Since 1985, Arun’s remains Chicago's destination Thai restaurant centered around fresh flavors and enticing texures, the walls covered with Thai murals painted by chef Arun Sampanthavivat’s brother. At this four diamond-rated restaurant that Wolfgang Puck has described as “probably the best Thai restaurant in the country,” upscale tasting menus and shared plates continue to draw diners to Albany Park.
