Best Food Around! – My first recommendation for local restaurants is Ayara!
I love thai food and I have never tasted better. Best Food around!
The only problem i have with this place is its TOO GOOD! During the peak meal hours there's a wait list but so far I haven't waited more than 15mins.
Yes the staff are moving fast...they have too!
And they still keep the prices reasonable.
Great Thai Food – Okay, so I've eaten at quite a lot of Thai restaurants and none of them ever taste the same. I'll admit that I haven't tried Thai Dishes right next door, but Ayara gives me no reason to.
The first time I discovered this place in the corner of nowhere, I was like wow, there are things that exist in this corner? And then when I ate at Ayara, I thought, wow... there are places in this corner that taste this good?!
The only thing that I can really say is that their pineapple fried rice is sometimes off, where it's really watery, but other times it's perfect. I don't know about you, but pineapple fried rice not being mushy is kind of a big deal to me.
Everything else I've tried on the menu is pretty awesome though. I would probably eat here every week if I could. Food is prepared nicely, clean, and average prices for getting clean/good service.
LA's best Thai food hands down – Drunken noodles with beef is all you need. Delivery is great. Very nice and accomdating staff.
Ammmmazzzzing – I LLLLLoooveeee this place. Get the pad see ew or drunken noodles!! It tis quite good!! They have the best thai food in los angeles and they do take out !!
Good food, horrible service every single time! – I'm disappointed that every time I dine here, the service is horrible. The only reason I keep going back is because the food is good. One time I got my food when everyone in my party had finished eating. The last time I went there, the server put 6 glasses of water next to me and asked me to pass it around and was unhappy about it when I gave her a "this is not my job" look. And the food always took forever to come out even when they are not busy. If you have an hour for lunch, dont' go there.
Whaaaat happened??? – I haven't been here in a long time but last I remembered the food and the service was great.
Tonight my friend and I walked in with out a reservation and we were seated in 10 minutes or less, at a crappy table al the way in the back with air condition blowing on top of our heads. Our original waitress, quickly came
to take our order but I wanted to see the wine list since I couldn't understand what she was saying, which she couldn't understand what I was saying. After placing the order of Pino Grigio, she informs me they don't have the one I wanted, fair enough, ordered Chardonnay. 10 min goes by no wine, 20 min no wine. I thought she forgot then comes back and asks if I wanted a red wine or a white wine, are you serious????
"A Chardonnay, it's White" I had to snap. Then another 5 min., the wine glasses comes and but no wine, 2 min later a different waitress comes holding a bottle comes wondering and I had to say "I think that's ours".
Then shortly our food comes LARB (beef) and the SEAFOOD SOUP both good not great. Another waitress offered us to switch tables and we did to a much better seating. Then after another 15 our other two orders came which were the GREEN CURRY (pork) and the PAD THAI (regular) which were okay as well.
I don't really know what the problem was but it was just impossible for them to get the food out in a timely manner. I was also just super annoyed at our original waitress.
I have a high tolerance for these kinds of things and in most cases I let small things slide and always leave a normal tip (20%) but this was just bad and it was even hard for me to leave (10%).
Best Thai food ever – I love this place, I get food from here atleast once a week, my favorites are pad see-eew, the drunken noodles, the veggie soup, and ayara fried rice. They make such amazing food, seriously you have to try it. Great for vegetarians!!
Decent but not great Thai food – Food was much better when I started eating here two years ago. Now, portions are smaller and the vegetables in the Thai Garden are overcooked. The Ruby Curry is now mostly gravy with very litte meat or eggplant. The chicken wing appetizer is pretty tasty. Service here can be iffy. Sometimes the server will argue with you if you tell them they got the order is wrong. Service can be very slow and you wonder if they forgot about you.
Quite impressed! – I am so excited to share this with you! My experience was great, and the food is excellent. Not only are their lunch specials cheap and generous, but the food is authentic and delicious! Fresh ingredients! This is a cute hidden gem that everyone should know about.
Pretty Good for Delivery – I was feeling lazy so decided to order from here. I had the standard pad thai and my friend had the drunken noodle. It was pretty good but since I had better thai food I can only give it a three. Maybe it would have been better if I had eaten there.
