This is THE BEST Thai! I like my food real spicy - and I can't order more than Medium - and its very hot! I love the Seafood Soup, Shrimp w/Pepper & Garlic, and Chicken with Special House Sauce w/out egg (not on the menu, but amazing!!) My friends order the Pad Thai every time. Their delivery is super speedy too! If you like spicy, fresh, inexpensive food, then I highly recommend Jaiya for any night of the week that you're looking for take-out/delivery.

It's overpriced. But it's an original take on Thai food, and their Tom Yum is like crack rock! (for similar prices: $11.00 for a two serving hit) Be careful- their "mild" is spicy- their "spicy" is pretty much inedible (and I love spice, tabasco, etc) I recently tried Zagat's so-called best Thai in nyc in Queens, and I like Jaiya's Tom Yum and Pad Thai better. Their Massaman has pineapples in it.

The food at Jai Ya is consistent and consistently good. Fresh ingredients, wonderful and skillful use of spices, and a wide variety of options. This is not your typical greasy take-out joint--- if you try other Thai places (such as the Thai place that opened right next door) you will likely come back here again and again in appreciation of their skill in the kitchen. The food is rather spicy, but you can request mild as you wish. They have been in the neighborhood for over 15 years, and they are almost always packed after 6 o'clock because of their reputation. Great curries, fried rice,and good cuts of meat along with fresh herbs and spices add up to a winner. The decor is typical- come for the flavors.

Have been going to this restaurant since 1995. Have never been unhappy. It is like most restaurants in service and environment, but food, is second to no other Thai restaurant. So if you are looking for a place where servers treat you like a king or queen, or where you can expect to rub shoulders with the glitterati , i would not recommend this place. But if you are looking for amazing Thai food, i woul definitely recommend it.

I have to agree with MK on the priciness and small portion size. I'd rather have good food than have to eat it for days like other places, but the lunch special doesn't fill up an average sized girl. The food is nothing special, except their fried rice is more of a sticky rice, and that was good. Everyone recommends this place so I tried it again and had the same portion experience. I'm not going back to Jaiya.

Yes, it's ridiculously spicy unless you ask for it mild, but after trying all the nearby Thai, I truly believe that it's the best in its nieghborhood by far.

Poor service, bad look, pricey, but great food.
