Honestly I wasn't expecting much do to location, boy was I surprised as the food was really good as was the decor. The restaurant was small and parking is a pain, but other than that it's worth the trip. Make sure you try the fried spring rolls and tofu pad thai. Mmmm.

I am a frequent patron of ayada, and after traveling to Thailand recently, I can say this is as close as it gets.

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.

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
