Had been recommended as an great Thai restaurant by a friend and he was totally right, the food was tremendous, family tried some of different appetizers and said they were the best they had ever had. Great place to go, very affordable. Traditional Thai Food

This restaurant located in The Yard on McCullough was a very pleasant surprise to start 2016. First, it is QUIET without loud music. Second the restaurant is tastefully decorated. Third, the food we had for dinner was very good. We started with the Thai Dumplings--five came with the order and were very tasty.Thai and other beers are available. The green... More

On a high note, the service was good. I ordered the spicy green curry which the menu denotes is a spicy dish...the reality was no flavor or spice and the vegetables were very overcooked. I even asked that they make it as spicy as possible and there was absolutely no spice. Perhaps there are other dishes that would be worth... More

This neat restaurant is a little bit off the beaten path but was very nice inside. Vanessa, our server was very helpful. Their hot and sour soup was the best I've had. It was loaded with fresh veggies and soy cubes. The hot flavor was just enough not to overwhelm and the combination of flavors was great. The Pad Thai... More

Had the cheese rolls and fresh rolls for appetizers. Split three ways very nicely. Entree choices: chicken pad Thai, pineapple fried rice, and green curry noodles. All came piping hot, nicely spiced, very attractively plated. Huge portions so thought the prices were very reasonable. (Would rate it $$, not $$$$.) Server was very attentive and pleasant. Would definitely return.

I purchased a Deal of the Day restaurant certificate thinking I would get a chance to try some good Thai food at a restaurant I had not been to before. It turned out that I was not available to use the certificate by the end of the expiration date. So, I figure a restaurant that has elected to garner some... More

Since we started coming to Yaya's Thai Restaurant two years ago, my friends and I have NEVER been disappointed with the quality of food, atmosphere, and service. In fact, that's why we keep coming back every week! My personal favorite is the Chicken Pad See Ew, which is sauteed fresh noodles with fresh broccoli, carrot, egg, and brown sauce. My... More

A friend and I are making the rounds of Thai restaurants in the city, and I had hopes for Yaya's, since I had read some favorable reviews. Granted I've only been there once, but I probably won't go back. There are many better Thai options in town. The restaurant is attractive and the service was great, but the food left... More

Everything's good here -- the service, the menu selections, the fantastic food! Once my husband asked for a certain menu item but without sugar in the sauce because he is diabetic, and they made it for him as though they considered it an honor to do so for him. Once when we complimented the food the chef came out to... More

YaYa's Thai Restaurant is in my neighborhood. This was my third time to go there. The other two visits were good, but this was the best. One very good thing about this place: there is no parking problem. It is in "The Yard," a shopping complex. You can usually pull right up to the front door. Another thing: The staff... More
