“Unreal Thai food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

My girlfriend and I love going to get Thai food and after reading all of the great reviews of this place we checked it out . As mentioned, it is close to LAX but far enough to not have a hassle with traffic. It's on a cool little street with easy parking. This place does a lot of business both dine in and carry out and understandably why. It is beyond great. This has the best Thai entrees I have ever had. We had the Tom Yum Shrimp Soup and Beef Salad to start. They were both fantastic. The beef was perfectly cooked and tender. Normally, the entrees are hard to surpass the flavor of those.This place has the best entrees. We ordered the Drunken Noodles with Beef and the Ka Pow with Ground Chicken recommended by our server to have it with Ground Chicken. That dish was the greatest dish I have ever had at a Thai Restaurant, hands down. I almost ordered another one to go to eat before I went to bed. The service was good. I will most certainly be back here again. If you are reading this and on the fence about going, go. You won't regret it.

“Great value, really good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012

We were staying at the Travelodge on Century Blvd overnight before flying back east and wanted our last night in CA to be good food. We asked at the front desk about good Thai food, and they gave us the name of a restaurant. They also gave us a list of restaurants their shuttle would drop off and pick up to/from but the Thai name wasn't on it. Ayara was on the list, and after checking with TA, we found the reviews for Ayara were significantly better. That was how we ended up eating here.

The wait staff were brisk, busy, but attentive. Don't expect them to exchange pleasantries here, they are all about getting food to the table, clearing it, and seating the next guests.

We loved everything we ordered - but also watched other diners and saw some lovely dishes pass us by - the Thai bbq chicken looked and smelled divine, as did most of the curry dishes. We love spring rolls, so got the fresh ones not the fried. I asked for the plum sauce, simply because I saw a review on Yelp which mentioned it, but the creamy peanut sauce was very good, as was the plum sauce. I ordered the combination fried rice (beef, pork, shrimp) and my husband ordered the Beef Ruby Curry - mild...........and all the food was simply wonderful, fresh, and full of flavor.

If you like good Thai, you cannot go wrong here, and the prices are very reasonable. We were in and out in under 45 mins on a Tues evening. No line, no wait, and good service, albeit brisk.

Hope you give them a shot - they clearly work hard for the business and are pleasant.

“Really good”

Very good thai cuisine. All curries are fabulous except jungle curry. I wish we had this knowledge ;) If you want it spicy they will make it. Mine was really good. Enjoyed very much.

“Excellent Thai Restaurant near LAX”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

Saw this restaurant at Yelp. Instead of waiting inside LAX with limited choices of food, we decided to look for a place to eat around the area and found Ayara Thai. This place was really close to LAX maybe less than 2 miles. I was craving for Pad Thai and was not disappointed. We also ordered Chicken Sate, Tom Yung Goong, Pad See Ew which we liked. Would eat again here and will definitely recommend.

“Good food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

This is a good restaurant for Thai food. The Pad Thai was done just right, not to spicy or bland. The chicken appatizer with peanut sauce was very good. The manager/owner stopped by the table and asked if we had been there before. When we said no she said let me tell you about our menu. She wient through the menu explaining the food. The food was there in a reaonalbe time and everyone who walked by the table asked if we need anything.
Would definitely recommend this restaurant.
