I have been in NYC for almost 8 years and eaten at Jaya, Pongsri downtown (still consistent), Sea, the fusion places, etc etc. To me this may be the best, most authentic thai food for the price. You may be able to get a more 'refined' thai food experience somewhere else but for my money Amarin is amazing. Nuance of taste for a small, family run place. Waaaayyy better then Sea, which is watered down thai food. Lets put it this wat, I have ordered the same thing for lunch and dinner on the same day. And its BYOB.

I've eaten a lot of Thai in this city and the food from Amarin is the best. In addition, I order and it often arrives in under 15 minutes and the prices are reasonable. There have been times I ordered five times in a week. In addition, I have a friend who's been to Thailand twice and he says they serve the best pad thai he's ever had outside of Thailand. The place itself is kind of a dive—I wouldn't eat there (for good food and ambiance, go to SEA), but for delivery there's no comparison.

I am certainly glad that Amarin was so cheap, because the food was poor. We ordered super tiny spring rolls, less than mediocre crab wontons, and the Amarin fried rice with very suspicious tasting "beef". The best was the steamed dumplings. They were very good, but I can make much better at home and I will in the future instead of ordering from Amarin.

Well honestly I have never had anything here besides the pad see ew, but it is the most amazing dish in the whole city. I have tried pad see ew at many other places in NYC (at least 10) just to see if anyone else can make it better, but they always pale in comparison to Amarin. Their service is consistently on time and their prices are great. Try the pad see ew! You won't be disappointed.

Whenever I leave this place, I feel like a genius for having eaten there again. It is cheap and delicious and the entire staff is lovely. I suppose the atmosphere may be lacking, but I'd take the coziness over the hoopla of Sea or Planet Thailand just about any day.

Amarin has delicious food, including a long list of daily specials, plus it is BYOB. If you're in the mood for a cheap date that doesn't taste cheap, Amarin is your man. It's a smallish spot, but the artwork by locals will give you something to chat about.

Amarin Cafe has become a stop for me on a weekly basis. Great food and for an affordable price. I like checking out the new artwork but I usually get it to go. I suggest the Tofu Pad Thai...good stuff, with a little kick
