Even though it's a bit out of the way, the food has the proper flavor and texture of what's acceptable and standard Thai cuisine. Do not go for your standard "pad thai" , "massaman curry" or any other curry for that matter. Go out of your comfort zone and order items that are recommended by staff. You won't be disappointed....

It happens that the chef was sitting next to us and she starts recommending all this great food that at the end was supper delicious. She recommended: Fried dumplings, papaya salad steamed and fried red snapper. And we tried everything she told us. Everything fresh, homemade it really was a great experience.

The staff serving us could not communicate well in English. We ended up with food we had not ordered since they could not help us decipher their menu. The staff hurry you up so they can let in more people. They could not let us finish our food as there was a group of six people waiting outside.

The staff member serving us could not communicate well in English and we ended up having meals which is not what we thought we ordered. The menu though in English is not very clear.

Really good authentic Thai food. cute little cozy restaurant in Queens. not far from the train. And byob if you buy it next door. Great food and they will do very spicy if you want. Hard to find authentic thai spicy anymore. Highly recommended.

I don't normally go stating a restaurant as the best if I really don't feel like it's the best. This Thai restaurant truly is the best in my opinion. Even though we had to wait more than the 20minutes for a table standing outside in the street...it finally took more than 45minutes by the time we sat down. This place... More

We went in for lunch on a Saturday. The place was packed and we had to wait. While e were waiting we were given menus and could order before we sat down so we could avoid a long wait for food. We ordered three main dishes, Pannang Curry duck (the most expensive dish on the menu but well worth the... More

Fairly decent Thai food in a nice space. Service is friendly enough. It's shady. Unfortunately I am finding Ayada Thai to be a little more touristy these days. It's very yelp-esque and has become one of those places that everyone has to try. Hence it's become a parody of itself. A ShriPraThai place. Also I am being put off by... More

Well no doubt their food is better than other Thai restaurant in the area but drunken noodles in a small portion that served was little bit pricey, as well as the other menus in a place like this in Woodside.
