One of our favorite places – especially on the weekends when they have live music along with great outdoor dining. Favorite meal is drunken noodles – if you're feeling adventurous, try it extra spicy. Unusual cocktails and great service.

We had a great time celebrating our anniversary. We come here every year for our anniversary dinner because the food and the service are always on point; even amidst construction in the background and a global pandemic! The live music was great and I thought it would impressive the staff was able to incorporate safety into the operations while still providing a nice ambience. Knowing that safety measures were in place and consistently followed allowed us to enjoy our experience without being overly worryied about our safety. Hats off to Chef DeeDee and the Chai Yo staff for always making it a special evening to remember.

We had a delicious dinner this last Saturday night. The lobster soup and the sea bass along with the shrimp and scallop dish was amazing! Sat outside on the patio with social distancing. Listen to live music that was actually very good. It was a woman singer. Unfortunately right after we finished our entrées the skies opened and huge thunderstorm came in so everybody rushed to get inside the restaurant. Certainly not the restaurants fault so I highly recommend them. Some of the Best Thai food in Atlanta.

Best meal we've had since we moved to Atlanta in March of 2020.. and we have had some pretty spectacular meals. Excellent service as well.

The Lemongrass soup made my husband curse because it was so delicious. He also loved the Pandon Old Fashioned. I loved the Tequila Daisy, the Lemongrass Soup, and the Seabass... oh wow... the Seabass. TO. DIE. FOR.

From the moment we entered, the staff was friendly and attentive. We wore masks as did all of the staff. Also, our temperature was checked. We had reservations for an outside table to ensure we could be separate from other guests. As we walked to the patio, I noticed the seating inside also was distanced.

We had the Chicken Corn Fritters and Basil Rolls appetizers. YUM! We had Pork Belly and Pad Thai for our entrees. YUM! The Pork Belly is spicy. The Pad Thai comes with about 4-5 jumbo shrimp. We wanted to try a dessert but were too satisfied to eat anything else.

Oh yes...I had the Pandan Old Fashioned. It was the BEST Old Fashioned I've ever had. Seriously!

Overall, a wonderful experience. Attentive service. Great food and drinks. And safety precautions!

The food is absolutely spectacular! I frequent all their restaurants and this is no different in terms of food quality, presentation and service, I highly recommend the Pork Belly and the Sea Bass for dinner. And the beef jerky for an appetizer. Their Lobster Coconut soup was better than I could have imagined. We will be back.

Outdoor seating was one of the main reasons we chose to go to this restaurant. The ambience was great although we would have preferred that the music was on the softer side so that we could actually hold a conversation. The service was excellent. Given the current Covid climate, the outdoor restaurant is an excellent way to mitigate the risk; The restaurant is following the protocols and we would love to come back. I do have a few suggestions to improve service during Covid, which I will communicate using the private message

We always try and eat at Chai Yo when we come to Atlanta. The food is always fresh and delicious and the staff are so friendly..... just makes us want to come back again and again!
I think some people might have a hard time locating Chai Yo because its tucked in a plaza near the St Regis where we stay. EVERYONE should make a special effort to enjoy this jewel of a restaurant!!!

The food at ChaiYo is amazing as always; but the experience is ruined more often than not by poor service. I've been 3-4 times in the past 6 months or so, and all but once was horrible service. Food takes a crazy amount of time to come out. It's an expensive waste of 2 hours. Do not recommend.
