I'm a big fan of Thai boat noodles. For those who love Thai food and haven't tried Thai boat noodles yet, this place makes it spot on. I was impressed with the Thai boat noodles here. They don't have traditional items in the bowl like tripe, intestines and water crest, but their broth is authentic and it's all about the broth. And their price is very reasonable. Another place that makes Thai boat noodles just as good is Long Beach Thai. But they charge too much for this bowl of noodles. But they do have all the other items i mentioned in the bowl. I also tried crispy pork and Chinese Broccoli. It's made the right way here and portions are actually more generous here than other Thai spots. I had Thai food all over including in Thailand, This place is legit. I was skeptical for many years passing by this place because most customers are not Asian and the guy working the cash register was white. So I thought non Asians customers and no Asian workers at an Asian restaurant? And I thought this is not legit but after trying it, it now proves the old saying don't judge a book by its cover. You have to try reading a few pages to see. Now that I tried a few dishes here i now can see this is a go to place for me and I was proved wrong and now I will be spending my hard earned money here to eat great Thai food

Definitely a spot worth stopping over, the food is great and well prepared, the pricing is convenient and it is constantly well kept there. Keep up the good work.

This restaurant is my number one restaurant. Of all restaurants I know I prefere it most. I always suggests to my friends to go to visit this restaurant. when I I need a proper lunch, this restaurant comes immediately to my head. very good and all sorts of food and a large menu.professional crew, and agreeable atmosphere. Also, the cost is fair. I recommend this restaurant with pleasure.

Not very good, yellow curry was really bland, ordered extra spicy and wasn't spicy at all. Tom kha soup wasn't very good either, flavor just didn't have a lot going on. Papaya salad had no flavor to it. Crab fried rice still had pieces of crab shell in it and was small shredded pieces of crab. Much better options around

We frequent Nayada often. Their food is always fresh and incredibly good. The options are vast and the servers are pleasant and helpful. Their takeout is also something we use often and it is very quick and the orders are always right! Recommend Nayada to everyone we know !

I don't normally post reviews for restaurants. We love Nayada. I've never had anything that I did not love from here. My favorite dish is the Rad Na shrimp. It is full of flavor and is a great comfort dish. The soups are excellent too. The staff is very attentive and friendly. It is also a very clean restaurant. During this pandemic we tried their take out for the first time and it was spot on. Our order was correct and it was ready to go when we got there. Even the way they packed the order was done well. Can't wait to eat there tomorrow night!

Love the food here! Even when you order takeout it's delicious! Really enjoy the Golden bags as an appetizer! They're soooo crispy! Love the tom yum soup, the yellow curry, Thai fried rice, pad see ew, pad thai, & the chicken satay! Can't wait to actually dine-in here when quarantine is over!

I love Thai cuisine, when I moved to Lakewood 4years I had to search for a new Thai restaurant and I found it 5 minutes from my home. I praise God for that. The owner and employees are friendly and very hospitable

Forever my favorite Thai spot; the employees are always so nice here and the owner is always around as well which is nice to see. The Tom Yum soup here has became my favorite! After trying others, this one tops them all. The to-go portion is a good size as well! Usual order: pad Thai, Tom Yum and Orange chicken. *drool*

Can't believe this. We ordered Paw see Ew through Postmates!! We recieved Pad thai with peanut. My kids have peanut Allergy and they says that it's the drivers fault that they cannot recover the mistake!! Unbelievable customer service !!! HORRIBLE !!!!

My husband and I have been coming here for years. We don't even have to tell them what we want, they know our favorites. Yellow curry, cashew chicken, chicken chow main, sweet and sour chicken seem to always be our go to's. But we have tried many other dishes. Always freshly made to order and such great service. Let's support them during the coming months. We love the staff and the food!

I really like the flavor of their boat noodles, the only thing that I wasn't a fan of is all the chunks of Chinese broccoli in there.

I frequent this outstanding place every couple of days because I enjoy the special atmosphere that is part of this restaurant. The personel is extraordianrillyremarkably cordial and experienced. The service is extraordinarily fast. Most important, the food you eat is outstanding. I visited more than once and I was never disappointed. The pay is fair. I recommend this place to my friends and family.

Kris J.

I love this place! I can always find parking. It's decorated beautifully, the staff is sweet as can be and the owners are wonderful! I could eat the shrimp salad everyday. I've loved everything I've tried. Definitely recommend!

Bernard Danek

The food is regularly fresh and delicious, employees provides excellent service. I like how neat it is and ambience. I highly recommend this place.

Perry Croley

This place obviously knows how to take care of their customers. Always with a welcoming demeanor. The food is affordably priced, regularly flavorful and neat.


I had some pineapple curry with tofu and the summer vegetable rolls, both were great, the cucumber in the roll tasted lightly pickled, which I didn't mind. It's a great meal for once in a while. The fried tofu they served with the summer rolls looked like cute little thick crinkle cut fries.

Christina J.

Wow! We were so impressed. Came for a late weekday lunch and it was delightfully in crowded. We ordered the coconut soup with shrimp, pad see ew with chicken (from the lunch menu), and another spicy noodle dish with tofu (also from the lunch menu). Everything was fantastic, especially the soup! One taste and my husband said, I think we've found our new Thai place. We'll be back.

Service is okay, but the food is not good at all for what you pay. There are much better Thai restaurant with reasonable prices around.

Best Customer Service!! Food is Always Amazing here.. Best Thai Restaurant.. Everyone has to come in and try this place..

Used to eat here frequently when it was Tantalizing. This is the second time since the sale and renaming. And you know the saying... f*¢k me one, shame on you; f*¢k me twice.... Look, the food is okay. It is not gourmet in any way, but serviceable Thai food. The portion size is small for the price and the fact that THIS IS A STRIP MALL Thai food joint. Nothing fancy here. Entrees start at $10 and go up and up. Everything is $2 extra for beef or shrimp. My pad Thai was $2 extra for shrimp, which works out to a dollar per tidbit of shrimp. Yep, two tiny shrimps. The spring rolls were served very warm, bordering on hot, which made the shrimp inside smell really fishy, spoiled. The yellow curry with chicken (served with steamed rice) had good flavor, a subtle heat, but the abundance of un(der)cooked carrots and the four big chunks of onion skin were definitely off-putting. We all know the service is slow here. But for the life of me I cannot understand why this place is scorching hot any time of the year. In the summer, I might understand an overworked AC system. But it is mid-January, in the 50°s outside, but over 80° in this place. WTF?! Summary: Overpriced but decent-tasting strip mall Thai food. Save yourself some cash and lots of time and just order takeout Thai from one of the many, many other places within a mile of this one.

I used to order from this place almost 2x a week. The other night we decided to order thru post mates. Usually we go pick up our selves. We haven't order in over 6 months. The quality and taste has definitely changed. Not sure if it's a different chef but the beef salad had no taste. The coconut soup didn't taste good either. The yellow curry was bland. Just wasn't happy. I hope they go bacK to what they were doing 6 months ago because for now I'm looking for another Thai place.

This review is LONG overdue. This is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE restaurant ever. Not only is the food spectacular but the amazing souls who work there are just hands down phenomenal. Love everything about this place, I cant wait to eat there this weekend!

First time eating there....people were friendly...good service... Food and Appitizers. Were Very good.. Our portions were little small...for what We payed... Over all nice place...

Terry Boyd

Nayada is an intimate restaurant. The service is reasonable.. The food is very good. I tried the appetizer sampler which was very good and cooked to order, a nice surprise considering the fast food mentality you see all too often.. I also ordered the Pad Thai with Shrimp which was very good. The prices are very reasonable..

Steve Bird

The place offers a nice variety of delicious food. I love dining here. Employees are always nice, rates are reasonable and the place is always clean.

Authentic Thai food. Their Lemongrass soup is so good, as is their Pad See Eww and Crab fried rice. I love coming here - the food may take a while - but it is fresh and yummy!

So since moving to East Long Beach, this became our go to Thai food delivery. We love the massaman curry, something we hadn't had before, with a more peanuty and rich sweetness than other curries. We also love their yellow curry and the pad woon sen. We finally went to dine in recently after seeing a movie at the towne center (it's located across the street on Carson) and its a lovely place to dine in. It wasn't too crowded, serves beer and wine and had very nice food presentation. Nice for a date night. Highly recommend if you're looking for quality Thai food in East Long Beach.

Disappointing! Wanted to eat here New Year's Eve. Not busy inside and we waiting 15 minutes. Inside the door came another customer--and they were helped first!. Then the waitress yelled at my wife and myself telling there was only two of them serving. Our fault? NEVER will go here again!

Stephanie B.

UNBELIEVABLE!!! We walked in & started to sign in. We were told Not to as we were next. Husband stood at the check in counter for 15 min. Another couple came behind us & the same girl that told us we were next started to seat the other couple. When we spoke up & reminded her we have been waiting, this girl snapped at US & started yelling that there are no tables & there's just 2 of them working. WHY would you only have 2 people working on New Year's Eve? Of course, who would stay in a place that doesn't understand the VALUE of the customer that they just yelled at? NOT US! I hope they read this...EPIC FAIL! We will NOT EVER return to this place. The other thing hubby noticed is that the girl was taking dirty dishes off the table & immediately putting clean dishes/silverware with the same filthy hands.

Thai boat noodle is great.

Excellent food and friendly efficient staff.

After receiving a massage next door, we decided to eat here. I'm glad we did because I really enjoyed their Thai Boat soup although it was the last one that reached our table. The flavors were totally up my ally with the perfectly cooked noodles, beef and beef balls. The crispy pork with broccoli and pad se ew were also tasty. However, the pad thai was ok and our least favorite. It was lacking in flavor and mushy. We also had the sticky mango which was delicious.

Victoria Betancourt

You must try the Coconut soup, yum yum!!!! Rich and creamy!

Kimberly B.

Great orange chicken and crab fried rice. They could increase the portion size but the flavors are good.
