Jaiya Thai - wayyy downhill

Lau | Jun 13, 2008 11:36 AM

I had lunch at Jaiya Thai on 3rd and 28th, its been several years since i've eaten here. I used to like this place alot, but I went there today and I think the ownership must've changed or something b/c the food was really bad.

I ordered spring rolls, papaya salad and the chicken w/ green chilis and basil.
- Spring rolls: these were horrible, they where these big deep fried spring rolls that were like the egg rolls u get at crappy chinese take out places
- Papaya salad was ok, but it wasn't spicy whatsoever and was very sweet..not a great rendition of the dish
- Chicken w/ green chilis and basil: this was terrible, the sauce had little flavor and the chicken was overcooked

It was a very disappointing lunch and I doubt I'll go back to Jaiya not sure what happened to this place
