First time for sushi and it was amazing! I tried lots of new stuff for my birthday and had a fantastic time there! I highly recommend it.

This is some of the best Thai food I've ever eaten, and I've eaten in Thailand! Many dishes are very authentic and everything on the menu that I have ordered has been exceptional. One of the owners is Thai and probably brings the Thai touch to all the dishes. Even the non-traditional dishes are very good. We've occasionally had some... More

Indeed, in the cool pines of Arizona's Rim Country can be found many things, but delicious Thai food isn't what you'd expect! It is however, what you'll find. The service is excellent and the food excellent. We have found it a bit on the pricy side, but in the trade off between taste and price, taste wins at the Ayothaya.... More

Have eaten here many times, and food is always consistently good; I love the Drunken Noodles because this noodle dish has a little 'kick' to it.

Do not waste your time or money on stopping at this restaurant, the food was terrible, the place lacked everything from authenticity to atmosphere. The service was acceptable but the volcano chicken was TASTELESS like it was boiled the day before in plain water. We could not eat it and would not take it home, when we explained that it... More

Not sure what we would find in Payson, we were pleasantly surprised by our lovely meal at Ayothaya. From the moment we entered the staff were attentive and friendly. Food was delicious, so much so we ordered far too much with a delicious mixed sample platter between us $12, followed by a thai curry $10 & Noodle dish $10. It... More

We had the benefit of being there and meeting the staff early upon opening. The food was excellent and atmosphere was very good.

First time we tried it on our way from Show Low to Phoenix. The food is fantastic! Service was good and the pricing is also good. Everything was clean, even the restrooms. We were so impressed we even stopped again on our way home! This will definitely be one of our stops when driving through Payson!

This is a bright spot for food in Payson. I always order Green Curry Chicken dishes and have never been disappointed. However... the service is terrible: slow to take orders, slow to deliver drinks, slow to respond to requests, slow to deliver the check and slow to take payments. They've been open for several years now and can't seem to... More

Thought we would try this place out because of the good reviews. But how disappointed we were. The wait staff was horrible. Had to ask 6 times for water refills. Thought maybe they had to kill the chicken to be able to make the broth for the balloon soup we had, because it took so long. The soup was just... More
