Food and atmosphere was outstanding! The lamb chops and Sea bass were delicious! We sat in the outdoor area where they had live music. Can’t wait to go back! Owner was super friendly!

The staff was terrific. Sat outside, perfect after a two month quarantine. Good is good, drinks are good and happy to be back.

I normally love this place and I know that it is very challenging to even open the restaurant for in dining during this pandemic and we really wanted it to be wonderful so we could give a great review, but the food was not that good. Our server, Linda, however, was very good and attentive and the staff did a very good job of cleaning everything after each guests left their table and to get ready for the next guest so we feel they were doing a very good job to make us feel safe at the restaurant. We dined outside on the patio and we loved that as it was a beautiful evening with a light breeze. We ordered just very basic gin and vodka martinis and they were very good. We also ordered the Kanom Jeeb steamed dumplings and they lacked flavor and were not soft and light as they should be but seemed to have been steamed way ahead and sat out quite a while before they were served so they were hard and chewy. The Pad Thai also was quite bland and lacked the good flavor we expected and the shrimp tasted of strong iodine, not sweet as would be expected. The Koa Pow Talay had a pretty good flavor, but we were very disappointed that the scallops were not scallops but instead were punched out shark, stringy, strong tasting, not sweet as real scallops are and again the shrimp in the dish had that strong iodine taste. As disappointed as we were we did not complain because we were sympathetic to what the restaurant must be going through in this very challenging time. Hopefully these details will be corrected for future customers because we believe that the people who work here are really great and we want this restaurant to succeed long term.

I would recommend going at lunch time. The food is amazing, but service during dinner time has been awful both times I went. 45 min+ for food to come out for a party of 2. During lunch time we were in an md out within 45 min total, and the food was half the price of the dinner menu for the exact same thing.

They are the only restaurant I know of in Atlanta that require a credit card and will charge you $25 per person if you cancel within 24 hours or change the number of people in your party! This deterred me from booking until a few hours prior to when we wanted to go, there was plenty of seating so perhaps other people don’t like that requirement either

Food was 50-50. Basil rolls very bland and expensive. Corn fritters also tasteless. Beef cheeks and pork belly excellent as was the octopus salad. Service was excellent! Pricy for level of food would t return

The food was amazing and the service was also amazing. Until the very end, the waitress apologized as she got busy on the other side of the restaurant. But she sent someone else to check on us. Only downside our table was near the bathrooms and there was a constant line of people to use it, so it was hard not focus on our conversation with the stream of people. It was also a birthday dinner and they brought us a nice birthday dessert.

Chai Yo Modern Thai food is so delicious! It's a little pricey but worth it if you love Thai food.

Food quality was very good but not very abundant for the price.
Cocktails were very small, possibly only 4 oz martini's!

What a great meal! The ambiance and service is always great...I love the vibe of the space, and there are always friendly faces greeting you at the door. And our food was fantastic! I’m doing the keto diet and they were very accommodating in order to adjust things for my needs. I highly recommend the chicken lettuce wrap and the lobster coconut soup...but my absolute FAVORITE is the spicy pork basil. I could seriously eat it three times a week. I will be back soon!!!

This was our 3rd visit and we took a houseguest. I will admit, I was disappointed. I had 2 Old Fashioneds - in my first drink, the bartender realized she left out the bourbon; my second drink had to go back (from our table) because she left out the simple syrup. It was not a busy night and despite that, overall service was very slow. Pork belly was very fatty, and the food was not presented with the same flair as our other visits - one of the things I like about Chai Yo. Left underwhelmed - I could have been at any Thai restaurant. 😢

We got moved because they made a mistake in seating. They were very considerate and apologetic about the situation so the a small plate, dessert and drinks were on them. It wasn’t a big deal to us but we appreciate how they handled the situation. The food and drinks were delicious. Tapioca dumplings and the lava cake are a must try!
