In addition to tapestries and gold statuary, the owners of Amarind's decorate the dining room with awards. Over the years, Chicago Magazine has supplied the Thai hotspot with a steady stream of compliments, including a feature that ranked it as the hub of one of Chicago's best dishes. Metromix stands in consensus with Chicago Magazine, Chicago Reader, and Time Out Chicago with its observation that Amarind's "serves familiar dishes, but of a quality you won't find at your corner noodle stand." Michelin recommends chive dumplings and spicy grilled pork loin, noting that "if you like things spicy, ask your server to alert the kitchen." Amarind's menu covers lunch, dinner, and desserts such as yucca potato custard with fresh coconut flakes.
