We ordered different dishes and shared among us. The portions are nice and the food is tasty, not really hot, and interesting. The service is a bit cold but professional. The only "but" I found was that it has very bad lighting, it might help with the ambiance, but at our table some were eating practically without seeing their plates... More

We tried so many things here and were pleased with everything. I will tell you that I can take spicy food, but the medium was almost too hot for me. Mild was surprisingly hot! Excellent service, great ambience. This is my second time here. The last time we came to Manhattan, we ate here and I just had to come... More

Went here on a Sun nite. Good food, nice portions and good looking space. Very tasty and interesting, But service was a bit slow and the water warm, no ice. Altogether, good place in the neighborhood.

We have been going to Jaiya for over 20 years and have never had a bad meal. The food is great and full of great flavors. However, the only issue many of my friends and family have encountered lately is the service. While some of the servers are friendly and kind there are others that should not be attending to... More

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
