Never Treated So Poorly

  • No, I would not go back!

To be brief, Jaiya has lost my business for good. As a regular paying customer with so many wonderful places to eat in New York, why would I subject myself to rude employees at Jaiya. There have been a number of occurrences, but most recently I was put on hold four times while ordering food for delivery. A call that should have taken ten minutes, took twenty-five, and then at the end of the phone call, the employee hung up on me before I could confirm the order. Don't waste your time here.

Most delicious pad thai I've ever had

  • Yes, I would go back!

This is my favorite thai restaurant in the city. I get the same dishes everytime I go, so I can only speak to those: Nam Sod, Fried Rice, Chicken Curry and Pad Thai. They are out of this world. I continue to search for other thai restaurants that can deliver the complex flavors that these dishes have and I have yet to come up with one. The decor consists of the sort of awkard attempt at style that so many nicer thai restaurants display- but I always see that as a harbinger of better food.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
