Visited this restaurant for the first time this past weekend. After reading many of the great reviews, I decided that we would give the restaurant a try for my mother's birthday. Our experience reflected many of the reviews. The service was prompt, food presentation was very nice, but flavours seemed to have been lacking, and the portions were a little... More

This is an unassuming restaurant tucked into a small strip mall on Walkley Road in Ottawa. My spouse and I were told that it was worth a try and we were blown away! The service was attentive, the meal was delicious and the presentation was top rate. We'll be back.

You can't beat Aiyara for its lunches. The presentation includes vegetables carved in the animal shapes. You start with a simple, tasty broth. The pad thai is excellent and full of subtle flavours--smokey and sweet and salty and spicy. The yellow curry is another perenial favourite. Add some lemongrass tea, and your lunch is complete.

Don't be deceived by the outside of this restaurant. It might not look like much, but it's definitely worth a visit. The food is consistently delicious, I've been here a few times for lunch & ordered a number of different dishes & it's always been great! The service is friendly, polite & fast! I will be returning...

Amazingly surprise with restaurant. Amongst the purple and gold decor is well trained staff and the freshest thai you would wish for!! Wonderfully obvious that everything was made from scratch and at an unpretentious price. Well done!!

One of the best Thai meals I've ever had! We had Shrimp Salad Rolls as a starter, followed by main courses of Pad Thai, Seafood Coconut Curry and Crispy Duck. Dessert was Tapioca. Every dish was excellent, with unique flavours from the ways we've had them before. The Tapioca was especially unique from the norm, and was outstanding. Service was... More
