Last night we ordered “pork belly”, a new entree for us and it was very good, crispy and very tasty. Chai Yo always has an entree that surprises you and brings a variety of tastes and flavors. We continue to have the octopus and the chilean sea bass that are always exceptional.

Enough portions to share and the food tasted amazing. I knew I was getting the outdoor seating with a risk of food getting cold, but the service was great!

Everyone wore masks the right way. (Not with their nose popping out)

Will dine again!

Recently went to Chai Yo to celebrate my Husband's birthday. We have not eaten out at a restaurant since February, so I was looking for somewhere with outdoor seating. I was very impressed on how they are handling Covid. They checked our temps before seating us, we had to scan a QR code to look at the menu, and all staff were wearing masks, above there nose. They don't have many outdoor tables, but that was perfect for us! We were all well spaced apart. Now our service was absolutely amazing, I wish I could remember his name, maybe Dong? He was very attentive and gave great recommendations. Then finally the food.....ahhh, the delicious food! We are big Thai cuisine fans and this is on a whole other echelon of flavors and quality. Even our kids commented on how yummy everything was and asked to come back. We will definitely be back but it was a hefty bill for a family of 4 and only one glass of wine. But overall it was worth it for a special occasion! Thanks for an amazing experience and dinner!

Went to have dinner on perhaps the most beautiful night in the lady six months. Chai Uo takes their Covid safety protocols seriously - take your temperature when you arrive and seat you on an expansive outdoor area. The food, service, and experience was top notch. HIGHLY recommended during the pandemic and ANYTIME when things are normal again! The beef cheeks - truly outstanding

As always Chai Yo excels; delicious food, attentive service. Thanks to Tang who was wonderful with the customer service. Really enjoyed the patio experience I hope they offer it moving forward even in cooler weather, perhaps with gas heating etc and some modifications for inclement weather given the current health requirements.

The dinner was not perfect as we did no like the table we were seated, but at least it was outdoors. For the first time I ate the Sea Bass and the dish was superb. It was cooked just right and the sauce was just perfect!! I will certainly try other dishes as I tend to always choose the spicy ones. It was delicious!!!
