Foursquare Tips

  • Great Thai fare with an expansive menu. Some of the best dishes are hearty ones, like rice cooked with funky shrimp paste, Hainan chicken, or a fried watercress salad.
  • Try the E-Sarn sausage here, which gets its oomph from fish sauce and galangal. Featured in Cheap Eats 2011!
  • Jungle curry at AyadaTheres no creamy coconut milk to temper the flames of this tear-jerking Thai dish, the spiciest in the countrys anthology of curries.
  • I love it here! Crispy Duck Salad is really good. Crispy Watercress Salad and Raw Shrimps could be improved (Sripraphai Restaurant has it better). Soups are delicious!!! Give it a try!
  • Ayada > Spicy shallot!! Love their fried chicken, fried calamari, chicken basil fried rice and basil pork mmmm
  • The drunken noodles may be the best noodle/pasta dish I've ever had
  • Ask for Thai spicy for your papaya salad. It was amazing, just like having it in Thailand.
  • Get raw-shrimp salad, redolent of lime, garlic; panang duck curry, with its pinpoint calibration of sweet, sour, and spicy; crisp, lacy catfish salad; mango sticky rice, a dissertation in ripeness.
  • Coconut mojito really good.
  • $15 minimum credit card
  • Try the extremely spicy som tum with sticky rice and thai iced tea.
  • After more 20+ trip in past 3 years, I think it's the best Thai food in town.
  • If you trekked out this far from the city, Ayada was a much more satisfying meal than SriPraPhai. The fried snapper special reminded me of local meals on the beaches of Khao Lak and Mai Khao.
  • Catfish and eggplant. OMG.
  • Spicy means spicy.
  • my go to dishes: duck panang, drunken noodles, Chinese broccoli & crispy pork, red snapper (they can filet this if u don't want it whole), crab fried rice (chunks of crab meat!). Oh they deliver!! ;)
  • Ayada is one of New York's best Thai restaurants, and you'll never have to fight monster crowds to snag a table. [Eater 38 Member]
  • Incredible, but when they say spicy, they mean it. Whole spicy chiles give amazing flavor
  • The "raw shrimp" appetizer is out of this world!!!
  • Try the raw shrimp w/ chili & lime for a major kick. Pig leg w/ mustard greens is a chef standard. Crispy Chinese watercress salad is a textural feast. And sauted sator beans brings a savory funk.
