This was my first visit. The restaurant is beyond beautiful and the food and service was excellent. I had one of the best glasses of wine I've ever had (Allan Scott, Sauvignon Blanc, New Zealand). Highly recommend.

We were there for the Happy Hour menu which included one of our favorite appetizers, emerald gyoza. Great value on the drinks and menu. We stayed for dinner, and ordered 3 more plates, everything was delicious, don’t miss the taro fries. Great service, great food and enjoyed dining in the back garden. Can’t wait to return. Chris

The food was tasty, well probably be back. Grilled oysters were a little underwhelming. Scallops, pork schnitzel, broccolini, doughnuts were good.

The chef has been awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand 8 years in a row! The food is consistently creative and delicious. (Especially the "Chef's Whim" dessert!) The chef draws inspiration from the Northern, North-Central, Central, and Southern regions of Thailand.

Exceptional service. Great date location. Low lighting with a lot of activity and noise levels perfect for conversation. One thing, the leopard rimmed plates and the leopard ties on the staff have to go.

Beautiful place. Wide open bright spacious. Service was great! The drink amazing. Food was good had buffalo sliders, fries and fish tacos. They don’t have a wide selection of food so if you’re hungry don’t go here very small menu.

Lovely and Attentive waitstaff. Accommodating to my vegan dinner companion. And me. Food was excellent. I had mussel pot - with large juicy mussels and a lovely broth with toasted dipping bread. She had bibimpap - yummy. Also we shared an incredible chocolate peanut-butter blackberry sorbet. What a vegan treat!!!!

Great service all around, from Etienne seating us to Will handling our every need at our table. The food was exceptional. The decor is very cool and swanky. The entertainment, the Isabella Isherwood Trio, was fantastic! WE WILL BE BACK. REPEATEDLY.

Vajra is an excellent restaurant. Amid COVID-19 concerns, each party was seated far from anyone else. Everything was handled professionally and hygienically. Servings are large and we took enough to have another meal. I highly recommend!
