Ayada in Elmhurst - My new Favorite Thai

Jeffsayyes | Dec 14, 2008 11:42 AM

do people put reviews on here? I don't know, so I will just rant and link to my reviews I guess.

This is my new favorite Thai place - on earth. I've been looking for a Thai place where I can learn everything about the food, and because there are so many Thai in the area, I was having a hard time narrowing down to find THE ONE.

Found it. I am absolutely in love with this place. First, the decor is perfect. dark browns and green highlights. very tasteful. I'm not a person who cares about ambiance at all, but here it is just smooth and beautiful.
not that big, about 25 people max.

I like the style of cooking here. Not just an "authentic" place, but skilled cooking as well. Lots of layers and different feelings brought out in a plate. From talking with the staff, they seem to offer food just like from thailand (northern and central, I believe), and don't care about american tastes. I love that. I am excited for the future of experiencing what more ayada has to offer.

note: the owners are the same as ally's grocery across the street, - which I've heard good things about their pre-cooked food on boards here.

you guys gotta try it. I'm telling you - This could be the next IT. should be the next it, I dig it much more than sriprapai or chao thai or zabb. I am looking forward to hearing your experiences here.
