There are many Thai restaurants in NYC that are pretty tasty. What differentiates Ayada Thai from the rest is their fried whole red snappers. Ayada’s fried whole fish are just as good as the ones I have had in Bangkok.
My favorite is their fried fish topped with green mango sauce. The spicy, slightly sour green mango, mixed with cashews and cilantro and shallots packs a punch of flavor.
My second favorite is their fried fish topped with Basil Sauce. The rest of the items on the menu are good, but the fried fish is what I come here for. Having ordered it numerous times over the years, I can say that the quality of the dish has always been consistent. A must visit if you love fish.
