the music was too loud. It started at a good level but it went up and up. Live music is fine and we liked it but it was too loud.

Truly unique menu with food that exceeds your lofty expectations! Great location, atmosphere, and service. One of the best restaurants in Florida and by far the best Thai restaurant I have ever been to.

The indoor setting is nice and the service was very good. The food should be exceptional at the prices they are requesting. The Pad Thai was only fair and not particularly interesting or unusual for almost $30 as an entree (base price plus adding shrimp or beef or chicken). The best thing we tasted were the Spring Rolls. There were four of us so I tasted several dishes. It was nice that they had a DJ spinning music and we weren’t rushed which was a plus. The Sancerre was good and was priced at $17 a glass. Our bill was almost $300 but there are so many other better options for dining in the area so I wouldn’t rush to go back. Thai food is relatively inexpensive to prepare so at NaYaRa prices the food needs to go up a major notch for NaYaRa to continue its longevity in my opinion.

Amazing food, poor service.
When you go to an expensive restaurant the minimum you expect is a great service, a nice plates presentation & food level goes down when you experience a bad service.

a very nice place with a good environment but when you book so you call they don't tell you that you only have one hour to eat take the staff is on top of you so you can leave as soon as possible in my experience I do not recommend it is not what I expected for Nothing is attended with bad in seinto that they rush you in everything they brought me the bill without asking for it, you can not even order another drink or talk very badly, I'm sorry, I do not recommend it

Everything is cooked in so much grease. We couldn’t even eat the boy Choy. Sticky ribs were good, but like candy. Wagyu dumplings were good.

WOW what a difference Covid -19 can make! Menu has been altered drastically, the service unspeakable! Did not see the server from the time we order until he stumbled by it table asking if we wanted dessert!

Management did adjust the bill which was appreciated but the bigger issue the the detestation of the over restaurant

Receive multiple cards and texts to confirm reservation only to arrive and find 10-15 empty tables

Very disappointed

This was not authentic Thai food. The dishes were extremely bland and not good value for the money spent. Service was also very slow. I don't often write reviews but felt obligated to do so this time.

Took forever to seat us despite every table outside being empty. Took at least 30 minutes to get the bill. Food is expensive but very good. The issue is they had half as many wait staff as needed. They had a DJ but no waiters!

This is mall quality Asian food that’s actually inside a mall. It doesn’t look anything like the photos posted. The service was poor, inattentive and the staff including the manager just stand around on their phones. The atmosphere is like a nightclub that serves food, the decor is cheap and plastic.

It’s priced like a Michelin star restaurant. I didn’t rate 1 star as the food wasn’t terrible, it just wasn’t good and there is no correlation with the price whatsoever. I’m not averse to spending money on dining either, our meals the previous nights were both twice as expensive, I just know when something is not worth it at all.

The food was good. Servers were nice and pleasant, but the food came out extemely fast and they also cleared the table very fast. Ambiance was lively. Music was SO loud, it was impossible to have a conversation. Good for an everyday dinner. Too loud for a date or for more than 2 people who may want to talk to each other while eating.

NaiYaRa is a neighborhood place for us. They used to be a Thai restaurant but now offer sushi as well, there are already 2 very good (and popular) sushi restaurants in the neighborhood so I'm not sure this was needed. The food is good but very overpriced. Two orders of Pad Thai and two glasses of wine emptied my wallet to the sum of $95 and that was with no meat, we had tofu and veggies. Great location, tasty food, odd selection and very expensive for what you get.

Not for me! The food was pretty good, but the selection is small and their flavor profile is geared more towards the sweeter side. It’s also very loud inside, and they can be a little unorganized.

I hate to write a bad review but the service was AWFUL! I understand that servers get busy, but after we were sat not 1 person came to our table for 20 minutes as I watched an employee sit on their phone near the sushi bar. I didn’t like my drink so I got a glass of wine which took a half hour to get from the bar, and was still charged for the cocktail. Our server never checked on us ONCE to see how the food was. We had a pile up of empty dishes sitting out on table for 45 minutes. The worst part is she serviced received an automatic gratuity for doing absolutely nothing. I have to flag down another staff member to get a second glass of wine. You would think when you pay $26 for ONE slice of nigiri which is extremely overpriced, you could at least get decent service. It is way overpriced and service is the worst experience I’ve had in a long time.
