We were super excited to try this restaurant for our anniversary after hearing such great reviews, but unfortunately we were let down. We waited over an hour and a half for lukewarm food and slow service. Our waitress paid us little to no attention and it was very upsetting. The drinks were very good — our favorite was the chai talay. If you’re looking for a special occasion restaurant, this probably isn’t the place for you. The pad Thai was okay, I’ve had much better and the lamb chops were cold. The curry was delicious. All of the portion sizes were very small. Overall, it was a decent experience but I don’t need to go back again.

Not my kind of Thai. Small menu. Did not care for the spring rolls. Asked that my Drunken Noodle dish
be low heat but it wasn’t. Pineapple chicken too sweet. Good cocktails, Ok wine list.

Nice family who owns the local chain, lovely interior, good service. Just not my style of Thai
so won’t be back.

Went here for Mother’s Day. I’ve been to several restaurants in the area and was excited to try this place. My mom loves Thai food. When we got to the restaurant I was not impressed. The space is decorated nicely, but where we were sat had rice all over the floor. Food was ok but menu wasn’t anything special. Waitstaff were nice. If you want Thai food, save your money and eat at a cheaper place

We had a lovely Mother's Day lunch on the patio. It was a beautiful day and we really enjoyed ourselves. Note that there is construction around the patio, but it did not affect our enjoyment at all, very quiet on a Sunday afternoon.
Specialty cocktails were fabulous and everyone really enjoyed their food.

Food was small portions, and it was good but a bit pricey. I've had better Thai food in 5-star restaurants for less cost. Ambiance was good until a diner tied their barking dog outside the window where we sat. We then left.

This is one of my favorite restaurants. My husband and I have dined here on a few occasions and it has never disappointed. We decided to go on a Monday night because of the advertisement I received about their spicy chicken sandwich with asian slaw that is only served on Monday's. The sandwich is delicious! And the brussel sprouts are soooo good! Top your dinner off with one of their cocktails and its a great night!

After a long time not visiting one of my favorite restaurants in Atlanta ( due to Covid precautions) we were back!! It was an extraordinary event as we had not eaten the high quality thai food the Chai Yo serves. Everything was perfect, tasty, delicious!!! We had the usuals: dumplings, octopus, sea bass, beef cheeks and the passion fruit sorbet!! It was a perfect dinner!! David our server was very attentive and courteous!
The only drawback was the temperature for this time of the year 56F !!!
We will resume our dining routines with this excellent restaurant!!

Great atmosphere, social distancing and plexiglass between tables. They didnt enforce their mask policy as 3 diners showed up no mask ;(

The food was great. Dumplings to start with hot pepper on top had great flavor. The shrimp and scallop basil looked amazing. I had the chilean sea bass with crab fried rice. It was good but I wanted more heat.

Definitely worth a trip.

This was my second time at this restaurant, I don’t think they deal with being busy very well. The portions were less, took almost an hour and half to get our food. When the food came it was not how we ordered it. The rice was not fully cooked. Disappointed because my wife love this place from our first visit.
