Don't let the location or mini mall distract you. The food and more importantly presentation is amazing. The service is also quick and attentive. Take out also available. Reservations suggested for dine-in.

I was here with a colleague who picked the place to celebrate our collaboration. A very cold evening so we moved from a table by the window to one in the middle of the restaurant. I had soup and we shared a main course since the portions are really generous. Very friendly staff, tasty food with the unique combination of... More

This was my first visit, I picked up green and red curry dishes and some summer rolls, and all were exceptionally delicious! I wish we had eaten there, as the place is beautiful, and the service was wonderful. I will go back and will recommend.

On a recent visit to Ottawa, I ate at Aiyara several times and was impressed by the quality of the food. The ambiance is nice; however the restaurant is a little on the small side. On each of my visits the restaurant was busy - a good sign of a quality restaurant. Presentation was nice with fancy garnishes with each... More

The food was delicious, service very nice and the decorative tea set simply cute. The prices are really reasonable. I highly recommend this place.

My husband and I love Thai food. So we like to try different restaurants. We went Aiyara with high expectation due to the high recommendation from this website. The interior is good, but the space of seats and table is narrow. I'm very tiny, the space is still not comfortable for me. About the food. It's our first time to... More

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.
