for show and never came back with any plates or utensil. Our first course came out and we had nothing to eat it on or with.

The portions were small and what was served was good but it wasn??t anything exceptional. I could have found it at any typical Thai restaurant. I was excepting Thai food that I can??t get anywhere else. I got served Basil Thai Chicken as an entre!?

Appetizer 1 ?? One bite salad: The description explains it
Appetizer 2 ?? Rolled chicken stuff with mushrooms: It was soy chicken! You can get this in any Thai or Chinese restaurants
Appetizer 3 ?? Single Dumpling in broth: reminds me of the glutinous crepe you get at dim sum
Appetizer 4 ?? Noodles with a Single shrimp: It was a deconstructed Pad Thai!
Appetizer 5 ?? Spicy pork soup
Entre 1 ?? Seared Scallop on a bed of asparagus ?? how is this unique Thai dish?
Entre 2 ?? Fried fish with sweet & sour source ?? also served at my neighborhood Thai restaurant. .
Entre 3 ?? Basil Thai Chicken ?? I can get this at any typical Thai restaurant
Entre 4 ?? Braised beef curry ?? by far the best dish
Desert 1 - Baby pear with a small crepe ?? extremely small dish, it was a single bite
Desert 2 ?? Lycee sorbet ?? again a single bite dish

There were suppose to be 12 courses but as I mentioned above, only served us 11.
For the price, I highly suggest you go elsewhere. If you want a good typical Thai restaurant, I suggest you find a place that doesn??t cost over $150 per person for food, drinks and taxes.

My husband and I went to Arun's for our anniversary. It was a surprisingly amazing experience. Arun's is not near any other bars and restaurants, so we did not know what to expect. Make a reservation, and when you do, let them know any food preferences and allergies. It is a 12-course, prix-fixe meal. The staff was incredibly knowledgeable and helped us choose wines pairings masterfully. Though a bit pretentious (and perhaps rightfully so), it is definitely a unique experience, and you will be treated to dishes you will not see anywhere else. Not a "good deal" - our bill with alcohol ended up being around $350. But as long as you know that going in, it's worth the money.

I just left arun and felt extremely compelled to share my review. The 12-course tasting was by far one of the worst meals I've ever had. My dining partner, who is a classically trained chef, said the food was no better than what you would eat at a food court. Nothing tasted fresh, many items were soggy, and some were spiced so much that the flavors masked the integrity of the food. As I paid the bill, I felt completely ripped off. Never, never go there. (I should have known upon seeing all the restaurant's empty seats when we entered the establishment).

I have heard about this restaurant over the years and after seeing it listed in the book "1000 Places to See Before You Die", I made a reservation. It was the worst meal. I could have ordered from my neighborhood thai restuarant and thoroughly enjoyed myself and saved $270.00. The presentation is lovely but if the food doesn't taste fresh, what is the point of carving carrots for hours to look like Nemo. I would rather spend my money at Nomi, Shanghai Terrace or Le Colonial. I felt really bad for the staff. They were very attentive and nice but seem unaware of the horrible food.

When my parents were visiting, my husband and I wanted to take them to the best restaurants Chicago had to offer, and Arun's did not disappoint. Each appetizer was more tasty than the one before (and the presentation was great -- a cute carrot basket on one plate, an abstract fish on another), and the four entrees were each standouts in their own way (I loved the Massman beef and the lobster). And the two desserts were absolutely delicious! It truly was like being royalty in Thailand. I can't wait to go back!

We dined at Arun's for the first time 2 weeks ago. Our dining companions were 1 hour late, yet they seated us and never blinked an eye. The service was wonderful, and the food was exquisite! Presentation, taste, aromas, everything! We will be back.

Love, love, love this place!!! I love how they ask you if you have any dietary likes and dislikes in addition to dietary restrictions. The food presentation is beautiful. The portion sizes are perfect in that you have room in your tummy to try all the many dishes they bring to you. The staff caters to you so you feel as if its your own kitchen. Wonderful experience!

The first few times at Arun's was nice...12 courses of the best of Thai entree. If you go too often, you notice the menu doesn't change much. Great place for a special occasion.

Arun's came highly recommended, and since I LOVE Thai food, I decided that we absolutely had to go.

Not only was the place lovely, the greeter was a joy: She seemed so genuinely pleased with our being there. Our waitress took time to carefully review our dietary preferences. And the fare reflected that exactly. Moreover, she helped with the wine selection, which enhanced the meal even further.

Speaking of the meal, it was wonderful. We were served 6 small appetizers on lovely white plates: they were works of art, both visually and gastronomically. Then came the 4 entrees. They were each so different, and they complemented each other nicely. Finally, there were two desserts, served together: amazing!

My next trip to Chicago will include a visit to Arun's.

i had read mixed reviews in early 2005 and had given this place a miss, especially with what some of the others had said about the limited quantity of food.
after reading the last 2 reviews before mine, i decided to finally visit arun's with my wife.
first, the service is simply excellent. i have been to a few high-end restaurants where i thought that the service is a little overbearing. the folks at arun's were attentive to our smallest needs and created a wondeful, relaxed atmosphere.
second, the food was awesome. the dishes were delicately flavored and the selection which the chef had prepared was fabulous.
lastly, the quantity of food was just right and at the end of the meal, i didnt think either of us could have eaten a single additional morsel of food.
we had a wonderful time and are definitely going back again.

This restaurant is amazing. I went there a few days ago with my family to celebrate a birthday, and it was definitely a night to remember. The staff is very attentive to you...there are about 4-5 people checking on you at all times. And the food---to die for! We tried to rank our favorites (1-12) and it was nearly impossible. Each dish was amazing in its own way, and served in beautiful layouts with cute garnishes.
I would definitely go back! Splurge for a special occasion here... it's worth every cent!!

The latest review before mine almost made me forego this excellent gem of a restaurant. What made me change my mind was that this restaurant was in the New York times best seller "1000 place to go before you die". I certainly think I got what I paid for. " FINE DINING" The courses of food from the appetizers to the entre's were extremely delicious the atmosphere quiet and romantic a great place for a special occasion or in my case our anniversary. I liked the extra touch the new manager had in making sure we were having a good time. 2.5 hours too short. Give this restaurant a try, I highly recommend it.

My husband and I were somewhat disappointed. When we read another members review about it being a "Once in a lifetime experience," we realized the reviewer wasn't kidding. The food is good, except it wasn't exceptional, at least not for the price and the portions. Many of the appetizers, main entrees, and even the desert were no bigger than a teaspoon! We felt more like we were being teased and we were left feeling empty in stomach, wallet, and in our expectations. I agree that Chicago has much more to offer that can excite your senses and taste buds at a more reasonable price. Needless to say, for us it was a once in a lifetime experience.

Don't expect to find the typical thai food that you'd expect at your local thai restaurant. The 12 course meal allows you to sample real thai food thats presented in a spectacular fashion. The service is good since its a tiny restaurant and you can spend your entire evening there without being rushed to finish your meal. The price is a high for the portions you're getting. If you're a heavy eater, expect to be hungry in a few hours. For such a nice restaurant, its located in a bad neighborhood. Just to warn you, it is very expensive. At least $200 per couple so try it once in your life is good enough.

We went to Arun's with high expectations, but left sorely disappointed and with a lot less cash in our pockets. We felt as if we were at a large banquet--the food did not seem prepared to order, but rather waiting in the kitchen (like the chunks of over-cooked beef in the otherwise good curry). We felt rushed and disoriented as dishes were thrown out at us with hardly a minute of rest in between and we never saw a menu or any sort of description of what we were eating. In short, save your cash (our meal for two with a bottle of wine was $300) for a place that will make creative dishes to order w/fresh ingredients, rather than a place that seems to be resting on an old reputation.

This is one of the best Thai food restaurants in the world. (I've been to Thailand several times and this is as good as it gets). Don't be put off by the neighborhood, the ambiance and service are excellent. The dishes are well presented and bear the signature of the chef/owner. They do have a set menu to choose from (the less expensive choice) and this allows you to experience many of the dishes. I liked their version of the Tom Yum seafood soup and the green coconut curry (your choice of meat or seafood). The deep fried Red Snapper (really perch - but every restaurant calls it Snapper) is excellent as an accompaniment or as a main dish. You can make a meal out of the appetizers alone - just watch out for the prices!!

So disappointed! While the presentation undoubtedly excelled, the buck stops there. Unfortunately there is only so much dressing up you can do to a friend wonton or bowl of soup... in the end, it's still cheap food. At Arun's there is no culinary genius... no revolutionary spin on your ordinary thai... and no justification for spending that ungodly amount when there is so much else Chicago has to offer.

This place is great for special occassions for couples and large groups - the pre-fixe menu is one of the best I've had. Each bite transcended my taste buds to a higher level of "heavenly cuisine." It was an ecstatic experience.

I had the pleasure of reviewing Arun's for an episode of the local TV show, "Check, Please!".
It was an incredible experience and I totally recommend the place. If you love Thai...get ready for a totally authentic Thai experience. I do agreed that I was a little floored by the price, but when you think that you are having 12 courses, you get over it.

Arun's was fantastic. My wife and I went there for our anniversary. The flavor from each appetizer lingered for the 5 minutes or so between each course - and each flavor was so different. The entrees were great. Service was prompt, friendly and not pretentious. The amount of food was perfect for the entire meal. I did not leave stuffed, nor hungry - just completely satisfied. I only have two issues with Arun's - [1] price (the meal is awfully expensive, toping out at $300 for two with a $60 bottle incl. tax & tip) and [2] parking (a restaurant of this stature needs valet - get there early so you can find a spot on the street) Notwithstanding the last comments, this was probably one of the most interesting and best meals of my life. I highly reccommend it. Have fun - but bring a thick wallet.

This is an incredible dining experience...don't be discouraged by the neighborhood or exterior of the building. The food is exquisite and the service impeccable with full descriptions of everything you're eating. The portions are small but there are so many that you leave stuffed if you eat it all! Beautiful atmosphere without the stuffiness.
Go.

Arun's is certainly worthy of a perfect 10 rating. The food is both delicious and aesthetically pleasing and the service is second to none. For example, the servers replace your eating utensils after every course (which amounts to 11 times) and they make sure to keep your cups full at all times. Although Arun's is located in a questionable neighborhood, I wholeheartedly recommend it, for it is an unparalleled dining experience once you get inside the Thai haven.
