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.

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

When I visit New York , I always make a stop here! The food is sooo good !!! With the vast amount of restaurants in NYC, it is hard to choose from. Jaiya will not disappoint you. The service is impeccable . See you there!

Great restaurant with excellent THAI food. Must go . Try the volcano ice cream. Red curry is nice. Druken noodles are worth it.
