I go there often and always get a great meal. Love the pumpkin curry. Good service. A regular spot for me and my friends.

Read the good reviews on Narai and we checked the menu online and were anxious to try it out. We went on a Sunday evening and found it very disappointing. Actually things started out well. We ordered shrimp cakes and that dish arrived hot, delicious and flavorful. Unfortunately things went downhill from there. I ordered garlic beef which is described... More

I liked this Thai food place. Service was friendly. We had all vegan options. They were extremely good for vegan. Worth trying if you are vegetarian and/or vegan

The part about the door is because Olympia is cold and wet. The food is the best Thai food in Olympia just don't be in a hurry. The servers are all pleasant and thoughtful. The atmosphere is cluttered but interesting.

My hubs and son had pineapple fried rice, which was good. They got spicy level 1, which was good to share with my son. I got the tom kha with spicy level 3, which was too spicy for my boys, but I liked it. I got it with seafood. I loved the overdone, ostentatious inside decor - quite over the... More

We like Narai, but we're vegetarians and eat alot of tofu there---in literally every dish we order. I have found out that the tofu they use is NOT ORGANIC, which unfortunately means it is almost certainly made from Genetically Modified soy, as nearly all the soy in the U.S. is GMO. We are so disappointed, because this will mean we... More

The ambiance is dimly lit and smells greasy. The service was mediocre and the food was very average. I had the lab and the cabbage slices were huge and it looked like they just threw in a bunch of raw red onions. Was not worth the meal!

We arrived around 3 p.m. for a late lunch/early dinner. The restaurant was empty, perhaps a sign of things to come. We ordered the spring rolls for an appetizer, but the wrap was too difficult to chew. When brought to the waithelp's attention she said they were made earlier today and left in the refrigerator which may have been too... More

I visit here regularly and every dish tried has been great. Favorites are Pad Kee Mao and Eggplant Delight. Wonderful selection for vegans and vegetarians.
