Word has spread that Aroy-D Thai in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs is cooking up some of the area’s freshest Thai dishes. With chefs hailing from Thailand, Aroy-D on Ringwood North’s Warrandyte Road stays true to tradition, utilising fresh ingredients and high-quality imported products without adding artificial colourings or flavours. Let the restaurant’s friendly waitrons suggest their favourite dishes if you can’t decide – they’re as passionate about Thai cuisine as the chefs in the kitchen.
Aroy-D is a standout among Melbourne’s many Thai restaurants, in particular because of its low-key feel, fresh taste and reasonable prices. While all of the dishes on offer taste excellent, we recommend going for one of the Thai charcoal grills like the gai yang (barbequed chicken marinated in soy, coriander roots, garlic and turmeric) or Thai roast duck topped with a special sauce and served with salad. Seafood is done especially well here – try the pla sam rod (deep fried fish in a sweet tangy chilli sauce and Thai basil) with your choice of rockling fillet or whole barramundi. Vegetarians also have plenty of options – the chefs will gladly substitute meat with vegetables in most of the dishes.
Lovely authentic Thai food and service. Well priced and generous size servings. Great Thai beer. The owner and family staff are courteous and professional with their service and attention.
A consistently wonderful local gem. The menu is extensive and our food was fresh and tasty. The friendly and helpful staff add to the positive dining experience.
Really enjoyed again eating at this place, food is superb and the variety is amazing, there’s unlimited choice of curries, which are always our favourite.
