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.

Consistently delicious Thai food and fine service. You can't really go wrong with anything on the menu.

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

This restaurant is not shy about making dishes as hot and spicy as you can handle. We were 4 and began with the volcanic Tom yum soup with chicken. We ordered it medium (5 on their scale of 10) and it was more like an 8 compared to what we are used to. The two hot and spicy lovers in... More

Living on the upper eastside means I have eaten here for lunch on a number of occasions. Tonight I decided to order take out, I placed my order, it came within 30 minutes. My total order was over $70, however, I paid $17 for a portion of Mussaman Curry. It arrived without any rice!!! I phoned up believing that they... More

Best Thai food ever! We stumbled on this place and it made our evening! It is small but packed with ambience. Excellent service. Food was great. We had the prig king and drunken noodles and the clam fried rice all was cooked to perfection. Drinks we tried were the Thai Zombie and the Pink Orchid. The Pink Orchid was a... More

Having heard a lot about Jaiya Thai, we decided to go for dinner a few days back. The ambiance is very cozy and the staff are efficient and polite. We ordered a Crispy Vegetable Roll, Naked Shrimp and a Pad Thai. The service was very quick - we got our meal in under ten minutes. There are only two words... More

I'd seen ads for this place on tv and in newspapers, and it looked nice, so when I walked by around lunchtime, I decided to give it a try. I ordered sweet and sour chicken from the lunch menu. I didn't see any prices on the lunch menu but it turned out to be $9.95 with brown rice and spring... More
