Had a very nice evening at NaiYaRa. Giving four stars because inside is way too loud and too cold. However, outside is very nice. The green papaya salad, the fried rice and the green curry with tofu were delicious, and the service was friendly and efficient.

I came for my mother’s birthday and was sooo thankful I chose this restaurant. It was our first time here and the staff made us feel special the entire time. We ordered from the Miami Spice menu and the waiter answered all our questions and recommended my dish to me. The flavors were so unique yet authentic to Thai cuisine. The red curry and Udon noodles were my absolute favorite dishes. Full of flavor, textures, and you can request to have them spicy if desired. The drink menu was extensive and included many fresh ingredients like fresh ginger, lemongrass, and some fruit. I wish I could dine here every week but it is too far from where I live in Fort Lauderdale. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone!

We arrived for our 8:30 reservation and were told we could be sat immediately outside so we agreed. After sitting for 20 minutes and not one member of the staff greeting us (and there were many, many walking around the small area throughout the 20 minutes), my husband went and told the hostess. She said she'd let the manager know. After another 10 minutes of waiting (30 total) with no one approaching or greeting us, we left. Went down the street to Barceloneta and had a lovely dinner there instead. Would give 0 stars on service if I could.

Duck was not edible - dry like paper, manager and chef did not care. Not a single dish came out together, yet place was 1/3 full. Drinks did not have alcohol but cost $14+, wine was $50+ for $10 bottles.

Waiter kept refilling water to the point of obnoxious.

Try giving good food, good choices and not being another Miami overpriced crap.

Food was good. The popular crispy rice dish wasn’t that good but everything else was great. Service was pretty amateur, which was a disappointment given the price point of this restaurant. More of a salesman than a server.

The Food is always top notch. Some of the best Thai in the country. The beef jerky will keep you coming back and don’t miss out on the Dumpling King. Great authentic noodles and perfectly balanced curries round out the menu. The tuna tartar is a true work of art and the staff is warm and welcoming from the servers to the management.
If you haven’t been you are surely missing out!

The food is good and it's a fun place to eat. The service is good. The prices are on the high side. Stay away for the Sushi rolls - they are OK but not worth it. The individual pieces are the better way to go and then start ordering some of the more creative dishes. Recommendations: Spring Rolls, Crispy BOK CHOI, PAD SEE-EEW and GREEN CURRY | GANG KEAW GAI (Sea Bass).

Went to try the Miami Spice brunch, but I was told that open table made an error on the advertising, and that they do not offer miami's spice brunch. Food was ok, but not worth the price for most entrees. Only got a free dessert as a consolation for the falsely advertised spice menu. Very weak beer list. There are better options out there for this kind of fare.

The Major disappointment for us picking this place for brunch based on the menu on our vacation was that we went based on 2-4 menu items that looked good. But our waiter quickly informed us that about 15% of the menu was unavailable and that included all but 1 of the items we went for. The food that we got was all really good and pretty good value. Biscuits were great, my wife loved her steak and eggs fried rice, and my ramen was ok but the only reason I got that was because the two things I wanted they didn’t have. And they didn’t run out because we were one of the only parties in the restaurant
