In lieu of Tamarind Seed no longer here, I chose this place to entertain a friend , neither of us having ever been to Chai Yo. Very, very nice surprise. Wore a jacket but that was not necessary. Food presentation impressive. Will come back with more friends.

This place exceeded all of my expectations. It's the best Thai food I've had in Atlanta and the hospitality really blew me away. I was celebrating my third anniversary and was given two complimentary glasses of champagne. I would definitely recommend Chai Yo to anyone celebrating a special event. The staff and place itself are great.

It was a little disappointed this time around… Have been here several times and really loved it, but this time had to order off the gluten-free menu and ordered several appetizers which were minuscule -Good, not great! Was excited to order scallops but the scallops were drowned in a sauce ithat tasted like a Chinese sweet-and-sour sauce… Total overkill on the flavor. Was Happy to see a place with a gluten-free menu, but the entrées definitely need more work
