What was previously my husband's neighborhood go-to spot for years has now become mine as well! This place PACKS the spice so if you can handle it then this is your spot to try out. They take spice seriously and on a scale from 1-10 with 10 being insanely spicy. Generally I order mild-medium spice which runs about 4-5 on... More

This place didn't have an amazing atmosphere, mainly because it was super cold. However the food was delicious and it was great that we could personalize the amount of spice at the table. All appetisers and mains were delicious, and the lava ice cream too!

I dined for the first time at Jaiya Thai on 3rd Avenue. I ordered the shrimp in sweet and sour sauce. The sauce was good. However, the shrimp was lousy, you know the stringy kind of shrimp that you don't expect given the price for it. Perhaps the worst part of the meal was as I was eating the restaurant's... More

Nice atmosphere but you could get better Thai food for half the price basically anywhere else. You're paying for the decor...oh and the rice. You have to pay for rice, lol!

Excellent and very tasty food. Naked shrimp was superb. Be mindful though you do not order spicy or very spicy. Even medium is hot and spicy, but very tasty. We go to Jaiya Thai every time we visit New York, but this time was even more tasty.

I don't know why this restaurant gets some of the reviews listed. Based on other peoples opinions, we went to this restaurant for dinner. In a restaurant that was less than half full, we were all seated on top of each other at the far end of the room. There were 3 employees and they spoke in very loud voices... More

A reasonably priced Thai restaurant in midtown Manhattan. A great menu with many options for whatever your appetite or dietary restrictions. My family enjoyed the atmosphere, the food, and the service.

Suggested by NY native as one of Gramacy Park's best and was not disappointed. After being in Thailand earlier in the year my wife and I fell in love with the food. We started with coconut shrimp appetizer followed by pad Thai and basil and chile from the wok. Both excellent! I asked for the basil and chile to be... More

This is not a hole in the wall Thai but a restaurant with authentic Thai cuisine. It is the second best Thai restaurant I have visited in the US. The best was a substantially more expensive Aruns in Chicago. Opt was mild on heat, their medium is really hot. Naked shrimp, crispy eggplant, and pepper king prawns were particularly good.... More
