Lan is originally of Hakka descent from Southeast China but spent most of his upbringing in Thailand which has greatly influenced his cooking. In addition to cooking in Thailand, he has moved across Europe and onward to Sydney, Australia where he became a head chef at a fine-dining restaurant.

“Best Lemon Chicken”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

Had not been to Thai Arawan in several years, have been twice lately and enjoyed both times. Lunch specials are very reasonable with 1-2 choices of many Chinese classics, choice of rice and eggroll for around $6-7. I decided to try the lemon chicken and thought that it was better than most I've had. The sauce was lemony and not as "sugary/corn starchy" as some. Dinner is a little pricier, but still not bad. I've read before that service is there is hit and miss. Although we didn't have a problem, I can see how that could be the case. The lunch service was great. The dinner service was slower, but aceptable.
Will definitely try the lunch specials again.

“not bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

Food is above average. Wait staff are courteous and easy on the eyes. Close proximity to the interstate makes it easy to get on back on the trip if you are just passing by like we did. Also there are plenty of seating, clean dining area, food was served fast.

“Tail End of Lunch...Not So Good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2013 via mobile

Here I am at 2:15PM. I had a late lunch. Running solo today. This is normally a great place to eat, but today was not. One of my two item lunch was cold and had to send it back to be heated. The other item was mushy as if was old. Kinda felt like eating at a pizza buffett and the buffett was almost over. Tasted good, but still. Service was very good no complaints there. Would I come back? Yes, but closer to noon.

“Flavorful Thai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2013 via mobile

The Thai chicken lettuce wraps are the best I've had. They were extremely flavorful, but maybe a little too salty. The seafood soup had a lot of seafood in it and the broth had good flavor. I will come back to try more dishes. The restaurant was very clean and spacious. It's good for large groups and there's tvs if you want to watch sports. My only complaint is that the waiter wasn't very familiar with the menu and couldn't give me good suggestions/advice. Overall, this is a really good place.
