“Transported to Bankok”
Reviewed December 27, 2011

Chai Yo is fast becoming the standard to which all Thai restaurants are being judged. They have innovative and affordable specials and their food is beyond reproach. Nothing is too much for the chef(s) who accommodate requests without flinching.

We stopped in for a quick curry and were not disappointed. We shared three dishes with rice and noodles and they were all wonderful.
