We were surprised at how expensive it was. Understand that we were in S. Beach but even then we felt it was overpriced for some items such as Spring Rolls. Place was attractive and a good vibe.

We came to NaiYaRa to celebrate our trip to Miami. We found great Japanese and Thai food, excellent service and a very competent sommelier who let us taste bottled wines, with great success.

WE will the back at our next Miami visit - thank you!

It’s key to sit outside where it’s quiet and pleasant. The green and red curry dishes are sensational, regardless, as are the bok choy and so many other items – but inside is much too noisy for many people. Outside is largely sheltered from bad weather. Enjoy!

For the quality of the food, this is a very expensive restaurant. we were a party of 4 of which 1 rated his food "almost unbeatable", 2 as "not good", and one -"ok". just this. Not really good food for an excessive bill?

The waiter was rushing around not even giving us his undivided attention when taking our orders. He was short with us every time he spoke to us, and when a hair was found in the dessert, he spooned it away and just brought a new spoon and plate instead of replacing the dessert! Service was absolutely awful.

The udon noodle was great, the vegan curry was pretty good. The rolls and dumplings were not great.

Food was amazing however they were blaring 80's and 90's rock...it was way too loud and ruined the whole zen vibe. The waiter and other staff appeared to have OCD and were constantly circling, trying to take plates away we were still eating...

Their pad Thai is one of my favorites, but the chicken was way overcooked. The signature cocktail I had was tasty, but for $14 it was way too small, so bad value. The papaya salad, duck I red curry and sea bass in green currry were excellent.
