This place has one of the better ratings for Thai places in Greenpoint, so we thought we'd try it out. What a mistake! Prices and service are just fine. But the food was not! I'm not sure if I just got the wrong thing or what? I got spicy noodles with chicken-- chicken was fatty and chewy and it wasn't spicy at ALL. My fiance got the pad thai with chicken, he kept saying it wasn't very good. I took a bite and I had to spit it out it was so bad. I will admit that this doesn't seem to be the norm according to these reviews so maybe we just ordered on a bad night? Whatever the case, you could not pay us to go back!

Amarin Cafe has become my every-other-night spot for massaman curry and fried spring rolls. Nothing too adventurous or difficult but it's consistently delicious and the service is always sooo good. None of that low-quality greasy shit that some places try to pass as chicken. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for good Thai in the area.

Great Thai food for cheap! BYOB makes this place a great cheap night out. Watch out for the spicy meals, even if you love spicy food, order the medium. They are serious about their spice!!

No where else is the green papaya salad so spicy, sour and sweet without being greasy. The bean curds with basil is great as is the vegetarian duck entree which is not even on the menu but is always available even for delivery. Veggie duck salad also fab, as is the red curry. Also it's the only Thai restaurant I've heard of that offers "Thai Lemonade" they don't always have it but if they do get it. It's super sour limey tasting ade which they've said to me even has a touch of salt.

The best thai food in the Williamsburg/Greenpoint area. Full of flavor and punch of spices, fresh ingredients (no rubbery squid or crunchless veggies). The fare is priced well. Only downside is the long delivery wait because the place is so busy! But the food always arrives perfect and delicious.

My boyfriend and I order from this place about once a week. They're super nice and even more reliable it typically takes about 25 minutes for the food to arrive. The pad thai is a little bit greasy for my taste (then again, pad thai everywhere tends to be a bit greasy) but my boyfriend loves it. I recommend Bean Curd with Basildelicious! and Vegetable Curry, which is pure spicy coconutty red curry goodness.
