Clean tasty food

This small place is a gem. Tastefully decorated, this Thai restaurant is elegant and ethnic at the same time. Good Thai food. Not greasy.

I loved my dish (although medium spice in this place is extra extra hott in my book). My sister however did not like her dish and told the waitress and she did not give her any option other than to pay for another dish. I have never heard this from any other restaurant before. Naturally, I was put off by... More

We stopped by during the lunch time special (11am to 3 pm) and had a wonderful lunch. The spring rolls were served, cut in half, in a bowl with the sauce included. Heavenly! Had I know they were this good, I would have ordered a whole plate of them. I had the Chicken Pad Thai and it was excellent. Fresh... More

We were treated very well and the service was efficient and attentative. Food was tasty and pricing was absolutely decent. We were pleasently surprised by the combination of quality and pricing. The aircon was too low, but they actually adjusted it when we asked for it.

Simply the best, every dish is amazing, but the best of the best is here. The service food and everything is just way out of control. Thinking Jaya, makes me salivate.

Hi folks. So last night I returned there for the second time Because the first time was good. Unfortunately, my girlfriend found a hair after her second tasting of the pat thai noodles. It was disgusting and disappointing because we like the place. they offered to make another order, but we choose not to, so we just paid for our... More

We came here from a broadway show, as it was within walking distance to our hotel. We didn't have a reservation and it wasn't too busy thankfully. We kept it simple and just ordered mains of a green chicken curry and a beef black pepper stirfry. Couldn't fault either of the dishes or the service. We would come back here... More

Went here after a movie around 9:30 pm and it was crowded but we got seated right away. Tables are close together. The food was really good. We especially enjoyed the papaya salad-very tasty. Spring rolls were very good as were entrees, one shrimp and one chicken with pineapple fried rice. I would definitely go back but a reservation would... More

I highly recommend making reservations if you plan to go to Jaiya Restaurant. The resto has a delicious selection of Thai cuisine that's slightly different from other places I've been so far. The bar area is cozy but the seating is a bit too tight and awkward. Their cocktails aren't also the greatest but everything else rocked! This place is... More
