We loved it. First of all our server was amazing. I wish I remembered his name. Everything thing we had was excellent. My husband had a “whole crispy fish” did not 1 bone and it was cooked to perfection! He loved and devoured it. I had the green curry with shrimp -best I’ve ever had.
Tuna tartare appetizer “ off the charts amazing”
We dined outside. Our reservation was honored on time.
We’ll be back
Thank you!!!

First time, party of two, three very good and solid dishes: lemongrass soup, papaya salad, and thai skirt watercress salad. We shared and added a dessert. Satisfied. Will go back.

The food was excellent but to much expensive and I have the impression that the when we ask the waiter ( from Thailand) some recommendations, he bring to much food and the most expensive dishes.
We were four people, and the bill include automatic 20% tip.
Owners should care these details. There are to many restaurantes options.

Came there for the sushi after hearing lots of recommendations. The rice of the sushi was sweet. The Pad Thai was sweet. The tuna pizza was filled with mayo.
Didn’t enjoy the food.
Have to give it another try.

Happy Hour cocktail and small bites menu fro 5pm to 7 pm was good. But Thai related dishes sauces were too sweet, crispy Pad Thai. The menu item of 2 pound fried fish was not two pounds and so over fried you could barely fine a tender fish morsel. Jalpeno Hamachi app. was good but good but over priced for 6 thin pieces for 22 dollars. Overall all was overpriced for food we ordered even for Miami Beach.

I had friends in town who had 'gone big' for a week & weren't interested in another night in the South Beach scene. For their last night, they were seeking a locals place with great food, service & ambiance that didn't break the bank. NaiYaRa always delivers. It was perfect. Thank you!

We came here for my friends birthday, first of all we pushed the reservation back until 10 from 9:30, without realising the kitchen normally closed at 9:45 but they stayed open for our reservation. They made us feel so special and welcome even coming so late. The host told us “it’s the chefs pleasure to stay open for you”.

Chef Bee came to the table, as he usually does and was so accommodating to my friends dietary requirements. She doesn’t eat meat and very little fish so he was able to make a dish that was suitable.

We didn’t feel rushed even though we came so late. They celebrated and sung happy birthday with us over desert. The quality of the food was superb as always and the service was impeccable. You can really tell that the people who work there really care about their job. It’s so refreshing to see!

This is probably one of, if not my favourite restaurant in Miami. You are guaranteed an experience, even just with the food alone it’s top notch! Thank you Naiyara!

Very noisy. We didn’t get sushi which is apparently what is good at this restaurant. Place was super super noisy. We had to sit at the bar because our reservation was messed up and they overbooked the place. Maybe MIAMI doesn’t know anything about food service and hence why my reviews aren’t yet the greatest:

When we entered the restaurant, we were surprised at how loud the music was. The four of us hadn’t seen each other in years. and were looking forward to catching up. It was impossible to carry on a conversation. That was unfortunate.
The food was very good although expensive. We all had the Tom Yom soup. We shared the crispy Bok Choy which was delicious. We had shrimp Pad Thai, chicken Pad Thai, chicken Chow Fun and chicken curry. We all enjoyed our entrees.
