I've gone here numerous times. I've always liked the food and the service. Last Wednesday I was treating someone for their birthday. Unfortunately, our server kind of screwed us over. We were open to his suggestions on appetizers as I said we were just going to order four apps and two beers each. He was selling us on a roll but failed to mention it was going to be $55 for five or six rolls. I don't mind on spending more on something of an experience or quality, but I don't like feeling being screwed me over. I mentioned to him about that in a nice way just to be considerate next time for others and he said he would take off the water on the bill.....to which I asked for only tap water from the beginning? Just wanted to share bc it was kind of annoying and didn't leave feeling good :/ If you've read any of Danny Meyers' books on hospitality, you'll have a better appreciation of how servers should be more transparent and honest to their customers. You can still get customers to spend a lot that way too.

Yin/Yang. Dinner party of 2 promptly seated on a very busy Saturday night. But, order got lost in the chaos and tables on both sides got served multiple times while we sat. But, once food arrived, it was very good. Full room very loud with large parties. Khao Soi was quite good. Eats & drinks + tip =$130.

The largest complaint was that my entree was brought out first. After 10 minutes of waiting for my wife's entree we had to flag down our waiter to find out where my wife's food was. He explained that they have 2 different kitchens and they do not coordinate with each other. My wife did not receive her food for another 5 minutes. By that time my dinner was cold.

I went for Valentines day with my boyfriend and It was great. Had two rolls, pad thai (which is huge) with shrimp + the popcorn shrimp. We were stuffed and had to take food to go.
It's definitely on the pricey side but I think It's totally worth it. The food is ridiculous.

On Feb 14 we had a 6 pm reservation for 2. 1 hr before I was sent a text warning that if we were more than 15 minutes late the reservation would be cancelled.. We left early and arrive 10 minutes before. The were told the restaurant was still closed.. we had to wait in the bar could get a drink because the bartender had to put on his clothe. They made us wait 30 minutes in the bar and still the restaurant was empty. The waiter Carlos greeted us abruptly we felt like unwelcome guests.... this was our third Time eating here however this will be our last time this is why restaurants decline.

Staff was very unattentive, had to ask twice for everything and was waiting for drinks for a very long time. Appetizers were served faster than a glass of wine and a beer! And after finishing food we were waiting like 15 minutes for dishes to be taken. Music was that loud that i could barely hear my husband. Portions were a way too huge. Popcorn shrimps should be served as a main not appetizer due to size! And an amount of sugar in padthai was a way above the norm. You come to the restaurant to eat, taste and enjoy not to get full to infinity with a very first appetizer which is huge portion like a mount everest and contain million callories. Very dissapointing. Not a place you would like to come back ever, especially for that price! Value for money doesn’t exist.

15 minutes waiting for a waitress, after she brought us water. 15 minutes waiting for silverware/chopsticks/plates after they brought us first dish. Told our waitress that it is upsetting, that we have lack of attention and service, because it’s our friend’s birthday. Her response was “ok, i’ll bring bubbles”. No apologies, no improvements.
For the prices they charge, the service expected to be exceptional.
Overall experience was very upsetting because of the poor service.
Won’t be back for sure.

Sushi was nothing special, actually kinda bad. Only one scoop of rice for a meal for 2. Wasked for extra rice & they charged 5$ for a scoop of rice. That’s incredibly petty! The service was sloooooowwww & bad. The ambiance was great, but it takes more than that to make a good dining experience. Needless to say we will not be going back.

Used to be one of my favorites, but I've watched enough Kitchen Nightmares to know a restaurant death spiral when I see one.

Prices go up, portions and food quality go down. Servers aren't making any money, and it shows in both their attitude and their sneaky upcharges (like recommending an alternative to a $16 dish without a heads-up that it costs $60). The empty dining room makes for an uncomfortable atmosphere, and also leads to unreliable hours (showed up 1.5 hours before 'close' to find a locked door).

Thought it might have been a few bad nights or my imagination, but then read all the other reviews. For the cost of dinner at Naiyara, you could eat literally anywhere else in Miami. I suggest you do.

Chicken wings appeared to be days old
Sea bass was cold and inedible
Pad Thai was not good too sweet and sticky
White wine was warm
When we complained our waiter was stony faced for the rest of the meal. His manger did try to improve the experience by replacing one of the dishes. However she served a replacement fish dish and splashed us with the sauce when she had an issue with how the fish was placed on the plate. Overall worst dinner experience in a long time. I cannot understand how this place was so busy.

Thai food was delicious!
Cold sushi appetizers were amazing. Crispy rice was superb!
Sushi rolls were just ok- overpriced for what they were.
Cocktail was great but took until we finished our appetizers to come and then another was ordered and came after dinner plates were completely cleared.
Noise level was extremely hi- difficult to speak across the table or hear our waiter.
