Went here with a co-worker for lunch. Ambiance is very nice: black, clean, and chic. Staff are prompt and attentive. Menu is extensive, with some items I'd not seen on many other Thai restaurant menus. I went with the green curry with beef and washed it down with hot green tea. Coworker had same curry with chicken. We split cheese... More

Visited this place for dinner on a weekend because their sister restaurant was closed on that day, which was our place of choice to dine based on previous reviews. The place has a very good ambiance, good service and nice décor but the food is just average. The flavor of authentic-like Thai food were completely missing. The portion sizes were... More

This is a bright and modern restaurant with a cosy feel. My favorite, the pad thai was excellent and my dinner companions were well pleased with their selections as well. Every time I have eaten at either location of Yaya's, I have been pleased both with the food and the ambiance.

I have eaten here by myself and with work colleagues. Lunch specials are the main interest for me. The meal is slow in coming out while the waitresses seem arrogant as if they are doing me a favor by serving me. No customer service interest has been detected by me or my colleagues. The food comes with small portions- although... More

It's never crowded and seems like we almost have the place to ourselves every time we go. Great atmosphere, super friendly staff and amazing curry. Truly a hidden gem.

We went to get our oil changed in San Antonio and time to spare so we started looking for a place to eat. We stumbled upon this place. So glad we found it. The curry was great.

It's just average. Seldom crowded at dinner, I have heard lunch is very busy. The Pad Thai is fair but a bit too sweet for my taste. I think it's too much palm sugar. The menu is standard and the restaurant environment is "cold" in it's design elements.

An office favorite. Good quality Thai food, reasonably priced and always well prepared. Daily soup specials in addition to standard menu items. As with other Thai places, if you want it spicy they are more than willing to help you reach new levels of taste bud sizzle.

A friend and I had dinner at YaYa Thai on 2/17/2016. We ordered spring rolls, Tom Kha soup, massaman curry, and "three best friends." The portions were generous. Tom Kha soup had an excellent balance and consistency. The massaman curry wasn't the best I've had, but it was very good. Three best friends consists of beef, chicken, and shrimp and... More
