While the setting of this restaurant is a dramatic contrast to most Thai eateries, it's location within the otherwise sterile Life Center building says nothing of Ariya Organic Place at all. It's beautifully clean, features funky and innovative decor, and offers a creative and exciting menu. Many smoothie combinations are available and as God intended the smoothie, there is no water or ice added. Just fruits and veggies! Their signature Raw Pad Thai was phenomenal, even if it bore little resemblance to standard Pad Thai. As a dish, regardless of name, it was fantastic.
Beware when ordering smoothies with ginger... It can almost seem like an experiment in human ginger tolerance rather than simply a flavour. If you love ginger (and I mean LOVE), you needn't worry. Otherwise, it may be worth asking for just a dash...
It feels like a mall food court, albeit a quieter and classier one than most North Americans may be used to, but I promise that this restaurant delivers. The food is FRESH, RAW, and full of FLAVOUR.
Warning: the prices are ASTRONOMICAL by Thai standards. Most entrées are between 250~300฿, smoothies around 200฿, and dessert comes in around 300฿ as well. These prices are on the high end even in Europe and the US, but if you are willing to treat yourself, it's worth it.Pros: Creative Menu, Raw and Organic, Delicious
