We ordered delivery from Amarin and were very disappointed. The Som Tom (papaya salad) was extremely bland - no fish sauce and no heat at all (even though we requested it spicy) The Tom Yum was watery, also bland lacking any of the normal flavors in Tom Yum soup. The Pad See Ew tasted as if the only seasoning was a dash of soy. Bland. And, rather than Chinese broccoli the dish had 3 florets of tough American broccoli. Really? Is it that hard to get the real thing? The chicken ka pow was overly sweet and ruined by bell peppers that dominated the dish. We were dejected and will never order from them again. We were hoping for half-authentic based on reviews here but got Thai worse than we could make ourselves.

Rarely have an issue with them. Curry is very very good.

I love everything I've ever ordered from this place, and if you like your food hot, this is your place. I've never had a restaurant ask me if I wanted my pad thai spicy. That's commitment. And ya, it was mind alteringly hot. They do warn you, "it's real thai spicy, ok?"

I don't know about you, but I'm over feeling like I'm walking into a techno rave every time I feel like eating in a Thai restaurant. This place is the real deal.

We saw all the good reviews on the website so we ordered from this place. I (my girlfriend's boyfriend) got the vegetable curry, which was passable, not great red curry, but edible. My girlfriend got the pad thai with tofu and it was NASSSSTY. It tasted like fish cut into fine strips, salted, and disguised as noodle. Plus, it was buried beneath a forest of bean sprouts. Speaking of bean sprouts, we also ordered some of the fresh spring rolls, which were comprised entirely of the aforementioned ingredient. My girlfriend hated them. I thought they were not very good. I offered my girlfriend some of my red curry so she basically ended up having rice with red curry sauce for dinner, which was better than the pad thai.

I have been ordering from Amarin since I moved to Greenpoint 8 years ago. I think of the dozens of times I've ordered there have been maybe 3 times I've been disappointed. The food is not 100% consistent but I'd say it's at least 75% consistent, which is pretty impressive for an 8 year run. The pad thai is generally great, the green curry and the pad see yew (sp??) are delicious - the mashed potatos are - oddly - really really good! I've relied on Amarin and I'm very glad they're in the neighborhood. Highly recommended.
