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.

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

Everything was great. Service was warm friendly and quick, prices were reasonable for the quailty and the food was the best Thai food i have ever had, and I have it often. The decor is lovely even if the place is a bit tight. I ordered a green salad with traditional peanut dressing to start, and the seered garlic prawns,... More

Of all the Thai restaurants I have eaten in all over the world, including Thailand, Jaiya is HANDS DOWN the absolute BEST! I am not exaggerating. I've... More

Had dinner here last night. We were 4 people. The prices were in line for an upper east side restaurant . We started with appetizers.The grilled flank steak, curry puffs,mee-krob(crunchy rice noodles) and grilled eggplant all got a high passing grade. The squid was very chewy and not to our liking. For our entrees we shared the whole fish, the... More
