“Best Green Thai Curry!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

I have always enjoyed eating in Iyara and food is always exceptional.
Owner is always there to welcome you and Green Curry is best one I've ever tasted!
Many people come for takeaways too. Highly recommended and I'm delighted that it's been voted as #1 Thai restaurant in London - definitely deserves to be!!

“Okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013 via mobile

Nothing special food was okay but something was missing about this place, maybe atmosphere. It was Wimbledon week the place should have been buzzing just 1 member of staff serving us & clientele were all somber.

“Amazing Thai food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

After a long, hot day on Centre Court, Wimbledon, a quick bit of research and read of the reviews on Trip Advisor resulted in my partner and I deciding to eat at Yara. Being a Saturday evening I thought we would be lucky to get a table but not so - the restaurant is away from the village and the centre of Wimbledon and fortunately was able to accommodate my partner and I and at short notice. The owner helpfully explained that there was plenty of parking on nearby roads because restrictions were suspended at 6.30pm. The restaurant is quite small and intimate with a competitively priced menu offering a good choice of typical dishes. All of the dishes were beautifully presented. We had the deep fried prawns and duck spring rolls for starter, both of which were delicious, followed by the green papaya salad and lamb masaman curry. I have had the masaman curry many many times in Thailand and this was as good as if not better than on those occasions. Amazing flavours, freshly prepared food and great presentation - all you could ask for. The owner was the only person waiting so service was a little slow but it was well worth the wait. The only minor criticism is that the restaurant was incredibly hot - this was one of the hottest days of the year (so far) and because the restaurant is on a main road it wasn't possible to keep the main entrance door open. The small Dimplex fan above the door didn't seem to be doing much. We heard the owner talking about getting a new fan the following day and so this shouldn't be an issue for those rare hot summer nights. If we manage to secure tickets for the tennis again next year we will most certainly be returning. Well worth a visit - you will not be disappointed.

“Perfection!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

We went to iyara last night for dinner. We frequently have takeaway meals from iyara and it is always fantastic. The food is always delicious and the service when eating at the restaurant was excellent-we didn't feel rushed at all. Highly recommended!

“A Great Surprise Awaits you”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

I have been going to the restaurant since the opening and have always found the owner welcoming, friendly and very helpful when especially when are not sure of what to order, having tried more or less most of the dishes favourite is the fish dishes

Décor good not over done, its small but cosy would recommend to all friends, the only downside wine on the pricey side
