Nice restaurant with very authentic Thai food, easy parking, walkable area good for people watching. The service was good and attentive without being intrusive, prices are a little high for the type of food but average for the neighborhood. Will certainly be back.

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

This is one of my favorite places in Miami !!! I feel like they don’t market themselves enough because when I suggest it to friends not many have heard of it. The food no matter what u order is exceptional and fresh. The drinks are incredible. No complaints from me. This is my 8th visit over the past year.

We found NaiYaRa on the list of top places to eat on EATER. We loved it, all of it. The menu was creative and obviously Thai inspired. We had the crispy rice, recommended by our waiter and a couple of other starters which were very easy to share like the Spanish chargrilled octopus and the ribs. For our main we shared a red curry with crispy duck. Outstanding. If we lived in Miami Beach we would go again for sure!

Fantastic setting, super chic for a thai restaurant, great vibe and people watching. Portions are perfect sized, on the smaller side which i think is great for sharing. A little loud but not too bad if you go later. Service was excellent. They ran out of coconut soup which was disappointing.

So, there was a staff of about 20 people and 4 occupied tables in the restaurant. Somehow the service still managed to be not so good. The food was good but nothing special. Overall a good restaurant but wouldn’t recommend.

Thank you
