Outside of Arunee House, two giant signs and a dark-green awning bear the eatery’s MO: to serve up a mix of more than 100 Thai and Chinese dishes. The kitchen staff tosses chicken, pork, beef, or shrimp into six different types of thai curry and mixes chantaboon noodles with chili powder and sprouts to create generous portions of pad thai. Servings of spicy squid prelude the house-special vegetable plate, a cornucopia of snow peas, chinese cabbage, bamboo shoots, black mushrooms, and freshly weaned baby corn. Eaters can augment their meals with glasses of thai iced tea or finish things off with a dessert of sweet sticky rice with mango.

From Chick 'N Chow's tables, which flaunt the rosy crimson hue of a bowl of sweet-and-sour sauce, soups launch warm steam alongside kosher and vegetarian dishes. Entire rotisserie chickens emerge from trips to a fryer with a golden cloak and satisfying crunch, and the menu also cheers dieters with low-calorie steamed dishes topped with broccoli that spells out encouraging affirmations. Beneath a fan painted with a traditional landscape, diners gather to-go containers, and delivery drivers tote bags laden with lo mein and memos from telecommuting fortune cookies.

Le Chine Wok sizzles up an MSG-free spread crowded with spicy Chinese, Thai, and Vietnamese dishes. Fresh and natural ingredients pepper the menu, turning taste bud against taste bud in intense palatal debates between sea-centric plates such as the candied walnut shrimp or spicy soft-shell crab with serrano peppers ($15.95 each). Dishes, such as the basil eggplant chicken ($12.95), send sweet aromas drifting through the dining room, and the boneless smoked duck is prepared over burning tea green-tea leaves to absorb complex flavors and fortune-telling abilities ($16.95).

Liliya China Bistro's comestibles curators craft authentic Mandarin and Korean-Chinese cuisines using fresh ingredients for dinner and lunch. Four vegetable egg rolls make for flavorful starters or hair curlers, paving the way for heartier eats, such as mongolian beef ($12+) or spicy shredded pork soused in hot garlic sauce ($12+). Otherwise, diners can select from the large stock of seafood spreads, noodle dishes, or vegetable-based entrees, which include a spicy mabo bean curd ($12+) and bok choy mushroom ($12+). During afternoons, guests can peruse the cast of savory midday eats, including bulgogi bedecked with marinated chicken ($9.50), beef ($10.50), or pork ($9.50). Or they can opt for a helping of shrimp, which comes to tables performing an aquatic dance within a sea of lobster sauce ($9.25). Each lunch entree arrives at tables equipped with a savory regime of salad, rice, and soup of the day.
