    A great place for a beautiful dining room, great service, and world class Thai food. Here is what we had to eat and drink: Drinks: Chai Talay- a tropical fusion of vodka, Lemongrass syrup, lime, and house made coconut cream ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ This drink was absolutely amazing!! Like a Thai style Pina colada with lemon grass!! Food: Golden Pouches ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ These were amazing. Little pouches filled work tasty shrimp, chicken, and mushroom. The top closure had a nice crunch that added wonderful texture to the dish. Drunken Noodles ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Chicken, shrimp, onion, bell pepper, bean sprouts, noodles in a Thai basil sauce. So yummy!! Pork Belly ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Garlic chive blossom, onion, red bell pepper, Thai basil sauce. Dessert: Thai Tea Creme Brule ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Slightly sweet, light, and yummy. Like tasting a Thai tea cloud with added sweetness. Chai Yo has literally never failed us. This is world-class, A1, and amazing. It's what you get when the chef knows what they are doing, and every attention to detail is important. What an amazing experience as always.

    My wife and I decided to try Chai Yo for our first time for an anniversary date night out. Our server was knowledgeable of the menu, helpful in steering us to our choices for starter course and dinner and was so kind as to help us by taking a couple pictures with our camera to document our celebratory evening. The food was excellent from start to finish. We did not make it to dessert as we had ordered a few things to share because we wanted to try as much as possible. It all sounded so good on the menu that we wanted try almost everything. Maybe next time on the dessert. Thank you Chai Yo for making our date night anniversary a memorable one.

    Always a dining experience. Classical and modern Thai choices with amazing ingredients. The appetizers are world class so I had four of them and no entree! Consistently good service from servers who actually know details about each choice. I wish they would reopen for lunch...

    I had the cheeks and they served it Thai hot as requested. It was superb the curry and the vegetables had enhanced flavors. The best I had here. I also tried the mushroom ravioli. This plate was excellent. Mu mouth was flooded with different flavors. I will certainly repeat this plate. My wife had the Golden pouch dumplings and the sea bass. Everything was very good!! We missed the passion fruit sorvet!!!!!

    Really enjoyed everything about this experience. I came here to celebrate my birthday with friends and we ordered an array of items from the starters section, and EVERYTHING was yummy. I don't think you can pick a bad dish from this menu. The drinks were really good as well. They also ended my night with a birthday treat of coconut ice cream. I will definitely be back to try more things on the menu!

    Service has improved as high personnel rotation had a negative impact on efficiency and customer satisfaction. The octopus is one of my favorites but over the lad year the presentation and composition varies. To much lettuce, less octopus, etc.

    Very very busy last night. (Saturday) Slow service by a lovely thoughtful server. I imagine, like many restaurants they are understaffed. The food was good. I had the Massaman Curry which was very tasty and spicy. One of our party had appetizers for dinner which she enjoyed. I would go back to Chai but not on a weekend.

    We made our reservation for 6:30 before many people had come in. Our waiter was so good at his job! Our food came promptly after each order. We were very happy with our orders and service. Please be kind to the staff. They are spread thin. We got there at the right time but it soon became very busy and the staff was stressing to meet everyone’s needs.

    One of the worst culinary experiences of my life. I do travel a lot and I cook a lot too, so maybe my expectations are higher than normal, but still, this place is a no go. I think that the service and the ambiance ruin the experience in the first place. I notified them it was my birthday dinner for me and my family and they ruined it all. Greeted by an unpleasant, unexplainably high self esteem girls. The cocktails that we ordered were disgusting. For the price they should blow my senses to another dimension. We were waiting for the food forever. Our waitress couldn’t care less and be less sympathetic. It was getting late, our kids were practically falling asleep and we had enough. Cancelled our order and left. Upscale? Great reviews? Please! How?!?!?
