This place is superb. Lovely food and great service make this a must visit if in the area. The welcoming glass of tea is a lovely touch. Loved the Green Curry - one of the best I've eaten and the soup was pleasant but for me lacked a little bite. Highly recommended.

I have been coming to Ya Lamai ever since they were in the previous location in the Marais and I have never had a bad meal. In fact, it is so good that it is the place I will always suggest for lunches or dinners with friends. The food is always delicious and the service is excellent. Definitely one of... More

The food was amazing! Authentic! Tasty! And perfect for a cold French winter's day. I had a vegetable green curry and could not get enough! My partner had a beef green curry and was also happy. We had a small entree each, I had a mushroom and lemongrass soup which was so tasty and warm. I can't fault a thing.... More

Nice little place serving boring food to a hip young crowd readily excited about eating in nice little Thai place. Four different dishes all boring. Waitress did not mention specials as they were on a chalkboard out of sight? Wine list concise but good. Figure 20€ with a glass of wine thus the young stylish "it's our second date" crowd.... More

Was surprised by this delicious Thai restaurant where I found the real taste of Thailand which is often not the case in Thai restaurants in Paris. The setting is simple and nice and there were plenty of vegetarian/vegan option. Fresh and flavourful. A great lunch option, better price during the week when there is the lunch special.

We stopped here for lunch and loved the feel of this restaurant. Enjoyed our beef green curry and the special of the day, which was some sort of chicken stir-fry with a fried egg. Had two different rosés, which went perfectly with our slightly spicy meal on this hot day. Would go again.

Truly amazing and authentic Thai food experience. I was recommended to order the "Larmes du Tigre Boeuf" which was exceptional. Would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for some good Thai food.

Ate here three times in ten days. Green curry delicious and delicate flavor. Pad Thai is as good as Bangkok all flavors meld into finely textured feast.

It is close to my house so I eat here regularly, and it is always fresh, full of flavour, and delicious. The ingredients are of good quality, the atmosphere is simple and calm with thai products for sale. I've liked everything I tasted on the menu, but I especially recommend the soups and spicy salads. The food is served quite... More
