Our server was amazing! I wish I'd have caught his name, but he had an amazing beard! He was so friendly, suggested great options for my boyfriend and I, and was honest when items I ordered were going to take a while.

The food was so good. We started with soup / salad - the lemongrass soup and papaya salad were great! We got an off menu appetizer, tuna tartar which had cavier, truffles, and gold flakes. The house roll was made with salmon belly and marinated or topped with something sweet. I splurged and tried the steak and eggs piece. Pay attention - it does give prices PER PIECE on portions of the menu.

When we got to dinner, we were already getting full, but the curries we got were equally as good, if not better, than what we'd already been eating that night. I got something with sea bass, and my boyfriend got something with lamb . I loved absolutely every bite!

The wait staff constantly filled our water glasses and cleared our table between different plates being brought out. They were also polite. A+ for service and ambiance here!

This place is really good. We had the crispy tuna rice, sling rolls and uni sashimi and they were all good. For entrees we had the drunken noodles and green curry both very good. I would recommend.

This was our first visit to NaiYara. The atmosphere is extremely lively and quite loud. There were 4 of us and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We had several appetizers and at least 5 entrees to share and sample. Everything was delicious! We all love Thai food and found lots of wonderful dishes including the Branzino, which was excellent. The cocktails were very creative and most were quite good.

·Dined on January 27, 2018

Best menu items that we had were the NaiYaRa roll, crispy rice, and coconut soup. Pad Thai was not good and the skirt steak was nothing special either. The Thai tea dessert was half good: coconut icecream and tapioca were awesome, but the phyllo dough part tasted strange, like sesame, but not in a good way. At $11 for this dessert it was definitely not worth it.

We went with out-of town friends and we all loved the food and atmosphere.
Drinks were creative, outstanding and unusual.
Food was spicy and delicious. We would definitely return
when we visit Miami again. Restaurant had a good vibe
and food & drink matched the excitement of the crowd.
A total fun evening in Miami and well-priced. Great looking and young crowd.
Loved it!

This restaurant is consistently good. Great service and nice ambiance. I love the dumplings, noodle dishes and the curries. It is not a traditional Thai because it is supposed to be Thai street food. Everything is very good. I love this place.
