We had a Valentine's dinner here so had high expectations. This has been a favourite spot for my wife for 10 years and for me for 2 or 3 years since my discovery. I (we) had never found any flaws with the food in the past, and the presentation was always a spectacle, with food served in coconuts or plating... More

But now not so much. Use to be a treat going here, food was amazing, service was so pleasant. Had Pad Thai there for lunch today and it was pretty disgusting. Semi cooked noodles in a barbecue sauce. Pad Thai????? If it wasn't for the fact that I was there for a business lunch, I would have definitely complained. The... More

Definitely not the best Thai spot in Ottawa. Maybe in the area but not the best in Ottawa. I came here for lunch and the food was very average. Probably won't come back as there are better places in town. I had the yellow curry for lunch, the price was decent and the curry was decent as well. I also... More

Near Herongate plaza in a mini mall is a little gem of a restaurant for anyone who likes Thai food. I found the atmosphere elegant with nice subdued tones in the furnishings. Not knowing the menu, I was looking at the lunch time items and wanted a green curry dish but wasn't directed to the equivalent dinner menu item; not... More

My family and I always come to AiYara when we crave Thai food. Service is great and friendly, food is always fresh and we are guaranteed to be happy and full by the end of the meal.

Because we don't want to ever grow used to the treat that is Aiyara, we (an office of 6 to 10) are continually trying other places (not always Thai) but inevitably someone (not always me) opines that it would have been better if we had gone to Aiyara. Most of the time, we order from the lunch menu but I've... More
