Nicely spiced thai food. Pleasant atmosphere and they helped me rainproof my wallet and phone to walk back to our hotel through the storm. Only complaint is that thai fruit dessert was canned fruit salad and this was specified. Brownie dessert was good

I treated a friend to supper. She likes this place because she orders the same two dishes and it is bland and predictable. I tried a number of dishes and in the end of a carb heavy little meat in the food experience paid $70. The waitress seemed unable to get bills prepared properly. The place was busy and a... More

Our party of 4 adults thought we would give this place a try. It took nearly 1.5 hours to get our mediocre thai food. The service was terrible and it was not busy. All 4 of us felt sick after eating there and regretted it. My advice is to avoid it.

After a long road trip we were looking for a restaurant open late. It was after 9 p.m. Sign was "open"in the window so we drove in parking lot. A gentleman in his car said he thought they were closed but he would check. He stuck his head out to say yes they were closed . We were backing out... More

The food was average quality, and presentation. Nothing special, but it was definitely edible. The appetizers were pretty much fried and limited in selection. The main dishes were also just average.

We stop here whenever we have time in Penticton. The food is delicious and so fresh. Service can be slow sometimes but that means they are busy - which is a good thing!

It was a pleasant experience, a rare find here...a restaurant that has some ambience! Service was quick, server very pleasant and smiling. Food (we both had a curry and appetizer) fresh and tasty. The menu seems to include more or less the same vegetables and meats for each dish, which helps to ensure consistent quality. And perfect for the no-red-meat... More

Another trip to Penticton, another dinner at Iyara. Sometimes it's busy enough service slows down but it's dinner and I don't like being rushed, that's what McDonald's is for. (Not putting down McDonald's)

Had lunch here while staying in Penticton. The service was good and the food average. I love salad rolls and eat them whenever I'm in a Thai restaurant. The ones here were expensive and not very good, unfortunately. Very loosely rolled and had hard boiled egg instead of shrimp. I knew this when I ordered and thought they'd be ok... More
