We visited for cocktails a couple of nights and always had great service and there was always a fun relaxed atmosphere. Would definitely go back
I went here recently for a birthday meal with a large group. The staff were incredibly accommodating and polite. The service was absolutely impeccable from start to finish. The food was very good quality and is very reasonably priced. The interior is smart and sophisticated. I can't fault this place and would recommend it to anyone! Great for anyone who wants a good meal without having to spend a lot of money.
Thai food but not as we know it...
Time for Thai food with a positive twist. Ayuthaiya at 35 Hollywood Road Central is a welcome addition along a familiar stretch of divine dinning venues. My guest and I decided on something different for a change, wanting an escape from the same old same old but yet still close to home (or at least staggering distance.)
Ayuthaiya is the Aqua’s group latest venture in Soho, from a décor point it is a genuine and successful attempt at re creating the feel of a Thai timber residence; more than that, they have a Thai Chef in house and on site so you can be assured of quality. Any new Restaurant is faced with several key challenges – Ambiance, service and food quality. One which Ayuthaiya, I am pleased to say has all under control. From a very professional yet friendly and welcoming arrival, to prompt and pleasant service throughout. They have made the most of a small 2 level area seating around 40 persons. While the location is good it always irks me that these places leave the front doors entirely pulled open, okay if you have a calm ocean view perhaps, but not so if it faces a busy, noisy polluted main street. So it’s a tepid attempt at al fresco, but thankfully the rear tables provide some relief to this and if one wants seclusion and bit of quiet then there is always the upstairs, so this place has created something for everyone.
Now for the twist in the tale of Thai food. It is Thai Tapas at its very best. We enjoyed Mixed Satay of beef, chicken and pork with an excellent sauce to match. Prawn Cakes, tasty and crispy if with just a touch too much oil residue. The chicken Pandan being one the best I have tasted outside of Thailand (and I have lived there on two occasions). This left the final course to be the Pièce de résistance … the Soft shell Crab mango and avocado rolls. Summed up they are to die for! If I ever have a final meal request then this would be it. Subtle tang with ginger overtones blended perfectly with mango pieces and jus. This all consumed with copious amounts of house Merlot that all went down very well indeed.
Overall for the atmosphere, service, food and price, this place is way up there and a great place to go for Thai food with a twist.
We started going to Ayuthaiya for lunch on weekdays (for HKD$88 per person) shortly after it opened in February 2010, and we've been going back there ever since. A few days ago, we went for dinner, and, for the first time, sat upstairs. The food was excellent, the service punctilious. The manager even recognized us, even though we had been away from Hong Kong for six months. We are not surprised that Ayuthaiya was ranked the No. 1 Thai restaurant by the "Hong Kong Tatler". Recommended.
