THe Thai steak is amazing. Perfect for a light meal. Crisp veg, good beef served with rice and a slightly sweet mint/ginger sauce. Beautiful facility and wonderful server. He [Reno] was attentive without being obtrusive.

I lived in Thailand for years and can tell you that this is not real or good Thai food. Panang was very weak and watered down; my wife's meal was missing significant ingredients; my sticky rice must have been days old and was basically not edible. Sorry but don't waste your time. Service is also SLOWWWWWW!!!

This has become our favorite place to eat in Payson. The food is prepared "fresh", so sometimes you have to wait for the main course. Suggest you try the shrimp appetizer - quite good. I like the drunken noodles - loaded with veggies and a great taste. Another favorite is the pasta noodles - with seafood. Big beers are a... More

The cuisine at Aythaya is remarkable. It ranks among the very best Thai food you can get anywhere. Not only does the food taste delicious, it is also beautifully presented. The price is reasonable, with the typical dish around $10. We've eaten there over a dozen times and always consider it a special treat. Visit on Friday or Saturday evenings... More

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
