We picked 5 "must do" restaurants for our trip, and Jaiya Thai wasn't on the list. It was a recommendation from our airbnb host. It was great: The food, the service, and the atmosphere. On our next visit this will be our first stop.

Our first visit to New York therefore our first visit to this restaurant. We visited this restaurant at the recommendation of my daughters friend and have since become a renewed fan of Thai food. The restaurant itself is fairly compact in size but the seating is arranged well without being claustrophobic in any way. Service was good, not pushy or... More

Great Thai food. Service is OK but food deserved 6 Stars so I gave it 5 Stars. Good for any occasion either with family or for a date.

I've been going to jaiya Thai over ten years at different locations, getting a lot of take out. I recently went to this location and had the worst service. We walked in with a group of 7 and asked for a table away from the door (the one they were offering us) and the waitress gave us a glared at... More

My 20 something kids took me here for a late dinner on a cold Wednesday night March. At 9 PM the restaurant was packed. The menu had something for everyone even if you don't eat Thai cuisine often. The restaurant is small and the lights are low. The tables are small and very close together, but this didn't materially impact... More

We loved the restaurant when we visited it several years ago. We went there again and again as we loved the food. It went on fine then we started noticing a difference in the quantity and the prices. Portions started to become smaller and the bill started to become bigger. As much as during our last lunch between 3 of... More

Excellent Thai food! A lot of people know Jaiya Thai for their spicy food but the food is very flavorful even if you go with a lower level of spice. Nice decor too.

I placed a reservation for Jaiya, and on arrival, mentioned this. They did not acknowledge our booking or ask my name, and just seated us as people off the street. We were seen for drinks swiftly, and decided our orders quickly. The food came so fast! My beef penang main was amazing I have to say. Overall great value for... More

This place has the best thai food in NYC. It does get a little packed but the food is definitely worth it.

We have been going to Jaiya Thai since the 90s and have never had a bad meal. Each meal leaves us craving for our next visit. If you're in NYC and love Thai you must visit Jaiya Thai. If you don't like spicy be sure to order mild.
