Chicago: Arun Thai Restaurant
I ate at Arun a year and a half ago on a business
trip. The food is very good (although I've had
better); I think what has made its reputation is the
nouvelle treatment they give the food (nice
presentation). Unfortunately, the portions are very
small, especially considering the price. We tried to
order several dishes and share among three people, but
there really wasn't enough food to go around.
Last word of advice; if you're going by cab, find a
cabbie that knows their way around chicago. It's kind
of out there, and ours got lost several times en route.
