The Yaya’s experience begins from the moment you walk in. You are immediately struck by the bamboo booths, plastic chairs, and colourful Christmas lights – a different world from the gray building exterior.
The best thing about Yaya’s was definitely the atmosphere, complete with bird sounds and thunderstorm effects that transport you to a tropical rainforest. The food is above average; the Pad Thai was good but slightly too sweet and the Paneng curry was flavourful but not outstanding. The spicy level is adjusted to Norwegian standards but you can get extra chili on the side if you ask for a higher spicy level.
If you are looking to get away from the cold Oslo weather, come to Yaya’s and experience flavourful Thai food in the midst of bamboos and Christmas lights reminiscent of a beach restaurant in Thailand.
