The service was exceptional, I wish I could remember our server’s name, he was one of the most attentive servers I’ve had in Miami. The food was amazing, ambiance was great, and the GM was a gem! Would highly recommend this restaurant!

Good value for south beach pricing.
Ambiance is loud and energetic. Perfect for dining with a fun group but not a good fit a romantic, quite dinner.

NaiYaRa would get a 5-star rating if they had less of the loud "ambient" techno music. It made it difficult to enjoy what is otherwise a good (but not outstanding) dining experience. The food is good, the decor is beautiful, the service is food if on the slow side.

My Fiance and I have been coming here since day 1. By far our favorite restaurant in Miami. Whenever we have people or family in town it is our go to restaurant. Quality and service are always on point and Chef Bee makes you feel at home. Amazing atmosphere overall.

Excellent service! Most of the food was insanely delicious, only a few I wasn’t too keen on. The crispy Bok Choy was SO GOOD!! Salmon slayer was also amazing. The two dishes I wasn’t crazy about were the tempura shishito’s and the Pad see ew (had a little too much of some seasoning). Overall great place! I will be back to try more dishes!

The food was very good, but the service was awful. We went for a bachelorette brunch (there were only 6 of us) and we were literally the first people in the restaurant, and the only ones in there for probably the first 20 minutes. It took them over 20 minutes just to get drinks (we ordered mimosas... not overly complicated) and then when our first course came out, one persons didn't come out for another 10 or so minutes. The server didn't say anything. She rarely came over throughout the meal to see if we needed anything else, and we ended up having to take forks from other tables because we waited for another 10 minutes after asking for them. We ordered off of the Miami spice menu (which was a great deal), but when we sat down they told us that they didn't have the pancakes or waffles that day, and there was no chance of them having them. These were two of the 8 or 10 things offered. As soon as we finished our meal, we see them bringing out pancakes and waffles to other tables. So we ask why we were told there wouldn't be any, and our server just said "oh yeah, after you ordered I was told we had them" but never told us. She then asked if we wanted to place an order, so we said yes, and they brought them out in a to go container, so we awkwardly tried to share from that. Overall a really disappointing experience service wise.

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!
