Arun's is more than a restaurant, it's the full experience. If you reconcile yourself to the fact that it is expensive you'll be much better placed to enjoy it all. We went all-in and had the 12 course menu and it was wonderful. The portions are just sufficient that you get all the taste without rolling out feeling over-stuffed at... More

We had a 10 course fixed menu. Food was very good, but servings were small, especially the main entrees. Wine pours very short. Service was excellent. Overpriced.

This would have to be the most over rated and over priced restaurant I have been to in a long, long time. The minimum price is $75 per head for a 7 course meal---4 appetizers, two mains, and a desert. The food was mediocre at best and the serves were minuscule. The place was deserted on a Friday night so... More

Seated in a private alcove, we spent over two hours savoring each course from the $85 Prix Fixe option. Beginning with the "One Bite Salad" through the two desserts, everything was fabulous. Highly recommended for anyone who loves, and remembers, great dining experiences.

My wife and I love Thai food. We had the seven course tasting menu. We thought it was very good. Great service and good wine list. We would go again.

Hadn't been here in a few years, and was honestly a bit worried by recent reviews. Even more worried by how empty the restaurant seemed to be (disappointing). But the concerns evaporated when the food arrived. Had the 12-course meal, and was delighted that all six appetizers were different from previous times (the main courses were at least 3 the... More

Have been to Arun's multiple times in the past with nothing but top notch service and food. So on Valentine's Day, we went with the same expectations. The food, albeit tasty was WAY OVERPRICED for the quantity that we ordered. Dinner for 2 with one bottle of wine was $425. Too bad. Won't come back.

Arun's has been a north side Chicago staple for perhaps decades. The chef's tasting menu is available in 7 and 11 course versions, but the seven course provides a fully adequate amount of food. The dishes are uniquely presented - so very artfully - and the tastes are heavenly. Each course is presented on an unique plate. The service is... More

We got the 10 course meal which included 5 individual appetizers, 3 family style entrees and 2 deserts We wanted a dining experience where we could enjoy each other's company while savoring our food and got that.

I've been meaning to visit this place for years now, but somehow never got around to it. Well, we finally did last week and I am glad we did. In a few words: - Food: excellent ( no wonder the late Charlie Trotter spoke highly of chef Arun) - Service: excellent - Wine List: very good - Decor/Atmosphere: tired, could... More
