There’s a reason why there’s a line out the door of this small Federal Hill restaurant most weekend nights. Baltimore has plenty of good Thai restaurants, so there’s no need to wait in line unless there’s something really special being offered. Thai Arroy is definitely worth the wait. The menu is pleasantly diverse, with curries, soups, salads, noodle dishes, and whole fish all in authentic preparations. We are particular fans of the drunken noodles and the “Mr. Green,” a saut?ed veggie and seafood dish made with chili paste. Thai Arroy can definitely bring the heat, but it’s the flavor that really packs a punch. And the restaurant is BYOB, which keeps the check affordable.
