Best Asian place in south beach. Expensive, cosy, good food and good service.

Hamachi jalapeños
Spring roll
Dumplings
Shrimp popcorn
Massassam curry
Udon noodles - the best

Good afternoon Alizeh. From the sounds of things you got to have a nice array of the menu on your recent NaiYaRa visit. Good choices! Hope they keep you wanting more and coming back. Don't forget to try the beef jerky next time!

We decided to try this new coming restaurant on a weekday to enjoy able to try the food but also to evaluate the service: the first was great, the second not really.
We tried many dishes, from rools to sashimi, some noodles, grilled octopus up to desserts.
As we thought, the quality of the food has been excellent in all the dishes we had, maybe only the Burnie, the Toro sashimi, was not at our expectations as it didn't even seems to be real toro for consistency and taste.
But what we didn't like has been the service: our server has been asking us way too many times what we want to order, we ordered a bottle of still water but then she poured tap water mixing it with the still water all times...
She was always hitting our chairs all the time.
We had a long wait between the starters and the main dishes.
Only the check arrived right away.
Overall a good experience that with a better server could easily get exceptional.

Looking for Thai food to celebrate a big 50th Birthday. We would go back just for the soup, it was the bomb and might be the best Miso and Tom Kha Gai soup we have had EVER!. The Crispy Bok Choi was also spectacular. Food is great.

Service was AOK, couple minor challenges, nothing that would cause us to not return.

If I had to find 1 area for improvement I would mention the following:
- Sit outside, it is quieter and better for catching up with friends and family
- They knew we had a big birthday celebration, but no dessert offered
- 20% gratuity added for a group of 7 (seemed steep to me) 18% would be acceptable

Give it a try, we will be back when we are in the area.

Crispy bok choi and green curry sea bass were phenomenal. Watch the shrimp pad Thai...too rich, very heavy on fish sauce.

My husband was hesitant to go as he does not think he likes Thai food. He was pleasantly surprised. We booked with Open Table and were seated promptly. Our server was attentive and our water glasses were never empty! The cocktails were great. Appetizer portions are generous. My husband ordered the Skirt Steak and I had the Green Curry. Both were wonderful. We will be back!
