Food was good, service was great, but it's over priced. Much better ambiance than most Asian restaurants.
It took over one hour to get the second course, soup. Turns out they lost our order but after three servers said they would check we finally called for the manager. She discovered the missing chit and apologized profusely . Only comp was one glass of wine and some free appetizer that was basically chicken McNuggets soaked in sweet and sour sauce . Buckhead has too many good options to ever go back there again. Too bad because the food was actually ok.
Exceptional food. Great friendly service. Beautiful atmosphere where you can actually talk because the music is soft and lovely
One of our favorite restaurants in buckhead
Excellent high end Thai restaurant in ritzy part of town. The owner visits your table and caters to your needs!
The restaurant is very nicely appointed. Kennedy our server was very knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. The food was very good! We started with the Lobster soup followed with the Duck & Beef Cheeks (this speciality really shouldn’t be missed)!
I love this place! I have dined at Chai Yo Modern Thai many times and will definitely be going back. It is one of my favorite restaurants and it is perfect for special occasions. The service is outstanding, the ambiance is just right, and most importantly the food is delicious. I love the octopus salad appetizer and the pineapple chicken or scallop entree. Be sure to try the desserts, especially the lemongrass custard (my wife's favorite dessert of all time) or the pandan coconut ice cream.
I have been twice and would recommend it to anyone. I typically choose to recommend either Nan or now Chai Yo depending on who is going. We love both!
Beautiful environment with an outstanding meal. Sous vide massaman beef cheeks were sublime. Fried rice was delicate and balanced. My lady's pineapple chicken was spiced just right. I'd like to see a few more non-seafood appetizers, but it's a small miss. Also, as great as it was, $30+/plate for Thai is a bit hard to swallow. That said, if anyone in town can command that pricing, this is the place.
Chai Yo is my new favorite restaurant in Buckhead. If you have not been, you're are missing out. Be sure to try the "Lunch Boxes".
Once again, outstanding service and food! One of our favorite spots in buckhead
Excellent food, great presentation and flavors. Staff is knowledgeable and attentive without being overly intrusive. Space is nicely appointed. Great, high-end Thai, on par with Nan, the flagship restaurant of the family.
The Food is Awesome. Tom Kha Soup outstanding and the Duck is to die for.
Beautiful Thai food in a lively environment.
Starter plus main more than enough for 2 people great quality and presentation
We had a bit of a wait for our table (maybe 10 minutes), but the staff was super friendly and more than made up for it by comping an appetizer. Both the owner’s husband and the GM came by to apologize multiple times.
Food was absolutely amazing; hands down, in the top 3 meat entrees I’ve ever had in my life. Chef’s Specialty beef cheeks are highly recommended.
If I’m ever in the Atlanta area again, I will absolutely be stopping in.
NICE PLACE! FOOD WAS VERY GOOD! PORTIONS ARE A BIT SMALL BUT HEY I'M JUST CHEAP.
THE SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT. I WILL BE GOING AGAIN.
First visit. Wonderful service. Our server suggested cocktails, apps, entries. We tried several offerings: dumplings, octopus, sea bass. Food presentation and taste: perfection! Will return to sample more from menu.
The food, service and the atmosphere was great. We ate the dumplings,some were hot on the outside but col inside. The octopus and the lobster curry were superb. My wife asked for the special and we were really disappointed as it really was not that special, it was a very small portion with not a defined flavor and the price was outrageous!!
I was very underwhelmed....NAN is head and shoulders above this restaurant in my humble opinion! The appetizers were amazing but the entrees were not up to NAN quality. Glad we tried it though and wish them much success!
Excellent food. Beautifully presented plates. I love all the interior design. Fantastic drinks and wonderful service! Nice location. Easy for gluten free eating. I highly recommend.
I hate to recommend because I want this to remain a hidden gem! Delicious food, friendly staff, relaxing atmosphere. We had our 11 year old and 17 year old with us. Everyone loved it all. Enjoyed the octopus salad (bright, delicate heat) the tapioca dumplings (burst of flavor) and the lobster coconut soup (smooth, and balanced) as appetizers. For entrees we had the sea bass (light, great flavors without being overwhelming), Pad Thai (fresh, healthy, and gently spicy), Pineapple Chicken (like a sweet & sour chicken, but more sophisticated), and the beef cheeks (tender, layers of flavor, nice heat). Each one was completely devoured. The only issue for some might be portion size. We weren't hungry when we left, but the portions were average. We can't go wait to go back again and try some of the other yummy menu items.
Dining at Chai Yo was an exceptional experience from start to finish. The food and cocktails were creative, beautiful & absolutely delicious. The ambiance was equally impressive, all the decor is from Thailand and set the perfect mood. Service was exceptional as well. We will definitely be back. I wish I could give more than 5 stars!
Tried the days special, just unbelievably good!!
From the moment you enter the restaurant, you know your someplace special! The hostess was so friendly, the aroma, the candle lit atmosphere all set the stage for the fabulous meal which awaits! We started with the steamed dumplings then on to,the salmon Panang curry. Delicious!!! Great cocktails and quick and friendly service made the evening all the more delightful!
New wave Thai cuisine. The pan seared sea bass is outstanding. Service was impeccable.
Very tasty, we went there for my birthday and we liked it very much!! We will certainly rerun!
Amazing dining experience! The food was phenomenal, I highly recommend the octopus salad and the pineapple chicken. Service was great as well and I loved the ambiance, I can't wait to be back!
Great food and service. Maria was wonderful and super helpful and attentive. Will definitely come back here.
New Years Eve
All was great
My friends and I reserved a table for an early New Years Eve dinner. Our server was pleasant, attentive and offered great recommendations. We also noticed the manager on the floor greeting guests and helping to ensure a great dining experience for all the guests. Every staff member we encountered was friendly and accommodating. This was a first visit for many in our party and we were all very pleased with the presentation and taste of the food and cocktails. The ambiance and great service helped make our celebration memorable — thank you! We look forward to visiting Chai Yo again!
Excellent atmosphere and ambiance. Great service and delicious variety of food choices. Beautiful presentation!!
Overpriced and underwhelming. Stuck me in am awful table that was separated from the restaurant and refused to move me even though there were other options available. Food was nothing special and service was awkward.
I truly loved my dining experience at Chai Yo Modern Thai! Thai is my favorite food and everything was amazing. Thanks an amazing New Year Eve!
The service and food quality were both outstanding. Excellent value. An added reason to visit Buckhead.
Really great food!!!! Service is awesome. The lobster coconut soup was probably the best coconut soup I have eaten. You didn’t have to hunt for the lobster, it had many large chunks.
Wonderful upscale Thai restaurant with great food and service. The chef/owner came over and introduced herself. They were very kind on my birthday. Definitely will return.
Very good food and service. We will be returning.
Excellent food and service! We will definitely be back!
The food was delicious and the ambiance was great!
