Service
 
Whether you prefer “spicy” or “incendiary” , these East Side Thais offer “authentic” Siamese food running the gamut from standards to “challenging, take-no-hostages” dishes; “decent” price points trump the “noisy” settings and less-than-stellar service.

Absolutely delicious! One of the few places in the city that I come regularly for that Thai fix. Great food. Amazing ambience. Perfect amount of spice. Make sure you listen to the waiter's spice recommendation otherwise your meal may end prematurely thanks to your gut.

Jaiya made the best Thai food on the UES, which came at a price nonetheless. This evening ordered two of my usual dishes and they were less than satisfactory. Food was exceptionally dry and a strong sour taste to it. Think I’ll give them a skip for a couple months. Sorry!

I bought fried whole snapper fish to go because I have had it many times at there location. I picked up the fish unknown to me that the fish was not good. I called back and told them the fish is not good and asked that they replace it with something else. I came back to return the fish untouched and pick up my replacement order. The manager in charge refused to give me back my partial refund in cash and instead said it will be a store credit with no store credit receipt given to me. They have no policy on their receipt stating that there is no cash refund but she insisted that it’s there policy. The Manager Ann serving me was also very rude during the conversation. I have eaten at this location more than 10 times with friends and family and have placed to go others before. This was not the experience expected especially when they knew I was a regular and it’s the first time I had to give them such feedback.
