Each dish at Chai Yo, from the Tom Yum Noodles Soup to the Thai egg rolls, exhibits an unparalleled dedication to fresh ingredients with a simple, yet bold taste. Take note, however, that the mild-medium-hot options are skewed toward heat and order one heat level lower than normal.
A cute, neighborhood lunch spot with interesting daily specials and a tiny, shaded patio.
Yellow Curry Chicken was delicious! – Just enjoyed a delightful yellow curry chicken dish. Loved it! The flavor of the coconut milk and spice of the yellow curry were well balanced and the presentation was perfect. I can highly recommend Chai Yo Thai Restaurant.
Cute homey Thai place – Went to Chai Yo for the first time the other day. Menu was extensive, prices were reasonable, and they had a note on the bottom saying that they would cater to strict vegetarians, which is very nice, because some places put fish sauce everywhere and won't make substitutions. We were alone in the restaurant, so it was especially weird that there was no music, which made me feel like I shouldn't talk, it also sounded like someone was walking around on the roof, so the place had a bit of a quiet, cold feeling. My boyfriend always gets Pad Thai with tofu, no eggs, and no fish sauce. Sadly, he gave this one the thumbs down and made a comment about how oily it was, and that the tofu prep wasn't his favorite (he even under-ate at the restaurant ad immediately doctored his leftovers with ketchup & soy sauce when we got home). I ordered the Pumpkin Red Curry with Shrimp, which was quite tasty, but next time I'd get tofu or veggie, so I could share with my hubby. They didn't have hot sauce assortments on the tables, so I had to ask, and our server gave me the choice of oil or powder. All in all, pretty good, and if my boyfriend & I go to Chai Yo again, it will be for curry takeout.
chai yo has good food – this place is right down the street from me. dishes always have plentiful portions. spiciness is catered to the individual's tastes. havent been disappointed by any of the dishes. service is prompt. go early to get good seating.
i dont think they are crazy like the person before me says. why would someone order food by fax? thats dumb and antiquated.
good decent place for lunch – this place is pretty good.. Their pad thai is okay. The people is really nice. I really like their thai iced tea
Strange customer service – We LOOOOVE the food at Chai Yo, but refuse to go there anymore because they are crazy. Like, we witnessed them trapping an unsuspecting parker in their back lot and refusing to let her out for twenty minutes because they thought she shouldn't have parked there to begin with. They threatened to have her towed and the poor lady was so frustrated she said, 'Yes! Tow me! I want out!' Also, we ordered food there once via fax during normal business hours and when we went to pick it up, they had closed. We thought it was strange they didn't call us and let us know they weren't open that day.
Best Thai Food in Town – The service was fabulous, we were served soup within a couple of minutes after ordering by a very friendly server. I have eaten at this restaurant numerous times and it is always wonderful and very authentic food.
Great Thai Restaurant! Can call in order and it is always ready to be picked up when I get there. They even remember the way I like it, sometimes not with tomatoes but with mushrooms, just the way I like it. Everybody is always very friendly and ready to take my order if I dine in.
WORST THAI FOOD EVER!!! HORRIBLE SERVICE!!! – Worst Thai food experience ever. Had to point at what we wanted because the waitresses did not understand. Our table was missing two plates and silverware which we had to get ourselves from another table. Food came out fast and cold and one item came out wrong.
HORRIBLE I WOULDN'T RECOMEND IT TO ANYONE!
Excellent Service – Just wanna say I have been to Chai Yo so many time especially on weekend. The food are all good. The waitress is REALLY good. Thanks!! Oil for make my date so perfect. Just give atry and you will love Chai Yo!!
