Definitely not the best Thai spot in Ottawa. Maybe in the area but not the best in Ottawa. I came here for lunch and the food was very average. Probably won't come back as there are better places in town. I had the yellow curry for lunch, the price was decent and the curry was decent as well. I also... More

Near Herongate plaza in a mini mall is a little gem of a restaurant for anyone who likes Thai food. I found the atmosphere elegant with nice subdued tones in the furnishings. Not knowing the menu, I was looking at the lunch time items and wanted a green curry dish but wasn't directed to the equivalent dinner menu item; not... More

My family and I always come to AiYara when we crave Thai food. Service is great and friendly, food is always fresh and we are guaranteed to be happy and full by the end of the meal.

Because we don't want to ever grow used to the treat that is Aiyara, we (an office of 6 to 10) are continually trying other places (not always Thai) but inevitably someone (not always me) opines that it would have been better if we had gone to Aiyara. Most of the time, we order from the lunch menu but I've... More

Had a brown beef curry delivered with shrimp wonton and a General Tao's chicken. Something went wrong with the curry - watery and mostly onions with only a couple of small scraps of beef. Like a soup, not a curry at all. The wonton which usually come fresh and crispy in the restaurant seemed like re-heated ones from lunch. The... More

This used to be my favorite restaurant. The food carving, the atmosphere, the service and the food got high mark. The food was authentic Thai, at least for North America standard. However the management seems to change since last year. It is now all new faces on the floor and the service has gone down. The servers are not experience... More
